HEE Midlands and East
The Educational Supervisor: Adarsh is a passionate and dedicated mentor working with HEEM as an Educational Supervisor since 2012 aiding six FDs in satisfactory completion of foundation training. He believes strongly that the first year outside of dental school should not only be educational but enjoyable as well. He has a relaxed and approachable nature, which his FDs have found creates a supportive learning environment. Adarsh believes in a 'student-led' approach to training and encourages self reflection and pro-activeness in his FDs. He operates an open door policy and is always available for an informal chat and debrief throughout the working day.
Adarsh has completed his post-graduate teacher training certificate and a Masters in Restorative and Aesthetic dentistry from Manchester University. These extra qualifications helped him renew his knowledge and skills so as to help new FDs with evidence based approaches not only to practical procedures but to learning and mentor-ship as well. He looks forward to warmly welcoming our new FD to the practice.

We offer a full range of services on the NHS as well as placing and restoring implants and orthodontic treatments. We have a hygienist and five experienced, highly motivated dentists who are always available to aid FDs.
We regularly go out for dinners or evenings out, we have become involved in charity fundraising the last 5 year raising over £2500 for the NSPCC and the children’s cancer ward at the LRI, which the previous FDs have partaken in. We have gone hiking and camping in the Derbyshire Dales and bike riding at Rutland water. We have a friendly happy mix of ages and interests from various sports to travel and interior design. We look forward to welcoming future dentists embarking on the first stage of their careers.
