Dr Alif Moosajee is the principal dentist at Oakdale Dental and is also the author of the book ‘The Smiling Dentist’- a jargon-free book about clinical dentistry which was written to provide patients with the information they need to help keep their teeth healthy and also provide them with information to allow them to make better choices about the treatment they have.
Alif really loves dentistry, he has a passion for it and often says that if it wasn’t his job it would be his hobby! He has a particular interest in replacing missing teeth with dental implants and restoring broken down teeth using CEREC to provide crowns to patients in a single visit. Alif loves to do treatment that provides patients with the best outcomes and feels that dental implants and CEREC restorations give him the tools that enable him to provide restorations that most closely mimic natural teeth.
Alif spends much of his time dedicated to providing clinical care for his patients and running Oakdale Dental. He also makes appearances on BBC TV and Radio and on Channel 5 commenting on topical dental issues. He also continues to put pen to paper sitting on the editorial board of two prestigious dental publications.
Alif was awarded overall Best Young Dentist UK at the Dentistry Awards 2016 and was winner of Fast Track Four 2016.
Alif is committed to improving patient care whether it be the patients he sees or by helping to educate other dentists so that they can improve standards of their own clinical care. Alif has set up and is the director of two study clubs at Oakdale Dental. Both of which invite other dentists to come and learn and also contribute, again to improve standards of care for all. Alif is a keen advocate for mentoring, especially in the fields of implant and digital dentistry, because he feels that mentoring helps dentists to become better, quicker. Especially with the more advanced aspects of dental treatment.
Away from the practice he is a devoted father and husband and adores spending time with his wife and daughter playing and generally goofing around.
Core to Alif’s belief is that the patient should always come first. That is why he would be delighted to welcome you to Oakdale Dental so that he and his fantastic team can provide for you the best standard of care possible, and hopefully give you many reasons to smile.
