Meet the Team
Dr Yatin Nanavati
BDS (Hons.) University Of Manchester 1998
My interest in dentistry arose from my up-bringing in a medical background with both my parents being doctors. I enjoy working with people and have always liked to have a hands-on approach to different tasks. My aim is to provide high quality dentistry while ensuring my patients are relaxed and comfortable. I have been providing dental care to my patients at Hayes Dental since 2000.
I have completed the Dawson Academy Core Curriculum run by the prestigious Dawson Academy from the USA -which taught me the necessary skills to deal with more complex treatments and treatment planning required to provide a excellent outcome. I have also attended the Larry Rosenthal Anterior Aesthetics course and a course by Derry Rogers on Veneer preparations at the World Aesthetic Congress in London. I strongly believe in keeping abreast of all new developments in dentistry and this means I am regularly attending professional courses to keep updated with the best treatment options.
My extensive experience spanning over many years in General Dental Practice has enabled me to acquire tremendous exposure in all fields of general dentistry, particularly in cosmetic dentistry (including smile make-over design and teeth whitening) and surgical dentistry (including placing dental implants).
I travelled to work in Australia in 2010 for about 2 Years and I had the pleasure of working in the very prestigious Cottesloe Dental in Perth. I gained a wealth of experience and was fortunate to provide the highest quality dentistry in a fully private practice.
I am at ease seeing all patient groups and I can converse in Hindi, Urdu, Gujarati, Kiswahili (basic) and of course English! My hobbies include travelling, photography, music and computers.
I am married with two beautiful daughters and look forward to providing you and your family with dental care of the highest quality in a relaxed and caring environment.
Dr Twana Mirza
BDS MFDS RCS (Edinburgh)
I have been at Hayes dental since 2005 providing dental care to all my valued patients. I have had many years experience since I qualified in 1988.
I have successfully completed the Diploma of Membership of the Faculty of Dental Surgery (MFDS RCS) after I was registered with the General Dental Council.
I enjoy all aspects of dentistry including Cosmetic, Implant and Surgical dentistry. I have valuable experience working in hospital in the Oral Surgery departments.
Dr Gonzalo Lopez
BDS Spain 2011
I obtained my degree in dentistry in Valencia- a city on the east coast of Spain.
In 2012 I came to the U.K. where I worked in a busy NHS practice in Nottingham. In early April 2016 I came to join the team at Hayes Dental.
In these years I have performed extensively as a general dentist, developing skills on all dental procedures finding particular interest on Oral surgery such as dental implants and cosmetic dentistry. All the while I’ve enjoyed my dentistry immensely and relished the opportunity to care for my patients in helping them to achieve their dental goals.
While working as a general dentist I have also been attending courses in order to continue developing my special fields of interest. Having attended many courses so far I thoroughly enjoyed attaining a Diploma from the Immediate Implantology Institute of Valencia in Implantology and oral surgery. I also have attended a Digital Smile Design course in London along with many other courses on these areas and others.
I strive to always keeping practicing at the highest standard for my patients.
I also always try to find time to enjoy travelling and discovering cultures and food along with other hobbies like DIY, technology or spending time with friends.
Dr Gillian Ngae
BDS Otago 2000
I qualified from the University of Otago Dental School, New Zealand (NZ) in 2000. Before moving to the UK, I have four years of private practice experience in New Zealand. Since arriving to the UK in 2004, I have worked predominantly in mixed NHS and private practice. In 2012, I gained my Master of Science in Oral Medicine from Eastman Dental Institute (UCL) at London. Currently I am studying part-time and working towards a Diploma in Restorative Dentistry.
I regularly attend continuing education and postgraduate course in Cosmetic Dentistry and Aesthetic Restorative Dentistry to enhance my skills. I am certified to provide Orthodontic treatment using Inman aligner, Clear aligner and Six month smile.
I am highly motivated and enjoy working with patients in a friendly, relaxed environment. My interests are in Preventative, Restorative, Cosmetic and Orthodontic. With these skills I aim to improve patient’s oral health and smile.
Outside work I enjoyed cooking, reading books about food and nutrition, travelling, going to the gym and I play Cello with one of London’s amateur orchestra every Thursday evening.
