Our Practitioners

Dr Kam Fanaian

Dental On GeorgeDr.Kam Fanaian has been practicing clinical dentistry since 1997. He graduated from Manchester University in the UK and migrated to Australia in 2001 looking to excel in his chosen career path.

He soon developed a strong rapport with his working colleagues in Sydney, and took on the role of Clinical Director for the Principal Dental Clinic for NIB Health Funds, NSW. There, he provided impetus and a drive towards excellence in dentistry for the 14 dentists and 3 hygienists working under his care.

In 2004, he and his family decided to move to Perth, and soon after decided to join forces with his long time friend, Dr. Essfahani to realise their dream that is Dental on George.

Dr. Fanaian has a very keen interest in both cosmetic (especially invisible orthodontics) and biological dentistry. He has undertaken postgraduate education to develop his skills in these two fields of dentistry, and is passionate in delivering this knowledge to his patients. His long time affiliation with the work of Helena Ederveen and Paul Alexander helps to provide his patients with the very best in customised general healthcare.

Dr. Fanaian is married with 2 children and enjoys his weekends with the family. On occasions, golf, all codes of football and the odd bit of oil painting, also come into the equation.

Dr Ali Essfahani

Dental On GeorgeDr Ali Essfahani is very passionate in delivering the best that dentistry has to offer. Due to this distinctive quality, he has invested an extensive amount of time and resources in furthering his dental practice, particularly in the field of cosmetics.

Dr Essfahani emphasizes the importance of continued education and hence his practice is constantly evolving to provide his patients with the latest technology and procedures.

Dr Essfahani was born in Los Angeles, USA and grew up in Perth. He completed his dental degree at the University of Western Australia in 2000. His shared vision of dental excellence with Dr Kam Fanaian allowed the vision of Dental on George to be realised.
