We at Alvi Dental are excited to share the opening of our new location on Khy-e-Shahbaz – this location comes after many requests by our clientele to have our cutting edge dental practice in DHA/Clifton area also.
The new practice location is a three corner, four story structure, with a breathtaking view of the city of Karachi from practically every floor. The building is custom built and has been modified to cater to our dental practice. It is punctuated with a tastefully decorated interior and ensures that our patients feel comfortable and at home
The Ground floor has spacious seating with a reception to greet you upon arrival. We have ample seating to accommodate accompanying attendants but our goal is to promptly seat our clients in the executive dental clinics for further treatment, valuing their time.
The Second Floor is reserved for staff & doctors offices – this floor also houses our state of the art sterilization setup – a 23-Ltr (high volume) Class B (best standard) equipment specially imported from Germany which ensures that our patients get only the best in sterilization. It heats all sealed pouches to 134ºC under pressure of 15 to 30 psi – the equipment is geared towards total protection, if there is any lapse in the process, the machine just does not work, and no shortcuts – ensuring our pledge to have the most highly certified internationally accepted sterilization standard.
The Third Floor boasts a breathtaking view of Karachi and is reserved for all our Executive clinics, three spacious operatories. Each operatory has the top of the line A-Dec 500 series dental chair specially imported from the US. This particular line is renowned for their plush feel and are extremely comfortable. The third floor also has a Carl Zeiss Root Canal Microscope & a Kodak Carestream 3D/CTBT/OPG/Ceph machine, the only CTBT three dimensional Cat-Scan Dental Xray machine in Pakistan
The Fourth Floor has two additional dental chairs, one reserved for children dentistry with a play area and the other a more spacious dental operatory with the possibility of accommodating clients having more complex dental procedures.
Special care was taken in designing this facility, to optimally deliver the best possible services to all our patients, this office is geared to be fully paperless, with a full gigabit network, connecting all our internal computers and simultaneously connected to a live database sharing between both our locations (Sindhi Muslim & Shahbaz), so we can jointly manage all our patients records as a unified service, all previous history, x-rays & database accessible a mere mouse click away.
Were excited to welcome you to our new location, or swing by the setup in Sindhi Muslim, take a pick which ever suits you best
It goes without saying that Islam is a religion which pays attention to the cleanliness, decency, and the good appearance and smell of its adherents. Muslims are recommended to appear decent and clean. They also are to keep their mouth clean by using a brush or miswak
Sheikh Ahmad Kutty, a senior lecturer and Islamic scholar at the Islamic Institute of Toronto states
It is absolutely fine to brush one’s teeth in the morning with toothpaste while fasting so long as one takes care not to swallow the paste. Toothpaste is not intended for consumption. Fast is only broken when it goes directly into our system. To say that one cannot use toothpaste is nothing but rigidity
The eminent Muslim scholar, Sheikh Yusuf Al-Qaradawi, adds,
If anything reaches the stomach, it breaks one’s fast according to the majority of Muslim jurists. If one is cautious and brushes his teeth and out of forgetfulness some traces of the toothpaste reach his stomach, he is not sinful, as Allah forgives the mistakes of Muslims that are made unintentionally
While the renowned scholar Zakir Naik had this to say on the specific question
We’re excited to share that Alvi Dental Hospital has received the much awaited Digital 3D Cone Beam scanning machine, a first installation in any dental practice in Pakistan. The availability of a 3D machine is now considered a global standard for dental practice.
The advantages are breathtaking
Traditionally dental x-rays (a 2D image/picture) though an amazing tool has its own set of limitations, but with the advent of 3D & CBCT technology a simple tooth 3D scan can reveal far more information to the accuracy of 76 micrometers than ever before possible
Which ensures cutting edge accurate diagnosis for Root canals, Implants, Orthodontics and Surgical issues the diagnostics utility of haveing a CBCT machine is endless
From having the First Dental Microscope in Pakistan, we now can easily lay claim to having the First Dental 3D/CT machine in Pakistan.
To commemorate the World Oral Health Day on 20th March – We at Alvi Dental Hospital would like to shared a free ebook for children which can be downloaded and installed on any eReader and used to educate the children on the importance of Oral Hygiene and inculcate good habits.

The book follows the story of Mascarpone, a mouse detective, as he travels around the world trying to solve the mystery of the missing teeth. In his quest he meets different characters such as the Tooth Fairy, la Petite Souris from France, and the tooth spirits in Africa, who will teach him about many traditions in different regions of the globe. The book also includes 10 steps to improve healthy smiles to ensure children learn about the importance of a healthy oral routine which will help them in preventing oral health problems in the future.
