Dentist Aryaan Khalid welcomes patients in SpaDental Ledbury, Ross on Wye and Tewkesbury. He is dedicated to helping patients achieve their best oral and dental health and especially enjoys restorative work.
We know that quite often people don’t want to visit the dentist. Sometimes it’s because of anxiety or fear, but often it’s because people feel embarrassed about the condition of their teeth, particularly if they feel they’ve been told off by a dentist or hygienist in the past.
As a dentist, Aryaan likes to help all of his patients. Moreover, he finds helping people with painful, damaged teeth and gums particularly rewarding. Be reassured, he won’t judge you, just help you back to better oral health. Aryaan supports his patients, helping them to overcome their initial reluctance to visit the dentist so they can have a comfortable, healthy mouth once again.
“I became interested in dentistry at a young age when I visited the dentist in London for routine check-ups. I enjoyed my interactive sessions with the dental team. My enthusiasm grew so much that I applied for and was accepted on an apprenticeship as a dental assistant.
My initial bachelor’s degree in radiography is very useful – it plays an important role in diagnosing dental and oral concerns. Since I qualified as a dentist from the University of Leeds, I’ve been fortunate to work alongside experienced dentists who have helped me develop clinically and professionally.
During a first appointment I begin with an informal chat to get to know the patient: their past dental history, what’s bothering them, what they would like and what their expectations are. I complete a systematic examination, taking x-rays and photos as needed. Then I draw up a treatment plan in consultation with my patient. It’s always important to discuss all the available options, their pros and cons, the cost and stages of treatment. If the patient decides to proceed with the treatment, I provide a written treatment plan and book all the appointments.
I like restoring oral health and function. It’s very rewarding to improve my patients’ appearance and confidence. I have completed many restorative cases where patients have not been to the dentist for years and have neglected their oral health. For instance, they come to an initial appointment with missing, decayed, painful teeth and gums. I like improving my patients’ overall oral health, not just focusing on one tooth or area. I like saving teeth!
In my spare time I like to keep fit. When I was living in Scotland, I participated in a 10k run. (Editor’s note: actually a “Beast Race” near Loch Ness with steep hills, icy cold water, a lot of mud and 1,800 competitors. Aryaan won the race!) I adopted a stray cat when I was a student in Leeds. He’s called Rudy, and I still look after him.”
A new patient testimonial After the closure of my local dentist in Whitchurch I telephoned Spa Dental who made me an appointment. Unfortunately I had an abscess on my tooth before my appointment date, for which I was given an emergency appointment. I am a very nervous patient and it took a long time to build confidence with my old dentist , therefore my nerves were bad and I was in pain arriving for my appointment. This…More Testimonials
