In Memorium

“We would like to acknowledge Dr. Nasedkin who was an integral part of the Occlusal Rehabilitation Centre for 7 years. He helped develop the clinic and treatment protocols. Dr. Nasedkin guided and mentored both myself, the team and our patients to help us realise our true abilities. He is sorely missed. We would like to ensure that all of what he imparted lives on at The Occlusal Rehabilitation Centre.”
—Dr. Abbas Tejani
