Meet The Team
Dr Amit Majevadia BDS (BIRM) – GDC No. 83481
Dr Amit took over the Prestwood Dental Health Centre in April 2008, the core principles that Amit works by are prevention and a well motivated patient.
In dentistry prevention and hygiene are paramount, Amit has a keen interest in periodontal treatment and works closely with his hygienist to ensure patients have a good foundation for any other treatment to succeed.
Secondly it is very important to have a well motivated patient, who enjoys (yes enjoys!) coming to the dentist.
In order to help patients with their motivation, Amit focuses on the patient as a whole and will discuss diet, nutrition, exercise as well as the aesthetic components of dentistry. Amit is always happy to spend time with nervous or phobic patients. Often patients just need time to become familiar with the surroundings, the equipment and with the team themselves.
Amit is a strong believer in keeping up to date with the latest developments in the dental profession. He is committed to continuously learning and developing his skills. He has a particular interest in facial rejuvenation and offers wrinkle relaxing treatments and fillers to combat the signs of tired and ageing skin.
When he is not fixing teeth or relaxing wrinkles Amit tries to find the time to keep fit, whether it’s the three peaks challenge, the wolf run or just going to the gym he’s never one to shy away from a challenge!
