Neel Sanghavi

Neel Sanghavi

Principal Dentist

I qualified in Liverpool in 2001 and then finished a postgraduate diploma from the Royal College of Surgeons of Edinburgh in 2004 with the intention of entering specialist training in restorative dentistry. But after working in general dental practice, I found I really enjoyed looking after families, seeing people on a regular basis and building up long term relationships with them, rather than seeing people as "cases" on a one off basis which is what I would have done as a specialist. I also discovered that working in general dental practice allows me to do complex dentistry and at the same time make a big difference. To this end I have dedicated myself to learning and growing in my profession and have invested a great deal in courses in the UK, US and Europe.

I love spending time with my family and my 3 year old son, beyond that I am a very keen gardener, growing my own vegetables and working towards self-sufficiency in summer!

Dental Hygienist

I qualified as a Dental Hygienist from The University of Essex in 2015 after working as a dental nurse previously. I am also involved in the teaching and training of new dental nurses and help run courses for qualified dental nurses. I joined the Hello Dental team in 2016 and have loved being part of such a friendly team.

I really enjoy treating nervous patients and building strong relationships with everyone I see, I want all of the patients I see to consider a visit to the Hygienist a pleasant experience.

In my spare time I love going on bike rides and make sure I hit the gym regularly, I’m hoping to travel more in the future.

Practice Manager and Prevention Nurse

I have been a Dental Nurse for 11 years. I absolutely love my job and all aspects of it.
I qualified as an Oral Health Educator in 2011, this means I can educate patients on the best techniques to maintain and manage their oral health at home. We have a strong focus on Oral Health Care here at Hello Dental Colchester and strive to get our patients involved in Oral Health and understanding the key techniques and dietary advice to manage this in a way that is customised to fit your lifestyle.

When I am not working I enjoy spending time with my family, going for long walks or even just to the park with my young son who is growing up far too quickly.
