Dr. ZOHREH YAZDANI

DENTIST

With over twenty years of experience, Dr. Yazdani is arguably unparalleled in her field – especially when it comes to her passions for smile makeovers and facial aesthetics. Her years of experience have allowed her to master the art of dentistry, providing reliable and beautiful treatments to her patients. She believes strongly in conscientious dentistry and always treats her patients with this in mind. Dr. Yazdani graduated from Karolinska University in Sweden which has been voted as the second best university in the world for dentistry. This exceptional education provided her with an extremely strong foundation and knowledge base from which she has continuously built on; making sure that she stays as up to date as possible with new treatments and evidence-based research.

She has successfully completed the renowned one year Tipton training course in restorative and cosmetic dentistry. To complement her dentistry skills, she has been working for over ten years perfecting the likes of facial rejuvenation procedures such as non-surgical wrinkle reduction treatments and dermal fillers to subtly enhance facial features while maintaining a natural appearance.

She constantly strives to provide the best results for her patients, having trained with some of the best in the world, such as Dr Ourian, the famous aesthetic doctor of choice for the Kardashians. Dr Yazdani has used her decades of experience to create the Symmetrica™ system, exclusive to DOTB, using a series of measurements and lines to achieve tried and tested perfect proportions and positioning of the lips, nose and chin.

She enjoys working with nervous patients and helping them to change their mentality and outlook on going to the dentist. She achieves this by creating a family environment, helping patients to understand that Dental on the Banks is a place that they can trust and enjoy coming to – knowing that any treatment will always be carried out painlessly, professionally, efficiently and effectively.

Dr. RAMTIN TAHERI

ORTHODONTIST

Dr. Ramtin Taheri ensures that only the most effective and proven treatments are offered to his patients, using evidence backed research and case studies to plan his cases.

He completed specialty training in orthodontics (braces) from The University of Gothenburg which is voted as the third best university in the world for its field. Patients of Dr.Taheri can rest assured that the best possible results will always be achieved under his care. These results are not limited to just straightened teeth, but more importantly are tied to the healthy straightening of teeth.

Dr. Taheri always strives to make sure that the teeth work in harmony with the facial appearance and lips, with excellent long term results and healthy dentition. He has been working with patients ranging from between the ages of five to eighty and believes no case is beyond some sort of help or too difficult to work on. He loves a challenge and his infectious passion for his work creates an enjoyable and stress free treatment journey when you visit him at Dental on the Banks. Putting this into perspective, he was recently voted as having the best child treatment case nationally.

Dr. DAMON TAHERI

DENTIST

With a passion for life and a passion for his work, Dr. Taheri has always been driven – having played tennis to a high level until his interests shifted to academia. Since graduating from Bristol University as a dentist, he has been proactive in furthering his knowledge in the fields of dentistry and orthodontics (braces). He successfully acquired his membership in the Joint Faculty of Dentistry and Royal College of Surgeons (MJDF RCS) after only one year and up until last year he had worked on mastering his skills as a dental clinician so he could provide only the best for his patients. His love for orthodontics however led him to follow in the footsteps of his brother at the University of Gothenburg in Sweden – one of the top universities in the world for its field.

He has since spent almost three years perfecting his technical prowess and theoretical knowledge through the specialty programme there. Dr. Taheri now works between Sweden and England treating his private patients. The Swedish philosophy is that all treatment should only be carried out if there is sound evidence to support it. This has allowed Dr. Taheri to bring this principle and level of work to England, making it so that patients in Dental on the Banks receive only the best and most up to date treatments with the help of the state of the art technology when they need it. As a natural people person, he enjoys working with nervous patients as he is adept at making all of his patients feel welcome and at home by creating a calm, enjoyable and stress-free environment during treatments with him.
