Although just six miles southwest of Charing Cross, Southfields' tree-lined streets and green open spaces, including Wimbledon Common, make it feel more like a rural village than a metropolitan district. With a diverse community and excellent transport links, this part of Wandsworth remains a big draw for young families and community-minded professionals.
In response to Southfields' multicultural population, many of the area's private dentist surgeries make the effort to communicate in a variety of different languages. The staff at Preventive Dental, for instance, are able to converse in Italian, Greek, Hungarian, Swedish, Polish, Czech and Afrikaans.
It's easy to access dental services outside normal business hours thanks to clinics like The Neem Tree, which stays open until 8pm on Tuesday and Thursday evenings, and have appointments available from 9am to 3pm on Saturdays.
