I grew up watching my father in his practice of medicine and he became my first inspiration to pursue a career in healthcare. I graduated with a Bachelor of Dental Surgery (BDS/DDS) degree in Pakistan in 2008 and continued with specialty training in Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery which finished in 2014. I grew more passionate about helping people during my training which focused on facial trauma, cleft lip, and palate surgeries and oral cancers. Currently, I am registered as a General Dentist in Canada with interest in implant dentistry and dental surgical procedures. I cherish the opportunity of making a positive impact in my patient’s lives that this career allows me.
I am the most passionate about providing children in need with a supportive environment to flourish in. I actively support the SOS Children’s Village, which is a non-governmental, non-profit organization that provides humanitarian and developmental assistance, to orphaned children, across the globe.

) In addition, I love finding out and supporting initiatives in this area by organisations like BC Children’s Hospital Foundation and Hope and Healing.
In my free time, I love to spend time with my family, try out new recipes, read, write, and engage in outdoor activities. See my adventures here: Ali M (@aj_mehd1) • Instagram photos and videos
I maintain membership status with multiple professional associations including BC College of Oral Health Professionals (BCCOHP), British Columbia Dental Association (BCDA), Doctors without Borders, Cleft Lip and Palate Association of Pakistan.
