Mahesh Patel is the Principal Dentist at Hillton Dentistry in Kent. His group of practices have been providing committed and quality dental care in Kent for the past 33 years.
Mahesh has been involved in providing orthodontic treatment for his patients since 2000, when he successfully completed the Extended Orthodontic Scheme for General Dental Practitioners (1998 – 2000 Thames Postgraduate Medical and Dental Education). He subsequently completed a 2 year part-time attachment with the Orthodontic Department at the Kent and Canterbury Hospital, Canterbury, Kent. Mahesh has in 2019 completed the Diploma in Aligner treatment and he has also been providing Invisalign Orthodontic treatments at his practice since 2004 and has successfully completed several cases. His patients have benefitted from the fact that any restorative or cosmetic procedures that are required in conjunction with the orthodontic treatment, are provided by him.
The complementary consultation gives Mahesh Patel and his team an opportunity to listen to the patient’s concerns in detail, assure patients that they are able to make an informed choice as to which type of appliance they prefer to correct their individual orthodontic problem. Alternative treatments and appliances are carefully considered and guidance is given. If the patient desires Invisalign treatment and if they are suitable, their records are taken and a customised computer software program called Clincheck is created. This Clincheck treatment plan gives the patient a preview of the proposed treatment and more importantly, the timescale involved and the final outcome can be viewed before the aligners are manufactured.
Hillton Dentistry has installed the new iTero intraoral scanners in each of their 4 sites to take Digital scans for patients for the purpose of patient education and diagnosis.
