Farida Ali, DDS
I was raised in Northern New Jersey and attended Teaneck High School. I always knew I wanted to be a Dentist therefore I worked hard to get accepted into the prestigious 7 year BS/DDS program at Fairleigh Dickinson University and New York University College of Dentistry. I did my undergrad in 3 years and finished my graduate school at NYU in 2004. After that, I completed General Practice Residency at Monmouth Medical Center in Long Branch, NJ where I was awarded Resident of the Year.
I still continue teaching new dentists at Monmouth Medical Center today and I had the honor of receiving Teacher of the Year Award from MMC GPR residency. I participate in a local study club to earn continuing education credits and stay current with the latest techniques and technology in the field of dentistry.
I live in Middlesex County with my husband and two children. When not treating patients, I enjoy reading, sewing and jewelry making.

Jeanette Taylor, DA, RDA
I have been Dr. Ali’s assistant and part of the Jackson Dental family since August 2012. I started my journey in dentistry with compassion and love for the field and attended Advantage Career Institute to become licensed. Over the past few years, I continued to move forward to become a Registered Dental Assistant. I assist Dr. Ali with all procedures as well as keeping the office clean and ready for each treatment. What I enjoy most about being part of the Jackson Dental team is the pride we take in educating our patients and treating them like our family.
In my free time, I enjoy crafting and being a mother to my four children.
