Dentists in Derby, Derbyshire 44 Main Street, Etwall, Derby, Derbyshire DE65 6LP
Ricky obtained his dental qualification from the University of Manchester. During his undergraduate years, Ricky developed a passion for Endodontics and Cosmetic Dentistry. Shortly after his undergraduate studies, Ricky was awarded the Diploma of the Faculty of Dental Surgeons from the Royal College of Surgeons of Edinburgh.
After winning several awards in the field of Endodontics, Ricky completed a 3 year postgraduate masters (MSc) degree, in order to gain the knowledge and skills to treat complex Endodontic cases on referral. Alongside Endodontics, Ricky has also had extensive training in advanced restorative and cosmetic dentistry from the prestigious Tipton Training Academy, Perio Academy, Frank Spear and The Dawson Academy to name a few. As a former dental phobic himself, Ricky can empathise with those who are nervous about seeing the dentist. He has a natural ability to put patients at ease and takes considerable pride in providing his patients with high quality care.
Ricky admits to being a self-confessed foodie and enjoys cooking in his spare time. If he’s not in the kitchen cooking he’ll either be watching cookery shows on TV or visiting different restaurants!
Many of you will be aware that during the latest Covid 19 update dental practices have been given the green light to re-open the surgery from 8th June. Whilst this is good news, there are a number of procedures that we have being putting in place to make treatment safe for our patients and staff, as we are sure you will appreciate, this is taking some time to set up.
Our intention is, if at all possible to commence opening on the 8th June but this is entirely dependent on our ability to obtain training and appropriate PPE which as you know there is a great shortage of. This equipment will be essential for us to be able to operate.
From 8th- 29th of June we will be prioritising the most urgent of cases including those who have been experiencing problems during this lockdown period. We will contact you directly to arrange an appointment. This period may be extended if required.
Rest assured we are trying our utmost to source this PPE as soon as possible to enable us to extend our treatment further to include fillings, crown/bridge work, root treatments and surgical extractions, scale & polish ect.
We anticipate that it will be several weeks before we will be able to commence these more advanced procedures.
This is a rapidly changing environment which we are adapting to as quickly as we possibly can. We really appreciate your patience and understanding throughout this difficult period and look forward to welcoming you back to the practice soon.
