Harley Street dentist says he ‘didn’t plan to have sex with patient at Savoy hotel’

A Harley Street dentist to the stars who slept with a patient after wining and dining her at the Savoy said he only had a condom with him to carry water in an emergency.

Dr Sahil Patel, 28, said he had the contraceptive in his bag ‘for several years’ after attending a survival course.

The dentist twice met up with the woman at a pub in north London after providing her with his mobile phone number.

He then took the patient out to dinner at the Savoy on November 1 last year after completing her veneer treatment.

They carried on drinking until after midnight, when the dentist said he could not get home ‘as there are no underground trains,’ the General Dental Council heard.

Dr Patel then went to the patient’s hotel room across the street and had sex with her, the tribunal heard.

The dentist is said to have referred to the woman a ‘Jewish princess’ but he denies using the phrase.

The disciplinary hearing is being held in Marylebone, central London, near The Harley Street Smile Clinic, where Dr Patel is an associate dentist.

The clinic lists former Everton and Scotland striker Andy Gray among its clients as well as TOWIE stars including Lauren Pope, James Lock, Frankie Essex and Kirk Norcross.

Giving evidence, Dr Patel admitted if the condom ‘was present without context then, yes it would show pre-planning’.

But he maintained he kept it ‘in a field craft kit which has been in my bag for several years, incidentally, since attending a training course. It’s used for water retention’.

He claimed ‘Patient A’ asked him to have sex a second time at the hotel.

In his witness statement, he said he turned her down because he was tired, and added today, ‘We couldn’t anyway, due to a lack of contraception’.

Dr Patel is said to have passed her his mobile number on September 27 last year and gone for a drink with her at the White Horse Pub in Parsons Green, south-west London.

He had taken her for dinner at the five-star Savoy after completing her veneer treatment in November last year.

They carried on drinking until after midnight, when the dentist said he couldn’t get home ‘as there are no underground trains,’ the General Dental Council (GDC) heard.

Dr Patel went to the patient’s hotel room across the street and had sex with her, the tribunal heard.

He is said to have referred to her as a ‘Jewish princess’, but he denies using the phrase.

SAVOY DATE

Dr Patel is an associate dentist at The Harley Street Smile Clinic, which lists TOWIE stars Lauren Pope, James Lock, Frankie Essex and Kirk Norcross among its clients.

The clinic’s website said Dr Patel had created “the smiles of several reality TV personalities, Members of Parliament, professional athletes, and social media influencers”.

Dr Patel emailed ‘patient A’ his mobile number on September 27 last year and they went for a drink.

He met her again on October 3 and kissed her and the Savoy date was arranged, it is claimed.

Sam Thomas, for the GDC, said: “She had travelled from the south coast where she lived to London to make an appointment with the registrant on 1 November.

“This was the third of three appointments in order to have veneers placed on her teeth.

“The appointment on 1 November finished at approximately 3pm and at 7.15pm on that same day the registrant and patient A met at the Savoy Hotel.

“They are at the restaurant and they moved to an adjacent bar where they drank until after midnight.

“The pair then went across the road to a hotel opposite the Savoy and had sexual intercourse.”

The misconduct panel heard the dentist’s lawyer has raised the issue as to whether patient A was a current patient of Dr Patel.

The pair then went across the road to a hotel opposite the Savoy and had sexual intercourse.

Mr Thomas added: “The council say that patient A was due to be seen in 12 months time following the third of the three appointments.

“So we accept that on 1 November 2019 the treatment had finished but there was due to be a review in November 2020.

“Further the council say that there was a five-year guarantee with regard to
