Our Principal Dentist, Dr Shejal Patel BDS, graduated in 1996. Shejal has been working in general dentistry in the UK since 2005 and prior to this she worked overseas as a dentist and has done considerable work for international charities based in East Africa.
Shejal heads up the clinical team and is passionate about her work. Shejal is a great down to earth talker and likes to keep the clinical team working to high standards and in line with the national clinical governance framework.
Our philosophy has come from her constantly quoting to the staff and patients “it is simple, it is about healthy teeth and gums”. Most of her patients would agree that she takes time talking to them about treatments and options. Shejal has special interests in cosmetic dentistry and smile makeovers and has attended numerous courses to help patients achieve that perfect smile.
