I am a specialist in Periodontics, mono-specialty consultant, honorary senior clinical lecturer and clinical supervisor in the department of periodontology at Guy’s and St Tomas’ Hospital and King’s College London. I qualified as a dentist more than 15 years ago and completed my specialist training at the renowned Eastman Dental Institute (UCL).  Since, I have always strive to  develop my skills further to provide my patients with the highest standard in the treatment they receive.  Furthermore, I am currently focusing my research on the latest surgical techniques to maximise aesthetics in dental implants as well as the newest modalities of periodontal treatment alongside the  department of periodontology at King’s College London. In November 2020 I successfully defended my PhD thesis.
