Rajan Sethi (Principal Dentist)

B.D.S (Lond), MFDS RCPS (Glas),CertImplant (Warwick)

GDC No. 101116

I graduated from Guys, Kings and St Thomas's Dental Hospital in 2005, after which I completed my vocational training in Brighton. I was fortunate enough to become a Senior House Officer in Oral Maxillofacial Surgery and subsequently Restorative Dentistry in Cardiff. During these years in the Hospital Service I completed my post graduate examinations and became a Member of the Royal College of Surgeons and Physicians.

I am a Vocational Trainer with the Kent, Surrey and Sussex Deanery and I am responsible for training newly qualified dentists.

I am the proud owner of Shoreham Smile Studio, Shoreham Dental Centre, Quality Dental Care Worthing and Quality Dental Care Fulham.

Over the last 10 years, I have done numerous post graduate courses. I am a provider of Invisalign Orthodontics, Fast Braces, Six Months Smile & The Inman Aligner. I have completed a course in advanced cosmetic & aesthetic dentistry and became a provider of sedation too.

At present I am also doing my masters in Implant Dentistry. As part of this training, I work at Harley Street.

I thoroughly enjoy my dentistry and my interests are in cosmetic dentistry, adult orthodontics, dental implants and the treatment of nervous patients.
