Dr. Hardeep Bhatta
Hardy, as he is affectionately known by friends, grew up in Ilford (part of Greater London), Essex in England. He was born just a stone's throw away in Seven Kings. Hardy attended the University of Glasgow and Glasgow Dental Hospital and School in Scotland, graduating with his BDS in 1995 (this, to some extent, explains his "accent"). After attending an externship in Hong Kong in 1994, he published a paper in The British Journal of Oral Maxillofacial Surgery in 1996 on asymptomatic impacted wisdom teeth. As a dentist, he worked in Basildon (Essex), East Ham (London), and Harrow (London). After visiting family in Vancouver in 1988, he fell in love with Canada and became determined to one day work here. This goal was ultimately fulfilled after gaining his DMD at UBC Dental School in 2001.
Special interests in TMD, Sleep Apnea, Complex Restorative, Cosmetics, and Invisalign have kept his Continuing Education program filled with advanced courses. His treatment goal and philosophy is to provide well educated decisions alongside his patients to improve not only their dental health but overall physical health. By carefully aligning his patient's needs towards ideal dental health, a unique and rewarding partnership is formed in the common road to dental fitness. He strives to provide a warm, friendly, and inviting atmosphere to all he is honoured to serve. He cares not only about the smile, but more importantly the person behind the smile. He will always have a warm welcoming positive energy and attitude ready and waiting for you.
Hardy is the proud father of 3 young children. His wife is an elementary school teacher who works in the Surrey school district. Hardy enjoys technology, reading non-fiction, computers and movies. His spare time currently is focused on his young family. He enjoys traveling and learning about new cultures, historical artefacts, listening to music (especially British 80s!), and loves engaging with people.
