Savan is committed to post-graduation education and strives to provide the highest level of dental care to all his patients using the most up-to-date dental techniques. One of the things Savan likes most about dentistry is the interaction with his patients and the fact they offer him the chance to constantly learn new things.

He has a keen interest in oral surgery and has previously completed a hospital Senior House Officer position in Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery at the Luton, QEII and Lister Hospitals (2012-2013).

GDC number – 252178

Graduated from Charles Clifford Dental Hospital at Sheffield University, I take extreme pride in providing high quality preventative and restorative dentistry. I especially enjoy making anxious patient feel at ease and provide the treatment required at your comfort. Aesthetics and longevity are of utmost importance to me in whatever I do. I am a provider of Six Month Smiles (™) and clear aligners providing teeth straightening with tooth coloured brackets or clear trays for quick and predictable results, discreetly. I also provide anti-wrinkle injections to reduce frown lines, forehead lines and “crow’s feet. In my free time I thoroughly enjoy reading non-fiction books, usually about theoretical and astronomical physics. I have been part of a number of sports teams including american football and thai boxing.
