1st Dental Microscope Launched

I’m back ……

Today afternoon we had a very impressive ceremony at the Alvi Dental Hospital to launch the first dental Microscope was offically launched, the ceremony was attended by more then 250 influential poeple of Karachi with the Chief Guest as Justice (Retd) Saeeduzaman Siddiqui and also Mr. S H Hashmi the director of Orient McCann-Erikson. A short adress by Dr. Arif Alvi, Justice SaeeduzZaman, SH Hasmi and myself was followed by a one-to-one demonstration of the microscope, this allowed the people to actually appreciate how important tool it is to a dentist in doing treatment.

I will soon update this post to enclose a few pictures, and also a few Freehand designs I made – novice work as it was the first time i used the software but they looked good anyway.

Thank you G3 and Shirazi for all your kind supporting words.


On Leave

To all my frequent readers,

I apologize for my absence, I am a bit preoccupied with a project and hopefully will get done this Saturday. It is a major event being organised by us (Alvi Dental Hospital) to launch the 1st Dental Microscope in Pakistan to the public, for that reason on Saturday 26th Feb we are having a huge press conference in an attempt to get some press coverage.

See you in a few days………


Microscopic Dentistry now in Pakistan

This post is to all wanders that happen to pass this blog of mine – I had to get this out of my system.

We at Alvi Dental Hospital are proud to have recently acquired a Dental-Surgical Microscope (Carl-Zeiss), a first ever for Pakistan infact the ‘only’ dental microscope in Pakistan. Its surprising that only 2% of all practicing dentist in the US, use this as a tool to achieve perfection, while the worldwide percentage is barely in the fractions.

The microscope is used to do dentistry at 24x magnification, which is a substantial leap from the 1x by the naked eye (which most dentists use) or 3x with magnification glasses. You can actually do more acurate dentistry overall. I am now the only dentist in Pakistan to perform Microscopic Endondontics now have the ability to do cutting edge dentistry right here in Pakistan. It is indeed an honour, See me in action here.

Teeth Maestro Re-design

I’m sure frequent visitors to my blog must have noticed a graphic re-design, to tell you the truth I am an amateur at HTML coding so errors might be there which may need attention – so please critique away.

On a side note I would like to thank G3 for designing a banner for my blog. I was almost going to use G3’s design until I accidentally while playing around with Photoshop a created something which appealed to me. I still would like to thank G3 for his effort

CyberWireless Wi-Fi Hotspot Joint venture with Mobilink

I had a meeting with a the Cyber Broadband Product Manager and he had come to pitch for creating a Wi-Fi Hotspot for my Dental Hospital. This is a joint venture with Cyber and Mobilink and the goal is to setup numerous hot-spots around Pakistan so you are virtually always connected.

To access the network all you have to do is send an SMS to the Mobilink network in turn you get an Login ID and PWD and presto you are surfing the net at 512K speeds. Mobilink will in turn bill you the cost per hour might hover around 50/hr (not sure of the exact price). Our dental Hospital will in turn gets free access to the DSL line and all installation costs are borne by Cyber+Mobilink.

I probed the guy to find out whats “the-catch” but nothing came out – I am awaiting the contract which might spell out more details – though they might want a plaque of CyberWireless prominently displayed in the area.

Sounds sweet and I don’t mind giving them advertising space in my place here but nothing is free †or is the cost of advertisment enough to cover the expense? Will keep you posted on its progress.


Orthodontic Seminars in Karachi

It has been a pleasure to be responsible in starting a forum to advance the knowledge of Orthodontics in Karachi. Every Monday morning close to 25 well trained orthodontists get together to discuss cases at length, where the forum is open for cross questioning. This has been really informative for all especially the upcoming in-training orthodontists around the city. I still marvel at how eager, the new generation of Pakistan, is excited to learn and feel proud to be called a Pakistani.

This week while at KMDC there was a detailed case study on two different cases, one who was treated with Functional Herbst Appliance and the other case was a complex TMD Patient, who has been through Anterior Positioning Appliance and is presently undergoing Orthodontics, the discussion was outstanding.

The previous week we had a good discussion at Alvi Dental Hospital and to keep you all posted the following week is scheduled to be held at AKU. I really appreciate the effort of all involved to give their time and effort in this process

Good Job
