The History of Oakdale Dental

The Practice Origins 

The practice was started prior to the Second World War in Sileby, Leicestershire by Kenneth Smith and William Sylvanus Jones who were the original partners. After the war they acquired premises at 23 Fosse Road Central and moved the practice there. The practice was called Smith & Jones at that time.

Why Us

The Current Premises

In 1963 David Hern joined the partnership and 21 Fosse Road Central was bought and the practice expanded into the two houses. The practice became known as “Smith, Jones and Hern”. 

Ken Smith died at the end of 1971, creating a vacancy and Laurence Jacobs joined at the start of 1972, quickly followed by Paul Jolley as the practice grew. Michael Seal joined the partnership in 1982.

Becoming Oakdale Dental

David Hern retired in 1995 and the name changed to Oakdale Dental Practice this being the name of the house, number 23.

The dental practice has always been proud of its close links with dental education. It became a training practice in the Trent Vocational Training Scheme in 1985 and is now the home to the Leicester Dental Study Club. The Study Clubs engage with the local dental community and help to transfer knowledge and in turn improve the overall standard of dentistry available in Leicester.

The partnership of Jacobs, Jolley, Seal, and Butters was dissolved in 2004, and when Laurence Jacobs went into partnership with Bayan Al Saraj who then took over control of the practice when Laurence Jacobs retired in 2008. Mr. Al Saraj was the sole principal for six years until it was taken over by Alif Moosajee in 2014. Alif and his team have worked hard to elevate the standards at the practice even further and are fully focused on providing exceptional patient care and outstanding treatment results. We hope that you will choose to join our family.
