Rahim Kanji

BDS MSc (Dist) Dental Implantology

Implant Surgeon

GDC: 103150

Since graduating from Manchester University in 2006, Rahim has developed extensive experience with both aesthetic and restorative dentistry whilst pursuing his personal interest in dental implants. Rahim now focuses within the field of dental implants and places dental implants across multiple practices around the North West.

His work is typified by an exceptional level of professionalism, which extends to a strong focus on continued professional development and keeping up to date with the latest advances and techniques. He has taken this to a new level with his work in lecturing and mentoring dentists new to the field.

Using the latest technology Rahim is able to use digital work flow when treatment planning for his implant placement which makes it much more efficient when communicating with referring dentists. This also enhances the patient’s understanding and also allows for complete precision/accuracy of the treatment.

Rahim’s attitude to patient care is very simple, “I believe in treating my patients in the way I would wish to be treated myself. This might sound obvious, but when helping a patient making an important decision, it’s important to me personally that they understand every aspect of their proposed treatment. This way I can be sure they have complete confidence in their treatment decision and my skills as a dentist experienced in implants.

The key to providing precise, effective and comfortable dental implants is to make full use of the latest dental technologies such as CT scan and digital work flow to meticulously plan each operation. This combined with a high quality implant system.”
