While Dr. Bharat Singh Dulat has been the pioneering force and founder of Dental Designs, our staff members have been handpicked as much for their professional qualities as for their personal ones. People with ability abound, but how they reach out with that ability and make a difference is what makes Dental Designs a truly responsive and hospitable environment for dealing with all your dental needs.
Transparency is crucial to us for we truly believe that every patient should have all the information at their hand in order to make a truly informed decision about their health. Hence we have a highly trained and dedicated staff whose only job is to educate and assist our patients to thoroughly understand all of their treatment options and costs associated with their treatment. It is our privilege to be working with some of the most dedicated individuals in this field and a joy to have them serve the needs of our patients in such an enriching way!
The number one thing that people say about Dr. Dulat is, "I can't believe how much time he spent with me!" But that is Dr. Dulat's love of education shining through as he takes great pain to explain everything in great detail and make sure patients understand exactly what is happening in their mouths.
Dr. Dulat graduated from University of Manitoba's Faculty of Dentistry and has been in private practice since then. He is a man who believes that his dental degree was only the beginning of his education as he actively seeks to keep himself abreast with the latest in the field.
With two full time dental practices and over 2000 hours of continuing education from some of the most renowned masters of cosmetic and implant dentistry, it is not surprising that Dr. Dulat's collective knowledge and skills are sheer magic!
