She was appointed as a consultant in special care dentistry (SCD) at UCLH in 2007 and has since been actively expanding the service to build a unit that is known for excellence and commitment to training and development.

Dr. Kumar has considerable expertise in the clinical management of the medically compromised patient and the management of the oral complications of systemic diseases.

She is actively involved in the promotion of SCD and the development of national and international oral care guidelines and protocols, including those focused on patients with cancer, thalassaemia, sickle cell disease, renal disease/transplantation and dementia.
