Risha is a Specialist in Endodontics, recognised by the General Dental Council.
She qualified from the Guy’s, Kings and St Thomas’ Dental Institute in 2012, completing her foundation training year in South East London. Following this she took the opportunity to work within a hospital environment, broadening her experience in the fields of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery and orthodontics. Alongside these appointments, she also completed her examinations to attain her Membership of the Joint Dental Faculties (MJDF) of the Royal College of Surgeons (England).
Upon returning to General Dental Practice, she was accepted onto the specialist training programme in Endodontics at King’s College London, where she qualified with distinction, completing research focused on the use of specialised imaging techniques and software in the management of endodontic problems.
Risha currently provides endodontic treatment (non-surgical and surgical) of complex cases on a referral basis. The complexity of these treatments suits her meticulous nature and eye for attention to detail. She strives to provide consistent, high-quality endodontic treatment in a pain-free and comfortable environment and believes all patients should be involved in their own decision-making process. One of her strengths lies in the treatment of anxious patients, providing a variety of options to help patients manage treatment.
The remainder of her clinical time is spent teaching on the undergraduate and postgraduate endodontic programmes at King’s College London. Her other active roles within the profession include Director of the South East and South West Division of the Faculty of General Dental Practice (FGDP) and British Dental Association Committee Member alongside publishing and presenting work nationally and internationally.
Outside of dentistry, Risha is a keen dancer, performing, competing and training in many disciplines from a young age. She is currently exploring the world of photography and enjoys using these newly developed skills when travelling.
