Dr. Ruby Bhullar

Dr. Ruby Bhullar

General Dentist

Dr. Ruby Bhullar graduated from the University of British Columbia’s Faculty of Dentistry in 2007 where he obtained his Doctorate of Dental Medicine degree (DMD). Prior to that, his undergraduate training was in the field of Pharmacy also at UBC. Following graduation from dental school he has spent above 500 hours, over the course of several years, in advanced training related to implant dentistry and bone grafting.

This training has taken the form of didactic, academic, clinical and hands on case experience outside of that normally obtained in dental school. After a series of written and oral examinations in both surgical and prosthetic implant dentistry he obtained his Associate Fellowship from the American Academy of Implant Dentistry (AFAAID).

Dr. Bhullar is also a member of the American Academy of General Dentistry (AGD) and the American Academy of Clear Aligners (AACA) which provide a vast network of continuing educational courses on a regular basis to remain current with the modern practice of dentistry. Dr. Bhullar is an established Invisalign provider having treated hundreds of cases that would have normally required metal braces.

He is certified in Conscious Sedation Dentistry to allow those highly anxious patients, who would otherwise be unable to undergo treatment, to do so in a relaxed atmosphere. It is also very helpful for more routine procedures such as wisdom tooth removal. Staying up to date with current and modern technology is one of the pillars of his clinical practice.

Dr. Bhullar regularly employs the use of lasers, CT scans and modern day 3D scanners in the quest for the ultimate patient outcomes. He enjoys all aspects of dentistry but the most notable disciplines are orthodontics, cosmetics, oral surgery and implantology.
