Checked your fuses?
An alternator replacement shouldn't involve any wiring work that would
affect parts of the dash--should be a matter of one or two plugs on the
alternator. As long as he disconnected the battery first, either all of
it should work or none.
Now, if he forgot to disconnect the battery until he saw a spark off a
connector from the alternator, it's possible he blew a fuse somewhere,
possibly more than one.
