We are thrilled to introduce the latest addition to our esteemed team at London Dental Arts, Dr. Ali Hilmi. As the CEO and Owner of London Dental Arts, I am delighted to share with you the impressive background and qualifications of Dr. Ali Hilmi, our new Root Canal Specialist, and how he embodies our commitment to excellence in patient care and clinical expertise.
Dr. Ali Hilmi is not just a dentist; he is an enthusiastic and conscientious practitioner who is deeply committed to holistic patient-centered care, clinical excellence, and evidence-based practice. His journey in dentistry began at King’s College London Dental Institute, where he completed his undergraduate training in 2008. Alongside his dental studies, Ali also pursued further education and research in neurological diseases, earning a BSc in Neuroscience—a testament to his dedication to expanding his knowledge beyond the conventional scope of dentistry.
After graduating from Dental School, Ali embarked on his career with Dental Foundation Training at the prestigious London Deanery. He gained valuable experience as an NHS dentist, serving patients in both General Practice and at Guy’s Dental Hospital, further enhancing his clinical acumen.
One of Ali’s passions lies in education, and he has pursued this ardor vigorously. He undertook additional training in clinical teaching, earning certificates in Mentoring and Dental Education from the University of Bedfordshire. His dedication to teaching led him to become a clinical teacher at Guy’s Dental Hospital and a postgraduate Educational Supervisor for the London Deanery—a testament to his commitment to shaping the next generation of dentists through mentorship and guidance.
Clinically, Ali has demonstrated his commitment to excellence by completing training in Advanced Endodontics and Advanced Restorative Dentistry with the Aspire Dental Academy. He went on to pass the examinations for Membership of the Joint Dental Faculties (MJDF) of the Royal College of Surgeons (England), showcasing his clinical prowess.
In 2018, Ali’s journey took him to the specialist training programme in Endodontology at King’s College London. Throughout his specialist training, he excelled, earning accolades such as the title of King’s College London Endodontic Student Representative and Postgraduate Endodontic Representative of the Specialist Training Committee for London. In 2022, he proudly completed his specialist training with distinction, receiving an MClinDent. Subsequently, Ali continued his training and earned the highest clinical qualification in Endodontics, the MEndo from the Royal College of Surgeons.
Beyond his impressive clinical achievements, Ali has a deep-rooted interest in clinical academia. His research contributions have been published in leading endodontic peer-reviewed literature, and he has played a role in shaping the content of various Endodontic textbooks.
Ali’s clinical expertise encompasses both surgical and non-surgical treatment of complex endodontic cases. His extensive research in this field has given him a special affinity for the use of 3D-imaging and the management of compromised teeth. Ali’s patient-centric approach ensures that individuals are fully informed throughout their treatment journey, empowering them to make choices aligned with their values, preferences, and best interests.
Beyond the dental realm, Ali is a devoted father and husband, embodying the importance of work-life balance. He finds joy in activities such as climbing, weight-lifting, and reading—a testament to his well-rounded and adventurous spirit.
We are thrilled to welcome Dr. Ali Hilmi to the London Dental Arts family, and we are confident that his expertise and commitment to patient care will be an invaluable asset to our clinic and, most importantly, to you, our valued patients.
