About Your Dentist

Okello Aliker, DDS

"Our smiles are as individual as we are. Function and esthetics are interlinked. A dental visit is as much a chance to meet as to treat you."

My Mission

"I am driven to help my patients achieve optimal function and esthetics, in an ethically-bound manner. I am a relationship-driven dentist, equally keen to know the person behind the smile as I am to try and help them achieve sustainable, long-term oral health."
