GDC - 47745 BChD Leeds 1974, MGDS RCS Eng 1988, MSurgDent Eng 2000, FFGDP (UK) 2003, DIMPIMPDENT RCS Eng 2005 Dentist and Specialist in Oral Surgery

A senior dentist and surgeon, Naresh has also worked in hospital settings and has set up a medical charity in India.

After qualifying from the University of Leeds in 1974, Naresh did a short stint in general dental practice before returning to a hospital setting at Leeds General Infirmary, where he focused on oral surgery. In 1977, he took over and developed the dental practice here in Heckmondwike; during this time, he continued to carry out oral surgery, this time at Pinderfields Hospital in Wakefield.

In 1988, Naresh passed the MGDS examination at the Royal College of Surgeons of England. He placed his first dental implant in 1988, and has since developed a real interest in the field, attending many courses in implantology around the world.

Naresh is on the General Dental Council’s specialist list for oral surgery, and in fact he was a member of the committee which developed the national standards for implant dentistry training, later adopted by the GDC. He has several publications to his name, and is co-founder of the Diploma in Implant Dentistry at the Royal College of Surgeons of England; this course has been running in London, Leeds and Hong Kong since the mid-2000s. He has organised and taught on several postgraduate courses in the UK and internationally.

He has served as chairman of the Examinations Committee of the Faculty of General Dental Practice, and remains an implant dentistry and oral surgery examiner for the Royal College of Surgeons of England, nationally and internationally.

Today, Naresh specialises only in implants, including bone grafts and sinus lifts, together with major restorative and aesthetic treatments. Dentists from all over the UK send their patients to him for implant work.

Naresh is also a Fellow and Diplomate of the International Congress of Oral Implantologists and the International Academy for Oral and Facial Rehabilitation.

Naresh is the founder of the Chitrakoot Project, a charity founded in 1998 which provides free primary dental and medical care to 500 villages in India.

Robert MontgomeryDentists

GDC - 82185 BchD Leeds 2003, MFDS RCS Edin 2007 Dentist

Rob is well-qualified in dental implants and root-canal work, and is experienced in using sedation to help anxious patients.

Rob graduated from the University of Leeds in 2003. After his first year in general practice, he spent a year at Leeds General Infirmary as a senior house officer in maxillofacial surgery. He went on to complete his Membership (MFDS) of the Faculty of Dental Surgery of the Royal College of Surgeons of Edinburgh.

He then returned to general practice, where he furthered his postgraduate education by studying restorative dentistry with Mike Wise in London and by completing a certificate in endodontics (the art of the root filling) from the University of Chester.

Rob’s key interest is in the restoration of patients’ mouths, especially where dental implants are required. He has been awarded the Diploma in Implant Dentistry from the Royal College of Surgeons, a course which has been recognised as the gold standard in training by the General Dental Council.

He has many years’ experience in the use of intravenous sedation to help anxious patients relax.

Since 2008, Rob has been involved in foundation training, whereby selected practices and trainers are chosen by the Yorkshire ‘deanery’ to take newly qualified dentists and help them transition to general practice. This rewarding experience has brought some talented young dentists into the Practice.

No, orthodontics for adults is becoming more and more common. We can talk through your options with you.

We do understand that some people really struggle with dental treatment. But we have lots of ways to help put you at ease. Please just tell us how you feel and what worries you, and then we can work together to decide on the right approach.

Generally we recommend twice yearly check-ups every six months. However, this varies on a case by case basis. Your Bupa Dental Care dentist will talk to you about when and how often we need to see you.

Fillings repair small holes in your tooth enamel. If they aren’t filled, the decay will deepen. You’ll start to feel pain, and you could end up needing root canal treatment, which is much more significant and costs more. So although you might not feel pain right now, it’s best to repair these holes as soon as possible.
