Dr. Mehr Poulad

Dr. Poulad received his dental degree from the University of British Columbia. His undergraduate degree is in Cell biology, Genetics and Economics. He was a member of the Golden Key Honour society which is by invitation only to the top 15% of university students. During his time as a dental student he received the Canadian Academy of Periodontology Book Prize, given to the graduating student with the highest standing in periodontics, and the Oral B Award in Dentistry, given to the most well rounded dental student. During his studies as a dental student he had an externship to a rural BC community where he really got an opportunity to hone his skills as a dentist. With no specialist in town he was expected to perform all aspects of dentistry and he enjoyed the experience so much that after completing dental school he returned to that community to provide dental care to the underserved. Dr. Poulad loves being a dentist and continues to educate himself with continuing education in the areas of:

  • Endodontic Treatment
  • Anterior Composite fillings
  • Sedation
  • Invisalign
  • Complex indirect restorations (crown & bridge)
  • Oral Surgery
  • Implant placement and restoration
  • Oral Pathology

Dr. Poulad gets along with all ages, he spent 10yrs as a daycamp leader, sports instructor, teen mentor and referee with the North Van Rec Commission. In addition to his experience with children and adolescents he volunteered at the Evergreen House, a long term care facility for the elderly. Growing up on the North Shore allowed him to have an active life. He grew up playing many team sports: basketball, soccer, rugby and volleyball. He continued with basketball and soccer at UBC playing on several intramural mens teams.

Dr. Poulad’s focus is on patient care and ensuring that the patient is comfortable while receiving professional and meticulous treatment. My goal is to put the patient at ease and make them feel safe and comfortable prior to starting any dental treatment. I involve my patients in their care by educating them and allowing them to make an informed decision. I take great pride in alleviating any anxiety or fear the patient may have and providing them efficient, first class service
