Dr Patel has a keen interest in periodontology and a wealth of experience in treating even the most complex of cases. He is passionate about the foundational role it plays in his patients’ oral health and indeed their general health.

His knowledge and expertise in both surgical and non-surgical periodontal therapy mean he is able to assess, plan and treat a variety of cases.

After graduating from the University of Glasgow, Dr Patel grew his arsenal of skills in general dentistry, across northern Scotland. During this time, he was the highest-achieving trainee dentist and was honoured with the accolade of VT Dentist of the Year North Scotland 2011/12.

In his endeavour to deliver exceptional gum care for his patients, he enrolled on a 3-year postgraduate MSc training programme in Clinical Periodontology at the University of Central Lancashire, graduating with Merit in 2016. Since 2017, he has been welcoming periodontal referrals.

In every instance, Dr Patel works with diligence to produce the very best outcomes for his patients. His meticulous approach to planning and carrying out treatment has cemented his reputation as a highly dependable and sought-after clinician. He also loves to help and support patients in transforming their lifestyle and at-home oral health habits, so they can preserve their natural teeth in the future.

My Values

It’s my belief that the following values are integral to delivering great periodontal care and treatment for my patients. I will:

  • Deliver excellence: I am devoted to delivering outstanding treatment for patients, as I understand how life-changing periodontal care can be when it is performed to a high standard. The treatment I deliver is based on sound evidence, and I am continuously researching to harness the best techniques available to me.
  • Further to my skillset: I believe that to be a great dentist, you should be continuously looking to develop your skill base. That’s why I’m always partaking in advanced courses to further my proficiency in periodontics.
  • Be a great listener: I’ll always listen to your expectations of treatment and questions, so I can help you find solutions.
  • Be supportive: I will support nervous patients struggling with dental phobia and will help them develop a better rapport with what it means to visit the dentist. I take great pride in seeing such patients change their perception of the dentist, having found new confidence after treatment.
