Dr. Patel’s Profile

Expertise Due to Education and Training

In order to become a Prosthodontist, one has to first complete the five and a half year dentistry degree (BChD) and thereafter specialise in a Masters in Prosthodontics (MChD) for a further four years. Both the degrees require completion at an accredited institution.

Keeping Up With The Trends: The field of Prosthodontics continually evolves as missing teeth treatment or solutions are improved by technology. With this, patients can be assured that a Prosthodontist is abreast with the current trends. Dental implants for instance, can be performed using the teeth-in-a-day procedure that replaces traditional procedures that would take a few months.
