I take immense pride in what we’re achieving with the practice. Thanks to a brilliant team and lovely patients, Finchley Dental Lounge really is my home from home.

Here is a little about us. When you visit, we hope you will share something about you...
Dr. Robert Durling
Dentist and owner
Hello – and thanks for visiting.
Having qualified from Manchester University and after many years practising on the Kings Road in Chelsea, I opened Finchley Dental Lounge in 2010. I love transforming people’s attitudes towards dentistry and my mission is to prove that dentists don’t have to be scary!
I really love what I do; aside from the practice, I undertake around 100 hours of dental courses per year and enjoy swotting up on the latest dental developments in my spare time. Naturally, my wife thinks I’m crazy.
Professionally, I am experienced in cosmetic dentistry and whitening procedures, denture-work and orthodontics and recently completed the Chris Orr course in Advanced Cosmetic and Restorative Dentistry. But qualifications aside, I suppose my real joy is looking after nervous and apprehensive patients.
I have a beautiful (and patient) wife Samantha and have two lovely girls, Scarlett (4) and Savannah (2). They are happy to support me in my other passion – cooking – they are wonderful guinea pigs when I experiment with new recipes!
Dr. Victor Gehani (Vic)
Hi, I’m Vic.
I was working here before Finchley Dental Lounge took over so apart from knowing some of you already, I’m really excited to see all the changes and be part of the future plans.
Rob and I have a similar approach to patients and with recent additions like the movie glasses (a friendly treatment distraction!) and drinks menu I can see great things ahead, especially thanks to your feedback and help.
I have been practising for over 10 years and have trained at the London’s Eastman Dental Institute, Bristol University and currently I’m burning the midnight oil at Warwick University for a Masters in Implant Dentistry. As you can tell I love to learn and if you have any questions, you can rest assured that you’ll get a thorough explanation (just tell me to stop if I bore you with the details!!)
Outside of work, I try to fend off old age by playing football and tennis regularly. I’m married to Pooja and father to Amber and Aarav.
Receptionist and Customer Care Manager
Hello all. My name is Jackie.
I have been qualified as a dental nurse for over 10 years and it's motivating to join a practice that genuinely puts the patients first.
My job is to ensure that you are comfortable and informed – and I’ve really enjoyed meeting everyone so far.
Outside of work, I live in north London with my husband and two children. You might catch me at a concert, at the theatre or for my sins, munching popcorn in the cinema.
If you have any questions or worries about treatment (or ideas for making Finchley Dental Lounge a better place), do get in touch. I look forward to seeing you!
