More about No Pain Shane

Dr. Shane Roiser BDS (Lond) MSc Aesthetic Dentistry (Lond) – Owner/ Clinical Director

Dr. Shane Roiser, AKA ‘No Pain Shane’ is the owner of The Village Dental Centre and is known for his gentle approach to dentistry along with his welcoming personality and exceptional skills. 

With a Master’s degree in Aesthetic Restorative Dentistry from Kings College London, Shane is a cosmetic and aesthetic dentist and has helped countless patients regain their confidence after crippling dental phobias. We have seen transformations for patients, who were once too fearful to even step through the practice door, have full mouth rehabilitations or even just the odd filling they had been putting off!

Shane believes half the battle lies with the relationship between patient and dentist, and the rapport built up on that vital first visit. Shane really is top of his game in this field and a dentist you need on your team!

Talking of teams, Shane was a professional rugby player before he returned to dentistry! Shane played for the Wasps Rugby Union team, so it looks like dentistry wasn’t the only thing he was top of his game in!  He is still an active member of the London Wasps Rugby Club where he plays throughout the year for ‘Wasps Legends’, a bona fide charitable foundation.

When Shane’s not in the surgery, he’s keeping himself in top condition at the gym, or taking care of his amazing two little girls. He loves travelling, eating out and is partial to the occasional glass of Malbec! Shane’s down to earth vibe and engaging personality has our patients at ease in minutes, he’s relatable with a kind approach, and will totally change your view of the ‘no nonsense’ dentists you might of had growing up or have met along the way. No Pain Shane is one of a kind… a hidden gem in the heart of the quaint little Patcham village – ready to make you smile with confidence again!
