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 that I developed my obsession with dentistry and a need to push my abilities and up-skill myself through courses within the Royal College of Surgeons. Currently I am the youngest member to have completed the Diploma in Restorative Dentistry within the Royal College of Surgeons, a course that has allowed me to be guided by some of the UKs leading dentists.
I am currently completing a Masters programme in Advanced Clinical Dentistry at the University of Kent where I will carry on my development.
The reason I am going to such lengths to improve my skills is so that I can fulfil my passion; to provide the most effective, minimally invasive dentistry to improve patients’ well-being. I also have a keen interest in cosmetic and aesthetic dentistry too.
For me, dentistry 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 delivers enormous job satisfaction. I pride myself on high quality dentistry and love what it can do for people – it truly can be life changing for so many people.
As well as being a dental nerd I am also a football geek and an avid Aston Villa supporter … for my sins!
