Dr.Vidoushi Puchooa about herself:
As one of the laureates of the 2009 cohort, I had the opportunity to pursue my undergraduate studies at the University of Liverpool (UK) School of Dentistry. Following graduation, I worked in the UK as a general dental practitioner within a team of dentists in a mixed NHS/Private practice providing a range of dental treatment to adults and children.
Types of treatment for adults included scales and polishes, fillings, root canal treatment, extractions, dentures, crowns, bridges, veneers, onlays and inlays, and tooth whitening. Treatment for children included preformed stainless steel crowns, fillings, and extractions.
I also worked in secondary care as a Senior House Officer in Maxillofacial Surgery. I performed surgical extractions of wisdom teeth and ectopic canines, dealt with a range of dental and medical emergencies and performed a range of minor oral and skin surgeries. Academically, I have pioneered a research on reduction of blood transfusion risk in oral cancer patients and carried out multiple audits to keep improving clinical care.
My aim is to provide the best standard of care to all patients in a safe environment and I am continually updating my skills to be able to do so. I believe in the practice of minimally invasive, evidence-based dentistry. Prevention, as well as patient education, are at the core of my daily practice. Working as a team with patients, I am committed to achieving desired results and meeting expectations.
