Dr. Ruby Bhullar graduated from the University of British Columbia’s Faculty of Dentistry 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 which provides 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. For all other cases, Dr. Bhullar also provides traditional orthodontic treatment with 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. Staying up to date with current and modern technology is one of the pillars of his daily 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. If you have a strong gag reflex or cannot tolerate traditional dental impressions (molds) then you will be happy to know there are many alternatives today that are actually much more accurate. He enjoys all aspects of dentistry but the most notable disciplines are orthodontic, cosmetic, surgery and implantology.
Giving back to the community is an ongoing aspect of Dr. Bhullar’s personal and professional life. He performs volunteer dentistry through a wide variety of avenues both locally and abroad in an effort to help those that are underprivileged. He also regularly appears on local English & Punjabi radio talk shows and programs to help educate the public on oral health including oral cancer. Dr. Bhullar is a Clinical Associate Professor at the University of British Columbia’s Faculty of Dentistry. He believes the greatest gift students can receive is to achieve the ability to be better than those who taught them.
