Dr Kalia qualified as a dentist with a Bachelor of Dental Surgery degree from University of Birmingham in 2019. During the course of this degree, he also intercalated at King’s College London to graduate with a first class Honours Bachelor of Science degree in Health Care Management.
Rahul then went on to complete his dental foundation training year and has since gained further experience as a general dental practitioner before joining us at Crook Log Dental Practice in 2021.
Rahul aims to understand his patients’ concerns and practise holistically by putting his patients’ needs and wellbeing at the centre of their care. His calm, gentle and compassionate approach helps to put even the most nervous of patients at ease. He enjoys helping to restore teeth in the least damaging way, whilst still helping to make the teeth look as natural as possible. He is currently seeking to gain more advanced training in Aesthetic Restorative Dentistry and offer alignment solutions to patients.
Over the last few years, Rahul has published multiple articles in renowned journals, including the British Dental Journal. He has presented at conferences, including at the University of Melbourne. He has also been a representative of the British Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry in the past. Rahul was awarded the NHS Edward Jenner Award in Leadership Foundation in 2020.
Outside of dentistry, Rahul enjoys exploring new places with his camera and reading non-fiction books. You can view some of his photography shots on Instagram at @rahul.pixels. Cricket, tennis and Formula 1 are his favourite sports. Rahul has engaged in many volunteering programmes, both local and abroad. Running, meditation and going to the gym allows him to maintain his own wellbeing.
