Syed completed his undergraduate dental degree in his home country of Pakistan, where he and his wife Riffat ran a successful practice together before moving to Scotland in 2007, when he completed the strict Licensing Examinations of the General Dental Council for non EU practitioners wishing to work in the UK.
He worked within NHS Highland (ultimately as a lead clinician) in Fort William and Nairn until 2012, where one of his chief responsibilities was the treatment of nervous patients.
Syed has a special interest in orthodontic treatments, and is a trained provider of InvisalignTM (invisible braces for children and adults). Recently he has obtained a post graduate diploma MFDS from the Royal College of Surgeons in Edinburgh. He is currently further enhancing his clinical skill set by enrolling on an advanced restorative course, which he should complete by the end of this year.
