My Story

My patients know me as the principal dentist and resident teeth straightening expert at Ascent Dental Care—a Midlands-based group of clinics I founded alongside my colleague and friend Faresh Desai in 2007.

But my story begins long before then.

I graduated from Guy’s Hospital in London in YEAR and completed training in restorative dentistry with the Royal College of Surgeons.

Ongoing education is my way of ensuring I keep pace with the latest developments in orthodontics so that I can continue offering my patients the highest quality of care, and I’ve been privileged to study with some of the discipline’s true pioneers.

Among these was world-renowned orthodontic specialist Dr Derek Mahoney, with whom I completed a year-long residency programme in self-ligating fixed orthodontic appliances.

Training with Dr Mahoney made such an impact that I later returned to complete his three-year Master’s programme in full-face orthodontics, which has played a vital role in my micro-aesthetics approach to treatment.

Practising at Dr Mahoney’s busy clinic in Sydney, Australia, in 2010 was also formative to my approach to treatment.

I am currently studying to convert Dr Mahoney’s Master’s qualification into an MClinDent in orthodontics and dentofacial orthopaedics with the BPP university in London.

Wide-Ranging Expertise

In addition to studying with Dr Mahoney, I’ve also studied under Dr Ian Hutchinson, who ignited my passion for treating with discreet, fixed lingual braces.

I’ve used the skills I learned from Drs Mahoney and Hutchinson to treat many thousands of patients, and I continue to visit the US regularly for training to stay abreast of the latest developments in the field. I’m also a familiar face at dental study groups throughout the West Midlands.

In addition to orthodontics, my other clinical interest is sedation dentistry—a technique for helping patients undergo treatment. After witnessing sedation at work, I completed a qualification so I could put it to use in my own practice. I’ve since used sedation to help over a thousand patients.

Fixed or Removeable?

Currently having orthodontic treatment with Gursh with clear fixed braces. Very professional service and very satisfied with result already. Also having hygienist appointments and my teeth are in amazing condition now.

Isaac McKenzie reviewed on

I am a very nervous patient with an irrational fear of the dentist, today it felt calming and I felt understood. The options shared I genuinely felt were what will be best for me and I felt cared for.

I chose Ascent Dental Care for my orthodontic treatment. I am generally a nervous patient, each appointment I’ve been made to feel at ease. An astetically pleasing smile is something that always felt unobtainable, after my initial consultation with Gursh I felt informed & confident that the treatment would provide the desired results…

Rach Cham reviewed on

Took my son here for braces. We’re absolutely blown away with how amazing the whole experience has been so far. Every single member of staff are so friendly, welcoming, helpful and kind. The practice is spacious and clean and has onsite parking. Appointments are really fast, no waiting months. They take their time with you and explain everything, no rushing, pressurising or negativity at all. I’d recommend to everyone who needs an amazing dentist/orthodontist.
