About Us

Chantry House Dental Practice was established over 25 years ago and has become a key part of the local community. Our central location in Barnham means we can easily serve the local villages but the nearby A27 and the other good access roads means we can also offer our services to Bognor Regis, Chichester, and beyond within a 15 minute drive. We have free car park on site with space for up to 12 cars.

We offer a relaxed and friendly atmosphere in the practice and our staff are highly trained and motivated in their work.

Creating Brighter Smiles

At Chantry House Dental Practice we offer first class dental care in a relaxed and family-friendly environment. Our downstairs surgery is large and airy with views over the gardens and has disabled access. Upstairs we have a very active hygiene program where our hygienists will help you fight the battle against plaque build up and decay. Outside we have ample free parking right at the front door.

The practice features the latest in dental technology including intra-oral cameras and chair side computer screens so we can show you a detailed picture of the treatment required.

We offer an efficient service and pride ourselves on keeping any waiting time to a minimum. We are accepting new private patients and we offer Denplan. Please give us a call with any questions you may have and we look forward to welcoming you and your family to the practice.

As a practice we emphasise preventative dentistry. Our busy hygiene programme and our dentists focus on preventative treatments and advice are key elements. However, when more extensive dentistry is required we also offer all aspects of general dental care as well as cosmetic treatments such as veneers and tooth whitening.

Principal Dentist

Dr.Anitha Diwakar

I am the principal dentist and Clinical Director at Chantry house Dental Practice. I qualified as a dental surgeon in 1999 from India and have since accomplished extensive training in the oral and maxillofacial department in various hospitals across the country. I obtained MFDS (Membership of Faculty of Dental Surgery) from the Royal College of Surgeons in Glasgow in 2004.

Having developed extensive surgical skills I passed the statutory exam from Eastman Dental Hospital, London in 2006 and then completed my vocational training with Kent Surrey Sussex deanery in 2008. I have been providing comprehensive high quality dental care to patients in West Sussex for over 10 years.

I always strive to keep up to date with the evolving profession and have obtained postgraduate diploma in Restorative dentistry from the Royal College of Surgeons, London in 2015.

I take pride in providing ethical, evidence based and patient centered care in a safe and friendly environment.

Outside dentistry, I am trained Indian classical dancer, singer and play the Veena which is a string instrument. In my spare time I enjoy the various classes at the local leisure center.

I live with my husband and son and together enjoy travelling, cycling, and exploring various cuisines.

Dr Simon Jones

Associate Dentist

I qualified as a dentist in 1993 from the Royal London Hospital Medical College and continued my  training in the hospital service for two years to become a Senior House Officer in maxillo-facial surgery, working in London and South Wales.

After backpacking around the world for a year, I then settled into practice near Brighton and then back to the Chichester area where I now live.

I married to Ritu, an orthodontist and loves spending time with his two young daughters.

Any other free time is occupied by my love of photography, music and movies.

“My ethos is to provide excellent all round care for my patients. I really enjoy people and take pride in providing the best service possible”
