Dr Nikul Patel

Associate Dentist

GDC NO.264952

(Dental Surgery MChD/BChD, Oral Science BSc – Distinction, University of Leeds, MFDS RCS (Edin), Restorative Dental Practice MSc – Distinction, Eastman Dental Institute)

Hello, my name is Nik!

I earned my degree with integrated master’s from the University of Leeds in 2016 and successfully received a Distinction. Following my graduation, I began my professional career at Alton Dental to pursue my Foundational Training. During this time, I attained two prestigious awards; the ‘Wessex VT Shield’ and ‘Best Case Presentation’ from the Wessex Deanery to recognise my dental accolades and achievements.

Thereafter, in 2017, I undertook a year of further training in Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery as a Senior House Officer at the Queen Alexandra Hospital in Portsmouth. This experience allowed me to develop and further enhance my skills in oral surgery, dental implants and treating patients with complex medical and dental needs. In addition, I attained a Diploma of Membership of the Faculty of Dental Surgery by the Royal College of Surgeons.

In 2019 I was successfully accepted by the prestigious Eastman Dental Institute, University College London, to embark on a 3-year course to complete an additional Master’s Degree in Restorative Dentistry. Here, I received extensive and advance training in dealing with challenging dental cases. In December 2022, I finalised the course receiving a Distinction grade and post-graduate prize in Academic Excellence with placement on the Dean’s List.

With my strong belief in lifelong learning, I took part in a ‘Master Program’ during the summer of 2023, in Italy, learning from a team that consisted of some of the best dentists in the world. The course compounded my knowledge and skills in treating patients that require aesthetic and functional rehabilitations. 

I am truly passionate about Dentistry and believe everyone deserves a healthy, happy, and confident smile. I take a personal approach to my work, creating customised and tailored plans for each individual patient, catering to your unique needs and goals.

Outside of Dentistry, I enjoy playing and watching football, reading books and spending quality time with my friends and family.
