Principal Dentist and Dentist with special interest in Restorative Dentistry, Endodontics and Implants
Vik oversees running of the clinical aspects of the practice and is responsible for maintaining standards of care for all patients.
He also sees patients on referral for more complex forms of dentistry mainly in endodontics (root canal treatment and surgery), Implants and severe tooth wear cases.
Vik Qualified at the ‘end of the last century’ from the University of Wales College of Medicine in Cardiff and then went on to work in several specialist hospital units until he joined the practice on a part time basis in December 2002. He then completed his higher-level training with an MSc from the prestigious Eastman Dental Institute.
Since then he has committed himself full time to the practice and combined seeing some general practice patients alongside his more complex work.
He took over running the practice in December 2010 and proceeded to put his own personal stamp on an already well-established community practice.
Vik is former chairman and current committee member of the local BDA committee responsible for providing postgraduate education for dentists in the Berkshire and Oxfordshire area.
Vik is a member of both the ITI (International team of implantologists) and also the British Society of Endodontology.
On a personal level Vik is married with two young boys who have inherited his love of sport particularly cricket and racket sports.
He is a keen (very) amateur historian particularly monarchic and religious history.
The whole team at wood lane has made me feel so welcome. However my dentist is a genius. My teeth feel better than they have felt in years. His kindness and patience seem unending. I have already made the rest of my family sign up with the practice.
The practice was recommended to me by a relative and though I live some distance away I would travel twice the distance to keep seeing my dentist. He always explains everything he does and makes the whole experience pain free and dare I say even pleasant. He has a lovely team behind him which only adds to my pleasure at being a patient at this practice.
This is one of the best dental practices that I have ever been to. Me and my whole family now use the wood lane practice, and all of us are very pleased with the service that we frequently recieve!
