Dr Adnan Safdar

BDS (King’s) BSc (Hons) MFDS RCS Ed PG Cert (Rest Dent) MSc (Dental Implantology  (Manchester – merit)
GDC No: 153742

Adnan graduated from King’s College London in 2008. Whilst at King’s, he spent an additional intercalated year of study in Biomaterials for which he attained a First Class (Hons) BSc degree as well as a distinction for his research project.

He then embarked on a journey to develop his skills and broaden his perspective in dentistry. He worked in the Oral & Maxillofacial departments in Northwick Park Hospital (London) and Wexham Park Hospital (Slough). Following this he completed a Restorative Dentistry post in the Charles Clifford Dental Hospital (Sheffield) and then worked as a Specialty Dentist in Restorative Dentistry in Glenfield Hospital (Leicester).

Adnan eventually moved to Manchester, spending a number of years in NHS dentistry before ultimately working fully in private practice. He continued his enthusiasm for learning and building his skills in order to offer the highest standard of care for his patients. He completed a Post Graduate Certificate in Restorative Dentistry (Tipton Training) and an MSc in Dental Implantology with merit (University of Manchester) in 2015.

Since then, he has attended numerous seminars, conferences and courses both within the UK and abroad to enhance and refine his dental implant skills including the ‘Urban Regeneration Programme’ with Prof Istvan Urban, (Budapest), ‘Zero Bone Loss Concepts’ with Prof Tomas Linkevicius (Lithuania) as well as courses on Guided Surgery, Immediate Full Arch Loading, Sinus Lifting, Digital Dentistry and more.

Adnan splits his time across 4 dental practices: Dentist on The Rock, Bury and mydentist practices in Manchester, Burnley and Lancaster. He has been using SMOP for planning his implant cases for the last 3 years and is able to design and print his own surgical guides using this software.

Away from dentistry, Adnan enjoys spending time with his young family, socialising with friends, travelling, trekking, playing football, reading and supporting Leicester City!
