Jiten believes his patients deserve the best and continues to strive to provide the best level of care. Jiten has a keen interest in continual professional development and continues to attend various courses and conferences around the world. To further his interest and passion in Implant dentistry, in 2013 Jiten commenced the Diploma in Implant Dentistry at the Royal College of Surgeons of England. This diploma is considered the gold standard in Dental implant training and is one of the few dentists to be awarded the Advanced Certificate on successful completion of the Diploma.
