I’m Dr Simon Rana and I have been a full time practising dentist since I graduated from the University of Manchester in 2015.
Since graduating I have been fortunate enough to work in two busy, well-established NHS practices. It is from these positions where I developed almost an obsession with dentistry! This led to pushing my skills as a dentist and up-skilling myself through courses within the Royal College of Surgeons. Currently I am one of the youngest members associated with the Diploma in Restorative Dentistry within the Royal College of Surgeons.
Here I am being guided by some of the UKs leading dentists. I am also lucky enough to be part of the Post Graduate Certificate programme in Aesthetic Dentistry through the Tipton Training academy.
My passion within dentistry is to provide the most effective, minimal invasive dentistry to improve patients’ well-being. Dentistry for myself is not only about fixing teeth, I love nothing more than to see the happy expressions on my patient’s faces when I show them their new smile, or I have made that pain disappear for them. Improving a person’s self-confidence, giving them the feel-good factor and helping people when they are in need is a job satisfaction that I am lucky enough to experience. I pride myself on good dentistry and love what it can do for people and how it can be life changing for so many people.
As well as being a dental geek I am also a football geek and an avid Aston Villa supporter, for my sins!
