Default Dr Indika Weerapperuma

To The STC Freshmen of '59,

Today I would like to introduce a new concept.
Profiles of our children. What great pride and joy, when our children are qualified and doing well in life.
Indika's ( Dr Indika Weerapperuma) profile is given below. He was my son Dhanusha's class mate at college. Father is Dr Kamal Weerapperuma two years senior to me at STC. First met him at Vajirarama Dhaham Pasala in 1964 and continued our friendship to date.

If you feel this is a good idea, please send me your sons profile to be uploaded in our web site. I am sure this will help old friends to re establish links again.

I sincerely wish to thank Kamal for giving permission to implement my project and trust several fathers will join.

Indika, wish you good luck in all your en devours.

With best regards


Dr Indika Weerapperuma


Dental Surgeon

Honorary Clinical Teaching Fellow University of Manchester Dental School

Indika, is a second generation Thomian, who after 14 years of training and work experience as a dental surgeon in the UK, returned to Sri Lanka to set up a modern dental practice in Colombo. He continues to function as an Honorary Clinical Teaching Fellow of the University of Manchester UK. With his skill and knowledge Indika is able to offer advanced and quality dental care to his patients at his practice (www.kinrossdentalcare.com)in Bambalapitiya.

Following his secondary education, he proceeded to the University of Bristol to study his chosen profession of dentistry. Upon graduation Indika worked in Scotland for two years. During this time, he successfully obtained membership of the Dental Faculty of the Royal College of Surgeons in Edinburgh.

Indika worked in both the National Health Service and private practices in the UK. He was offered a position at a Specialist Dental Practice in Manchester where he worked until he left the UK. He carried out complex restorative treatments and under took referrals from other dentists.

He completed his Masters in Fixed and Removable Prosthodontics (a sub speciality within dentistry) at the University of Manchester. In addition, he also obtained a post graduate qualification in Endodontics and had undergone specific training in Dental implants and advanced aesthetic dentistry. Soon after, Indika joined the faculty at the University of Manchester Dental School and was involved in teaching postgraduate students. He has been a guest lecturer at various conferences and dental meetings in both the UK and Sri Lanka.

In 2017 Indika moved back to Sri Lanka. Among other reasons he was of the view that his expertise and experience would benefit the local community and he could be of service to them. The University of Manchester still continued to retain his services and appointed him an Honorary Clinical Teaching Fellow and Unit Lead on the Restorative and Aesthetic Masterís degree program. This allows Indika to maintain his link with the University of Manchester Dental School and he visits the UK to teach as required. Indika aims to deliver the same high-quality care to all his patients in Sri Lanka and has set up his practice to a high standard.

Indika studied at S.Thomasí College, the school his father Dr Kamal Weerapperuma (from 1961-1968) attended. As a student at S. Thomasí College Indika proved to be an all-rounder. He played hockey as a primary sport and excelled as one of the few dayís scholars to play the game, which was dominated by the boarders. Indika was part of a team that did well in both district and national levels by winning the various championships. He was part of the college hockey touring team to Malaysia in 1998 and Sydney in 2000. Scouting was another activity Indika participated in with great enthusiasm. He achieved the highest level in scouting and was made a Presidents Scout in 2001. Indika is a founder member of the Old Thomian Healthcare Professionals Association.

It is a great asset to have Indika back in Sri Lanka to help serve the community with his expertise and modern approach to dentistry
