Speaker: Deepak Simkhada

Deepak qualified from the University of Dundee (2007) with a BSc in Oral Health and MSc in Advanced Periodontal Practice from the University of Essex (2018). Later, he completed Post Graduate Certificate in Education (PGCE) from the University of Greenwich. He has a special interest in managing advanced periodontal problems in primary care settings through non-surgical periodontal treatments.

Treating and managing periodontal patients in General Dental Practice has its own unique challenges. Deepak understands this from his experience working from dental hospital to corporate and independent (both National Health Service and private) practices. He incorporates this into his teaching methods and explains how to manage patients better and yield successful outcomes using a non-surgical approach. Deepak’s lectures are comprehensive, hands-on, evidence-based, and he ensures he creates an open-style, fun and interactive learning environment for his delegates.

He frequently writes for dental journals and lectures at dental events on these topics internationally. Annually he organises a volunteering trip to Nepal (Oral Care for Developing Countries) to promote oral and general health and provide pain relief and general dental treatments.

Currently, Deepak practices as a dental therapist two days per week in General Dental Practice and runs courses on various aspects of periodontology internationally.
