Saritha Vasireddy - Principal Dentist
BDS 2003, IQE
GDC No: 188568
I graduated from the SDM College of Dental Sciences Dharwad, India in 2003, moving to the United Kingdom the same year.
After 3 years training in Maxillofacial Surgery / Orthodontics at Dumfries, Galloway Royal Infirmary in Scotland and the James Cook University hospital in Middlesbrough, I completed the ORE exams in 2010 followed by vocational training in Driffield, East Yorkshire.
Since 2011, I have been working in mixed NHS/Private dental practices in York. This has allowed me to be able to commit to delivering the highest quality of dentistry to all my patients. Alongside my clinical work, I have attended numerous courses which have expanded my knowledge and skills.
In my previous role, in addition to working as an Associate Dentist, I was fortunate to be honoured the role of Clinical Support Manager. Through this role I was responsible for coaching the dentists and the support staff in the region. I also provided support to the practice team in implementing and maintaining excellent customer service, quality, cost, UDA and private performance in accordance with company strategy, goals and values. I pride myself that I was able to encourage development and team working (in conjunction with operational management) as well as ensuring dentists are compliant with GDC, NHS and legislative requirements particularly in relation to the NHS dental contract.
A course I was particularly proud to complete was a yearlong course in Restorative Dentistry at the prestigious Paul Tipton Academy in Manchester, which has given me the confidence in offering patients cosmetic treatments to a high standard.
I also have special interest in Orthodontics and because of this I have been offering Invisalign treatment since 2012.
Currently I am undertaking a Diploma in Law and Ethics course at Bedford University.
Away from Dentistry I love travelling and walking my 3 year old Shih Tzu.
