Welcome Jelena and Goodbye & Good Luck Bhavin!
It is with sadness that we need to let you know that our dentist, Bhavin Patel, will be leaving the practice in the Spring. Unfortunately for us, we have inspired him a bit too much and he’s decided to buy a practice of his own in Cambridgeshire, saying he wants “a mini EPD of his own”.
Bhavin has been a great member of our team over the last 4 years and he will be very missed. He has always approached his work in the practice with the highest of standards and we are very grateful for the kindness he has shown with patients and staff alike. We wish him every success and we shall keep in touch and be sharing any words of wisdom we have to help him in his new venture.
We’re pleased to say that we have found a lovely dentist to take over Bhavin’s days. Jelena Djordjevic has already joined the practice and will be increasing her days from the beginning of March to work Mondays, Thursdays and Fridays. Bhavin may be working a few extra days or weeks with us to help out while he waits for the purchase of his practice to complete.
Jelena is a very friendly and experienced dentist. Her approach to dentistry fits with ours at EPD and she wants to help her patients achieve the healthiest mouths they can in the most relaxed environment she can achieve. She firmly believes in team work, ethics, empathy and high-quality dentistry, which coincide with our values.
But she’s not just a friendly face, she’s a bright spark too - along with her dental qualification she has a master’s and a PhD in Orthodontics amongst other qualifications. Originally from Serbia, Jelena was working for many years at the University of Cardiff on cutting-edge dental and medical research. She then spent the last few years working in an award winning private practice in Pembrokeshire, West Wales, before relocating to the Midlands in 2019 in order to be more centrally located.

We hope you are all safe and well, and we look forward to seeing you at your next appointment soon.
Jo, Chris and all the EPD Team
