About our dental forum


For over two years, the Dorset and Hampshire Dental Forum has been bringing local dentists together to share information, both academic and social. The sole aim of the dental forum is to benefit both patients and professionals through creating a network where ideas can easily be shared.

We encourage collaboration with a safe and friendly environment. Our group provides case help for members, directly helping dentists with a hub of knowledge and experience to tap into. We also run CPD courses in different specialisms to improve professional development.

About Farid


Dr Farid Asghari

BDS Lond 2000, MJDF RcsEng

Director of DHDF

Dr Farid Asghari is the sole founder of the Dorset and Hampshire Dental Forum and trained at Bart’s Hospital and the Royal London Hospital, where he received his BDS in 2000. Farid is very knowledgeable and experienced in general dentistry, and implant dentistry and orthodontics are his main interests. He passed the MJDF examination in November 2012, governed by the Royal College of Surgeons.

I had a vision to bring the local dental community even closer together in Dorset and Hampshire, and in January 2018, I created a local dental group named Dorset and Hampshire Dental Forum or DHDF.

It has since grown to over 100 participants who have been able to interact and share knowledge, experiences and ideas on social media platforms. Throughout 2018, I was able to offer five CPD courses and we met for our annual dinner in November of same year. In 2019, we had very similar activities and the members are enjoying the interaction and its benefits.

In order to expand my vision, this is only possible with the support and participation of as many local dentists as possible. We are all working within a very close local dental community and such interactions as a group will only bring us closer. Some of the benefits of joining our group include verifiable CPD courses, sharing knowledge and clinical experiences on social media platforms as well as getting group discounts form dental companies.

Feel free to join our Dental forum while there is no joining fee and take part in building the future of local dental community.
