Dr Purav Patel

Principal Dentist, GDC Registration Number: 216033

Purav qualified as a dentist at Charles University in Czech Republic in 2011. He completed his first job as a vocational trainee in Chichester, West Sussex and in that year he completed a Post Graduate Certificate in Primary Dental Care with the University of Kent with a merit. He went on to work in general dental services in Bognor Regis for a few years before becoming principal dentist at Kenley Dental Practice in December 2015 taking over from Dr Homa Rezaie.

Purav has always been focused on prevention in dentistry first rather than treatment to minimise treatment needs of his patients ever since at University. He has also got a keen interest in advanced restorative and cosmetic dentistry and as a result completed the advanced restorative and cosmetic certification course held by renowned dentist Dr Christopher Orr in London to improve his clinical skills further and be able to complete smile makeovers with greater satisfaction from patients.

Purav is highly approachable and highly empathetic especially towards nervous patients. He always explains all treatment modalities to patients in simple terms and makes sure patients are educated fully before starting treatment. Purav aims to provide his patients with the highest possible quality of treatment and care.

In his spare time Purav enjoys spending time with family and friends, eating out to satisfy his passion for food and is a keen golfer.

Purav regularly attends courses and lectures to enhance his clinical skills so that he can offer a more extensive set of treatments to his patients and even if he can’t and has to refer them to a specialist for certain treatments he has good knowledge of these treatments to give the patient a good understanding of any treatment to be done on referral prior to referring them.
