Dr Munawwar Ladak

Welcome to SAFANA Dental

A lifetime of smiles

At SAFANA we believe that everyone should have access to an exceptional level of dental care. Our practice has been established in the heart of Little Chalfont for over ten years and has been designed to house a state-of-the-art surgery, delivering high-level private dentistry in a comfortable and friendly environment.

Our team is dedicated to making patients feel at ease during their visits. Our main focus is the use of minimally invasive techniques that preserve your tooth structure and work in harmony with nature, to give you a healthy and beautiful smile for life.

Exceptional Care

Our dentists offer a full range of preventative and restorative dentistry. We also have a dedicated dental hygienist and therapist available throughout the week including Saturdays.

We pride ourselves in taking the time necessary to explain fully any proposed treatment, any associated risks as well as alternative options so patients can make informed decisions about their dental care.

We firmly believe in using technology to its fullest, so use digital cameras, photographs and even computer simulations to explain any treatment and oral hygiene procedures that you may need.

You can even use our Ipad to watch your favourite TV show on-demand, or choose to listen to your favourite music whilst having your treatments!

We also provide dental sedation enabling anxious and nervous patients to undergo routine or specialist treatment. Dr Ladak has previously worked at the Sedation and Special Care Dentistry department at Guy’s Hospital teaching both undergraduate and postgraduate students.

Digital Dentistry

Using the latest state-of-the-art technology

Dr Munawwar Ladak firmly believes in using technology to benefit our patients. As well as using our digital cameras/x-rays during our dental assessments and treatments, we have now also invested in a digital scanner at the practice, to accurately facilitate our more advanced treatments.

Our iTero intraoral scanner uses laser and optical scanning for taking teeth impressions, without the wait and discomfort of conventional methods. The scanner makes it possible for dental impressions to be taken without the need to place any putty or paste inside your mouth. This state-of-the-art technology results in an extremely accurate 3D model of your teeth and gums, which you will be able to instantly see during your visit.

Dr Ladak and the team can use this cutting-edge digital impression system to predict the results of dental treatments such as Invisalign, dental implants, and dental crowns or bridges.

    Dr Munawwar Ladak is an excellent dentist. He is attentive, diligent and professional.
    Always maintains the highest standards of dental care.
    I recently had some fillings done at the clinic and I am so so happy with the result, aesthetically and functionally.
    Would definitely highly recommend Dr Ladak (this coming from a dentist).

    Dr Aisha Mohamad (Dental Surgeon)

    Staff are very friendly. The Dentist “Mr Ladak” is very professional. Made me completely at ease and talked/explained the whole process before the treatment with pictures and continued giving me information the whole way through the treatment. Made sure I was comfortable. Very talented and skilled dentist. I would recommend him to all my friends and family.

    S J

    Munawar’s manner and clinical skills surpass all expectations. He explains all options thoroughly and makes you feel comfortable every step of the way. I can smile again without being conscious of any gaps/missing tooth! I literally skipped out of the clinic with a massive grin because I was so pleased. Thank you Munawar & Team ?

    Neelam Mohamed

THANKYOU .. You really have put a smile on my face ? Carl M

    Carl Miller

    Everything a private dentist should be – utterly professional, totally reliable, patient friendly, well staffed and fair priced. Dr Ladak provides one-on-one care above the call of duty. Never thought I’d say it was a pleasure going to the dentist! Highly recommended. Thanks team Safana

    Rosie Symons

    If you are looking for a dentist who will provide you with professional care and advice with top of the range equipment and skill sets-look no further. I have been coming to Safana Clinic since 2008 and Dr Ladak is simply the best! He spends time creating white fillings and composites that match your own teeth and they are indiscernible from your own teeth.



    I have been getting treatment from Safana since 2013 and I have had best patient care every single time. Everything is explained in detail and done the right way by taking as much time as possible without rushing it. It is a bit far from the city, but considering the quality of the service and it’s importance it is totally worth the commute.
