Dr Elie Alam

Dr Elie Alam

Lead Cosmetic Dentist

Dr Alam graduated with a Bachelor of Dental Surgery from the University of Sydney in 1995. After working at various practices, Dr Alam opened his own practice in 1997 in Harris Park Village, located on the edge of the vibrant Parramatta CBD under the banner of Painfree Dentistry. The practice has grown to become the biggest privately owned practice in the Parramatta district, with seven dentists, an oral health therapist, and many supporting staff.

Dr Alam maintains a high level of excellence in all areas of dentistry and is passionate about learning innovations and using the latest technologies. With an increasing focus spanning over 25 years, his interests are in complex implant procedures, facial and dental cosmetics and craniofacial orthodontics whilst providing the latest techniques in pain-free and gentle dental treatments.

Dr Alam embarked on his dental implant career in 1998 when few practitioners were performing these complex procedures. Over the last 20 years, he has performed more than one thousand implant procedures. Dr Alam is highly skilled and experienced in all aspects of complex implant procedures and associated surgeries such as bone and soft tissue augmentation, internal and external sinus lift and all on 4/6 implant procedures. He is at the forefront of technology, with Painfree Dentistry being the first practice in Australia to install the newest MYRay large field of view/low radiation Cone Beam machine (CBCT) in 2018. Dr Alam was also the first practitioner in New South Wales to perform mini implant procedures back in 1999. Dr Alam is a highly respected lecturer/mentor in the field of dentistry who is happy to impart his knowledge and expertise to his fellow dentists.

Dr Alam started his dental career in orthodontics in 1998. Previously Dr Alam achieved first place in orthodontics in 1994 during his dental studies at Sydney University. Dr Alam has completed more than 4000 orthodontic cases covering all modalities from fixed braces to removable and clear aligners during his career. Dr Alam has been at the forefront of orthodontic treatment and was one of the early practitioners to adopt no extraction orthodontics.

Dr Alam practices craniofacial orthodontics, where the emphasis is on teeth alignment (straightening) and optimal facial aesthetics, especially improving breathing and stopping bad tongue habits. Dr Alam utilises various techniques such as the AGGA (anterior guided growth appliance) and controlled arch mechanics to develop dental arches to their full genetic potential and improve breathing and make extra spaces for crowded teeth. Dr Alam is a strong believer in early intervention. All young children who attend the practice are screened for mouth breathing and bad tongue habits, which will affect the jaw's proper formation, causing malocclusion to occur. In addition, Dr Alam does practice other modalities of orthodontics such as self-ligation braces, clear braces, clear aligners (especially Invisalign), removable orthodontics and fast (4-6 month) braces.

Dr Alam is very passionate about aesthetic (cosmetic) dentistry and facial aesthetics. To date, he has performed more than ten thousand units of crown/bridge/veneers, a record number that would put him as one of the most experienced practitioners in this field. Dr Alam is committed to continuous education and keeping up with the latest techniques, materials and trends. He attends conferences and seminars, both nationally and internationally. In the last few years, Dr Alam has been one of the early adopters of Digital Smile Design, where the ultimate smile is produced by integrating the patients’ individual facial features and providing a smile that you can see before the work being carried out and then replicated exactly in the mouth.

Dr Alam is one of a handful of practitioners who have attained excellence in aesthetic dentistry, complex implantology and complex orthodontic treatment. He can provide treatment options that would often require a team of specialists. These complex treatments are carried out by Dr Alam, a single practitioner under the same roof and often at a considerable time and financial savings.
