Meet Our Team


Dr. Nantha Rajkumar (DMD, BDS)

Oral health is an inseparable part of overall health and well-being. As a general and family dentist, I believe in educating patients and providing them with the knowledge and tools necessary to achieve and maintain optimal oral health. I believe in listening to patients and working with them to develop a treatment plan based on their individual needs to ensure the best possible outcome.

Nothing is more gratifying than to see patients satisfied with the results of their treatment.

Every day is different with this career. I like the diversity of procedures and of patients, and I strive to bring relaxation and enjoyment to both. When my patients are comfortable, so am I. When my patients are happy, I am too.After moving to Canada with almost 10 years of clinical experience as a dentist, I graduated as a Doctor of Dental Medicine (DMD) from the University of British Columbia where I also enjoy working as a clinical instructor for future dental professionals. I am committed to staying current with the latest developments in the dental field and attend many continuing education seminars and conventions. I also further my general dentistry studies in the field of orthodontics, prosthodontics, periodontics, implantology and sedation. I am an active member of the British Columbia Dental Association, the Canadian Dental Association, and the College of Dental Surgeons of British Columbia.

Outside of work, I like spending quality time with my loved ones especially my husband Raj and children Ajay & Garshana.
I also like cooking, cake decorating, shopping and going on walks with our adorable Pomeranian dog Charlie Brown. To keep myself fit and active, I like playing badminton and going to the gym.
