Dr. Ahmed Tadfi – Aesthetic Dentist at Fulham Road Dental
Ahmed joined our Fulham dental practice in early 2021 as an aesthetic dentist. After completing a Bachelor of Science degree in Biomedical Sciences, Ahmed went on to graduate in dentistry from the University of Birmingham School of Dentistry in 2014 where he received several awards for his endodontic and restorative work. Ahmed has specific interests in Endodontics, Aesthetics and Restorative dentistry.
Ahmed describes himself as a motivated and ambitious clinician that enjoys working as part of a team. Ahmed specifically has a keen interest in promoting good oral hygiene. His interest in this area was the motivation for him to create and publish an oral hygiene instruction leaflet for the Birmingham Dental Hospital NHS community trust. This was overseen by Professor Iain Chapple. His attention to detail, natural talent and beautiful photography have earned him international recognition within the high-end cosmetic dentistry circles, and he has been recognised as a talented clinician, earning him positions as a key opinion leader for a number of major dental companies. He is also now involved in teaching and mentoring both undergraduate and postgraduate dentists nationally and internationally.
In 2018, Ahmed was awarded the best young dentist UK at the dentistry awards and has followed on to be invited to become a silver member of the world-renowned dental education platform Styleitaliano. He is only the second dentist from the UK to receive this membership.
