Dr. Atharva Desai received his dental surgery degree from Dharmsinh Desai University, India in 2010. After practicing dentistry for about two years in India, Dr. Desai moved to Canada in 2012. He studied dental hygiene at Confederation College, Thunder Bay, ON, where he graduated with distinction and received the academic award of excellence. He then worked as a dental hygienist for a little over three years in Calgary, Brandon (Manitoba) and Toronto. While practicing dental hygiene, Dr. Desai successfully attained his Canadian Dental Equivalency and started practicing dentistry in Toronto.
Having a bigger social circle here and being outdoorsy at heart, Dr. Desai decided to move back to Calgary and joined the Memorial Square Dental Clinic team in 2018. He enjoys all aspects of general dentistry with a keen interest in Endodontics (root canal therapy) and Implant Dentistry. He’s a current member of the Alberta Dental Association & College and the Canadian Dental Association. Dr. Desai likes to keep up with the newer advances in dentistry and tries to soak up all the continuing education he can to provide high-quality treatment to his patients.
When not practicing dentistry, Dr. Desai likes to travel and explore naturally beautiful destinations. He’s an avid reader, a technology buff, a passionate photographer and a Blue Jays fan.
