Dentistry is my life

I completed a surgical degree in 1961 and my postgraduate qualification in dental radiology in 1964, both back ‘home’ in India. I moved to the UK in October 1966 and qualified here as a dental surgeon and earned the Amalgamated Dental Award from the Faculty of Dental Surgery, Royal College of Surgeons of England in 1985.

Dentistry is my life, it’s my hobby, my vocation, and my passion. I’ve owned the practice for 48 years and during that time many patients have become friends — they always come first.

Outside of work I enjoy photography and live in Dulwich.

A born and bred dentist

Dentistry has always been a huge part of my life, in fact I was born and bred in the flat above our surgery in Crystal Palace where my father Lalit was practising as a dentist.

I followed him into the profession and trained at dental school at Guy’s Hospital where I was Student President, and I am one of only a few dentists in the country to complete a Master’s Degree in Dentistry at the prestigious Eastman Dental Hospital in London.

I’m extremely proud of the long-term relationships that I’ve built up with my patients over the past 25 years and the high-quality work that my team of dentists and hygienists do at our patient-centred practice in Gipsy Hill.

Outside of my own work, I act as a mentor for other dentists and am married with two grown-up children. I also love playing golf.

BDS, Postgraduate Certificate in Aesthetic Dentistry, Invisalign Go provider
GDC: 211409

Making your perfect smile as easy as ABC

I qualified from Kings College London in 2011 and since then have developed a great interest in aesthetic dentistry. Having completed one of the most prestigious aesthetic courses in the country — led by Dr Basil Mizrahi in 2018 — I carried out many different types of cosmetic cases such as composite build ups (reshaping the teeth with white fillings) veneers, bridges and crowns.

I’m also a certified Invisalign Go provider, which means I am able to offer my patients the confident smile that they deserve through minimally invasive dentistry, something we call ‘the famous ABC’: aligning the teeth straight, bleach them to make them white and bond them with composite fillings to beautify the teeth.

I’m always enhancing my skills and knowledge, and the latest step in my journey is to take a course in sedation so my anxious patients can receive treatment in their most relaxed state.

When I’m not at work my two children keep me very busy, but I do also try to find time to bake and read. I am also bilingual and speak English and Chinese.

I was born and grew up in Portugal, and qualified as a dentist in the capital city of Lisbon in 2011 before studying for a Postgraduate Diploma in Aesthetic Dentistry in Madrid.

After moving to the UK in 2013 I developed an interest in endodontics (root canal treatment) and have pursued advanced training and a Master’s Degree in Endodontics at King’s College London, meaning I can carry out complex endodontic treatments.

I obtained a Diploma of Membership of the Joint Dental Faculties at the Royal College of Surgeons and a BSc in Biomedical Science from King’s College prior to studying dentistry.

I offer all aspects of general dental treatment and help my patients achieve the perfect smile through Invisalign treatment and other cosmetic dentistry – perfect for those selfies and virtual calls!

Providing specialist, holistic care

I qualified in 2011 from the University of Bristol Dental Hospital. Following completion of vocational training, I gained further surgical experience in my roles as an oral and maxillofacial surgery dental core trainee and oral surgery specialty doctor in both the North-West and London. Subsequently I commenced and successfully completed oral surgery speciality training at Kings and Guys Hospital London and am now recognised by the General Dental Council as a Specialist Oral Surgeon.

Alongside my clinical work, I have also successfully completed the qualification in the Diploma of Membership of the Faculty of Dental Surgery (MFDS) and Postgraduate Certificate in Dental Education. I have presented regionally, nationally and internationally on a range of oral surgery related topics whilst also publishing in several peer-reviewed papers.

I am committed to delivering a high standard of surgical treatment and providing treatment in a painless and timely manner. I am an advocate of holistic care, taking time to understand my patients’ needs prior to them attending for treatment whilst also proactively conducting post-operative follow-up. I endeavour to perform treatment in a calm and relaxed environment and am always happy to discuss referrals at great length in order to facilitate the highest standard of care for all patients.

I welcome referrals from partner dentists for patients requiring non-surgical and surgical tooth extractions, third molar surgery and soft tissue surgery including biopsies. Building partnerships with referring dentists is key to my approach to ensure that the care I provide is considered an extension of their own. I very much look forward to considering dental referrals and working with dentists to provide efficient, timely and comprehensive care for people across the area.
