Rangika Weerakoon

rangika

Rangika first began studying Dentistry at University of Peradeniya, Sri- Lanka and started life as a dentist there. Soon after, she travelled all the way to the UK for her postgraduate studies in 2000, whilst also working as a senior house officer in Lincoln, Middlesbrough and Worcester Hospitals. During that period of time in her life, Rangika achieved the fellowship from the Royal College of Surgeons of England in oral surgery.

In 2006, Rangika started working for the Lincolnshire community service and dedicated time as an emergency community dentist and around this time she received her postgraduate studies certificate in dental sedation from the University of London in 2009. Since then Rangika has treated many anxious and often afraid dental patients through sedation to build their confidence and make them feel comfortable in the environment of a dental surgery which in turn she too finds rewarding to see.

Rangika carried on to work in Horncastle as a general dental practitioner until recently, where she took the leap to join our team at Dee Kay Dental. In her own words she says she has thoroughly enjoyed her time here working with an excellent team of equally compassionate and hard working co-workers. Alongside working at Dee Kay Dental, Rangika has also been contributing to Lincoln County hospital, once a week, as a staff surgeon in oral and maxillofacial surgery since 2007, to gain as much experience as possible.

Her utmost passion lies with oral surgery yet she has always enjoyed all aspects of dentistry as she loves that it lets her provide the best quality of care to her dental patients in every way. To gain more knowledge and interest in all new developments in dentistry, Rangika regularly attends courses available so she can grow to the highest of heights in her profession.

Outside of professional life, Rangika mostly spends time with her family and loved ones as her support system. She stays in touch with nature by exploring the UK’s peaceful countryside especially in a technologically thriving society. Her lifelong dream is to travel and experience the rest of the world; in the past Rangika has travelled to several diverse countries but knows there are so many more places still waiting to be discovered.
