The field of dentistry has changed dramatically over the years and today I am fortunate to be practicing in an era where patient care has never been better. I am passionate about my profession and only strive to provide a specialised tailor made service to all of my patients. Under my care you can expect an enthusiastic and warming approach with complete explanation of treatment options and procedures. All treatment modalities will be made available to you so that you can make an informed choice on the best option for you. Any treatment you receive will be evidence based with a focus on minimally invasive techniques. Having completed university accredited postgraduate qualifications I am confident in providing general and routine dentistry to an advanced level as well as premium level dentistry such as custom crowns, natural smile enhancements and dental implants. My focus is strictly on providing clinical dentistry to the best of my ability using the best possible materials and techniques and through this you will only receive premium quality care and personalised follow up.
I graduated with honours from Barts and the London School of Dentistry in 2009. I soon embarked on a three years Masters program in Aesthetic Dentistry at Kings College London and was one of the few dentists in the country to receive this accolade. I completed a one year post graduate training program in surgical and prosthetic implantology in Cambridge as well as numerous other accreditations, including cosmetic orthodontics using fixed and invisible braces. I have a passion and enthusiasm towards my profession and the science and artistry it involves. I have conducted research on modern white filling materials used for back teeth and have writen a highly scientific paper and case reports for a popular dental journal in order to help guide and assist other dental professionals on modern techniques.

I have always resided and grown up in Surrey and since getting married in 2014 I have been living in Epsom with my lovely wife. Nina is a pharmacist and works close by in Raynes Park. I am very proud and lucky to have her and we are both excited to be attending for my nominations at the Aesthetic Dentistry Awards!
Since qualification I have invested heavily in my career which has been challenging yet very rewarding. I am fortunate to have always had a very close and loving family who have been very supportive. I thoroughly enjoy spending time with all of them including my two lovely nieces who I am very fond of. We always try to meet up for a weekly dinner and strive to share a family holiday at least once a year.
In my spare time my passion is to focus on health and nutrition which is an interest that developed many years ago when I battled through weight problems. I regularly train and eat well in order to keep me at my physical and mental peak. My insight and experience in nutrition has been useful in order to help me guide patients in to choosing dietary habits that will help prevent dental problems as well as other health issues such as type II diabetes and heart disease.
I love travelling & have visited many different parts of the world including Brazil, Amazon, China, Alaska, Jamaica, Haiti & many more. Life is filled with beautiful moments & I love to capture these with my interest in photography that is also shared by brother & professional photographer Ricky - www.rickypatelphotography.com
