Navida has over 20 years of clinical experience in the UK. She completed her Bachelor in Dental Surgery at The University of Manchester, UK graduating with Honours and has Postgraduate Training in Cosmetic Dentistry and Endodontics. She is also certified in Conscious Sedation and Invisalign. She has completed the MFGDP and MFDS examinations from the Royal College of Surgeons, Edinburgh. She has spent some time in Vancouver, Canada, where she was involved in undertaking research as part of her final year elective.
Navida has a broad base of clinical experience having previously worked in hospital, general practice, and the community dental service. She has a keen interest in Endodontics, Oral Surgery, and Cosmetic Dentistry.
Navida has spent a significant portion of her career working in an independent practice looking after patients on a private basis. This has allowed her to spend the time required to provide dentistry at the highest level using the latest and very best materials and techniques. Patient expectations are vastly increased and so excellent communication and good interpersonal skills are mandatory.
Some of her earlier clinical career was based in community dental service where she was involved with the treatment of patients who are unable to access care in general practice, her duties involved the delivery of dental care to both adults and children with special needs. She gained experienced in anxiety management techniques in particular providing treatment using Conscious Sedation (IV and IHS) and also providing care under General Anaesthetic. Part of her work here also involved Oral Health Promotion and screening of School children.
Working as a Maxillofacial House Officer opened up yet further opportunities, here she assisted with the treatment of Maxillofacial Trauma and Orthognathic Surgery.
Navida is married with three sons, keeping her busy outside of Dentistry! She loves to travel and recently moved to Abu Dhabi from the UK. She is currently learning spoken Arabic language to help connect with and facilitate better communication with her patients and the local community. She enjoys cooking and entertaining friends and family.
She is fluent in English and Urdu and basic Arabic.
