Dr Prasad says he has applied through proper channels, but council says otherwise.

A Suva dentist operating from his clinic has challenged the Fiji Dental Council to close down his operations.

Dr Vikash Singh of Stewart Street Dental Practice in Suva was responding to the Fiji Medical and Dental Council registrar and chief executive, Dharmesh Prasad, who has confirmed to Fiji Sun that Dr Singh was operating without any licence.

However, this matter was being dealt with by the Council chairperson, Phillip Davies.

Mr Davies is currently out of the country and could not be reached for comment.

Dr Prasad said he had made an application to obtain his practicing licence according to the right procedure, however there was no response to this.

“I am the president of the Fiji Dental Association and I have practiced dentistry for the past 25 years. If the council wants to stop me then they should come and do so,” Dr Singh said.

“The Dental Council must have a representative from the association however, they do not. Instead they have some outsider who has no business in the dental field.”

Dr Singh said he would continue to operate his clinic until the Council came and closed his operation.

“I have my indemnity insurance and I have applied for a licence through the proper channel but there has not been any response,” he said.
