Dentists

Roshanali Panju

BDS MFDS RCPS (Glasg)

BDS MFDS RCPS (Glasg)

GDC No. 227495

Associate Dentist

Works Wednesday, Friday and Alternate Saturdays by appointment only

Rosh qualified from Liverpool University Dental School in 2012. Following this he spent a lot of time training in various hospital specialties including the Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery rotations. During this time, he also passed the prestigious Royal College Exams and gained membership to the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Glasgow. He still does this 1-2 weekends a month as he has a passion for oral and facial surgery. This training gave him a great foundation for dental implants and for injecting anywhere in the face and neck, a much-needed skill in the administration of Botox and Dermal Fillers.

He also practices dentistry regularly at two dental clinics and is a visiting implantologist for three other dental practices. He enjoys all aspects of dentistry and therefore keeps his week quite varied. Hersham Dental Practice keeps abreast with new technology, and with the addition of the 3D Scanner, Rosh now does more teeth straightening cases with Invisalign and has had great results.

​Rosh grew up on the island of Mombasa in Kenya and moved to Liverpool when he was 18. He is a keen hiker and did a few major peaks in Kenya including Mount Kilimanjaro. Before moving to Surrey, he lived in Pembrokeshire where he has hiked along the entire Coastal Path (the longest in the UK). In his spare time, he is a keen badminton player. He has joined a few of the local leagues and plays at least twice a week. He also enjoys an intense game of squash.
