Dr Naveed Sethu
Where did you graduate?
I studied at the University of Birmingham School of Dentistry, where I graduated in 2002.
What have you done since then?
As well as working in private practice, I’ve supervised and taught dental students at the prestigious Kings College London School of Dentistry. I was also a speciality doctor in oral surgery at Kings College, working with top consultants on complex operations. I dealt with quite a bit of dental trauma, people falling off bikes or in car accidents with broken or knocked out front teeth.
I’ve done a one-year restorative course at the prestigious Eastman Dental Institute (that’s studying and managing diseases of the teeth). I’m currently doing a diploma in dental implants .
What do you think is important in a dental practice?
I like to give patients plenty of time and to make them feel comfortable.
Naveed has a calm and friendly manner with everyone. Always with a reassuring smile to make you feel at ease, and he’s especially good with nervous patients. Very gentle when treating patients and likes to make your visit to the dentist a pleasant experience.
In his spare time, he likes running and cycling, and is passionate about cars.

Any other qualifications?
Before I trained as a dentist, I took a BSc. in Human Biology at Kings, and a Masters in Medical Ethics at Imperial College.
Studying anything at the moment?
Yes, since you ask. I’m currently doing a Masters in Medical Law at Cardiff University. It’s something that really interests me.
You like studying, then?
I do enjoy studying and keeping up to date with the latest developments in dentistry. In my spare time i enjoy fashion and shopping ( tell me a girl who doesn’t!?) . I do also love to travel whenever i get the chance, and also love to spend time with friends and family.
Nighat is a good listener , always very patient and empathetic, and happy to answer any questions.
