Having qualified from the prestigious Barts and The London School of Dentistry in 2006, Dr Amit Jutlla is now the Clinical Director of several award-winning dental practices in the West Midlands as well as one of the leading Practitioners of Invisalign in the area.
It was at his first Practice, that he identified a strong demand for a cosmetic approach to tooth straightening; and the obvious answer, even though it was then revolutionary and in its relative infancy; was Invisalign!
He strongly believes in providing patients with practical options for improving their smiles in a relaxed environment and continues to expand in this innovative field of dentistry. The recent addition of the iTero digital scanner has opened new avenues for treatment by providing patients with simulated 3D modelling of their teeth instantaneously.
Amit is married with 3 children and is passionate about cars and the natural world. He also enjoys several sports – particularly badminton – and working out at the gym. He is excited about the prospects for his dental group, and, together with his experienced and well-trained staff, is committed to providing an outstanding service by working hard and devoting all the time and attention necessary to get patients the results they want. Enabling them to be sufficiently informed to make the best decisions for themselves. He looks forward to welcoming you to one of his Practices and to helping you smile with confidence.
