Deepa Shah

Deepa Shah is a Restorative Dentist providing general and advanced restorative dental care.  She graduated in 2005 from Guy’s, King’s and St Thomas’s Dental School in London.  Following graduation her studies and career progression have taken her on various pathways working within general practice, hospital, the community dental service and specialist prosthodontic practice in London.  She has completed an MSc in Conservative Dentistry from the Eastman Dental Institute, London.

Deepa’s philosophy:

“Preventive, aesthetic and functional dentistry, respecting what nature has provided.  The natural tooth is a unique structure and is unmatched by any restorative material.  Therefore my primary aim is to work with you to preserve the teeth that you have, and the beauty of your own smile.”

Deepa will employ a minimally invasive approach to your dental care, offering advanced treatments when required.  She will provide a laidback, comfortable environment for you to look after your dental health.

Deepa has recently moved to North Devon from London following her love of the surf and seeking a relaxed outdoor lifestyle by the sea.  Away from the dental practice you’re likely to find her in the waves down at Croyde Beach or tucking into a cream tea.
