The team

Our friendly, considerate team is made up of three dentists, five hygienists and six dental care professionals – all of whom are committed to understanding your needs, meeting your expectations and alleviating any concerns you may have.

Our dentists

In 1987, dentists Gareth and Vernon Williams set up the Williams Dental Practice in Marlborough and Hungerford. After Gareth retired in 2014, dentist Amreeta Sanghera joined Vernon as a partner followed by Vernon’s son, Christopher, who joined as an associate in September 2015. A policy of ongoing development ensures that all members of the team are best placed to make your visit as stressfree and comfortable as possible. Most of our hygienists are dual qualified as dental therapists which gives added flexibility within our team.

Vernon Williams

Vernon qualified from Liverpool University in 1983. He stayed in the north west of England working in practices in Manchester and Cheshire before joining the Williams partnership in 1987 and opened the Hungerford practice in the same year.
