Experienced, family friendly dentists in Crouch End

Getting any sort of dental treatment can be a nerve-wracking experience, but at our Crouch End dental practice, we have a team of professionals on hand to make sure every aspect of your care goes smoothly.

Principal dentist

Dr Maya Gwynne


GDC number: 79443

Maya graduated from Leeds University in 2001, and has lived and worked in London since 2003. 

Maya acquired Middle Lane Dental back in 2008. Back then, the practice was still in its infancy - little more than a single room in the back of a pharmacy. However, when the pharmacy moved on, Maya took the opportunity to renovate the space and create a practice that revolved her own priorities in dentistry - creating a calming environment full of friendly staff, dedicated to taking the stress out of dental visits. 

Maya really enjoys the village feel of Crouch End as it reminds her of her time working ‘up North’!
