GDC No. 74575
Darsh has reached the level of Orthodontic Specialist (GDC Registered) through years of study and experience and can transform the most crooked of smiles with the newest and best modern braces.
Darsh graduated from the Turner Dental Hospital in Manchester in 1998 and then continued his Vocational Training in London, taking up posts in Dental Public Health, Pediatric Dentistry and Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery.
After gaining both experience and expertise from his numerous posts, Darsh enhanced his orthodontic training and attended Birmingham Dental Hospital in 2002 to study specialist orthodontics. In 2002, Dr Patel produced a dissertation about "Orthognathic Surgery" and obtained a Masters Degree from BDH. After the completion of his training in 2005, Darsh received Membership in Orthodontics from the Royal College of Surgeons, England and he is also a Member of the Faculty of Dental Surgery from the Royal College of Surgeons and Physicians, Glasgow. He achieved an award to recognise the excellent standard of his clinical cases in the exams at the Royal College. His name can be seen on the General Dental Council's Specialist list as a result.
Since then, Dr Patel has gained certification for an extraordinary display of orthodontic systems and appliances. Darsh is enthused by the positive changes modern brace systems have brought to orthodontic treatment. He is especially happy about the higher levels of comfort and discretion now available for patients and is involved in 'Face Driven Orthodontics,' which allows for a reduction in tooth removal for orthodontic procedures as well as ultimate aesthetics.
After actively promoting and using modern brace systems, Darsh now lectures upon these orthodontic techniques locally, nationally and internationally. Dr Patel's vast amount of expertise enables him to treat a huge range of the most challenging orthodontic cases, and he even provides surgical consultations.
