Neil and Poonam both appreciate that a visit to the dentist for many patients may not be easy. Together with the team at Oatlands Dental Lounge in Weybridge, they have worked very hard to make the practice relaxing and comfortable and ensure all treatment is performed to an exceptional standard.
Neil graduated in 2006 from King’s College London with multiple distinctions. Since then he has successfully dedicated his time to treating patients in primary care settings both in Weybridge, Surrey and in West London.
Neil is a friendly and passionate practitioner who strongly believes in the advantages of postgraduate education, to allow him to offer the very latest and best in evidence based treatments. He has been widely praised by his patients for his caring and professional chairside manner especially those who are apprehensive of visiting the dentist. He has been ‘Dental Phobia’ certified and routinely provides Intra-venous sedation for those who are extremely nervous. In 2007, Neil became a member of the Joint Dental Faculties at the Royal College of Surgeons, England. He went on to gain a Masters in Clinical Dentistry at Kings College London, in the field of “Fixed and Removable Prosthodontics” with distinction in 2015. In January 2016 Neil shall also complete a three year MSc in “Aesthetic Dental Implantology” to allow the advanced placement of dental implants.
Throughout his training, Neil has worked with some of the worlds’ leaders in the dental field and, this has allowed him to undertake more complex advanced cases in clinical practice involving restorative rehabilitation, cosmetic concerns, tooth wear, and replacing missing teeth. Neil also frequently travels internationally for conferences to keep abreast of all of the latest techniques within and outside of the U.K. As a firm advocate of digital implant dentistry, Neil uses a combination of CAD – CAM milling devices and 3D scanners to provide some of the most accurate techniques for implant placement planning to date. Neil also uses “Plasma rich in growth factors” (PRGF) to promote more efficient natural healing of implant sites following treatment, this is widely used to treat sporting injuries and is now at the cutting edge of modern dentistry.
