    Prash Patel - Principal Dentist

    GDC No. 69461

    I qualified from Manchester Dental school in 1993. 

    I have been principal dentist at Beech Lane Dental Care since 2008.

    I have over 25 years’ experience in helping patients feel relaxed and comfortable.

    Having attended many training courses on implants and cosmetic dentistry throughout the world, I have the skills and experience to give my patients the smile they have always wanted, enabling them to smile and eat with confidence.

    My main interests in dentistry are dental implants, cosmetic dentistry and endodontics.

    I am experienced in the All-on-4 dental implant technique whereby I can restore a patients smile and ability to chew in 1 day.

    I am a past chairperson of the Reading Section of the BDA. I am a full member of the British Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry.

    I am married to Ritu and we have two children, Niam and Sunay, both teenage boys with whom I spend most of my free time, unless I am hacking my way around a golf course.

    GDC No. 69282

    I qualified from Bristol University in 1993 and joined Beech Lane team in February 2009.

    I enjoy all aspects of general dentistry but I have a special interest in orthodontics. I took a further orthodontic course as part of my diploma at Bristol University (DPDS). I also held a Clinical Orthodontic Assistant post at the Royal Hampshire County Hospital, Winchester.

    Since then I have trained in Six Month Smiles and I am a certified Invisalign provider.

    I am married to Prash and we have two boys who are growing up too fast! Outside of work, I like socialising with friends, going to the gym and travelling. I also enjoy trekking and I have climbed Mt Kilmanjaro and trekked to Everest base camp. I hope to take Prash along on my next adventure.
