Dr Mitesh Badiani BDS DPDS

Clinical Lead

GDC reg no: 66934 Newcastle 11/12/91

Mitesh is the Clinical Lead at Devon Dental Centre of Excellence and has over 20 years of dental experience. He has been the clinical lead of this practice and our sister practice Plymouth Dental Centre of Excellence for 20 years and is also Clinical Lead at a total of 10 Private Practices.

His vision was to create a patient journey which represents a high standard of care and service from the first time the patient walks into the practice right through to the treatment received in surgery and post-treatment communication.  This high level of patient care has been created at the Devon Dental Centre of Excellence. Mitesh is proud of the team which has followed his ethos of putting the patient first.

He is also proud that he has assembled a team of highly experienced specialists which enables patients to be treated ‘in-house’ rather than be referred to either Bristol or London.  The Centre in Ashburton is, in fact, one of only a few practices in the Southwest that offers many types of dental specialist under one roof.

Devon Dental Centre of Excellence has become increasingly successful at providing a variety of post-graduate courses. Mitesh’s vision is that it continues to develop over the next few years and, in conjunction with Professor St John Crean, becomes an internationally recognised post-graduate learning institution.

Mitesh has also been active in supporting overseas communities.  He has set up a charity hospital in Gujarat in North West India that currently treats general patients as well as provides eye surgery and dental treatment. He also runs Dental Camps in India, Kenya, Uganda, Tanzania and Zambia.
