Dr Sabina Hameed is highly experienced in all aspects of Implants, Oral surgery and Periodontics. She is the only UK dentist to have trained at both of the 2 most prestigious universities in the USA; UCLA (University of California Los Angeles) and USC (University of Southern California, Los Angeles).
After qualifying from Guy’s hospital, London in 2000, Dr Hameed has acquired an extensive body of knowledge and clinical experience in both the UK and USA working in general practice, community dentistry as well as in Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery (OMFS), Prosthodontics, Restorative and Paediatric Dentistry.
In 2007, she was invited to do a 1-year OMFS Implant fellowship at UCLA, training in implants and advanced surgical procedures (including sinus lifts and bone grafts) with world renowned clinicians. To enhance her Oral surgery skills, she subsequently worked as a Speciality Dr in OMFS at the Royal Berkshire and West Berkshire NHS Trusts for 4 years.
In 2014 Dr Hameed wished to further enhance her skills and so returned to California after being accepted onto a 3-year full time specialist training and Masters program in Advanced Periodontology and Implant Dentistry at USC, Los Angeles. She completed this in 2017, becoming the only Specialist Periodontist in the UK to have qualified from USC.
Dr Hameed is very passionate about her work, and imparts this enthusiasm to her patients and colleagues. She has won several awards for her Masters research and has published in peer- reviewed journals. She has a keen interest in teaching and education having previously held positions at King’s College London and the University of Portsmouth, as well as being an Examiner at the Royal College of Surgeons of England (9 years). She has also taught hands-on courses, given lectures and presented at international meetings.
Outside of Dentistry, Dr Hameed has a passion for health, natural healing and fitness. She enjoys tennis, running and hiking and participates in a variety of community and charity events. She also loves baking and fashion, and secretly wishes to be a contestant on Masterchef!
