Our History & Ethos
Dr J S Sohal (senior) opened his first practice in October 1976 after graduating from Newcastle University. The first surgery was in a residential property with a converted living room in Handsworth.
In June 1977 he bought 271 soho road which was a run down electrical/television repair shop at the time. This was converted into a small single chair surgery with reception area.
In the early 80’s a massive influx of Punjabi speaking people into the area prompted the expansion as Dr J S Sohal became ever more popular within the community.
In 1983 he created a surgery upstairs, 2 chairs were now available with an expanded waiting area.
In 1992- a rear extension was started to add decontamination room, X-ray room and 3 fully equipped surgeries.
By 1993 expansion completed with ultra modern, cutting-edge equipment for it’s time (fully computerised).
Dr Sohal serviced the community with high levels of success the following years.
In 2010 Dr Sarbjit Singh Sohal joined bringing a fresh dynamic to practice. In 2013 he became principal and continues to lead the team in an effort to better the oral health of the community around them. His passion and dedication to the profession is evident in the time and effort he takes to continually improve and study in his own time to be able to offer the highest level of care to all who visit the practice.
