CELEBRATING OUR JOURNEY TO THE PRIVATE DENTISTRY AWARDS 2023

On Friday evening, Dr. Promod and his team will travel to London for the Private Dentistry Awards 2023. They are finalists for five prestigious awards: Practice of the Year, Best New Practice, Team of the Year, Practice Principal – Dr Promod, and Practice Design & Brand.

But how did this new practice, opened just eight months ago, come into existence? In honour of the Private Dentistry Awards and of the team at Alban City Dental, we thought it only fitting to share the story of our Clinical Director, Dr Prakash Promod.

Dr Promod’s personal journey, shaped by unexpected turns and acts of kindness from people along the way, is a narrative woven with resilience, faith, humility, and unwavering commitment to his calling.

A doctor by design – answering the call

Prakash spent most of his childhood in India, growing up as part of a family of doctors. When he was two years old, he told his mum that, one day, he would be a head surgeon. His father’s work as a gynaecologist pursuing Royal College of Obstetrics & Gynaecology qualifications and training took the family from Kerala to Iran and then to Blackpool and back to Kerala again. When it was time to choose his career path, he decided to study dentistry at Manipal University.

He qualified as a dentist in 2000, and spent the next years working in the community dental and maxillofacial departments of the university teaching hospital. He would travel to villages in India, providing free dental care to patients, some of whom had never been treated by a dentist. Some days, he would extract as many as 100 teeth.

During this time, he had the opportunity to observe a bimaxillary osteotomy by Mr Ken Sneddon, a maxillofacial surgeon from East Grinstead Hospital, the birthplace of facial plastic surgery. He performed the surgery in 1 hour and 14 minutes – a procedure that would normally take local surgeons 6-8 hours to complete. It was in that moment that Prakash was inspired to train as a maxillofacial surgeon in the UK.

Training as a maxillofacial surgeon meant that Prakash also needed to earn a degree in medicine. His family were unsure if it was wise to travel so far from home, at great expense, without any guarantee of success as a dental graduate from India.

A sign from above

They received a sign in the form of Reverend John Weir, a Vicar from Bethnal Green. He had travelled to India and spoke at Prakash’s local church. Prakash introduced himself after the service and said that he hoped to travel to England to study Medicine. Mr Weir replied, “Well, if that’s what you’ve been called by God to do, then you must do it. Call me when you reach England if you need anything.” Upon hearing this, his parents gave him their blessing to go.

Turning a misstep into opportunity

When Prakash first arrived in England in 2003 he was put up by his uncle Dr Sam Arthur at their family home in Kendal, the Lake District. It was in Kendal that he first met Sarah Lee who was a newly qualified dentist at the time working her way to specialty training in Orthodontics. Little did he realise then that their paths would cross again in multiple hospital jobs and later at Alban City Dental.

Prakash’s journey to his first job in the UK as an overseas qualified dentist wishing to train in maxillofacial surgery was a difficult one. He posted 206 CVs, each with a hand-written cover letter, to nearly every maxillofacial department in the England, Scotland and Wales, offering to work for free as an honorary clinical attachment. He received 206 letters of rejection, due to his lack of UK experience.

When he had nearly run out of money and was starting to think it was probably best to return to India, he travelled to London to attend a conference held by the Junior Trainees Group of the British Association of Oral & Maxillofacial Surgery. As he was making his way to his seat, he accidentally trod on the toe of none other than Peter Ward-Booth, who he instantly recognised as the author of one of the Maxillofacial Surgery textbooks he had studied in India.

Following the conference, he emailed Mr Ward-Booth to apologise for stepping on his foot and to express what an honour it was to meet him in person. He asked if there were any opportunities to work with him in an honorary capacity.

A modern-day miracle

Before he left London after the conference, he stopped by Bethnal Green to visit Reverend Weir, the priest whom he had met before leaving India. When the priest opened the door, he instantly recognised him and was overcome with emotion. He said that he had been waiting for a miracle from God all day and Prakash was the miracle. It was the Harvest Festival at Church and he didn’t know what message God intended for him to share with his congregation. He invited Prakash to join in the service and preached about the importance of planting seeds. He said, “The word of God is a seed. Several years ago, I said something to this young man that planted a seed. That seed has borne fruit and now Prakash is here with us today.”

That was also a sign for Prakash not to give up on his dream to study medicine in England.

A week later, he received an email response from Peter Ward-Booth, offering him an honorary clinical attachment at East Grinstead Hospital in a month’s time.

A year early

On his way to East Grinstead, he received a voicemail, informing him that there was a mix-up with the dates of the placement: his role didn’t actually start for another 12 months. He decided to travel there anyway, walking into the medical staffing department with his suitcase in hand. He explained the mix-up and asked if there was anything they could do, but he was told that, unfortunately, he would have to return the following year. He asked if he could have a tour of the hospital before he left, knowing that it might be the last time he would get the chance to see this hospital made famous by the pioneering work of Sir Archibald McIndoe during World War II and where several of the textbooks of maxillofacial surgery he had read in India had been written.

A junior doctor showed him around East Grinstead. As they were nearing the end of the tour, he said, “If you have a chance, speak to Mr Ken Lavery (who was the Head of Department) and ask him if there’s anything he can do.” As it happened, Mr Lavery was walking out of the operating theatre at that exact moment. Prakash introduced himself, explained that he had arrived for his honorary clinical attachment only to find out that it was a year early and asked if there were any other honorary roles available. Fifteen minutes later, he received a phone call from medical staffing, offering him an immediate position as an honorary observer.

Unfortunately, hospital accommodation (which was usually available at a subsidised rate) was completely full and staying at a local bed and breakfast would quickly deplete whatever savings he had left. He called Reverend Weir, who put him in touch with the Vicar at St Swithun’s church in East Grinstead. A few minutes later he got a call back saying that the nuns at St Margaret’s Convent had kindly offered him a room to stay for two weeks until hospital accommodation became available.

Care without expectation

During the early days of his honorary observership, to save money, Prakash lived off of a baked potato (which used to cost £1) a day. The women who worked in the hospital canteen quickly realised that he was working unpaid and had very little money and starting saving food for him. They would set food aside and say, “It’s nearly closing time. You should take this, or else we’ll have to throw it away.”

Two months later, Dr. Ajit Kurian joined East Grinstead. Ajit was in a paid role, during holidays from medical school. When he realised that Prakash also planned to attend medical school, but was in an unpaid, observer role, he took him under his wing. From that point on, Ajit paid for all of Prakash’s meals, making sure they always ate well.

At the end of his observership, Prakash obtained his first paid role in maxillofacial surgery at a hospital in Chichester, with the help of a recommendation from none other than Peter Ward-Booth. The department at East Grinstead welcomed him back to join them again a year later when a paid post became available and have supported him throughout his career.

Making his brother smile

It was during his time at East Grinstead and Chichester hospitals that Prakash started placing dental implants, primarily for trauma & cancer patients and also learned advanced implant surgery and grafting techniques in the private sector under the guidance of Mr Ken Lavery. His first implant in practice was in 2006 for his dental-phobic elder brother, who having had a bad experience many years ago, would only trust his brother with his smile. That implant is still going strong!

As his experience grew, he started placing dental implants in private dental practices across London and Essex to raise funds for medical school. When he’d saved enough money, he applied to medical school and successfully obtained a place at Barts in London.

During this time, he also married and celebrated the birth of his daughter.

Prakash finished medical school in 2010. He completed one year of Foundation training in general surgery, orthopaedics and general medicine at Lister Hospital, in Stevenage. He then completed two years of core surgical training in general surgery, orthopaedics and plastic surgery at Harlow, Broomfield and Addenbrookes hospitals.

In the right place, at the right time

During this time, he went through divorce and took a path that surprised many of his colleagues – he reduced his hours at work and stopped doing on-calls so that he could share care of his daughter with his ex-wife and prioritise being a father over being a doctor on call.

As he adjusted to this new stage of life, he took on a part time role doing locum consultant maxillofacial surgeon lists at Ashford Hospital in Kent and then worked in the maxillofacial department at Milton Keynes Hospital. In 2014, he found love for a second time and married later that year. When his wife became pregnant, he accompanied her to The Royal Free Hospital in Barnet for their first scan. As he walked through the lobby, he was spotted by a former classmate who encouraged him to apply for a role in the hospital’s maxillofacial department. He jumped at the opportunity to work closer to home (St Albans). His interview took place nine hours after the birth of his son and, thankfully, he was offered the position!

During his time at the Royal Free, he performed a wide range of surgical procedures, including skin cancer reconstruction, fixing broken jaws and treating facial trauma. He often treated patients who had experienced complications following dental or facial aesthetic procedures from around London and abroad – from infected teeth, to failed dental implants to adverse reactions from facial fillers.

By 2022, he had placed several thousand dental implants and extracted tens of thousands of teeth.

Wisdom from an unexpected source

One morning, he was scrolling through his Instagram feed and saw a post from Nimsdai Purja, the Nepali mountaineer, former Gurkha and British Special Forces soldier who gained international recognition for summitting all 14 of the world’s highest peaks in just six months and six days (14 Peaks, Netflix).

Nimsdai was suffering from intense pain from a wisdom tooth and was unable to find a dentist who could remove it.

Prakash mentioned this to his wife who encouraged him to DM Nimsdai. “Just message him and offer to help him,” she said. “You have nothing to lose. You know you can help him.”

Prakash messaged Nimsdai and, shortly thereafter, received a reply from his wife. She explained that Nimsdai had been told by several dentists that it would be impossible to extract his wisdom tooth outside of a hospital setting and that he would have to be under general anaesthetic. Prakash reassured her, “I have extracted thousands of teeth in my career. If he can open his mouth, I can take out his tooth.”

Nimsdai travelled to a London dental practice that Prakash frequented a few days later and, in less than a minute, Prakash removed his troublesome tooth.

While he was there, Nimsdai asked, “What’s your story, brother?” Prakash explained how he had come to be in England and the story of his career. Nimsdai said, “You should have your own place. You need to believe it and make it happen. It will happen. Don’t worry about anything else. You do it and people will come to you.”

Three days later, Nimsdai climbed Mont Blanc.

Where one door closes, another door opens

That conversation stuck in Prakash’s mind and the seed had been planted to open his own private practice. The following month, he received an email from 24 Hall Place Gardens, where he was renting a consulting room, explaining that they would be closing. He told his wife that he would need to find new premises in St Albans and his wife suggested, “Why don’t you email the owners and ask if you could rent the clinic?”

The rest is history, and the Elms Consulting Rooms were transformed into Alban City Dental & Surgical Centre.

First class service.I wanted to have implants done and was referred to another branch of my own practice. However, I had two consultations and was waiting for the dentist to get back to me with additional information. This was not forthcoming so after my brother recommended Dr Prakash I made an appointment. From start to finish everything was professional. He explained the whole process and I felt comfortable to go ahead with treatment. I won't say it wasn't painful because the injections were beyond painful. I was given dentures and they fit beautifully better than what I had before. When the implants were fitted I felt like a new woman. Thanks Dr Prakash. I was asked if I wanted to opt for the more expensive teeth which I agreed to. However, when I went for the fitting he informed me that I had the cheaper option as the teeth were not joined together. I wouldn't have been any the wiser. Thanks Dr Prakash. You made an experience I was dreading so much more bearable. I would definitely recommend him. Personable, friendly and warm and that's what you want from a dentist.

My experience at Dr Prakash's surgery was wonderful from the beginning through to the end of my treatment.My first visit for consultation was great, all my fears and concerns were soon disappeared. The explanation and advise given for the procedures and treatment to come were clearly delivered.After the first stage of my treatment was done, the doctor made several follow up calls to check on how I was feeling and if there were any issues. He also invited me back to the surgery to ensure everything was OK before I went on holiday.I am very please with the final outcome, I even passed on his details to others who needed the same treatment and they too were extremely happy.It's only two months since my treatment was done and Dr Prakash already invited me back for a review.You will always feel more than a patient at Dr Prakash's surgery and team.Ricardo

Excellent service with a very professional and knowledgeable dentist- Dr Prakash.My son was very nervous and worried about his teeth as his canines damaged the roots of his lateral incisors. His actual dentist could not do the extraction that was needed before he starts wearing braces. and so he made an urgent referral to UCLH, however the doctors there decided it was not urgent, despite the fact it affected badly his confidence.Dr Prakash was amazing in the way he interacted with my son, and how he made him so comfortable.The whole procedure didn’t take him more than 15 min and now my son has his braces on and his confidence back.I contacted uclh and they removed him off the waiting list after being on it for over 10 months.Thank you so much Dr Prakash

I was referred to Alban City Dental by my orthodontics to get an impacted canine removed. Dr Prakash was amazing from start to finish. He answered all of my questions that I had about the surgery. During the surgery he made sure that I was in no pain and got the tooth out a lot easier and quicker than I thought it would be. I would definitely recommend this practice.

Dr Prakash is an incredible dentist! He always goes above and beyond to ensure his patients are very happy. I needed my wisdom tooth extracted as it was causing me pain, and he not only booked me in last minute, but was also available after to answer questions, provide advice & even asked me to come in again to ensure I had no problems during the healing process. Clinic is very beautiful & well maintained. I have recommended him to my entire family as well who have all visited and are extremely happy.

I was referred to Dr Prakash via my usual surgery, and instantly felt in safe hands from the start. I had some front row extractions, and following a period with a temporary denture, a front row of implants fitted. Its important to find someone you can trust with this sort of work, and I am very happy to recommend him, as the treatment and results were excellent.

I want to publicly thank Dr. Prakash for the help he provided by tightening one of my very old implants, which is in the process of being replaced at another clinic outside the UK. It became loose and I could not find anyone able to fix it on the same day, as a specialised tool was necessary to tighten it. I sincerely appreciate the kind gesture of the doctor who, despite not knowing me at all, reopened his clinic (it was already closed down) and fixed the implant. It's truly heartwarming to receive such unexpected and generous help. Thank you again.

Amazing practise! Called in the morning and luckily they’d had a cancellation and were able to fit me in same day (receptionist was a pleasure to speak to)! I was in quite a bit of pain and the dentist was very understanding and patient with me! I ended up needing to investigate whether sinus issues were the cause. But they called me up a few days later to check where I was at with gp and if I needed further assistance. Will be using them again in future!

I cannot emphasise just how caring all the staff are, at this newly opened dental practice. From the warm welcome of the receptionist, to the professional friendly dentists and the gentle care of the chair side dental nurses.My 92 year old father needed the services of a dental surgeon and having read the profile of Dr Prakash Promod on the Alban City Dental website, I felt confident to trust my fathers care to him.We were not disappointed !What an amazing man, kind, thoughtful, experienced and totally competent. Nothing was to much trouble, even to playing my fathers choice of music as he lay in the chair under going his hour long procedure. My father, at all times felt comfortable and confident that he was in safe hands.When Dr Prakash Promod had completed the procedure, Dr Giri Pillai, another excellent and knowledgeable dentist took over to reinstate my fathers smile with a newly made denture.This whole experience for my father has been like a breath of fresh air and he will not be returning to his Nhs practice.This brand new practice with all its brand new and up to the minute equipment is definitely the place to go and surely will be a rising star, in the world of dentistry.To top it all they have their own parking, an absolute consideration when situated in St Albans.

So happy we found Alban City Dental! Sarah Lee, their specialist orthodontist was so knowledgeable, and so lovely with my teenage son. He has a complex case, and she was able to show him in 3D imaging exactly what was going on in his jaw, and how they could fix it. She was considered, kind and obviously has many years experience to draw on. After the appointment, my son said to me "everyone was SO nice and friendly in that surgery mum". Agreed! The whole place has a relaxed atmosphere, and approachable staff. And free parking on site means I can save twenty minutes trying to find a spot in town.

Oh my gosh, what can I say. Simply an amazing place. A dental surgery that feels welcoming and calm with an amazing team of specialists. I took my teenager to meet Dr Prakash Promod & Dr Sarah Lee who is their orthodontics expert about teeth straightening. They couldn’t have been more reassuring, professional and helpful. Our daughter is now fitted with Invisalign which has made her super happy as she is going to get the smile she has always wanted. Dr Lee actually designs the aligners personally which is a rare extra.The location right in town is also fantastic. To have an orthodontist really close to our daughter’s school is an added bonus as it means she can walk there for her regular check ups without missing important schooling in her exam year. They also have their own car park which makes life much simpler in town! Big thank you from us to the whole team including the wonderful Margaret at Reception.I am now looking at having my own treatment there !

An immensely impressive and gifted surgeon is Prakash.

In a world full of noise and hype, he stands as a gentle giant of a surgeon.

I had an outstanding experience with Dr. Prakash at Alban City Dental. From the moment we stepped in, the welcoming atmosphere, ample parking spaces, ambient music, calming art and imagery and the aroma of great coffee set the tone. The staff and team are all so friendly and clearly take pride in their work and professionalism.Dr. Prakash's expertise in implant surgery truly impressed me; he not only executed an exceptional job but also went above and beyond in calming my father's nerves and achieving a terrific outcome and perfect smile. My father by his own very high standards gave him an unheard of (in our family) 10/10 satisfaction score. Dr Prakash’s reassuring demeanor and skillful approach undoubtedly make him deserving of recognition and awards.I believe that the template for Alban city dental sets the precedent and future of innovative cutting edge dentistry, hospitality and world class healthcare excellence. I cannot recommend Dr. Prakash and his team highly enough for anyone seeking top-notch dental care in a comfortable and professional setting.

I was referred to Alban City Dental Centre after a failed extraction at my local clinic by two dentists. Thankfully Dr Prakash was able to accommodate me at short notice and proceeded with the extraction in the most professional manner and without drama. He is clearly a worldwide authority on tooth extraction, achieving what other dentists consider impossible. I highly recommend Dr Prakash and would not hesitate to use his services again.

Exceptional care and expertise define the experience I had with Dr. Giri Pillai and Dr. Prakash Pramod at Alban City Dental& Surgical Centre during my recent wisdom tooth extraction. Despite initial concerns, their seamless approach and genuine care made the entire process remarkably easy.Dr. Prakash Pramod, who performed the extraction, made the entire process exceptionally comfortable from start to finish. His expertise and reassuring manner were invaluable during the procedure. Margaret's warm demeanor added an extra layer of comfort. I wholeheartedly recommend this clinic to anyone in search of top-notch dental treatment. Thank you to the entire team for a remarkable dental experience.

Came in to Alban City Dental to make an appointment for an extraction of an infected wisdom tooth, and to my surprise Dr Prakash was able to fit me in with just a short 20min wait. Facilities are excellent, with an X-Ray machine on site saving a lot of time and hassle. The team were very friendly and efficient with great after care from Margaret at reception who ensured recovery was progressing as expected.A big thank you to Dr Prakash who even found the time to drop us home, as we had walked in. I would definitely recommend the practice to anyone looking for a dental surgery in the area, and I will certainly be back again for any future work.

I have just had my impacted wisdom tooth removed by Dr Prakash and the care and service I have received from him and his team has been absolutely first class. I have had years of trouble with this tooth but due to how badly impacted it was, I have been reluctant to have it extracted. Dr Prakash put me fully at ease and explained clearly the reasons why the extraction was needed. The process itself went very smoothly and the advice and guidance given for post the operation was excellent, including a follow up call and seeing me at short notice a week later to confirm the procedure had gone well.I have had very mixed experiences with dental practices in the past, from poor care to paying excessive fees and charges in central London.Since I became a patient of Alban City Dental a couple of months ago, I have been so impressed by my dentist Dr Harshil, and now through the surgery with Dr Prakash.The dental nurses and reception staff have also been excellent.If you want a dental practice that combines expertise, excellent patient care, a clean and relaxing environment, the very best equipment and an all round friendly, engaging service, look no further than this practice.
