General and Implant Dentist

GDC no. 104008

I qualified from Kings College London School of Dentistry in 2006. After completing my training year in Leicester, I returned to London to complete a Senior House Officer (SHO) year at Guys and Kings College Hospitals. In this year I worked in the Paediatric, Acute dentistry and Oral Surgery Departments.
After this year, I was employed by Kings College Hospital working as a Clinical Fellow in Oral Surgery. This year was a very enjoyable one, in which I carried out complex surgical procedures under IV sedation. I was also involved with teaching the undergraduate students and marking them on their clinical competencies.
I then embarked on my practice career. Dental Implants have always interested me, combining the surgical and restorative sides of dentistry. I have embarked on many years of courses on the subject and have now decided to formalise my training by studying for my MSc in Implant Dentistry. Part of my MSc has involved working with a renowned Harley Street Implant Dentist on complex implant cases.
My other main interests lie in cosmetic dentistry. My training with cosmetic dentistry has involved various courses in Invisalign clear braces and other cosmetic treatments.

I am also a trainer for newly qualified dentists. My role involves, mentoring and assessing foundation dentists to make sure they are working to a high standard. More recently, I have been involved in the national interviews for the recruitment of newly qualified dentists.

The way approach my treatment is simple; as if they were a family member. I will only do on a patient that I would carry out on a member of my own family.

I graduated from King’s College London in 2015, having studied at Guy’s and King’s College Hospitals. During this time I attained degrees in both Pharmacology and Dentistry.

Since then, I have worked in general practice in Edinburgh and undertaken further training whilst working in the Oral and Maxillofacial surgery team in Addenbrookes Hospital, Cambridge. During this time I helped to care for patients with head and neck cancer, facial trauma, as well as developing my skills in oral surgery.

I am a Member of the Royal College of Surgeons of England – achieved after passing further examinations – and also the British Society of Periodontology and the British Society of Prosthodontics. I enjoy all aspects of dentistry, but have a particular interest in periodontology (the management of gum disease) and oral surgery.
