About the speaker

Jalpesh Patel

Jalpesh Patel

Founder of RASA Academy, Facial Aesthetic Practitioner, Dental Surgeon

Jalpesh Patel completed his undergraduate training at King’s College London in 2010, graduating with Honours. He is an aesthetic and dental practitioner, a member of the Joint Dental Faculties at the Royal College of Surgeons and has completed a Postgraduate Certificate in Skin Aging and Aesthetic Medicine at the University of Manchester. This is after having already successfully completed a Masters in Aesthetic Dentistry, at King’s College London, graduating with Distinction.

As a member of the Practitioner Register Committee of the Joint Council of Cosmetic Practitioners (JCCP), Jalpesh has a strong commitment to improving the regulation and learning pathways within the facial aesthetic industry. Having felt that there has been a lack of formal guidelines and educational structure for those wanting to enter and practice in this field, he founded the RASA Academy and the development of the Postgraduate Certificate in Non-Surgical Facial Aesthetics alongside the College of General Dentistry.
