Achieve “au naturel” dental results with Broxbourne Dental Care’s friendly Dr Shivani Thakrar.
Dr Shivani Thakrar graduated from Manchester Dental School in 2011. Shivani has always had a passion for all things dentistry and has invested a lot of time outside of clinical practice in maintaining her knowledge in current techniques and evidence based dentistry. At university, she carried out an audit in antimicrobial prescribing in the Dental Casualty Unit in Manchester Dental School. In 2011 she presented and won the best presentation in her evidence based lecture on “Resin Bonded Bridges” in the Charing Cross London Deanery.
In 2013, whilst working in general practice, Shivani completed her MJDF with the Royal College of Surgeons of England. And in 2015 she completed her year long post graduate certificate training in Restorative Dental Practice at the Eastman Dental School.
In dental practice, Shivani prides her work on being precise, safe and evidence based; whether its in root canal treatment, crown and bridgework and even simple fillings. She understands most patients are anxious of dental treatment and her strength is having patience when working with these clients.
Shivani loves restoring a patient’s smile. Whether that’s for a patient with severe tooth surface wear, or for the patient that desires just a subtle improvement. This then sparked her interest in pursuing additional training in short term orthodontics. Now, Shivani has become a certified short term, cosmetic orthodontics provider using the following systems; C-fast, Smile Tru and Quick Straight Teeth. This allows her to pursue her passion of restoring a healthy and aesthetic smile for patients using a combination of orthodontics, veneers and composite bonding, creating the most “au naturel” results.
To broaden her skills in dento-facial aesthetics, she has completed training in facial injectables so she can carry out safe wrinkle-relaxant injections and combine science and art with filler injections including lip augmentation. To supplement this, she is a ZO Skin Health provider which treats a range of skin conditions, because ageing is a multi-layer process and cannot be treated with injectables alone.
Outside of dentistry, Shivani is a keen gym goer (to balance out the true foodie in her). She loves to travel the world with her husband, with a lot of shopping along the way of course!
