Dr. Rajiv Bhuva

Principal dentist

BDS (Lond) MJDF RCS (Eng)
GDC No 100006

Thank you for visiting our website!
We look forward to welcoming you to Citident!

I have been Practicing dentistry for 14 years now and still find the most satisfying aspect the change you can make to a person’s life.

I have truly found Invisalign (clear cosmetic braces) has had the biggest impact on my practicing career and my patients.
Without the need to drill down healthy teeth to place crowns or veneers you can transform a smile – the impact this can have is outstanding.

I love to practice minimally invasive dentistry focusing on Invisalign (cosmetic braces), whitening and cosmetic bonding.
You can transform a person’s like safely with no injections and no pain!!!!!
As a result:

  • I have continued to develop my skills in Invisalign and am currently only one of 30 or so general practitioners in England training with the highest possible qualification in Invisalign as a general dental practitioner
  • Invested in incredible 3D technology to digitally scan your smile!
  • Smileview technology

Out of work, I enjoy spending time with my wife and our two kids who are 6 and 3. They definitely keep us busy but at the same time provide so much fun! It’s great to let your hair down ( metaphorically speaking for me) and act like a big kid sometimes!

After graduating in Chennai, India, I worked in a Dental hospital which gave me an opportunity to work alongside well regarded Consultants in a specialist setting gaining a wealth of experience in Oral Surgery and Restorative dentistry.

I aim to provide a high standard of dental care in a relaxed and friendly atmosphere and take utmost care of the nervous and anxious patients.

I keep in touch with the latest developments by attending courses on all aspects of dentistry. I have a keen interest in cosmetic and restorative dentistry.

I believe in practicing dentistry with a gentle, artistic touch. I am married with two children, who keep me fully occupied at home. In the little time left, I love to dabble with a bit of gardening, art and cooking, especially the spicy and flavoursome variety!
