I am a strong believer in education and ensure the entire team at Langley Dental Practice offer guidance and advice to all our patients on the importance of oral health and the importance of routine check-ups.

He was one of the youngest dentists to ever graduate in the United Kingdom and is now the owner of the very successful Langley Dental Practice. Dr. Drabu spent years working in some of the busiest dental hospitals in the UK and Saudi Arabia before completing his Fellowship in Dental Surgery at the Royal College of Surgeons of Edinburgh.

Dr. Tariq Drabu in Manchester said, “A team at the Plymouth University Peninsula Schools of Medicine and Dentistry are currently collecting evidence to present to the NICE (National Institute for Health and Care Excellence) committee. The committee is responsible for developing the public health guidelines and the aim of this study is to revise the dental contract in England to encourage oral health awareness and to prevent oral disease. The team are going to present their findings early next year.”

Dr. Tariq Drabu went on to say, “The revisions that we are anticipating to the dental contract will encourage dental professionals to promote oral awareness and help patients to prevent oral diseases. This study, which is currently taking place, will determine the best methods and their effectiveness. Children and adults throughout the UK struggle with dental cavities with periodontitis, which is a serious gum disease, constantly on the rise in adults throughout the country. Another major concern is the early detection of oral cancer.”

Dr. Tariq Drabu closed in saying, “We have been educating our patients at Langley Dental Practice for years. I am a strong believer in education and ensure the entire team at Langley Dental Practice offer guidance and advice to all our patients on the importance of oral health and the importance of routine check-ups. We also offer parents and children information on oral health, teaching children the importance of brushing and teaching them the best brushing methods.”
