Dr. San Bhatha knew he wanted to become a dentist even before he was in his teens. Inspired by his family dentist who practiced in Richmond, BC, Dr Bhatha had his career path laid out for him quite early on. “Unlike other children, I really looked forward to visiting my dentist. He was fun, friendly, and someone I enjoyed talking to, even as a kid. He became a role model to me, which sparked my interest in the profession,” he says. 

Now, as a practicing dentist for over two decades and owner of Southridge Dental, Dr Bhatha has always aspired to be as authentic and friendly with his clients as possible. He takes pride in his dental clinic, offering his clients the highest level of customer service, making them feel safe and welcome while providing the best possible treatment in the most pain-free manner. As someone who loves meeting people, Dr Bhatha shares, “Ours is a family practice, and I enjoy engaging with my patients—in fact, I’ve known some of them since they were kids, and now they are all grown up.” 

Given the kind of effort and care Southridge Dental puts into its client relations, it’s no surprise that it constantly receives new patients, leading it to recently expand its clinic into the space next-door. The clinic now has an additional 3 new treatment rooms including one dedicated surgical room, taking the total number of treatment rooms to 11 to accommodate new patients. As such, the clinic offers every possible dental treatment to their patients, including Invisalign (now available to kids) single and full mouth implants, Cosmetic treatments such as smile makeovers with Veneers and crowns, oral surgeries including bone and gum graft and wisdom teeth removal, full mouth rehabilitations, Botox and regular child and adult treatments including emergencies. 

Recently, Southridge Dental won the Medium-Sized Business Award from the South Surrey & White Rock Chamber of Commerce. It was also voted the best Cosmetic Dentist and the Best Dental office in Surrey by the community. “All these awards only reaffirm my belief that we have an amazing team at Southridge Dental. They have a great work ethic and always provide empathy and care to all of our patients.  We take the time to listen to all of our patients needs in order to deliver the best patient experience,” adds Dr Bhatha, excited to talk about his team. 

Besides working, Dr Bhatha is passionate about community service. He and his family have been raising money and awareness along with Youth Unlimited for homeless youth for the last 5 years by participating in an event called “One Night Out,” which involves sleeping in the freezing cold in November with other people from the community. He has also been involved with the City of Surrey’s school district’s Backpack Program, which helps provide backpacks with all the supplies to those in need.  Dr Bhatha and his team also pick various charitable organizations each Christmas and collectively as a team put together gift baskets for organizations such as Sources, the SPCA, LAPS, the Surrey Food Bank, and local women’s shelters.  Dr Bhatha also supports various community sports teams, both financially and with their fundraising events. 

Dr Bhatha has been married for almost 24 years to his wife Sandeep, whom he considers his biggest inspiration in life and has 2 beautiful kids, Suhaana, 19, entering her 3rd year at UBC Sauder Business School, and his son, Suvaan, 17, about to enter 1st year at UBC Sauder Business School this fall.  He is also passionate about road biking, and has participated in the Whistler GranFondo twice, once with his wife Sandeep. He is a member of the Peninsula Triathlon Club. Last year, as he turned 50, he participated in his first beginner triathlon. He also enjoys travelling and exploring new places with his family.
