Dr Ravi Nathwani BDS (Manc), MJDF RCS Eng

Principal Dentist

GDC No. 150087

Ravi has been the principal dentist at Littleover Dental Practice for the past 5 years after taking over in 2011 and working alongside Don Stazicker and Jane Burton, the previous owners. Don and Jane retired in December 2015 and we wish them the best of luck during their retirement!

In the time that Ravi has owned the practice he has already made improvements. He has installed new digital X-ray technology, obtaining intraoral images in an instant. He has introduced a fully paperless record and recall system, obtained Denplan Excel accreditation, a highly regarded achievement setting the team exacting standards for patient care and clinical governance and has even been nominated for the Young Dentist of the Year. Alongside all of this he has carried out extra training at the prestigious Eastman Dental Institute in London in restorative dentistry to enhance his skillset and has been awarded with a Dental Phobia recognition.

Ravi takes pride in using minimally invasive dentistry, which helps to put nervous patients at ease. He has had a breadth of experience with patients who have a lifelong fear of visiting the dentist who now will only come to visit him, with patients travelling from far across the country, even abroad.

Most recently, Ravi has been appointed Chairman of the Local Dental Committee of Derby City, which keeps him at the forefront of the dental care provision in the area.
