A dentist from South Woodham Ferrers has just been made a Fellow of the Faculty of General Dental Practice (UK)
A dentist from South Woodham Ferrers has just been made a Fellow of the Faculty of General Dental Practice (UK) at the Royal College of Surgeons of England. Tushar Patel of the Brickfields Dental Care practice is one of just 73 dentists in the UK to have become a Fellow by Examination.
Fellowship recognises a practitioner’s commitment to their postgraduate professional development, and therefore to providing the highest possible standard of patient care. In order to become a Fellow dentists follow a structured Career Pathway, developing both their clinical and management skills. The culmination of the Career Pathway is a Fellowship Assessment which examines the dentist through a combination of workplace visits and written evidence.
Dean of the Faculty of General Dental Practice (UK) Russ Ladwa said: “We are pleased to welcome Tushar Patel as a Fellow. His commitment to his patients, and his skills as a dentist make this Fellowship a fitting reward. ”
Mr Patel said “I am delighted to achieve this tremendous accolade- it is a product of many years of bettering myself and my dental team to provide our patients the highest standard of dental care possible. I have a fantastic team here at Brickfields Dental Care and without them, this achievement would not have been possible”.
