He completed his undergraduate program in Dentistry from Bapuji Dental College, Davangere and Masters in Orthodontics in 1987 from KMC, Manipal. Currently,he is pursuing a PhD in “Smile Dynamics”at Radboud University, Netherlands. His area of expertise in Orthodontics is aesthetics of human faces and correction of dentofacial anomalies and smile dynamics.

With teaching experience of over 27 years, he has trained and mentored more than 80 post graduate students in Orthodontics and thousands of undergraduates in Dentistry. An avid preceptor and researcher, he has about 44 scientific papers published in reputed national and international journals and has 30 research projects to his credit. He holds 4 patents in the field of Orthodontics.

Apart from being an educationist and researcher, he is also a passionate artist and photographer. His art has received several national and international recognitions including USA, Japan, Germany and United Kingdom. He is an Associate of the Royal Photographic Society, U.K.

Akhter works on various themes in photography, graphic art as well as traditional mediums. His passion always has been art in its multi faceted forms particularly the visual art, a synergy of aesthetics and creative imagination. He tries to look at the unperceived and un-elucidated mysteries and intricacies of nature and bring it into the digital canvas through photography.

He has traveled extensively all over the world. This experience has exposed and inspired him to experiment with various art forms. His prime interest is contemporary art but his latest passion is medical art and imaging.
