HEE Midlands and East
The Educational Supervisors:
Rahendra Naidoo: I qualified in 1991 from University of the Western Cape and have been working as an associate and as a practice partner. I have also completed a Diploma in Restorative Dental Practice in 2002 from Eastman's Dental Institute. I enjoy the integration of dental implants and cosmetic dentistry into restorative work and my additional interests include occlusal wear and TMJ dysfunction. I split my time working across both the Bedford and Clapham sites and share the training of the FD with Kiran. Being an ES is very rewarding, I enjoy and look forward to navigating the new FD through their exciting year at de-ientes. When I am not working, I enjoy spending time with my family, and have a keen interest in cars.
Kiran Jutla: I qualified from Birmingham Dental School in 2005 and did my Foundation Training here at De-ientes. I thoroughly enjoyed my time here and stayed on as an associate. In 2011 I became an ES. I share supervision with Rahendra Naidoo. I enjoy many aspects of dentistry but I have a keen interest in crowns/veneers, composite restorations & teeth whitening and I enjoy the rewards when successfully dealing with nervous patients. Working at De-ientes is always exciting – the staff and the patients create a wonderful blend and the working environment is always positive. When I am not at the surgery, I can be found shopping – it’s not an addiction….(honestly!). I like to do the odd non-dental course too and have a certificate in Interior Design. To relax I enjoying singing, boxing and charity work. I have recently taken up painting; my recent artwork is displayed at the practice.
Saroshan Naidoo: I qualified from Sheffield dental School and look foward to working with the new FD.
