Biography

Hi, I am Dr. Ali, and I have been practicing dentistry since the year 2000. In that time, I have been able to find a loyal following of patients who appreciate the efficient care, calm and comforting demeanor — and a decent sense of humor I have been able to provide them over the last couple of years! After completing my Dental Degree Program at the University of Toronto, I practiced as an associate dentist in several locations in the Greater Toronto Area before opening 123 Dental in 2016, where I am the Principal Dentist. I welcome patients of all ages to the clinic. I love teaching children how to take care of their teeth and about the importance of good oral hygiene, and I try makes a point to educate all my patients about the best ways to maintain optimal oral health. I have experience dealing with many complex dental procedures and have a special interest in Endodontics, Cosmetic and Implant Dentistry, and smile makeover procedures.

  • Great dental office.
    Reviewed on July 20th, 2017  •  Verified patient
    Awesome! Visited his office because of sensitivity with back tooth. They completed an x ray and found two cavities. Got them fixed and had teeth cleaned. Dentist was very nice to have polished my teeth without extra fees because my insurance didn't cover polishing. Insurance covered the $950 bill and they made sure to see that I had full coverage first before proceeding. Great service. X ray was uncomfortable because my mouth is small. Liked them and will go back.

    the team was very kind and patient with my anxiety, and Dr, Tavakoli was very patient to my stress. kept me calm and was very communicative when it came to what he was doing and was good with keeping discomfort to a minimum. probably one of the best freezing experiences I've ever had (i didn't have a slouchy face all day) and his team is very nice.

    From the moment I first came in I felt very accomodated. Dr Tavakoli is a warm and welcoming character with a great sense of humour. The cleaning itself was speedy yet thorough, and overall a comfortable experience. Would certainly visit again.

    Reviewed on March 23rd, 2017  •  Verified patient
    I had very pleasant experience coming to this office for the first time. I did not have to wait and the office staff was very organized. Dr. Tavakoli x-rayed my entire mouth and clearly explained the results. I was having some on and off again toothache pain; Dr. Tavakoli explained the problem was likely due to a wisdom tooth. The extraction procedure was explained thoroughly and done that same day. I also had my teeth cleaned and everything was done very smoothly and without issue. I will be coming to this dentist for all my future dental needs and I definitely recommend this dentist to others.

  • Excellent Dentist
    Reviewed on March 13th, 2017  •  Verified patient
    I am one of those people who can't get used to the sound of a tooth being drilled. However, once I entered Dr. Tavakoli's very nice office, I immediately felt calm. His office is huge and very nicely designed. It made me felt as if I have entered a quiet hotel lobby. The staff was exceptionally friendly and everyone said hello. When Dr. Tavakoli walked in, I knew immediately that I would be very well taken care of. He is a very cheerful and super friendly person and that really relaxed me a lot. My treatment went very well. I would strongly recommend him to anyone who is looking for a dentist.

    Quick, efficient and great quality. Dr. Tavakoli x-rayed my entire mouth and clearly explained the results. Had a chipped filling which he expertly replaced so that you couldn't feel /see any difference from the rest of the teeth. Definitely recommend.

  • It's been a long time - but I'm going back!
    Reviewed on January 6th, 2017
    I had a traumatizing experience with an exposed nerve as a kid, and it made me A) Take really good care of my teeth, and B) Refuse to go back to see a dentist. It's been longer than I'm proud of. But then I chipped a sliver off of my tooth and didn't want it to get worse. Everyone in the office is incredible, it feels like sitting in a friend's living room. Dr. Tavakoli was funny, didn't pressure me at all - he asked, "So what shall we do? We can just have this conversation, or we can fix this..." He let me feel the various tools on my fingernails and was very patient with a very nervous me. The chip is now fixed (it was fast, and looks perfect), and I got to enjoy a beautiful view as I quietly controlled my panic (check out the huge photograph of a treetop bridge). I'm going back next week.

    Dr. Tavakoli is very professional, passionate, and caring. The experience was warm, quick, and overall amazing. Dr. Tavakoli is extremely knowledgeable and patient-centered. I went for a cleaning/check-up but Dr. Tavakoli found a couple of cavities which were missed by my previous dentists, and fixed them up. Would definitely recommend to others!

    From the front desk staffs to Dr. Tavakoli, everything was just outstanding. I had a very pleasant experience there. When it comes to dental work, usually I am always hesitant. However, I got three restorations, clean up, and polishing not only without any problem. Last but not least, if you ever decided to give him a visit (which you must), ask Dr. Tavakoli to sing for you, he got a great voice ;)

  • The best dentist that I have ever seen
    Reviewed on December 9th, 2016  •  Verified patient
    I had a problem with my filling from two previous dentists, but they got empty after, a while. As he saw my tooth, he got the solution. In addition he and all the staff were so friendly, and I really liked the atmosphere. In addition he is so generous man. He neglected some of the expenses as I am a student and it was a great deal for me. I really recommend him.

    I had a great experience visiting Dr Tavakoli office. Great environment, nicely welcomed and professionally treated. Dr Tavakoli made a full oral exam to make sure there are no major issues and explained my oral status clearly and in layman's terms to me. I was also gifted an electronic tooth brush. My overall experience was: I felt myself at home. Everywhere clean and new. dental equipment seemed to be replace right I stepped in...
