Best Young Dentist nomination for Penrith Practice

Thursday, October 9th, 2014

Stricklandgate Dental Practice is delighted to announce that Dr Satya Patel has been shortlisted as Best Young Dentist in the prestigious Dentistry Awards for the second year running.

The awards, hosted by ‘Dentistry Magazine’ are the most anticipated award ceremony in the dental calendar, rewarding and recognising regional excellence in dentistry.  The awards recognise outstanding individuals and teams who are at the top of their profession and who are continually raising the standards of general dentistry.

Organisers commented that;

“This year the competition was tougher than ever and the judges have been resoundingly impressed and inspired by the quality of entries – you and your team have done supremely well to have come this far!”

To be shortlisted for this award Satya had to demonstrate his hard work and drive for dentistry, show achievements in his career to date and how he is different to other young dentists.  Not only had he to show the uniqueness of Stricklandgate Dental practice, but also demonstrate how they go beyond the regular duty of care and connect with the local community.

Satya, who bought Stricklandgate Dental Practice in 2012, is up against 14 other finalists from the West of the UK.

Satya comments,

“I am delighted to have been shortlisted in the awards for the second year running.  I try to do things a little differently and give my patients the best possible experience of visiting a Dentist.  I have worked so hard to ensure my Practice is the best and we’re well on the way to becoming one of the best practices in the UK and it is fantastic the judges have recognised this achievement.”

The awards feature an esteemed panel of expert judges from the industry.  The winners will be announced in a glamorous ceremony in London in November.

Penrith dentist calls a Toothbrush Amnesty

Tuesday, September 2nd, 2014

September is ‘Oral Heath’ month at Stricklandgate Dental Practice in Penrith and Principle Dentist Dr Satya Patel is calling out to all patients to join their ‘Toothbrush Amnesty’ helping to raise awareness and highlight the importance of oral health.

The team wanted to inform patients of the significance of maintaining a healthy mouth and with Oral Health Month in mind they are offering their patients who book an appointment during September to bring an old toothbrush into the practice and in return they will give a new one for free in their Toothbrush Amnesty.

A good toothbrush is essential for good oral health; a toothbrush can have 10 million bacteria living on it, which can cause gum disease, tooth decay and bad breath, so the best way to limit bacteria on a toothbrush is to replace it on a regular basis – Stricklandgate Dental Practice recommends every 3 months.

Everyone is probably guilty of using a toothbrush when it’s past its best; leading to less efficient cleaning and in the longer term poorer oral health. Simply changing your toothbrush on a regular basis not only helps to maintain a healthy mouth, but if used correctly should save money as less dental treatment will be required.

Dr Patel comments,

“I’ve seen lots of cases of poor oral health and some simple things can be done to ensure problems like tooth decay can be prevented.  We decided to run a Toothbrush Amnesty to help people recognise the importance of maintaining good oral health and give patients the opportunity to kick start their new regime with a brand new toothbrush!”

If your toothbrush is looking past its best, patients and new patients can simply take it along to Stricklandgate Dental Practice any day in September and they’ll exchange it for a new dentist approved one FREE – Now that’s something to smile about.


Entrepreneurial dentist set to get Cumbria smiling

Thursday, October 3rd, 2013

Satya Patel moved to Cumbria a year ago from his home in West Yorkshire to pursue his dream of owning his own dental practice.

Satya decided to move to Cumbria as he had been looking to buy a well established family practice for a couple of years and Stricklandgate Dental, in Penrith was ideal.  It had a good reputation locally and was built on a high standard of dentistry with excellent patient care.

Satya bought Stricklandgate Dental Practice in December 2012 and is the sole Director.  It is different to other practices in the area as it has been built on an excellent foundation of private dentistry over the last 30 years by the previous owners.  He now aims to take the practice into a new era; specialising in cosmetic dentistry.

“I enjoy building relationships and trust with my patients and then delivering the best care. I love creating a smile that my patients can be proud of and seeing the impact it has on their life. Ultimately I want my patients to be happy with the treatment they receive and smile with confidence.”

Satya says he’s always had a “scientific brain” and initially wanted to become a doctor. After undertaking work experience in Chicago when he was 17 he realised that he preferred the more hands on nature of dentistry which also required artistry.

Following his dream of becoming a dentist Satya graduated from Bristol University in 2003 with a BDS Bachelor of Dental Surgery in 2003.  He was awarded an MSc in Implantology with Distinction as well as the MJDF RCS Eng and Dip Rest RCS eng.  He has continued studying over the past ten years and with a vast array of qualifications and experience has enabled him to become a clinical mentor for the British Academy of Implant and Restorative Dentistry, helping to train other dentists in implantology.  He has most recently appointed MJDF Examiner for the Royal College.  Satya has also been a clinical panel member for the Dental Complaints Service since 2006 and Sponsorship Secretary for the Leeds and District British Dental Association; all this and he is only 33!

Before coming to Penrith Satya worked as a  self employed advanced restorative dentist working   in practices across the country including Yorkshire and Ashby de la Zouch where he has built up an enviable reputation.

Since moving to Penrith, Satya has embraced local life and feels part of the family already; he has found the Cumbrian people to be very friendly and approachable and is set to be one to watch and he pursues his dream of getting Cumbria smiling.
