vikYour dentist

Dr Vik Shah (GDC Reg.61898)

Hello, I am Vik and the Principal Dentist at Dene Dental Practice. I am responsible for ensuring that you receive the highest level of dental care from the moment you contact us to any issues you may have after your treatment is complete.

We are an exclusive family practice providing high quality dental care on private basis.

I qualified from Kings College London 30 years ago. After a few years working as an associate in different practices I bought my first practice in 1991 in Forest Hill South East London.
I undertook a year long postgraduate training at the World renowned Eastman Dental Hospital in 1994.

I found it increasingly difficult to provide, under the health service, the quality of dental care I was taught at the Eastman. In 1996 I converted my patient base to Private Care with almost 100% acceptance from the loyal patients.

At Dene Dental you will find that the sense of quality and service resonates throughout the practice.

Your Practice Administrator 

Neelima Shah

neelima thb

Neelima joined our practice in Jan 2016 with invaluable experience and skills gained from her previous position as a Senior Leader at a large comprehensive secondary school. She was responsible for transformation of teaching and learning with the aid of new modern digital technologies.

Her role included leading on the development of new systems and working with staff and external organisations to improve the current systems.

With a background of a Master’s degree from Kings College London in telecommunication Engineering, Neelima will be technically assessing and improving the practice dental software as well as other software of patient education and playing a leading role in the overall enhancement of the practice.

Your Receptionist

Tina Willmore

Tina joined the practice in November 1983 from Mount Vernon Hospital from the Radiotherapy Department.  Tina was responsible for getting the out patients clinics ready for Mount Vernon and surrounding hospitals where the consultants would visit.

She brought her organisation skills to Dene Dental Practice initially as a receptionist to the two dentists.  Shortly after she was promoted to Practice manager and handled the complete day to day running of the practice.

Tina has a great knowledge of the existing patients and their families and takes pride in getting to know the patient and their needs.

Tina is currently a Scout Leader working with the Beaver Scout Section and runs a successful Majorette Troupe.

Your Dental Nurse

Lisa Hayward (GDC Reg.109501)

Lisa passed the National Certificate NEBDN in May 1989 at the London Hospital Whitechapel, whilst working full time at a busy NHS/private practice in Ruislip. She was on the ‘National Register of Dental Nurses’ from December 1989, until it merged with the GDC’s ‘Dental Care Professionals Register’ in 2007.

After working in Ruislip for three years, Lisa joined the Premier Dental Agency in Finchley. During this time she worked for various practices in and around London. This included the British Airways Dental Centre at Heathrow.

In 1991, Lisa joined a newly opened private practice in the Chalfonts, and as the sole employee for the first three years, she undertook all the nursing, reception and practice management duties. This also included working one session a week at a North London clinic seeing endodontic referrals.

Lisa joined Dene Dental Practice in 2001. Since then she has been instrumental during the modernising of the practice, especially in relation to cross infection control procedures.

Your Dental Hygienist

Farnoush Motlagh (GDC Reg:165557)

Farnoush graduated as a Dental Hygienist from Denmark in 2008. She is passionate about working with patients who suffer from periodontal disease (advanced gum disease). Her aim is to deliver a pain-free and thorough treatment, to inform and help every patient on their journey for a better oral health, as well as making the visit comfortable for the patients suffering from dental phobia.

Farnoush enjoys her work and is always keen to expand her dental knowledge by participating in different dental courses and conferences.
