The Team at White Smiles in Ascot

Rebecca White - Practice Owner

Firstly, a very warm welcome to White Smiles, Sunningdale.

My story is rather a unique one, in that I am not a dentist, but I have worked in the field of dentistry for a number of years. My journey began as a dental nurse, where I achieved the National Certificate for Dental Nursing (2007) and had the first taste of how immensely rewarding this healthcare profession can really be. I subsequently continued my professional development, eventually managing and operating 25 dental practices, undertaking various consultancy roles for dentists and corporates all over the UK. This only fuelled my burning ambition to one day open my own dental practice.

The broad knowledge and experience I gained working in both a clinical and non-clinical capacity have really helped me understand the patient journey, and the importance of embracing it every step of the way. Taking inspiration from working with some great clinicians and fantastic environments, I was able to create a vision for the kind of dental practice I wanted to achieve. I am therefore delighted to introduce 'White Smiles'!

At White Smiles we place the emphasis on the provision of bespoke treatment, tailored to suit your individual needs. We really do go that extra mile, from in-depth discussions on the range of services we can offer to fulfil your expectations, to ensuring that we can provide you with the most welcoming, caring, and safe environment. We are local family-orientated practice, and our commitment is to you, and providing the best service you could possibly ask for.

Dr. Roshan Panju - Dental Implantologist

During this time, he also passed the prestigious Royal College Examination and gained membership to the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Glasgow.

This training has provided him with a great foundation for Dental Implants and for injecting anywhere in the face and neck, a much-needed skill in the administration of Botox and Dermal Fillers. Rosh continues to practice general dentistry, although his real passion lies in Oral Surgery and Dental Implants.

Rosh grew up on the island of Mombasa in Kenya and moved to Liverpool when he was 18. He is a keen hiker and conquered a few major peaks in Kenya including Mount Kilimanjaro, and hiked along the entire Coastal Path (the longest in the UK).
