Dr Bindhu Koshy
provides dedicated specialist periodontal services in the management of patients with periodontal diseases. She gained her periodontal specialist qualification from the University of London in 2001, then spent the next few years working at the Barts and the London NHS hospital in addition to practice, building on her experience in patient management and research in the speciality of Periodontology.
Since 2006, she took up an academic post as Clinical Lecturer in Restorative Dentistry at Cardiff University where her career has focussed on research into identification of pathogenic mechanisms of periodontal destruction during periodontal disease and peri-implantitis, in addition to taking a lead role in major clinical trials with a view to developing biomarkers for periodontal diseases, alongside major contribution to undergraduate and postgraduate teaching at UDH Cardiff, as well as provision of clinical service within Restorative Dentistry at UDH. She holds a teaching qualification from Cardiff University, MPhil from Cardiff University, membership of the Royal College of Surgeons, is a Fellow of the Higher Educational Academy and is on the GDC Specialist list in Periodontology.
Dr Koshy has presented her work both nationally and internationally and published in leading international periodontal journals. Her expertise covers all aspects of periodontics including nonsurgical and surgical management, regeneration, aesthetics, supportive periodontal therapy and is one of only a few clinicians to limit her practice solely to service limited to the specialist field of periodontics.
Her research background provides her with a good foundation and experience to integrate the scientific background to clinical situations.
She will be accepting referrals for management of patients with periodontal diseases, second opinions and provide specialised treatment protocol for high-risk patients with a view to stabilising their periodontal condition and further monitoring them as required before discharging them back to the care of the GDP.
