Having graduated in 1988 from Guys Hospital Dental School in London, Yasmin has now been in general dental practice in Surrey for over 32 years.
In that time, she has accumulated a wealth of experience in treating patients of all ages with a wide range of needs. This expertise, together with her commitment to continuous learning throughout her career, puts Yasmin in a unique position to help patients who require anything from routine care to more complex restorative rehabilitation or smile makeovers.
Yasmin has a Special Interest in Orthodontics, and has trained extensively and internationally to a Masters standard in orthodontics. For children she firmly believes in the need to be assessed and where appropriate, treat early, also taking into consideration the development of the whole face, airway, and sleep.
Yasmin has developed a reputation for successfully treating many dental phobic patients. She truly understands those who are anxious about visiting the dentist. Her thirteen-year accreditation with www.dentalphobia.co.uk is testament to this. She can offer the latest sedation techniques helping patients to conquer their fears, and benefit from what modern dentistry has to offer.
Yasmin believes in 'relationship based' dentistry. This means taking the time to get to know her patients so she can best advise, help and treat them. She believes that her patients should make informed choices about their treatment, so she provides as much information as possible and always tries to be both honest and realistic.
Yasmin now works part time in two locations, treating patients referred to her by local colleagues and her existing happy patients.
“Giving back,” and helping educate younger dental professionals as they develop their skills, is now an important part of Yasmin’s professional life.
She currently teaches at the Pankey Institute in Florida USA, she has taught at King's College Faculty of Dentistry, sat on the Panel of Examiners for the Certificate in Dental Sedation for Nurses and has been involved in the development of education in orthodontics for general dentists. working with internationally recognised orthodontic specialist Dr Derek Mahony, and City of London Dental School.
Yasmin has chosen not to be a UK registered specialist in orthodontics. The UK orthodontic training pathway and style of treatment has not been her preference. Yasmin favours making interceptions where appropriate, to encourage correct alignment of the teeth and jaws. In this respect it is Yasmin's view that we have a lot to learn from our international colleagues in the field of orthodontics, especially in the USA and Europe where such treatments are very popular.
