Usman and Fozia are a brother and sister team who look after the practice together.
Usman graduated from the University of Manchester and has gained membership of the Royal College of Surgeons. He has built up a loyal patient base and is known for his relaxed manner, especially at putting anxious patients at ease. He also provides complex implant and dental rehabilitation treatments.
His commitment to postgraduate education has culminated in facial rejuvenation, implant and restorative dentistry qualifications. Usman has advanced his experience by working alongside some of the most accomplished dentists and eminent dental implant surgeons since the start of his dental implant career. Consequently, he has trained to perform all complexities of dental implant surgery. He is currently pursuing a Master’s Degree in Restorative Dentistry. His clinical and academic experience allows him to deal with aesthetic and dental rehabilitation cases for which he has an obsessive approach to detail.
Usman has been active in teaching and returned to Manchester University as a teaching fellow in restorative dentistry for undergraduate students and has moved on to mentoring postgraduate students on a Master’s Degree in Dental Implantology.
Fozia studied at Manchester University graduating as a Bachelor of Dental Surgery in 1999.
Fozia is a very caring, gentle dentist with 17 years’ experience, 15 of which have been working in private practice. She joined Standish Street Dental in 2015 and now jointly owns the practice with her brother Usman Hameed. Fozia’s calm, relaxed and caring manner means that she is the perfect choice for patients who are of a nervous disposition. Over the years she has helped many people overcome their fears and become confident regular attenders.
Her dental interests lie in advanced restorative dentistry, for which she completed a post graduate certificate in Manchester. She is able to administer short-term orthodontics and also is a registered ‘Six Month Smiles’ provider. Fozia also provides facial rejuvenation after completing extra studies in ‘Botox’ and Fillers procedures.
As well as taking great care of patients at Standish Street Dental, Fozia’s aim for 2016 is to complete the internationally recognised qualification of MFDS RCSEd and begin a Master’s Degree in Orthodontics.
Outside of dentistry, Fozia has recently taken up cycling. She enjoys the outdoors with her family. Any time she may have left is then taken up by her three children (triplets) who keep her busy day and night!
