Dr Munawwar Ladak


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 eight 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 based at our sister practice at Nightingale Dental Care.

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.

Hygienist & Therapist

Dental hygienists and dental therapists are specially trained to work with the dentist to give care to patients and can help with your treatment plan. They play a vitally important part in dental health care.

Dental hygienists are mainly concerned with ‘preventive’ dental health and treating gum disease – showing you correct home care and helping you to keep your teeth and gums healthy. This includes professionally cleaning your teeth by removing plaque and tartar (usually called a ‘scale and polish’). However, perhaps their most important role is showing you the best way to keep your teeth free of plaque. Plaque is a sticky coating that forms constantly on your teeth. Hygienists also give advice about diet and about preventing tooth decay. The hygienist will work with your dentist to give you the care that is tailored to your needs.

Dental hygienists can also take dental x-rays. The dentist will use these to help diagnose problems and decide on the possible treatment. Dental hygienists can also place fissure sealants, apply fluoride varnishes and administer fluoride treatments. Tooth-whitening is also often carried out by the dental hygienist, under a prescription from your dentist.

As well as doing all the work that a dental hygienist does, a dental therapist can also carry out some dental procedures that patients are more used to a dentist doing. A dental therapist can perform fillings, extract ‘baby’ teeth, place preformed crowns on baby teeth and undertake treatments using all the materials a dentist would use. As long as an adult tooth does not need treatment to the nerve of the tooth, a dental therapist can fill or restore any part of the tooth that needs treatment. They do not undertake restorations, such as crowns, to adult teeth.

Selchia Selvendran is qualified as both hygienist and therapist at Safana.

What Our Patients Say About Us

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.


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

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.
