Vipul qualified from the University of Bristol in 2000 and spent his early years in NHS general dental practice. Continually wanting to update his skills and knowledge, he first completed his 3-year Diploma in Postgraduate Dental Studies (DPDS). Vipul transferred to the Membership of the College of General Dentistry following completion of a Diploma in 2007 for the (now historic) Membership of the Faculty of General Dental Practitioners and in June 2024 Vipul was formally admitted to the College as a Fellow (FCGDent). Vipul also spent a year completing the Postgraduate Certificate in Restorative Dental Practice at UCL (Eastman) in 2007. The Endodontic component of this certificate course further ignited his interest in Endodontics and led him to his Master of Science Degree in Endodontics, which was awarded in 2010 following completion at the world renowned UCL Eastman Dental Hospital. Since 2008, Vipul has limited his practice to Endodontics, accepting referrals from colleagues from all over the South East of England, including his previous appointment in Harley Street. Vipul has been a registered Specialist in Endodontics with the General Dental Council since December 2015.

Vipul is also a Clinical Teacher and Lecturer. From 2011 - present he has taught on the endodontic component of the Postgraduate Certificate in Restorative Dental Practice (the same course he completed himself in 2007). From March 2013 to June 2016, he taught the 5th year undergraduate students at King's College London on a weekly basis. In November 2013, Vipul completed the Train the Trainer course in Geneva, Switzerland, enabling him to work alongside Dentsply Sirona in organising courses for postgraduate education. From July 2014 - present, he provides face-to-face teaching to national and international postgraduates participating in the Distance Learning Master’s (MClinDent in Fixed and Removable Prosthodontics) based at King’s College London, teaching the endodontic elements of the course. Vipul has also taught dentists via Health Education England in Brigg, Doncaster and Sheffield, and has written his own Modern Endodontics course (a 2-day short course) which he runs on an intermittent and annual basis at UCL.

From May 2015 to May 2021, he was a committee member of The Langham Endodontic Study Club which aims to meet the continuing educational needs in the field of endodontology of postgraduates with MSc/MClinDent in endodontics and practitioners limited to endodontics and served as its Senior Executive Officer from May 2019 to May 2020.

In June 2024 Vipul was formally admitted as a fellow to the International College of General Dentists during an induction ceremony that took place in Limassol, Cyprus.

Vipul currently works as an associate in Dorking, Caterham and Tower Hill.
