At Zero:Seven, our small team makes a big difference every day to people’s smiles – and people’s lives. We favour a personal yet professional approach, and are just as well-known for our warm and friendly team as we are for our expert care. We aim to put even the most nervous patients at ease, and celebrate every smile we work with – often loving the results just as much as you do! Read on for a bit more about our team and get to know us ahead of your treatment.
We adhere to – and surpass – strict guidelines set by the General Dental Council, the body that regulates dental practices across the UK.
Dr Tushar ‘Tush’ Enaker qualified from the Royal London Hospital in 1995. He worked as a house officer in Oral Maxillofacial Surgery at the Royal London and St Bartholomew’s Hospitals and spent a year in Basildon carrying out vocational training before setting up the Zero:Seven Dental Practice EC1 in 2003.
He enjoys all aspects of dentistry but has a special interest in cosmetic and implant dentistry, where he creates smile makeovers with the use of both dental and facial aesthetics. He regularly attends CPD courses to keep abreast of the changes in modern dentistry and believes in carrying out ethical and minimally-invasive dentistry.
Tush’s calm, friendly nature puts patients immediately at ease, whatever their treatment, and he always takes the time to sit and discuss any treatment through, helping his patients choose the right option for them.
In his spare time, Tush enjoys art and making music and short films.
During his 22 years of experience, Dr Christian Pintado has aimed to provide excellent dentistry which meets the patient’s needs, carefully tailoring individual treatments to reflect each person’s personality through their smile.
He provides the best cosmetic results and long-term oral health possible for each patient. Guided by an initial Digital Smile Design, he offers all dental treatments to restore and enhance your own unique smile. The procedures include aligning teeth (using Invisalign invisible braces), managing gums (reducing, increasing or levelling) and restoring teeth (whitening, dental restorations and ceramic or composite veneers).
His ethos is ‘minimally- invasive dentistry’ – preserving most of the tooth structure with a ‘biomimetic approach’ – imitating natural enamel and dentine in shape, texture and translucency when restoring teeth.
Christian works at our dental practice on Mondays.
Dr Mehul Patel qualified from King’s College London University in 2013. Following graduation, Mehul worked at a local NHS dental practice and completed a year working in the Oral and Maxillofacial team in Luton and Dunstable. This post gave Mehul the skills needed to deal with complex surgical treatments, as well as allowing him to be able to identify a number of oral diseases.
Next, Mehul completed his Diploma of the Membership of the Joint Dental Faculties at the Royal College of Surgeons of England. He is currently completing his extensive three-year Periodontology Specialist training at Queen Mary’s Dental Hospital. He is passionate about periodontology and the important role it plays in the oral and general health of patients. He is also qualified in implant treatment.
Mehul is committed to providing high-quality treatment and wants all his patients to feel happy and confident with their teeth and gums.
Dr John Alton graduated from Newcastle University in 2011. While in Newcastle upon Tyne, he completed further study with post graduate training in implants and orthodontics, mentoring of dentists, and a position on the Local Dental Committee.

She is passionate about preventative dentistry and the maintenance of a high level of good oral health, which she strives to help her patients achieve. She also attends regular seminars, courses and conferences to expand her remit and stay on top of the most up-to-date dental procedures.
Klady is the senior dental nurse at Zero:Seven Dental. She qualified in 2003 and I also achieved a treatment co-ordinator course in 2011.
Klady enjoys being part of a very dedicated and hardworking team, which enables Zero:Seven to deliver the highest quality dental care to each and every person that comes through the door. Her experienced and calming manner helps puts everyone at ease.
My name is Alexandra Maria Nastase (Alex) and I am one of the nurses at Zero Seven Dental Practice. I first came to London in 2015 and two years later I joined the ABI College where I studied Diploma in Dental Nursing from where I happily qualified in 2019 .
Working alongside professionals at ZeroSeven has helped me boost my confidence and gradually improve my knowledge in the dental field. The unlimited help and kind advice from my senior nurse is definitely the key to overcome my quiet and shy nature. There is no question of a doubt that I love my job. That is why I continuously attend webinars, meetings where possible and also courses so I keep myself up to date and improve my knowledge.
I am currently undergoing Oral Hygiene Advisory course at British Dental Association.
Charlotte was a former patient of the practice and came to us looking for a change of career. She has since gone on to work on our reception, and has formed great relationships with both the team and our patients. Her friendly, likeable manner make her a firm favourite with many patients.
