Hi I am Dr Vab Vyas one of the principle dentist at Circle Dental.

After graduating from the University of Manchester in 2003, I worked in a busy General Practice in Essex and Hertfordshire for six years building experience in a range of dental procedure including cosmetic dentistry. I have since completed Diploma of Membership of the Joint Dental Faculties from the Royal College of Surgeons and post graduate certificates related to teaching and mentoring in dentistry.

My ethos is to provide the highest quality of dentistry with minimal biological cost using the latest techniques. My tenet to provide patients with better smiles using minimally invasive treatment lead me to undertake a Diploma in Restorative Dentistry (FGDP Royal College of Surgeons) and a MSc in Orthodontics (University of Warwick), enabling me to develop systems where I can straighten teeth and improve the appearance of individual teeth with
For orthodontic treatment, I use a range of appliances to correct misaligned teeth from fixed metal and tooth coloured braces to removable invisible braces. Also, I have attended courses by the best in the field of cosmetic dentistry, on using tooth coloured restorations as an alternative to more invasive dental procedures.

In addition, I have a passion for teaching and take pride in my role as a clinical tutor at the University of Central Lancashire working alongside an excellent team of tutors, helping to train undergraduate dental students. I have the privilege to train new dental graduates as an Educational Supervisor for Health Education North West, for three successive years since 2012.

Away from this, I am thankful for a daily reminder that there is a life outside of dentistry, my family including my two boys and a girl help to keep me grounded; we cherish our family breaks to the countryside and when time permits, I steal myself for some meditation. I dabble in sports such as cricket and badminton and played at local club level.
