Aatif graduated from Barts and the London School of Dentistry in 2012. Following a year of foundation training in the Berkshire deanery, he went on to complete a year working as a Senior House Officer in Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery at Southampton General Hospital. Here he developed his skills in Oral Surgery, as well as gaining valuable insight and experience in the management of head and neck oncology, trauma and orthognathic surgery.
Having worked in general dental practice since 2014, Aatif developed a keen interest in Endodontics. In 2019 he completed an MSc in Endodontics at the renowned Eastman Dental Institute. However, he maintains a strong interest in all areas of general dentistry and is particularly adept at managing nervous patients.
