Meet our Team

Dr. Bilal Paracha

Sedation Dentist

I grew up in the GTA & completed my dental degree at Schulich School of Medicine & Dentistry at Western University in 2016. I am a general dentist, but my practice is limited to oral surgery, and implant dentistry. 

I am a strong believer in lifelong learning & regularly continue my training in advanced dental procedures. I have successfully treated thousands of patients suffering from dental anxieties/phobias. I have significant experience in complicated extractions, impacted wisdom teeth, bone grafting, and the replacement of missing teeth using dental implants. I am also trained in PRF/PRP which allows for a faster recovery time after surgery, with better outcomes, and less pain!

I am a member of the Ontario Dental Association, Canadian Dental Association, Academy of General Dentistry & the Royal College of Dental Surgeons of Ontario.

Outside of dentistry, I love to travel the world & learn about different cultures, food & history. I am also an avid sports enthusiast & a die-hard Toronto Raptors, Blue Jays & Maple Leaf’s fan. I am excited to provide dentistry to the local community and look forward to serving the municipality of Markham.
