About Us

Victoria Road Dental Practice is part of the Exate group.

Alongside its dental practices, Exate provides a range of other services, some of which are also in healthcare. Everything we do is connected by one clear aim:

To combine the skills and qualities of our team with first-class service so we continue to set new standards of excellence for every one of our customers and patients.

The Victoria Road Team

Victoria Road Dental Practice is owned and led by Dr Dilen Patel and Dr Yasmin Alloub, who are both experienced dentists.

Dilen graduated from Sheffield University in 2010, and soon after passed part 1 of the Membership of the Joint Dental Faculties (MJDF) exam with the Royal College of Surgeons. He has since completed a postgraduate Certificate in Implantology at the prestigious David Guy clinic in Cardiff and is about to complete a diploma in restorative dentistry at Professor Paul Tipton’s institute in London.

Yasmin graduated from the University of Sheffield in 2009, and soon after passed the Membership of the Joint Dental Faculties (MJDF) exams with the Royal College of Surgeons. While working in a general dental practice she developed a keen interest in the science and art of endodontics – a specialism that focuses on diagnosing and treating tooth pain and performing root canal treatment. Yasmin is now studying for an MsC in endodontics with the prestigious Simplyendo

Dilen and Yasmin are committed to making the most of the latest technology and practice so the whole team at Victoria Road can provide the best and most complete dental care possible. They also understand that, along with our expert and kind treatment, the environment we provide for our patients is critical to their experience. This is why we are planning to refurbish the practice to continue to maintain its high standards.
