Dr. Ali is a wonderful and respectful person, aside from being a top-notch dentist. Dr. Ali makes you feel comfortable and wants you to speak up if you're uncomfortable with anything at all. It doesn't bother him to pause and to help fix/alleviate whatever problem you have while he's working on you.
He makes sure that you have all of the info that you need and makes sure that you understand the treatment that you're going to receive.
I have also requested to see him for a short notice visit due to pain from a tooth abscess (which needed a root canal). He met with me and we talked about the best way to tackle and alleviate this problem. As I was following the advice from my previous dentist, he assured me that the info that I received was not the best, and apologized for the confusion and misinformation. Not his fault, I understood and accepted. I hated to meet with him as it looked like he was in the middle of his dinner, but he did not rush me at all and made sure I knew the new plan of action. Talk about putting the patient needs first!
After the root canal was done (which was an easy procedure), I also opted to take out 2 impacted wisdom teeth on the bottom. Again, although I don't get anxious or nervous when seeing the dentist, he made sure that I was comfortable throughout the whole procedure.
Another thing that I noted was that he helps teach his Dental Hygienists. Again, paying it forward for the future of dentistry.
Dr. Ali is an excellent dentist and I will continue to see him for future appointments.
