Meet the team
Dr. Sachin Patel
Principal Dental Surgeon BDS GDC No: 75797
Dr. Sachin Patel has been practicing dentistry for over 15 years since qualifying from Manchester University in 1999.
Throughout his career, Sachin has made it his mission to provide patients with beautiful smiles whilst working around a simple and important ethos – every one of his patients are cared for as if they were his own family. This philosophy is integral to his work and ensures honest and caring dentistry synonymous with the principles of Savay Dental Care.
Sachin has wide experience and a keen interest in both restorative and cosmetic dentistry. Extensive training and mentoring from the UK’s top dentists allows him to find the very best solutions to his patient’s needs. He is also trained in performing facial aesthetic treatments using Botox and dermal fillers.
Sachin works with his patients to educate them on the different solutions to a problem, working together to tailor the perfect treatment plan that fits with their lifestyle and needs. He strongly believes in the saying ‘an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure’, and this is not only for dental health but for the overall well-being of his patients. With this way of thinking his dentistry is predominantly based on minimally invasive techniques using modern high-tech equipment and evidence based dentistry.
When not in the surgery, Sachin enjoys spending time and having fun with his beautiful wife, Sonal and their three children, Shiv, Siyana and Shanay. His family describe Sachin as considerate, caring and positive; qualities that play a key role in his work with Savay Dental Care.

As a team with the technical support and the assistance of our patient care coordinator you can be sure that your care will be our primary focus, every step of the way.
Dr Rushil Lachhani
BDS Merit (Bris)
Rushil graduated from the University of Bristol, School of Oral and Dental Sciences as one of the highest achieving students in his year. At graduation he was awarded the prestigious ‘Gordon Gray Prize in Practical Conservative Dentistry’ as the top student in his year in this field of dentistry.
Since qualifying he has continued to further develop his knowledge and enhance his skills. Whilst successfully completing his foundation year in the East of England Deanery, Bedford scheme, he has attended various post-graduate courses. This includes courses covering anterior alignment orthodontics, endodontics and cosmetic treatment.
Rushil’s main interests within dentistry lie in carrying out drill-free and minimally invasive treatment, with a special interest in the artistry of composite (white) fillings. His friendly manner will help to put you at ease, and nothing satisfies him more than making sure a patient is well informed about any treatment that is to be provided. He has a strong focus on attention to detail and prides himself in delivering a high standard of care. The best part of his day is seeing his patients walk away with a smile on their face.
Outside of dentistry, Rushil enjoys playing 8-a-side football once a week and going to the gym. He is an avid supporter of Manchester United, making sure he regularly attends games. He also enjoys spending time with his friends and family, cooking, travelling and photography.
Sonal will be your first point of contact at Savay Dental Care. She has a wealth of experience managing the day to day running of the practice.
She is very courteous and a respected member of the team. She appreciates the importance of patient care, making sure that our patients are made to feel comfortable and at ease. Her friendly and helpful personality allows her to make each visit a personal one for you.
Janet comes along with over 30 years of experience in dentistry. Janet formerly worked with the President of the American Dental Society, followed by a number of pioneering dentists on Harley street. She comes with extensive experience ranging from setting up dental clinics for specialists, Implant companies, surgical nursing and managing dental teams.
As our treatment coordinator Janet epitomises our philosophy of going the extra mile. We don’t just treat patients, we look after them. If you have a dental phobia, scarred by past dental experiences, Janet is at hand to spend time with you making your experience at Savay warm and stress free.
Janet is an asset to our practice.
I have been a dental patient of Sachin Patel for many years. I am a very nervous patient and Sachin is always gentle and takes time to explain the procedures before he starts any treatment.
I was a very nervous patient who hadn’t been near a dentist in over thirty years. What a find! He instantly put me at ease and explained fully the treatment that I would require.
Barbara (a very satisfied patient)
We cannot speak too highly of his abilities as a first class and ‘up to date’ dental surgeon. He has enormous skill and ability and combines these qualities with a lightness of touch, ‘soft hands’ and a caring manner.
Finlay and Caroline
The whole experience from start to finish was positive, and knowing I could call you with any concerns was very reassuring, and with yourself and vangellis talking me through every step and stage of my treatment made it a good experience for me.
