Jag has obtained a Medical Research Council funded intercalating degree (Bachelor of Science) and is both medically and dentally qualified. He has completed his dental vocational training and has worked as a Senior House Officer in Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery in both Bristol and London. He then went on to complete his Basic Surgical Training in General Surgery, Colorectal Surgery, Accident and Emergency and Urology in East London followed by his Higher Surgical Training in Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery in the West Midland rotation. He has dual membership of the Royal College of Surgeons of England (MFDSRCS, MRCS and FRCS) and has also completed a PhD in Oncogenomics, Transcriptomics, Tumour Models and Biomarkers at the Head and Neck Research Unit in Liverpool.

Jag is the only UK surgeon to have obtained the college (Royal College of Surgeons of England Research Fellowship), specialty (British Association of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeons/Facial Surgery Foundation-Saving Faces Research Fellowship) and faculty (Faculty of Dental Surgery, Royal College of Surgeons of England Research Fellowship) fellowships. He also completed an Interface Fellowship in Head and Neck Surgical Oncology at Queen Victoria Hospital, East Grinstead and has an interest in Microvascular Reconstruction with Perforator Free Flaps. He has also recently completed the National Cancer Research Institute Head and Neck Clinical Studies Group Clinical Trials Fellowship.

Jag set up the first Maxillofacial National Trainee Collaborative Project recruiting 6200 patients for a study on standards of consent for surgical procedures and he is a first author published in several book and journals including British Journal of Cancer, Head and Neck and the British Journal of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery.  Jag is now a Consultant Maxillofacial/Head and Neck Surgeon at Queen Victoria Hospital, East Grinstead.

He is conducting research using iKnife technology at Imperial College London where he is an Honorary Senior Lecturer. He recently obtained the Presidents Prize (2017) for his presentation titled ‘iKnife Rapid Evaporative Ionisation Mass Spectrometry (REIMS) Technology in Head and Neck Surgery. A Ex Vivo Feasibility Study.’ This technology allows real time detection of cancer tissue by analysing the smoke generated for surgical cutting instruments such as laser and cutting diathermy. He hopes to develop this technology in a clinical trial using Robotics and Transoral Laser Techniques in Head and Neck cancer ablation.

He started his dental implant training in 2002 with short courses and has subsequently had further exposure to surgical aspects of implant dentistry during his Higher Surgical Training and is competent to place both intraoral and facial extraoral implants. He works at one of the largest practices in the UK with more than 40 dentists exclusively referring all their implant work to him and he has placed more the 3500 implants.

Jag has been a tutor at Dentale for 6 months and joined primarily because of the hands-on course design for assessing surgical competency in Implant Dentistry.
