Dr. Simar Hundal

Dentist

Dr. Hundal was born and raised in Punjab, India and completed the first stage of her professional education there, receiving her Bachelor of Science in 1989 and Bachelor of Dentistry in 1994. An excellent student, she remained on the merit list throughout her education.

Before moving to Canada in 2008, she worked as a lecturer in Dentistry at SGRD institute of Dental Sciences and Research for 3 years and established her own family dental practice in 1997 that she ran successfully until immigrating. She completed her qualifying program at Dalhousie University in 2011 with a DDS degree. After graduating she worked as an associate in Labrador and Halifax before forming TranscenDental Group in September 2014.

Dr. Hundal is known for her compassionate care and great clinical skills. She is very committed to provide the best possible dental care to her patients, befitting to their expectations and needs. She believes that ‘ultimate goal of every dental professional is to work for eliminating the need of their own profession’ and works continuously to achieve that goal for her patients.

Dr. Hundal is committed to continued education and takes regular courses to update her knowledge on Dental Implants, Cosmetic Smile Design, and Orthodontics. She is member of the Canadian Dental Association, Nova Scotia Dental Association and Atlantic Canada Seattle Study club.

Dr. Hundal’s life is a story of personal success mixed with tragedy and facing it with perseverance and courage. In 2013, tragedy struck when Dr. Hundal and her husband lost their only 18-year-old son Angad Hundal, in a motorcycle accident. After the enormous loss she could not work for a year. She and her husband want to spend the rest of their life in Halifax, a city their son loved so much. Dr. Hundal wants to find a meaning in life by doing what she does best, dentistry. She also has plans to setup a foundation in her son’s name, which will work to promote, develop and enhance good moral character among youth in Nova Scotia and Canada.

She lives in Bedford with her husband and spends her free time reading, writing, traveling, exercising and taking long walks. She has a great interest in human behaviour and loves to learn about others.
