Professor Shanon Patel
Professor of Endodontology, King’s College London 
Consultant Endodontist (Guy’s Hospital) & Specialist Practice (London W1)

Shanon divides his time between working in a specialist practice in central London and teaching future Specialist Endodontists in the Postgraduate Unit at King's College London Dental Institute. He is also a consultant at Guy’s hospital NHS trust.
Shanon is actively involved in research and has co-supervised over 50 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.
He has published over 100 papers in peer reviewed scientific journals and co-edited four endodontic and radiology textbooks which have been translated into five different languages.
The impact of his research and clinical excellence has resulted in Shanon being invited as a keynote speaker at over 80 international meetings spanning 5 continents.
Shanon is recognised internationally for his research on root resorption and 3D Cone Beam Computed Tomography (CBCT) imaging in Endodontics. This is reflected in him being lead author of 3 European Society of Endodontology position statements (CBCT 2014, 2019 & External Cervical Resorption 2018) which are used by dentists in Europe and beyond for guidance on the managing complex root canal problems.
