Presented by: Dr Viraj Patel
Host: Zubair Sacranie
Date: 15 November 2023
Time: 1900 Refreshments 1930 Lecture
Location: Village Hotels Solihull, Dog Kennel Lane, Solihull, B90 4JG


The purpose of this presentation will be to look back historically at guided bone regeneration and to help understand how newer techniques such as the customised alveolar ridge split have evolved from previous augmentation procedures. Another aim is to introduce possible ways in which we can bridge the gap between a notoriously analog treatment modality, in guided bone regeneration and ridge augmentation, and bring them into the current digital dentistry era.


Having qualified as a dentist in 2012, Viraj has set out to gain the necessary experience to help him with his goal of becoming one of the lead Implantologists in the UK for the future.

Viraj undertook hospital training in Maxillofacial and Oral surgery in 2014 and since has attended multiple Dental Implant courses within the UK.  In 2018 his passion for implants led him to New York City in, where he enrolled for 2 years at New York University (NYU), on the renowned Advanced Implant Dentistry Program.

Since moving back to the UK, on completion of the Program, in 2020 Viraj has been working as a dental implantologist in private practices across London.

He was awarded the "ITI Future Star" prize by the International Team of Implantology in 2021 and received an award for "The Best Young Implant dentist in the UK 2022".

He has also become a key opinion leader for some of the leading implant companies within the UK and is now lecturing and presenting internationally.

The majority of cases referred to him are those requiring implants in conjunction with complex ridge augmentation procedures.
