Our Dental Team
Dr Justin Bhullar
Hi! My name is Dr. Justin Bhullar , and I’m pleased to introduce you to our new clinic, West Airdrie Dental. To me, dentistry isn’t just a profession. It’s a passion. And I hope to change the way you view your visit to the dentist and entire dental experience.Born and raised in Vancouver, BC, I’ve had a fascination with science since I was kid. So after graduating high school, it just seemed logical that I’d follow that interest. I moved west to the Prairies for my post-secondary education. At the University of Saskatchewan, I studied Biochemistry and Dentistry over the course of 8 years. I graduated with a DMD (Doctor of Medicine in Dentistry) degree and have been practicing in the Red Deer and Airdrie areas ever since.As a General Dentist, I’m humbled to have daily opportunities to educate and assist patients in all areas of their dental health. Our clinic works in all branches of dentistry. We provide patients with overall oral health care, wisdom tooth extractions, dental implants, decay prevention, emergency dental care, sleep apnea treatment, and so much more.By providing a wide variety of services, we are able to see our patients at all stages of their lives. We’re honoured to serve Albertans from their very first dental visit as toddlers, with just two or three milk teeth, through to their teenaged years when their dental anatomy starts to shift (sometimes requiring orthodontics), and finally as grown adults with children of their own. It’s a privilege to see and work with all our patients, from the young to the young at heart!At West Airdrie Dental, we treat our clients with respect, and we strive to provide our patients with the exceptional care we know they deserve. All our clients, regardless of their treatment, may choose to be sedated for their comfort. We’re dedicated to providing our patients an enjoyable dental experience, and that means helping you feel at ease and relaxed.
We endeavor to go beyond just providing exceptional service. We strive to offer our patients the knowledge they need to take their dental health decisions into their own hands. Our goal is to educate all our patients about the importance of cavity prevention and oral health maintenance. We will work together as a team to treat small problems before major concerns ever have a chance to develop.
Call us today so that our team can map out a dental treatment plan that meets your unique needs!
Dr. Amrita Sandhu-Gill
Hi! My name is Dr. Amrita Sandhu-Gill and I am a general dentist here at Beacon Smiles Dental. I was born and raised in Edmonton, AB. I attended the University of Alberta and completed my undergraduate degree in Biological and Physical Sciences. I moved out east to Boston, MA to complete my dental degree at Boston University Henry M. Goldman School of Dental Medicine. After graduating, I moved back to Alberta and my husband and I have made Calgary our new home.
Our goal at Beacon Smiles is to provide an excellent experience for each of our patients. From our very first visit, we strive to create a dental experience that is custom tailored to your individual needs. We want to work together with our patients to enhance their oral health through a comprehensive approach. In doing so, I strongly focus on educating my patients about their dental needs so that each patient is able to make informed decisions regarding their treatment. I appreciate and am excited to answer any questions or concerns that my patients have regarding their treatment options.
The most rewarding part of my day is when I am able to make the most anxious and hesitant patients, both young and old, feel comfortable and relaxed during their dental visits. In addition to using particular approaches to help manage stress that our patients go through, I also offer nitrous oxide and oral sedation options for your visits.
In my spare time, I focus my time on working out and living a healthy lifestyle, and convincing my husband to do the same.
