Dr Rahim Jetha, Principal
Qualifications :
BDS (Lond)
Diploma in Restorative Dentistry (RCS)
GDC Registration No. : 83697

Continuing Professional Development:

In addition to my university degree from Kings College, London, I also studied for 2 years to obtain a postgraduate qualification in advanced restorative dentistry which was awarded by the Faculty of General Dental Practitioners. After qualifying, I developed my skills further in cosmetic dentistry learning from a well respected expert in this field in the UK. The London Deanery have also approved me to mentor newly qualified dentists.

What I like about DHC:

I like the fact that our whole practice ethic is based on putting the patient first. We pride ourselves on our patient care. We work as a team and we do everything we can to take the "ouch" out of your visit, and help you enjoy a lifetime of good oral health - and your best possible smile.

My working day starts by being greeted with a cheerful "good morning" by one of the reception team, followed in quick order by a friendly "hello" from those members of the team who have arrived before me.

DHC offers a very wide range of treatment options to help our patients to keep good oral health, and our patients come from all ages and backgrounds. I find it satisfying to be able to spend quality time looking after the different needs of our patients.

I graduated from the Guy's, King's & St Thomas' Dental Institute, King's College London.

My Ethos in Practicing Dentistry:

I truly believe a dentist should treat his patients like they were one of his family members, doing the required treatment that is necessary for the patient's dental and general well-being.

I want my patients to be informed of the different treatment options that are available to them and what this treatment involves so they can make an informed decision as to which treatment is best for them and their circumstances.

What I like about DHC:

This is a friendly family-based practice. I really feel that the Dental Hygiene Centre share my view of treating patients with their best interests at heart. As a Registered Specialist in Prosthodontics, it is important to have the very highest standards.
