Hi, I’m Rishi.
I graduated from King’s College London in 2005. Following this I went on to complete a vocational training post in North London and Charing Cross hospital.
I then spent 4 years in general practice in West London, carrying out all aspects of dentistry but focusing on cosmetic procedures.
Over the last 8 years I have worked in a private dental practice with in house specialists.
The most frequent question I have been asked over the years has been- How can I prevent future dental problems?
And this is what I advise;
There are many aspects to prevention of dental disease such as:
1. Diet - cutting down on sugary food and drink
2. Oral hygiene - importance of brushing correctly, using floss and seeing dental hygienists
3. Fluoride - using fluoridated toothpastes/mouthwashes
4. Maintenance - need to see dentists and hygienists regularly, ideally 6 monthly
5. Smoking cessation
I feel dentistry is the perfect profession in bringing together science, medicine & healthcare, technology, art, beauty, communication and imagination!
Cosmetic dentistry - I believe in listening to patients, understanding their wishes, and addressing their needs to the highest standards.
High patient satisfaction and meeting patient expectations gives me great pleasure. With cosmetic procedure these can easily be seen with before and after photos - with impressive results! A smiling happy patient is a great reward for the hard work I’ve put in!
“The absolute worst thing people do to their teeth is ignoring a problem and here’s why?”
I have met many patients that have admitted to an ongoing dental issue but have delayed visiting the dentist for one reason or another. The most common reason being dental phobia. This is understandable, but I would like to reassure you that modern day dental procedures should not be painful with the advances of effective anaesthesia.
Really look forward to meeting you.
