Dr Sunita Verma, Principal of Sparkle Dental Boutique close to Ealing has been selected by the Cosmetic Dentistry Guide as an expert. The Cosmetic Dentistry Guide is an informational site where patients can learn about cosmetic dental procedures, take part in forums which discuss all aspects of dentistry, interact with other patients and get expert advice from cosmetic dentists.
Sunita says “Since joining Cosmetic Dentistry Guide, a week or so ago, I have been inundated with questions from patients up and down the country on all matters related to cosmetic dentistry. There clearly is a need for more information and a greater patient understanding of the cosmetic options that are available to them. I am really pleased to be able to help patients with their cosmetic dental concerns, be it over the web.”

Dr Sunita Verma, Sparkle Dental Boutique close to Acton has been asked to become an examiner for the British Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry (BACD) accreditation process. This follows on from Sunita being the first and only woman in England to achieve accreditation.
The BACD is committed to promoting the practice of quality cosmetic dentistry, and has recently introduced credentials to allow its members to demonstrate that they have reached an agreed level of ability.
Candidates seeking accreditation will have to brave the `black chair’ as they answer questions on their specialist subject, their own previously submitted dental cases to be awarded the coveted accreditation.
Sunita says “Sitting in the `black chair’ was a little daunting, as it had taken me a few years to submit and pass the 5 clinical cases that we had to anonymously submit. When these had all been passed there was a Viva examination where I answered questions from examiners about treatment methods chosen and materials that I had used.”
Sunita goes on to say “Examiners are usually drawn from BACD accredited members and so it is a great honour to have been asked to be an examiner. Although the programme Mastermind is well known for its challenging questions, intimidating setting and air of seriousness, I look forward to meeting potential candidates and acknowledging excellence in cosmetic dentistry.”
