Welcome to The Natural Dentist
Dentistry with a different approach
Meet Dr Shaila Patel-Buxton, who specialises in providing dental treatment to nervous patients, as well as using holistic dentistry to treat patients overall health and wellbeing.
She creates an emotionally safe space, for patients to discuss their fears and concerns without judgement and explore possibilities for treatment.
Shaila has been mentored by
Dr Jenny Pinder, a pioneer in the treatment of dental phobia
Thank you so much for all your patience and kindness when treating me and for helping me overcome my fear of dentists.

I feel it is an honour to work as a dentist and be lucky enough to meet a cross section of society, people of all different ages and from all different backgrounds.
I am really motivated by my patients’ stories, and sometimes they have compelled me to take further action…
FROM THE PAIN OF BROKEN TEETH, BACK TO SMILING AND LIVING!
An extreme fear of the dentist had Natasha living with a painful mouth for many years. She rarely smiled fully, didn’t talk openly and avoided being social. Natasha endured years of oral problems as she really feared going to the see the dentist...
After visiting Shaila
I’m a completely different person in company and am very confident with my smile now as it looks natural. I have check-ups every six months and also see the hygienist – it’s a 100% turn around.
- Natasha - Nervous Patient -
You have been wonderful every step of the way in my transformation and recovery. I will always be grateful for you putting me on the right track by being sincere, kind, caring and informative and empowering me to make the correct lifestyle choices..

I’ve volunteered for the charity Global Angels in Burma and produced a short video to help demonstrate the amazing work this charity does, training local doctors, dentists and teachers to deliver healthcare and help save lives.
What my Patients Say
I could not have been in better hands or wished for better care from the one I received from Shaila whilst undergoing the treatment which took nearly two years. Even now, some months after the treatment has been completed, I still smile every morning when I look in the mirror. My teeth look perfect and no one can tell. I am deeply grateful and would recommend Shaila to anyone.
