Dr. Farida Ali’s passion for dentistry started as a child visiting her family dentist! She always knew she wanted to be a dentist and put a smile on people’s face. Her journey started when she was accepted into a prestigious accelerated dental program from high school. She graduated Fairleigh Dickinson University with a Bachelor of Science in biology in 3 years. After that, she went on to New York University College of Dentistry, where she graduated with her Doctor of Dental Surgery degree in 2004.  In 2005, she completed her residency at Monmouth Medical Center where she was awarded the Resident of the Year award. 


Dr. Ali holds a volunteer teaching faculty position at Monmouth Medical Center where she’s been honored with the Teacher of the Year award. She is a member of American Dental  Association, New Jersey Dental Association and Monmouth-Ocean County dental society. 


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.
