Associate private dentist BDS (Birm) GDC no. 192609
Krina qualified from Birmingham University in 2010 and has spent her subsequent years working both in hospital and in general practice.
Krina always aims to listen to her patients in a calm and friendly manner, approaching their needs in a way which involves improving their dental health and appearance in a minimally invasive way. Having worked alongside paediatric specialists she enjoys treating children and anxious patients to make them feel at ease.
Krina strives to keep up to date with all the ongoing developments in dentistry to provide modern and relevant treatments for her patients. Since qualifying she went on to complete The Diploma of Membership of the Joint Dental Faculties at the Royal College of Surgeons.
Krina has a passion for dentistry and has undergone further training with the Aspire Dental Academy in Restorative Dentistry and Advanced Endodontics (root canal treatments). She hugely enjoys improving smiles using clear braces to straighten teeth.
Krina believes there is nothing more satisfying than giving someone back the confidence they may lack through the loss of their teeth and her particular interest lies within implant Dentistry. She trained for this with the International Team for Implantology.
Outside of dentistry Krina loves travelling, exercising, socialising with friends and is a big “foodie” and loves trying different cuisines.
What our patients say:
“I have recently finished treatment for dental implant work with Dr. Krina Patel at Caterham Dental Care. I would highly recommend Krina who is highly professional and really caring. Every stage was explained fully, and the work was carried out in a calm and meticulous manner. Krina was well supported by her colleagues, who were very reassuring and also did all they could to make the treatments as easy for me as possible. I am extremely pleased with the finished results and would not hesitate to undergo such treatment with Krina and her team in the future. Many thanks to you all for providing such an excellent service.” – Nov 2018
“I wanted to let you know how delighted and thrilled I am by my implants. Dr Krina Patel and Dr Shah are obviously perfectionists and took every care to make sure I was happy and comfortable throughout the procedure. Krina you made sure to be available to me if I had any concerns or problems , this is the sort of service I feel would be lacking if travelling abroad for treatment .The eventual outcome was well worth the wait , the idea of implants in a day as some advertise seems to me a little disingenuous. The end results are so natural no one could tell which are my teeth and which are the implants.I can chew properly again and smile as wide as I like without putting my hand in front of my mouth. I am very, very happy and may well be back to you for another implant” – Nov 2018
