Shanon Patel

Shanon divides his time between working in a large multi-disciplinary specialist practice in central London and teaching future Specialist Endodontists in the Postgraduate Unit at King’s College London Dental Institute.

His PhD thesis assessed the use of CBCT in the management of Endodontic problems. Shanon is actively involved in research, and has co-supervised over 40 Masters and PhD students. Primary research interests reflect some of the interesting challenges he faces in everyday clinical practice and include survival of teeth, managing dental trauma, microbiology and CBCT in Endodontics. As a result he regularly lectures on these topics both nationally and internationally.

Shanon has been the lead author of National (FGDP, Royal College of Surgeons) and European (ESE) guidelines on dental imaging in Endodontics.

In addition, he has published over 70 papers in peer reviewed scientific journals and co-edited four textbooks; Principles of Endodontics is now in its second edition, and is a very popular undergraduate endodontic textbook, Pitt Ford’s Problem Based Learning in Endodontics was one of the first PBL textbooks in our specialty. Cone Beam CT in Endodontics is now recognized as the reference guide for small field, high resolution CBCT in Endodontics. These books have been translated into five different languages.
