“I grew up in East Africa and had a very multinational upbringing. Outside of dentistry I have a relentless passion for life, and an endless list of interests which includes: Art, dance, nature, photography, travel, food, people, architecture, mindfulness, fitness, golf, adrenaline and water sports, and ancient civilisations. I feel dentistry is a delicate combination of art, science, and communication. I believe in building partnerships with my patients by breaking down their anxieties, making bonds and building trust, so together we can create the perfect result. The biggest achievement for me, is when this result becomes life changing for a patient, by making them more confident about their smile and themselves. I love my job, thanks to our unbelievable team and brilliant patients. I’d love for you to come and see me or a member of my team, and hopefully you will experience something new. I really look forward to meeting you.” Dr Sarika Shah
