Dr. Arfan Iqbal
My name is Arfan Iqbal and I am the Principal Dentist at Spa Dental Handforth. Having qualified from Manchester Dental School in 2001, I began my career in the very busy referral clinics of Dundee Dental Hospital working alongside some of the top consultants in the country. Here, I developed my interest in Cosmetic and Advanced Restorative Dentistry. After obtaining further qualifications, I earned the prestigious membership of the Royal College of Surgeons in Edinburgh.
Following, this l have worked with several large corporates including BUPA and Colgate in providing a wide variety of cosmetic procedures before becoming the principal dentist at Spa Dental Handforth. I regularly keep up to date with all the latest developments in dentistry, often travelling worldwide to obtain skills in the latest techniques. I enjoy treating nervous patients and have a very caring and professional approach towards them, this can be seen by the hundreds of testimonials received from my very happy patients.
I am very passionate about my dentistry including cosmetic dentistry such as veneers and implants. Many patients come to see me who have not seen a dentist for many years, they may not have been attending due to fear or they may have been ashamed of their smile. I feel especially proud once I have gained their trust, answered all their questions and given them a beautiful natural smile. It’s so rewarding to see them smile confidently for the first time in years and no longer be scared of going to the dentist. This passion is also reflected in my team who go to great lengths to ensure that your visit is as relaxing and as pleasant as can be. To complement my dentistry I carry out facial rejuvenation procedures such as Botox and Dermal Fillers
Outside dentistry I enjoy spending time with friends and family and am a keen badminton player.
