Daljit gained her BDS at Guy’s Dental Hospital, London in 1996. She was appointed House Officer in Oral and Maxillofacial surgery at Birmingham’s Queen Elizabeth Hospital the following year before embarking on her career in general practice. Whilst in general practice she gained her MFGDP at London’s Royal College and subsequently enrolled in the MSc program in Periodontology at GKT. Her research project examining the effect of periodontal treatment on inflammatory marker blood levels was nominated for the Sir Wilfred Fish Prize and was presented to the Royal College of Surgeons in 2001.
Since completing the MSc program in 2001, Daljit has taught as a clinical demonstrator at GKT and, in 2005, limited her practice to Periodontics. For the last 20 years she has worked at a number of referral-only practices in Central London and the South East accepting complex periodontal cases, including those where multidisciplinary care is indicated. Daljit also lectures to dentists and hygienists as part of the continuing professional development programme. Clinically, she has a wide range of experience treating complex periodontal cases including crown lengthening, ridge augmentation, root coverage procedures, guided bone regeneration, socket preservation and multidisciplinary treatment planning. She keeps up to date with developments in the field by attending national and international courses and conferences.
As well as working in practice Daljit, has taken on a role as a Clinical Research Dentist at King's College London.
Daljit is a GDC registered Specialist in Periodontics and is available for consultation at The Village Dental Centre, Gerrards Cross and is happy to accept referrals from colleagues.
