Dr. Gurpreet Sidhu

Dr. Gurpreet Sidhu Dentist

I graduated from the University of British Columbia with dual degrees in Psychology and Microbiology in 2002. I then undertook my Doctor of Dental Surgery degree at the University of Detroit Mercy. For 5 years, I provided extensive treatment to patients who lacked convenient access to the dental specialties and then after completing an advanced prosthetic program at the KOIS centre in Seattle I moved back to the lower mainland to call it home.

Are you a native Vancouverite?

I was born and raised in Grand Forks as part of a large, tight-knit family. When it comes to finding a dentist, I know how to spot a good one. I saw the same dentist from the time I was a toddler until I was in college. That experience made a lasting impression on me and it gave me a model of how a positive dentist-patient relationship should be. I want to help patients find solutions to whatever obstacles they have. I want to make people feel motivated and excited to come to the dentist!

What do you like the most about working at Blue Water Dental?

I love seeing patients at Blue Water Dental so I can welcome new residents, introduce myself to long time residents, hear their stories and get to know them over time. Learning about people’s careers and life changes and watching families develop as mine does as well is a source of great joy for me.

What do you like to do when you are not hanging out at Blue Water Dental?

Outside of work, I spend most of my time with my wife, Dimple, and my two incredible children, Arya and Sahil. Together, we love going to the beach and building sandcastles, vacationing and enjoying all the local parks here. My favourite side hobby is photography and learning how to get better at it every time I pick up a camera.

Are you a native Vancouverite?

Born and raised in Vancouver, I am a fourth generation Canadian. I grew up in east Vancouver and spent a lot of time in the Chinatown area. Unfortunately, being in the Chinatown environment did not lead to any fluency of Cantonese.

I feel very blessed to have practiced dentistry for over forty years. I enjoy doing the different procedures and learning about new techniques, technologies and materials. What is best is having the opportunity to meet people, to get to know them and to help them with their dental needs in a caring way. I am happy to be part of Blue Water Dental because our desire is to work together as a team to make each patient’s visit a positive experience.
