Devan qualified from Birmingham University in 2014 with Honours and a Distinction in Clinical Dentistry. He was awarded the prestigious Carlton Gold Medal for most outstanding student in his year as well as over 10 other prizes across different dental specialties.
Following graduation he continued to pursue his passion for patient care and gold standard dentistry in the West Midlands, winning awards for Best Foundation Dentist, Best Clinical Case and Best Clinical Audit. He then spent a year in London working in oral and maxillofacial surgery where he advanced his surgical skills.
In 2017, he was accepted onto the four year specialty training pathway at Guy’s Hospital, London where he spends 3 days a week treating complex periodontal cases, non-surgically and surgically, referred in by dentists in the London area. It is expected that he will complete his training in 2021 with admission onto the GDC Specialist Register for Periodontics.

He attends conferences globally to ensure his patient’s receive the most advanced and up to date care.
