Dentist BDS Lond 1999
I qualified from the Royal London hospital in 1999.
Following a highly rewarding training year in Chelmsford, I gained an associate position in Battersea.
I held the position for 8 years prior to joining Riverside in 2008.
Whilst in London I developed a special interest in restorative dentistry. This led me to complete a comprehensive postgraduate restorative based course at the Eastman Institute in Central London.
I also completed a specific surgical/restorative implant course at the Eastman prior to my move to Riverside. The reconstructive interest has been greatly enhanced under the guidance of Amit Mistry, our in-house surgical colleague.
Short-term orthodontics and minimally invasive aesthetic dentistry are my other main area of interest. We are currently very fortunate to use predictable systems to greatly improve the smile with minimal drilling in minimal time.
Understanding the function of teeth/jaw position/ joint muscles is imperative in delivering predictable treatment. Hence a great amount of time has been invested to hone the knowledge required to provide tailored treatment plans for all my clients.
I have also developed an interest in tooth wear/night grinding and headache management.
On a personal note, I am married to Dipali and we have 2 girls, Mia and Anaiya. As the girls are still quite young most of our spare time is spent looking/running after them! I play tennis for my local club and greatly enjoy travelling when possible.
