Bim graduated in 2004 with an honours in dentistry at the world renowned Guy’s Hospital, now part of Kings College Hospital, London. He has worked in both the NHS and in private practice in Norwich and London and has therefore gained a vast amount of experience in all aspects of the profession.
In 2011 he set up Riverside Dental, his own private practice in a fantastic location in the heart of Norwich City where he leads and teaches a team dedicated to excellence. In the first year of opening he was shortlisted for Best Young Dentist & Best Practice (East) at the Dentistry Awards.
He is a member of the joint faculty of the Royal College of Surgeons, England and is also a full member of the British Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry (BACD). Very few dentists in Norfolk are part of this prestigious academy and membership is based on constant training in cosmetic dentistry.
In 2008 he became one of the youngest members of the teaching staff at Guy’s Hospital, part of the prestigious Kings College Hospital, London where he used to study. As well as leading the team at Riverside Dental, he also lectures to qualified dentists on cosmetic dentistry, especially tooth whitening, at various venues in East Anglia, including the Norfolk & Norwich Hospital, Addenbrookes, Ipswich Hospital and Kings Lynn Hospital. He will also be joining the London Deanery as a speaker in 2014.
He is certified by Invisalign & Inman Aligner to provide adult orthodontics using invisible braces. He has attended numerous courses including how to place the best tooth coloured, aesthetic fillings to courses further afield in Boston, USA for implant seminars. In 2011 he completed the year long Aesthetic Dentistry & Cometic Dentistry Course run by the world renowned clinician, Dr Chris Orr, past president of the British Academy for Cosmetic Dentists.
In 2012 he was selected to be one of the official dentist’s at the spectacular London 2012 Olympic Games. At the event he was based at the Athletes Village and volunteered his time to treat the athletes and their officials. The whole experience was an unforgetable one!!
He enjoys general, family and cosmetic dentistry and strongly believes that a minimal invasive approach coupled with the latest technology & materials produces highly aesthetic, long lasting results.
As RIverside Dental’s reputation has established itself Bim’s dentistry has become sort after, now used by leading professionals, business owners, along with Norwich City Football Players and staff and lots of the Club’s fans as well!
“Due to his clinical & teaching experience in teeth whitening, Bim currently accepts referrals from other Norfolk dentists for teeth whitening and other cosmetic procedures. For more information please email him”
In his spare time he likes to keep fit by playing various sports. Combining travelling and teaching with charity work has also been a passion of his ever since he graduated.

"I brought myself to Dr Sawhney after a bad experience elsewhere involving the removal of a conspicuous tooth resulting in practical concerns and a loss of confidence. I was reassured by the quality of care and advice I received and was able to decide upon a dental implant with full knowledge of the costs and process, including the timescale of six months. I reminded myself of the Chinese proverb 'The best time to plant a tree was 20 years ago; the second best time is now' so had no hesitation. That treatment was almost a year ago and I have enjoyed the benefits ever since; especially in the protection of adjacent teeth and the absence of self-consciousness whenever there was a cause to smile."
“Dr. Sawhney has been excellent at recommending the correct treatments and ensuring I have had the best service possible. I would recommend Riverside Dental to everyone, especially nervous patients, as the staff could not make you feel more relaxed. I am now more confident in my appearance, which makes a hugh difference!”
“Amazing dental practice who I have already highly recommended to all of my family and friends. Not only are all of the staff so helpful and friendly, but they have transformed my smile. I also recommend the Invisalign treatment as well as having bonding work, as Bim did an outstanding job! Thanks again.”
