The provision of oral surgery treatment options in our area is very limited by both time and available resources. Traditionally, as with most dental practices, the only available option was to refer patients to the Bristol Dental Hospital. The consequent demand on their services has resulted in lengthy waiting lists and means patients have to undertake a journey of some distance.
In order to address these problems we have secured the services of specialist oral and Maxillo-Facial surgeons. Our team of surgical experts comprise:
- Mr Jagtar Dhanda MBBS, BDS, BSc (Hons), MFDS RCS (Eng), MRCS (Eng)
- Dr Sankar Ananth BDS, DFO (U. Herts), MFDS, RCS (Eng), MBBCh (Wales)
- Dr Sajina K. Chandran BDS, FDSRCS (London)
All of our surgeons benefit from many years of experience within the hospital environment. Mr Dhanda has full membership to the Royal College of Surgeons, and is one half of our resident Dental Implant team, providing our patients with treatment options that are usually unavailable within a dental practice.
Oral surgery has regrettable connotations for many patients that are often based on other people’s experiences. Modern techniques and materials help to ensure that treatment is pain-free and postoperative complications are reduced.
