Dr Avik Jonathan Dandapat qualified from Birmingham University where he gained his BDS qualification. He went on to working in private practice in Royal Leamington Spa and attained the MFGDP (UK) qualification by exam 2 years after qualifying (at the earliest possible time allowed). After a period of general practice training, he was involved in surgical dentistry in hospitals based in various Maxillo-Facial departments around the UK. Avik also did some sabbatical work in India- working closely with Maxillo-Facial surgeons involved in head and neck surgery and leading the dentofacial reconstructive work after such extensive surgery.

He then embarked on further post graduate training (over a 3 year period) at the Royal College of Surgeons of England relating to Dental Implants. He passed the Diploma in Implantology by exam and an extra achievement was the fact that he was the youngest Dentist in the UK to hold this qualification. He also gained an Advanced Certificate in Implant Dentistry. Avik was a finalist for the 'Best Young Dentist' in the Dentistry Awards 2007.
