Dr Pooja Shah qualified from St. Bartholomew’s and the Royal London School of Medicine and Dentistry with Honours in 2009. Whilst training she won many accolades and prizes for her work including being awarded Best Student for Part 1 and 2 exams and the prestigious Human Health and Disease Award. Since graduating, Pooja quickly immersed herself into the world of general practice, working alongside various specialists. She has seen a variety of NHS and private patients ranging from all ages.
Pooja regularly attends dental courses to keep abreast with the latest developments and is committed to continuing postgraduate education in all aspects of dentistry. In 2011 Pooja achieved her Diploma of Membership of the Joint Dental Faculties from the Royal College of Surgeons of England. She also gained her Postgraduate Certificate in Dental Education from the University of Bedfordshire in 2016 to pursue her interest in teaching newly qualified dentists in the future.
Pooja’s passion for conservative and minimally invasive dentistry has enabled her to apply her skills in providing patients with various options for tooth whitening, cosmetic dentistry and short-term orthodontic treatments to help restore function, rebuild confidence and enhance smiles. She is a certified Inman Aligner™ and Quick Straight Teeth® braces provider, which includes clear aligners (invisible braces). Her interest in cosmetic dentistry has continued to develop and in 2018 she will be completing a yearlong course and working towards receiving a certificate in advanced aesthetic and restorative dentistry.
In 2017 Pooja became a Harley Street certified facial aesthetics practitioner. With her gentle touch she is able to offer anti-wrinkle injections, dermal fillers and lip augmentation treatments, which are specifically tailored to suit each individual patients’ requirements.
Pooja’s extensive experience in general practice has developed her into a confident practitioner and her priority is to provide high quality affordable dental care in a calm, comfortable and relaxing environment. She understands that dentistry can feel overwhelming for some, so places the patients concerns at the core of her treatments and practices dentistry with an ethical motivation by taking time to explain to patients all available treatment options. She is a strong believer in preventative dentistry and attempts to instil this in all her patients. She believes that a confident smile speaks a thousand words!
