Known as Dr Vijay (for obvious reasons!).
I am the founder and CEO of Evo.
Evo was a concept that started with me 20 years ago.
As a practicing general dentist just flirting with the use of dental implants, I found that dental implant science was an excellent addition to dentistry for patients but had a lot of scope for improvements with the inclusion of up and coming modern technology in both design and engineering. This for me was an opportunity to investigate improved clinical strategies, the ability to streamline surgical interventions for patients and ultimately improve patient outcomes particularly for those needing full tooth replacement with dental implants and prosthetics.
Indeed the initial use for modern dental implants was pioneered by an orthopaedic surgeon from Sweden, Professor Branemark and his sole focus was the rehabilitation of people missing all their teeth not just 1 or 2. This is Evo’s mission too.
Evo (short for Evolution) is a methodology in how to think not what to think.
Every patient’s needs is unique and hence one size does NOT fit all. As such only the ‘how to think’ methodology will work. There are no recipes because no two patient outcomes are the same.
Bespoke planning, design and execution with a collaborative approach involving clinicians, technicians, CAD designers and manufacturing engineers all under one roof, has allowed me to establish the concept of Evo Team. Every patient treated at Evo benefits from having multiple clinicians, technicians, CAD designers and engineers oversee and contribute to their outcome. After all 6 minds are better than 1! This was how I envisioned Evo to work 20 years ago and I am glad to say today it is a reality.
Today I am very lucky to work with an incredibly talented group of dynamic caring individuals who enable me to fulfil my dream of bringing the highest standard of clinical correction for those suffering with the biggest problems in dentistry, namely no teeth, a solution that is predictable and accessible by far more people than was previously possible.
Today the Evo Solution™ is exclusively for everyone
