HEE Midlands and East
The Educational Supervisor: My name is Shanta Mestry, I am a principle and ES since 2006 and 2008 respectively. I have experience and skills in general dental practice to assist newly qualified dentists in mentorship, and adaptation to clinical dental practice. I believe strongly in the dental foundation programme, my team and myself are very supportive and experienced in dealing with different FDs in the past and feel passionate about the dental foundation programme. I have an extensive CV and skill set to assist applicants in amalgamating into the dental team and coping with varied clinical experience at foundation training level . We support our FDs with induction, training and team support. Independent practice can be stressful and as an experienced team we can support and assist you in adapting to these changes with clinical support, tutorials, case based discussion and performer clinical support as well. I believe in an open door policy and daily peer review and discussion keeping the team up to date with current regulation and practice. We are an open transparent team focused on patient care and upholding the ethical standards of our GDC registration.
