What our previous FDs say about their experience with Alpha Dental Group….

“I have been fortunate to begin my career in Alpha Dental Studio under the guidance of Dr. Neeraj Diddee. He has been a very good trainer, approachable and always available for any advice or help. He is a brilliant clinician and is well versed with clinical knowledge.

Neeraj has always guided me very well with simple to complex treatment planning. In this practice, I got good experience in all aspects of dentistry- root canal treatments with rotatory protapers, crowns, bridges, inlays, onlays, dentures, extractions. I have always felt at ease working here.

The F.D surgery is modern, spacious and very well equipped. My nurse is very helpful and cooperative. The reception staffs and the practice manager are very well organised and friendly.

I can assure you will be given a very warm welcome here and will gel in with ease.”

“I joined Alpha Dental Studio, Fairfield as an FD in 2010, under the guidance of Neeraj Diddee. I stayed on after I completed my FD year and am now working as an associate. Neeraj’s knowledge and skill in dentistry is superb. He is an excellent trainer, and it is clear that it is a passion of his. He is always willing to put in the time and effort, no matter how large or small the problem is.

The surgery that I worked in as an FD is well equipped, including digital radiographs and access to rotary files for endodontics. During the year I treated many different types of cases and gained experience in so many areas of dentistry: endo, crowns, bridges, dentures (including cobalt-chrome), and of course perio, fillings and extractions! The patients were all lovely, and accommodating to having a young dentist.  

The dental nurse I worked with is very experienced, and it was a delight working with her! The rest of the staff at Fairfield are all very friendly and easy to get on with, and I had no trouble settling into life after dental school.”
