The Educational Supervisors: Amit has been and ES since 2015 and is thoroughly enjoying teach, supporting and guiding his FDs. Amit graduated from the University of Liverpool in 2011 and has been in general practice since. He has an MSc in Primary Dental Care and a Postgraduate Certificate in Dental Education. He took on the challenge of owning his own practice 3 years ago, and has since made exceptional improvement in this practice.
Never forget, there is plenty more to life than just Dentistry. Amit also enjoys traveling, going to the gym and playing sports - mainly football and golf.
The Practice: The practice has five surgeries. We first opened our doors in 1991 and it has grown, organically, with Vocational/Foundation Training at its heart.
With Amit taking over a few years ago, the practice has been newly refurbished. It is fully computerised with Software of Excellence (EXACT) and digital x-rays. We have an excellent team of nurses and receptionists who are experienced in Foundation Training and well placed to meet the changing needs of a Foundation Dentist throughout the year.
We are passionate to remain within the NHS and continue to deliver quality dentistry to our patients within a NHS funded contract. Opportunity does exist for practicing a small amount of Dentistry under Private contract where appropriate.
Our patients are drawn from a wide variety of backgrounds and needs. Opportunity exists here to gain a wide experience of all aspects of Dentistry within a relaxed yet very supportive environment.
Currently we have three Performer dentists, one a former FD at the practice.
We have two part time hygienists who are students upon the Foundation Degree Hygienist training program offered by the University of Essex. We also have 2 part-time qualified hygienist working at the practice.
The practice is situated within a small outdoor shopping centre comprising a mini Asda, WH Smiths, Post Office, Pharmacy, and plenty of great food places.
