Dr K. Appalraju- General Dentist

Skill and compassion go hand in hand when providing exceptional patient care. As a dental professional, I stay up to date on the latest advancements in dentistry in order to provide the most current treatment options for my patients. As a Dentist, I recognize that my patients are unique individuals who have placed a great deal of trust in me and my team. That is just one reason why I value each and every patient relationship. Many of my patients have not seen a dentist in years because of fear and anxiety:

“I distinctly recall an elderly lady who avoided the dentist for 50 years but who summoned strength to come to see me because of dental sedation. In the end she just needed someone to feel comfortable with and trust. It turned out no sedation was needed! There are many similar stories” I truly cherish helping these patients get the care they require with or without sedation dentistry.

I believe education is one of the pillars of any dental practice. Both my staff and I spend extensive time furthering our skills and training. We constantly educate our patients on all aspects of dentistry from simple preventive care to more complex implant care and bone grafting.

Outside of my dental practice I enjoy spending time with my family and hitting the golf course. I also love a fantastic gourmet meal with friends.

Having grown up in both South Africa and Canada has cultivated a love of travel. One of my favourite places is Bora Bora but I also love the history found in India. This interest took me to the Caribbean for 6 years to live and study.

I have been an active member of the Alberta Dental Association & College for over 16 years.

I appreciate the time you’ve taken to visit this site and find out more about this dental practice, my team, and the many services we can provide to help you achieve optimum oral health.


Dr. S. Patel – General Dentist

I am excited to join Concept Dental. I have been with this great group since June 2018. I hail from India and worked there for 5 years as a dentist. I have been working in Red Deer, Edmonton and various smaller communities in Alberta for the past few years while challenging Canadian Exams. Having passed all accreditation examinations on the first attempt I am eager to meet and care for the citizens of Red Deer.

I speak 5 languages and enjoy travelling and cooking with my spouse.
