Nilesh provides a wide variety of high quality dental treatments, including CEREC crowns, while maintaining a gentle and caring approach in a relaxed and friendly environment.  Nilesh aims to help patients understand their treatment and how best to prevent dental issues, and works with them to provide the best results possible for each individual.

He is a firm believer in developing his skills and experience through post graduate education.  In 2014 Nilesh completed the MFDS qualification to become a member of the Royal College of Surgeons of Edinburgh.  In 2017 he completed a Post Graduate Certificate in Dental Sedation at the Eastman Dental Institute, University College London (UCL), which not only allows him to provide sedation for nervous patients, but provides further qualification and experience in this field.  In addition to this Nilesh has also been approved as a foundation dentist trainer, alongside Chris, the practice principle.

Nilesh is currently studying part time for a Masters degree in Endodontology (root canal treatments) at the University of Central Lancashire. Over three years, this course will give him the skills and knowledge to become a ‘Dentist with Special Interest’ in the area, with potential to become a registered specialist in the longer term.  This allows us to deal with the most complex cases and treat patients with the highest level of skill, using cutting edge techniques and technology.
