The Educational Supervisor: ​Arman graduated with Honours from Kings College London in 2010 being one of very few to pass every single year with distinction, and winning multiple prizes including the prestigious School Prize for the highest academic mark in his year. Arman then completed his FD year with the London Deanery, winning a further prize for the best clinical case presentation in the region. Following on, Arman worked in the oral and maxillofacial surgery department at the prestigious Eastman Dental Hospital. He was fortunate enough to work at University College Hospital and Great Ormond Street Hospital. Throughout his employment in hospital he continued to work in general dental practice, and obtained the diploma of Membership of Faculty of Dental Surgery awarded by the Royal College of Surgeons of Edinburgh. He has been involved in multiple presentations and articles including publications in International Journal of Prosthodontics and Microsurgery. Arman is a believer of post-graduate education, and has qualified with the highly-regarded Diploma in Implant Dentistry awarded by the Royal College of Surgeons of England, and then furthered this with a Masters in Implant Dentistry from URJC in Madrid. Arman has also completed a post-graduate certificate in dental education and has been working with and helping FDs at Manningtree Dental Practice since 2012 with many wanting to and thus staying on.

The Practice: We are a busy large 6 surgery practice located in the heart of the high street in the picturesque town of Manningtree. The practice is fully digital with Software of Excellence, WiFi, digital radiographs and iPads for medical history taking. There is a Dental Panoramic Tomograph and CBCT machine which is fully digital. The practice has a dedicated decontamination nurse and a separate decontamination room. The practice is equipped with intra-oral cameras, rotary endodontics, and a digital SLR for use. We also have a Denar Facebow, Denar articulator and denture surveyor for use.  The practice has been a DFT practice since 2000 with staff being very experienced with FDs. The practice has been very popular in the past for FDs with the existing FD wanting to stay on as an associate. So the new FD would benefit from additional support from dentists that have been through the same process. The practice is supported by hygienists, therapist, implantologist, and recently graduated dentists from the same FD Scheme.

The Area: Manningtree is a charming beautiful market town located on the east coast of Essex with great views of the River Stour from the practice. It is also on the London commuter belt with excellent rail and road access (A12). It is also at commuting distance from both Colchester and Ipswich which both have plenty of things to do and a vibrant nightlife. Manningtree was voted in the top 10 for the Sunday Times Best Places to live in the East of England in 2019. The practice is located in the high street amongst many local cafes, shops, pubs and restaurants. If you are into outdoor activities such as walking or watersports it is the perfect playground! 

Other Points of Interest: Testimonial from the current 2021-2022 FD: 

"With all the interruptions to my clinical practice at university as a consequence of COVID I was understandably, nervous going into FD year. Arman fortunately was very understanding, supportive and allowed me to go at my own pace. Initially I only saw a couple of patients a day which allowed me to build up my confidence and experience so then later I could gradually increase my pace. Arman is an fantastic trainer being incredibly knowledgeable, patient and happy to help as much as you need. The nurses are experienced (often 10 steps ahead of me) and are extremely helpful. They were able to show me to how to navigate the computer systems and offered useful advice which helped my clinical practice. The practice is a larger practice with five dentists working there. All of which were extremely friendly, helpful (happy to jump in if I needed help with a patient) and happy to share their experience and advice. As a consequence of this I feel that grown massively since I first started and am now confident in providing a wide range of treatment to patients both NHS and private. I have had such an amazing experience that I have decided to stay on in the practice next year."
