I graduated in Dentistry (BDS) from India in 2012 and attained Master of Public Health (MPH) degree from the University of Glasgow in 2014. I have worked as a general dentist across private and government practices in New Delhi, India before taking up the post of a Demonstrator in the Department of Community Medicine at Government Medical College Jagdalpur, India.
I work as a Research Assistant on the Scottish Oral Health Improvement Prison Programme (SOHIPP), which aims to aim to contribute to the development, implementation and evaluation of oral health improvement activities for prison populations across Scotland.
My work within the programme involves but is not restricted to oversee the day to day management of the impending 2nd SOHIPP Survey and further development and evaluation of the oral health promotion resource material for the Mouth Matters Mentors Programme (M3 Players).
