Who is Dr S Ahiaku?
Sefaakor is a British born Ghanaian who resides in the North West. She comes from a long line of medical professionals, including a mother who is a GP and doctor out of hours, a father who is a consultant urologist and a brother who is a trainee radiologist.
Prior to dental school, she and her family lived in a number of different places, including London, Bournemouth, Plymouth, North Wales and Ghana. Having grown up amongst a diversity of people has given Sefaakor the skills to communicate and interact with a wide array of people - a skill which is invaluable in her job as a dentist.
Career to date
Sefaakor studied dentistry at the thriving University of Liverpool Dental School. During her time there, she excelled academically and over the 5 years she was there, she won the Gilmour Prize for Oral Health, the Scholarship Prize for her Restorative Case Reports and graduated with Honours - gaining distinctions in Restorative and Oral Surgery & Medicine.
Since graduating from dental school, Sefa has continued to widen her knowledge of dentistry by sitting her MFDS exam, attending professional development course and conferences and by being involved in clinical audit and research. She is currently undertaking a masters at King's College London to further her skills.
Sefaakor has worked in a number of different environments since graduation including general dental practice, dental hospital (rotating through each speciality) and district hospital as a maxillofacial senior house officer. These experiences have equipped her to be a well rounded clinician with a good level of experience in every dental speciality.
Sefaakor is really passionate about music and community. In her spare time, she enjoys spending time with her Church family in addition to writing and performing music. She enjoys good food, arts & crafts and dancing.
So what is the 'difference'?
" I believe that everyone has a story to tell. Our story not only speaks about who we are but also about who we are not. I also believe that our stories have a large impact on our health and the decisions we continue to make. As a clinician, I want to know as much of your story as you are happy to share and I want to help you face the next chapter of your story in confidence and with good health."
