Shak was born and brought up in the beautiful valley of Kashmir.  In 1988, he commenced his studies in dentistry and qualified in 1992 as a dentist from the University of Mysore, India and moved to the United Kingdom in 1994.  He attained a Master’s degree in Restorative Dentistry from the Queen’s University of Belfast in 1995 and continued to work there till 1997.  While undertaking further basic training in Restorative Dentistry at Morriston hospital, Swansea, he completed his Fellowship in Dental Surgery (FDS RCSEd) from the Royal College of Surgeons of Edinburgh in 1998. He moved to Dubai in 1999 and worked as Restorative and General Dentist for Emirates Airlines. In August 2000, he however, decided to return to the UK and commenced his Specialist Registrar training in Restorative Dentistry at the Newcastle Dental Hospital.  He attained his Fellowship in Restorative Dentistry FDS(Rest Dent)RCSEd in November 2004 and completed his specialist training in April 2005. During this period he also completed a 4-year part time research degree and successfully submitted his thesis for attainment of Doctor of Dental Surgery (DDS) from Newcastle University.
In 2005, he was appointed as a Consultant at The Royal London Dental Hospital, part of Barts and The London NHS Trust, and subsequently appointed as Honorary Senior Clinical Lecturer at Queen Mary University, Barts and The London School of Medicine and Dentistry.
Shak is a specialist in Restorative Dentistry, Periodontics, Prosthodontics and Endodontics.  
Apart from the specialist restorative treatment, his areas of particular interest include aesthetic implant dentistry, and management of complex restorative cases including functional and aesthetic rehabilitation of patients with hypodontia.
He is the Lead for postgraduate implant training at The Royal London Dental Hospital and the Barts and The London School of Medicine and Dentistry.  
He is the Chairman for the Advisory Board in Implant Dentistry for the Royal College of Surgeons of Edinburgh, a Fellow of the International Team for Implantology and a Diplomate of The British Society of Oral Implantology.  He is also the current Chairman of the ITI UK & Ireland Section.
He also runs a multi-specialist referral practice in the West End of London.
