Dr. Kumar is a native of BC, having grown up in the lower mainland for a majority of his youth. He spent a large portion of his younger days in Langley, BC and now calls it home with his lovely wife. He completed his undergraduate studies at U.B.C. and then traveled to the U.S. to complete his Dental schooling at Temple University, Pennsylvania. Beautiful weather and opportunity then took him to Los Angeles, California, where he practiced for many years honing his skills in various areas of dentistry. He decided to start his own practise in Langley, and provide care in the methods that he believed in for his patients. Dr. Kumar believes Modern Dentistry is the key to providing patients quality dentistry- making the most effective use of their time, while minimizing discomfort. His honest and clear explanation of sometimes complex dental issues is the reason patients love their visit, and feel empowered about their oral health.
In his spare time, Dr. Kumar loves to share his experience with future dentists as an Assistant Clinical Instructor at UBC School of Dentistry. He also enjoys many hobbies, which include working on classic cars, leather working, boating, travelling, cooking, and among family is renowned for being able to fix anything!
