B.D.S., D.D.S. (Ohio), M.S. (Ohio)
Jiten grew up and was educated in London. He graduated from UCL Dental School, London, in 1989. From 1992 – 1995, following a path of specialization in Prosthodontics – the replacement and cosmetic correction of non-ideal and missing teeth – he attended The Ohio State University in Columbus, Ohio, USA, where he obtained his US Specialty Certificate in Prosthodontics and Master’s Degree. He was also selected for a one-year Fellowship in Implant Dentistry as part of several research studies being undertaken at the University on dental implants, and obtained his Doctor of Dental Surgery qualification to practice in the USA.
Wanting to pursue his specialty interests in private dental practice, Jiten stayed in the US and took over a practice in Orlando, FL. Within a few short years he built a successful practice based on referrals from other general dentists and dental specialists becoming a resource to his colleagues in the area. Wanting to build on this success, some years later, he was given an opportunity to join and expand a group practice in nearby Clearwater on the west coast of Florida with some of the best beaches in the USA.
Understanding the needs of patients, and his dental colleagues, Jiten brought about an expansion of dental services to the group practice while maintaining the ethos of providing the best quality and value of dental care in as warm, comfortable and friendly an atmosphere as is possible in a dental practice. He prides himself on his ability to communicate with his patients so that their needs and wants are fulfilled while utilising his knowledge and experience to bring about the best possible dental result.
In 2012, as London was hosting the Olympics, he and his wife brought their two sons, born and raised in the USA, to enjoy the spectacle, spend time with family and take a trip to mainland Europe. His love for London, the place he grew up and where his wife was born, was rekindled and, interestingly enough, their two sons loved the experience so much they wanted to live in this great city. They all said “farewell” to the USA and moved to London the following year.
Having been in private dental practice in the USA and having a special interest in Prosthodontics, for over 23 years, Jiten brings a wealth of dental knowledge and experience to ProDental. Along with spending time with his family, in his spare time, he tries to stay fit and healthy, is a keen badminton player and golfer, both of which could benefit from more practice! As a keen photographer, he likes to travel places where he can capture images that inspire and create awe in its beholders. More practice wouldn’t hurt that as well!
