Viraj graduated from Cardiff university in 2012 with his honours degree. Since then he has undertaking his foundation training year in practice he went on to work in hospital as a senior house officer in Oral & Maxillofacial Surgery. The exposure he received in hospital has lead to his special interest in Oral Surgery; including the removal of wisdom teeth.
Since the completion of his foundation training Viraj has been actively seeking to improve his skill set including the provision of adult orthodontic braces, to straighten teeth. As well as this he is a certified provider of the Renamel Mini Smile Makeover system, which is a drill free, cost effective method of improving teeth shape and appearance.
The field in which Viraj has made the most progress is Dental Implants. Having placed his first implant over three years ago he has gone on to write an article for a leading Implant Journal as well as lecturing to Foundation Dentists within the UK Dental training system on Implantology. He is currently preparing for his Diploma in Implant Dentistry through the RCS Edinburgh. Once this is complete he plans to undertake more advanced training so that he can provide the revolutionary All-on-four procedure, which will drastically change the lives of those patients wearing complete dentures.
Viraj’s caring and gentle nature, as described by colleagues and patients, makes him not only easy to get a long with but also very good at putting your mind at ease. Continually facing your fears is the quickest and surest was of overcoming them, and it is this philosophy that has helped him conquer many patients fears of the dentist.
