Naj is the newest addition to our team, having joined in February 2021. He graduated from King’s College London in 2011- the same prestigious university as our Principal, Dr Bim Sawhney. He even found time during his dental degree to take a year out and obtain another bachelor’s degree in growing teeth using stem cells. This research was subsequently published in internationally renowned peer-reviewed journals.
From there he worked in both general dentistry and head & neck surgery in North London before going in search of a more sunnier climate to Australia in 2013. He worked exclusively in private practice near both Melbourne and Sydney, all while enjoying the lifestyle and benefits the country had to offer. He can now count scuba diving as one of his passions!
Whilst there he also obtained a postgraduate certificate in prosthodontics (replacing missing teeth) and aesthetic medicine. After 7 years in Australia, he decided to come back to the UK to be closer to friends and family and lay down permanent roots within the Norwich community.
He is a talented, enthusiastic, award-winning dentist who takes great pride in his work. He has made many a patient smile over the years!
When he isn’t obsessing over how to make these amazing smiles, he enjoys racquet sports, graphic design, travelling and looking after his cat!

"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."
“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.”
