Dr. Alma Bukhari spent most of her life in Boston, Massachusetts. She received her Bachelor of Science in Biochemistry. Later in 2011, she received her Doctorate degree from Boston University Goldman School of Dental Medicine. After Dental School she moved to Toronto. Dr. Bukhari believes in a friendly patient based approach to her treatment. She enjoys all aspects of dentistry and loves treating anyone from our youngest patients to our eldest patients. Her favourite part of her job is making the trip to the dentist an overall enjoyable experience. Dr. Bukhari is a member of the Ontario Dental Association and Canadian Dental Association. When she is not busy in the office, Dr. Bukhari enjoys spending time with her husband and three children. A lot of her time is spent coordinating activities for her family. But in her spare time she enjoys music, movies, and all kinds of good food.

Why should patients choose you as their provider instead of others in the area?

I pride myself on my friendly approach to dentistry. I aim to provide the best level of care while still providing a friendly and caring environment.

What are the top 3 treatments that you focus on?

Top 3 treatment that I focus on are composite restorative fillings, extractions and root canals treatments.

What are you proud of in your practice?

I love it when my patients leave the appointment feeling as if they gained a healthy smile and learned new skills to help maintain it.

Which cases do you enjoy treating? Why?

I am very passionate about treating each client specific to their needs, and strive to make a positive impact with each patient. My favourite type of case to treat is when a front tooth chips or breaks. It feels good to instantly provide someone their smile back.

    Very pleasant experience getting a checkup and cleaning. They got my insurance information in advance and were able to confirm what procedures were covered, and explained everything that was done and what they found. Very quick and helpful. Thank you!

    Highly recommend! After not being to a dentist through all of covid I was very nervous and embarrassed about going back. All of the staff members were so patient and friendly. I was trying to justify why I hadn’t taken the best care of my teeth and the hygienist told me “I’m not the judge or the jury, I’m just here to help you”. The hygienist was very gentle and respectful. The dentist was probably the best dentist I have ever seen. She spent lots of time with me talking over all of my concerns and discussing the best approach for my issues. I have already booked my next appointment.

    Everyone was very friendly and welcoming. I hadn’t been to the dentist in a long time and I feel at ease during the whole appointment. They sent over a few forms via email to fill out in advance so as soon as I arrived, I didn’t have to wait at all. They also took care of submitting my insurance claim.

    Great experience with all staff. I have been weary about going back to a dentist due to my own personal challenges but the staff at Dev Dental were there every step of the way to help. They were simply amazing. I'm now back to have my wisdom teeth removed and it's only the second week.

    Great visit. Quick and clear communication while booking the appointment for the first time. All paperwork was sent in advance with an option to either email back or to bring in person. Great office, very professional and peaceful. Everything was right on time, no waiting before the appointment and within. All was done great. Very gentle but at the same time no corners cut. From what I can tell. I also got a good and to the point advice for all the work that needs to be done. My budget was fully considered. I see no charges on my bill that I struggle to understand. I saw other dentists being very "creative" with billing which was very upsetting. Overall, I am very happy with this appointment. It looks like I finally found a dentist I can trust.

    Dr Bukhari went through my xrays with me and pointed out areas of concern with details and then gave me options for the possible treatment plans. She asked me if I had any concerns and when I shared my concerns she asked me detailed questions and spent some time to see what could be causing the issue.

    I enjoyed Dr Bukhari’s services and felt like she really gave my teeth a great clean! She also answered all my questions and let me choose exactly what kind of care I was looking for without pressuring me into x-rays or any other additional services. I was less impressed with her dental assistant, who left shreds of floss in between my teeth and wasn’t very personable. Overall a good experience.

    Dr. Bukhari was amazing! My dental hygienist was Nicole and she was so awesome as well! It had been a while since my last dentist visit and they made it really easy and comfortable. I never felt pressured or ill-informed. They do such a great job of explaining what's happening, what they are looking at, what things mean, etc. I had to reschedule before my appointment for an urgent call and the accommodation was easy and effortless. I really really really recommend Dr. Alma Bukhari!
