Shivam graduated from Bristol University in 2015 with a Distinction. Upon graduating, he was also awarded the Pitt-Ford Endodontic prize for a root canal treatment case-based presentation. In 2016, he went on to complete his Foundation year in Peterborough winning the award for “Best Case Presentation” out of his peers. He has since developed a keen interest in teeth straightening and smile makeovers with composite bonding, veneers and Invisalign. He has attended multiple postgraduate courses including the one year Cosmetic and Aesthetic Dentistry programme by the world-renowned Dr Chris Orr.

Shivam has been recently nominated for the prestigious Aesthetic Dentistry Awards 2019 for the best composite smile makeover. He takes great pleasure in teaching and currently lectures for postgraduate dentists within the East of England deanery on composite bonding and has held focused study groups on how to excel in dental photography. Shivam enjoys minimally invasive and ethical cosmetic dentistry offering his patients the best possible results with minimal drilling or injections.
