About Us

The Practice

I have owned the Croft for over fifteen years and am the principal dentist. We have a settled staff base helped out during holidays by a few hand-picked temps or my wife, or even daughters on occasion, who are all trained to provide efficient and friendly service. We have three excellent hygienists who are sympathetic and encouraging. Most of our patients have been with us for many years.

The emphasis within the practice is on mninimally invasive and preventative dentistry - we really want to avoid you needing any treatment.

Chris Sugden

Owner and principal dentist
GDC No. 69468
I have an interest in general dentistry, tooth wear and the older dentition and minimally invasive dentistry. I teach three sessions a week at Manchester Dental School and this has become a passion.

I live with my wife, two teenage daughters and two dogs in Buxton.

Manpreet Kahlon

Associate dentist
GDC No. 169839
We are lucky to have found Manny who has worked as a locum throughout Chris's incapacity and has now agreed to become a permanent member of staff.He shares the practice ideals of providing minimally invasive care with the latest techniques and materials. He also has a special interest in endodontics (root canal treatment and its avoidance).
Manny likes to use his operating microscope to ensure that his high standards are met when providing root treatments and restoring your teeth.

He lives in Cheshire with his wife and two young children. In his spare time he enjoys cycling and, during the quiet of the COVID-19 crisis, has found an interest in gardening.

Manny keeps his own website and blog at:
