Raja pursued his dental qualification at Peninsula Dental School which is based in Devon and Cornwall. This enabled Raja to provide treatment across a wide variety of patients and allowed him to cement his dental career (as well as enjoy the beautiful scenery!).

Being born and bred in Peterborough, Raja returned home following the completion of his degree to work in dental practices in and around the local area. Raja has also previously worked for the Community Dental Service providing urgent care which has allowed him to become experienced in dealing with patients with extreme pain and anxiety. He has also completed a period of training in some Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery at Addenbrooke’s Hospital where he was involved in the care of patients with head and neck cancer, facial trauma, cleft lip and palate.

A firm believer in prevention and minimally invasive dentistry

Raja is a firm believer in prevention and minimally invasive dentistry and actively pursues this approach with all his patients to enable a sense of shared responsibility of their oral health.

Raja is progressive and has completed further examinations leading to becoming a member of the Royal College of Surgeons Edinburgh and he likes to keep up to date with all areas of general dentistry. He regularly attends courses nationally as well as through online platforms and is actively looking to pursue further interests within those fields.

Outside of work, Raja loves to socialise with family and friends. He is an avid football fan and tries to watch Liverpool FC as much as he can, with him trying to recreate and emulate those same skills when he plays 5-a-side football.
