Vishaal is the Principle Dentist and Clinical Director at Dentality.
Vishaal was born and bred in a small market town in Central Kenya. At a very early age, he developed a keen interest in Dentistry and did a lot of charity work with a team of Oral and Maxillo-facial Surgeons who represented a charity called Operation Smile. This is where his passion for dentistry began.
After completing his “A” Levels, Vishaal came to the United Kingdom in 1998 to pursue a degree in Dentistry at what was then St. Bartholomew’s and The Royal London School of Medicine and Dentistry (now Queen Mary’s University). He qualified in 2003 and worked in a practice in Clacton on Sea for the following 7 years where he built up his experience and an impressive following of over 8000 patients! His extensive list was almost entirely built on recommendations based on his knowledge and chair side manner where he consistently shared his passion for dentistry with his patients and focused his energy towards patient centred care.
In December 2010, Vishaal took over Hogges Hall Dental Practice in Hoddesdon and began building his dream; He called it “Dentality!”
His practice to date consists of the all aspects of General Dentistry, and has a very keen interest in Smile Makeovers, Cad-Cam Dentistry using CEREC Technology, Sedation, Implant Dentistry and Orthodontics. He is also Dental Phobia Certified in the treatment of nervous patients.
He is keen to develop his skills and in the last two years has undertaken further training in Implant dentistry, Restorative Dentistry, Orthodontics and Sedation. He was one of the first of approximately 50 Dentists in the United Kingdom to introduce FASTBRACES Technology to his skill set.
He is member of the British Dental Association, Society of Advancement of Anaesthesia in Dentistry, a Certified practitioner for CEREC 3D computer designed restorations, Association of Dental Implantologists, British Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry, American dental Association, a Fellow of Pierre Fauchard Academy of Dental Honours and a Fellow of the Academy of Dentistry International.
Vishaal is dedicated to providing quality care with attention to detail and confesses to being a perfectionist within his work place. As a result of his infectious personality, passion for dentistry and his commitment to providing a quality service, he is not only an invaluable asset to the practice but to all his patients too.
