Born in Kenya, Dr. Bhandari came to Canada in 1967 and grew up in Montreal, Mississauga, and Burlington. McMaster University was Dr. Bhandari’s next stop, where he obtained his Bachelor of Science Degree in Biology in 1979.

Practising now for more than 30 years, Dr. Bhandari has helped families, business owners, and celebrities alike achieve and maintain their oral health goals. He was even the on-call dentist for Oprah and her entourage when she was in Hamilton!
Creating an environment where he can help you meet your family’s oral health needs has always been Dr. Bhandari’s priority. Whether he is offering regular preventive care to help you maintain your already-good oral health, replacing missing teeth with dental implants, brightening your smile with teeth whitening, or even providing laser treatment to help heal a cold sore, as your family’s oral healthcare practitioner, Dr. Bhandari only wants the best for your smiles and health.
Outside of Dentistry
Dr. Bhandari is dedicated to both his patients and our community. Community involvement, dental health advocacy, and philanthropy are all essential parts of Dr. Bhandari’s life. He has been on The Charity of Hope Oakville committee since 2003 and is a member of the Oakville Rotary (where he was awarded the International Paul Harris Award from Rotary International in 2004 for the highest standard of charitable work). Dr. Bhandari continues to advocate and educate the public on dental health and has been a keynote speaker at the Total Woman’s Show in Kitchener to discuss oral cancer, cosmetic dental treatments, and teeth whitening.
Dr. Bhandari's commitment to helping everyone enjoy good oral health extends to educating physicians who see patients with emergency and day-to-day dental care needs. In this video, Dr. Bhandari speaks to nearly 850 medical practitioners at the 93rd Annual Clinic Day at the Hamilton Convention Centre. Dental trauma, periodontal issues, and the importance of recognizing dental issues during patients’ annual exams were some key talking points.
