Wellesley Dental Group celebrates 20 years!

Screen Shot 2017-08-08 at 8.49.30 PMDrs. Femina and Ejaz Ali, and the whole team at Wellesley Dental Group, are in full celebration mode this month. August 4th commemorates their 20th year of delivering healthy and beautiful smiles to the Wellesley and surrounding communities. Fittingly, they were also awarded recognition as Boston’s Top Dentists in this year’s August edition of Boston Magazine – definitely something to smile about!

The team wanted to honor this milestone with a fun, cookout-style party for friends, family, patients and community members. Over 100 people attended, enjoying hot-off-the-grill barbeque, cool refreshments and great company. Together, the community spirit served as a perfect tribute to all the friendships the Drs. Ali have formed over the last 20 years.

Looking ahead, they look forward to many more years of serving as smile ambassadors, especially now that their team is growing, with the addition of their daughter, Dr. Zarah Ali, a general dentist, as well as a group of dedicated specialists.
