Dr Sanjay Gautam
Sanjay qualified as a dentist from King’s College, London in 1993. He went on to sit the LDSRCS at the Royal College of Surgeons of England in London in 1994 and the MFGDP in 1996. He has also completed Postgraduate Certificate in Healthcare Education from University of Sheffield Hallam and also attained Certificate in Mentoring at the Faculty of General Dental Practice. He has been an examiner for the MFDS Examination at the Royal College of Surgeons of Edinburgh.
He has been practising dentistry since 1993, of which thirteen years were spent in a large practice outside Leeds, where he became involved in vocational training as a trainer for dental graduate in 1998. He has continued to be a trainer (Educational Supervisor) in his own practices from 2008 onwards. He was nominated as ‘Vocational Teacher of the year, 2008’.
Sanjay bought the Leeds clinic in 2007 with his wife, Sakshi. The practice has since grown organically to include two more clinics in York and Horsforth.
Sanjay loves learning new things and is constantly involved in updating his skills- dental, culinary or athletic.
He enjoys treating patients and seeing transformations from preventative dental care to a full range of cosmetic treatments and aligning teeth with Invisalign.
In his spare time, he loves going for family walks, cycling, cooking and trying to tire his English Springer Spaniel out!
Dr Gagndeep Chagger
Gagan qualified in 2017 from the University of Leeds with a Masters in Dentistry.
He is an approachable and friendly dentist who has a keen interest in learning about and using the latest technology to provide the best treatment for his patients, such as same day crowns using CEREC.
He enjoys getting to know his patients, to build a rapport and often finds way to calm his nervous patients before treatment.
Gagan has a keen interest in improving smiles through using a clear brace system called Invisalign Go and composite bonding. He has a long-term interest in further studying orthodontics and endodontic dentistry.
Gagan has recently taken up long distance running as a hobby and is currently planning to run his first half marathon. He also enjoys watching football and supports Manchester United, something which he has learnt to be unpopular when relocating to Leeds in 2007.
He also enjoys hiking in the Yorkshire Dales and Lake District and loves capturing its landscape through aerial photography.
Treatment Co - ordinator
Hi, I’m Carmel, the Treatment Co-ordinator at Perfect Smile Clinic.
I’ve worked in dentistry for over 20 years and started off as a 19 year old trainee dental nurse at a practice in West Yorkshire where I started working with our principal dentist, Sanjay Gautam. I qualified in 2002 and did further courses after qualifying. I then became a treatment co-ordinator and joined Perfect Smile Clinic when I moved over to York.
The role of treatment co-ordinator entails lots of different things, so each day is very different, which I really enjoy. My main focus is the cosmetic treatments we offer, which include Invisalign, implants and other cosmetic treatments, so if you would like any cosmetic treatment or have any questions about any treatment option, you will probably see me to discuss these treatments. I love that I still get to deal with patients and talk to them about their treatment they are having and reassuring them if they are nervous.
Working at Perfect Smile Clinic is brilliant! We have three practices; one in York, Oakwood and Horsforth, I am able to work at all three practices and meet a variety of different people which I enjoy.
