I grew up in East London where I studied for a degree in Biology before embarking on a dental career. I began my career in dentistry as a Dental Nurse at the Eastman Dental Hospital. Once qualified I studied Dental Radiography alongside dental nursing which inspired me to pursue my career as a Dental Therapist.
I completed my training at Eastman Dental Hospital.
Since graduating I have worked in private practices across London and I have a particular interest in Periodontal Therapy (gum disease treatment) and Paediatric Dentistry.
What is a Dental Therapist?
This is a question I encounter every day and it is vital that my patients understand my role in a Dental Practice and my scope of practice.
A Dental Therapist is a fully qualified Dental Hygienist as well as carrying out restorative work for patients such as fillings, and paediatric care for children including crowns, fillings, sealants, and extractions.
So you're a Dentist?
No. Dentists go through an additional 2 years of training which allows them to carry out treatments such as crowns, dentures, adult extractions and root canals.
Why will I need to see you instead of a Dentist?
It's a similar situation when you go see your GP who may refer you on to a Cardiologist, Physiotherapist or Neurologist. In Dentistry we all have different interests and experience in particular fields, I am happy to refer you on to any members of my team that will treat you for your needs if it is outside of my scope.
Non-Surgical Periodontal Therapy
Patient diagnosis, and appropriate treatment options with supportive care.
"Very happy with my teeth whitening results, my dental therapist Ibrahim was very helpful and provided an amazing service. Thank you"
"Without a doubt one of the best dental practices in London. Dr Sarveen and her team are fantastic on every level. Friendly, professional and attentive. From the moment you walk through the door the customer service is second to none and the treatment and aftercare provided by the well qualified practitioners is everything you'd want. Dental Therapist Ibrahim is particularly impressive and I could not recommend him more highly if you're in need of a filling, looking for an expert clean or considering whitening. Whatever your dental requirements you really couldn't be in better hands than the Fulham Dentist."
"Just had an excellent first hygiene session with Ibrahim. I took advantage of an Airflow Polish special offer which completely removed the staining I’d acquired since my last visit to a dentist. I was met by friendly and knowledgable staff, both on the phone and in person."
