Akhil graduated from Barts & The London, Queen Mary University of London in 2010. After completing his training in Northampton, and enjoying several years helping patients smile more confidently, he set up Eyes & Smiles Dental Practice in Friern Barnet with his brother, Preemal Haria.
Akhil has a keen interest in adult orthodontics and tooth straightening, and has plenty of experience in both traditional fixed braces, as well as newer clear braces.
He is a certified provider of fixed and removable braces as well as completing a 2 Year advanced braces course to allow him to treat more complex orthodontic cases and achieve confident smiles!
He loves to help restore confidence in patients who want to improve their smile in newer techniques which involve minimal intervention. Some ways to do this are to straighten teeth to avoid unnecessary drilling of teeth, as well as composite bonding where tooth surfaces are restored, to improve the appearance and function of the teeth. As a Digital Smile Dentistry certified dentist, he is able to design and preview your new smile before you go ahead with any treatment, to ensure you will be happy with your end result.
To aid in this he has recently introduced SmileFast technique which is a minimally invasive way of improving the appearance of worn or misshapen teeth by composite bonding. He enjoys coupling this with teeth whitening and tooth-alignment to give patients a safe and proven approach to cosmetic dentistry.
In his spare time, he enjoys volunteering, travelling, discovering the city, and actively follows Arsenal football club. After getting married last year, Akhil is now based back in London and has found a new liking to DIY and gardening in his new home!
