Meet Our Dentists
Dr. Parveen Atwal
Dr. Parveen Atwal grew up in Abbotsford, BC and received her Bachelor of Science degree at UBC. In 2007 she graduated from New York University with a degree of Doctor of Dental Surgery. She then returned to Surrey, BC and has been practicing as a general dentist in Surrey. Dr. Atwal believes in providing gentle dental care in a safe and harmonious environment. Always spending time to listen to and get to know her patients, she firmly believes that dental health is unique to each individual. Her vision for 21st Century Dental Centre is providing long term patient care for patients and extending that care to their friends and family from one generation to the next.
Dr. Atwal practices all areas of general dentistry which allows her to treat patients of all ages and to provide exceptional care to each of them. Outside of the office she enjoys exercising, hiking and spending time with her husband and three young children.
Dr. Rahil Faruqi
Dr. Faruqi grew up in England, where he obtained his dental degree. He has lived and practiced in Canada for more than 25 years.
At the start of his career, he provided dental services for those in remote locations of Labrador -- often travelling by float plane and helicopter to small outlying communities.
For the last 20 years, he has lived and practiced in Delta and Surrey. Some of his patients who first came to see him as small children are now adults, embarking on further studies or entering the workforce. He feels privileged to have been trusted with their dental health over all these years.
Dr. Faruqi is a firm believer in lifelong education, taking many continuing education courses to advance his skills and to learn new ones.
In addition to adding to his knowledge, he also likes to share his knowledge by teaching future members of the dental profession. Dr. Faruqi has been a part time faculty member of the University of British Columbia dental school for more than 10 years. He particularly enjoys the clinical teaching of final year dental students.
