Meet the Doctors

Marhama Alvi, DDS

Cosmetic & Restorative Family Dentist

Dr. Marhama Alvi joined West Somerville Dental in 2008 with six years of prior experience in private practice. She received her Doctor of Dental Medicine from the Boston University Goldman School of Dental Medicine.

As a fourth generation dentist in her family, Dr. Alvi carries the dental tradition as she continuously strives to build upon the valuable skills passed down from the generations. Dr. Alvi’s extensive training in the use of advanced dental technology, including digital radiography and the use of intraoral cameras, allows her to optimize her comprehensive dental treatment plans.

Dr. Alvi is an expert in cosmetic and restorative family dentistry, root canals, crowns, bridges, and implant restorations. She loves children’s dentistry, and her kind and gentle personality helps put patients at ease. A member of the Massachusetts Dental Society and the American Dental Association, Dr. Alvi frequently donates her time to non-profit organizations and teaches good oral hygiene to underprivileged children in the area.

When she is not busy at work, Dr. Alvi enjoys spending time with her family (two toddlers and a husband) and doing art projects.
