DR. Ali Tavakoli D.D.S.

Dr. Ali received his first Doctor of Dental Surgery (D.D.S.) degree in Tehran, Iran, Shahid Beheshti University in 2000. He started practicing dentistry since then for ten years before he immigrated to Canada and received his second Doctor of Dental Surgery (D.D.S.) degree from the University of Toronto in 2014.  

After completing his DDS at the University of Toronto, he practiced as an associate dentist in several locations in the Greater Toronto Area before opening 123 Dental in 2016, where he is the Principal Dentist.

Through all these years of practice, Dr. Ali has been able to find a loyal following of patients who appreciate the efficient care, calm and comforting demeanour — and a decent sense of humour he provides.


Dr. Ali's Dental Office

Dr. Ali’s Dental office can be a haven for those who like to read, listen to music, relax and enjoy the time. He has gathered a library for patients to borrow books, a piano to play, aquarium to enjoy the calmness of fish and a comfortable waiting area to feel like home.

Dr. Ali's approach to dentistry is conservative. He avoids over-treating patients and believes in preventive dentistry.

While well experienced and open to all sorts of dental procedures including complex cases, his strong suits are

-          Root canal Therapy, being completed in one hour-one session time frames with the highest technologies invented.

-          Dental Implants.

-          Cosmetic dentistry, crowns, veneers, smile makeovers.


Dr. Ali is currently a clinical instructor at the Faculty of Dentistry, the University of Toronto where he can share his years of experience and knowledge with the dental students and give back to society while being in constant contact with the academic findings and staying tuned.

 He is also a member of the Royal College of Surgeon Dentist of Canada (RCDSO) and Ontario Dental Association (ODA) and an active member of the Iranian Ontario Dental Association (IODA).

In his spare time, Dr. Ali enjoys reading books, listening to classic and influential music, watching movies, participating in cultural events, concerts, plays and festivals. He also loves travelling and world-seeing.

Dr. Ali is fond of literature and arts, psychology and philosophy concepts. He is a family man who spends time with his children and wife. He believes weekends should be completely dedicated to family activities and that’s why he refuses to work on weekends. Instead, he takes his family to Ping pong club and movie theatre or other cultural events.
