Following a year of foundation training in Hampshire and a rotation in the Community Dental Service at St Davids Hospital in Cardiff, she began her career in oral surgery. This started with a post as a Senior House Officer in oral surgery within the Cwm Taf University Health Board where she worked at Prince Charles Hospital in Merthyr Tydfil and the Royal Glamorgan Hospital in Llantrisant. She then became a specialty doctor in oral surgery in these departments where she remains today attaining her Membership of Faculty Dental Surgeons of England in 2008 along the way.
As well as her hospital commitments, Anjani also provides oral surgery services in primary care for Abertawe Bro Morgannwg, Cwm Taff University and Aneurin Bevan Healthboards at clinics in Swansea, Porth and Blackwood helping to provide comprehensive oral surgery services across South Wales in both general practice and hospital settings.

I would like to tell you and your team how pleased I am with my new crowns and veneer. I am sorry that I waited so long to pluck up the courage to have them replaced. From the first appointment to the last one I felt very comfortable with you. I am really pleased with the final result and would like to thank you very much it wasn't as painful as I thought it would be.JR, had anterior aesthetic crowns and veneer
When first put forward, the notion of having an implant, I was reluctant as there were no decent alternatives and the best solution to the problem that I had. Dr Holmes and his staff were excellent and we spent some time going through the treatments. Now, some months later, the implant feels as if it’s been part of my mouth. It is so comfortable. It’s part of me. Thank you.JP, had implants
I had lost a few back teeth over the last few years and I’ve been aware and very conscious of the gaps. I had a plate put in place but it proved to be uncomfortable and cumbersome in the mouth.
Over the last year, I’ve undergone treatment for 2 implants which are now complete. I have had an amazing experience. I’ve been looked after well by Barry and all the staff involved in the process. Just having my new teeth is fantastic. This will give me new confidence and fabulous new smile. Thank you.SD, had implants
