The Team

Dr. Ali Shakoori

Dr Ali joined the Frenchs Forest Dental team in 2016. With 15+ years of clinical experience and having worked in dentistry across many parts of Australia, he has now settled permanently here in the beautiful northern beaches.

Dentistry is not just work for Dr Ali but also his passion. Dentistry combines two of his most favourite interests; human biology and basic principles of civil engineering (at a micro level). His approach with patients is to discuss all the possible treatment options and help prioritise a treatment plan to reach their oral health goals. Dr Ali dedicated a large part of his career in training and developing expertise in several specialised areas of dentistry including dental implants, smile design and cosmetic dentistry.
