Meet Dr. Rajan Saini

Certified Specialist in Oral Medicine and Oral Pathology

Dear Colleague,
Please allow me to introduce myself briefly. I am Diplomat of the Royal College of Dentists of Canada and a Fellow of the American Association of Oral and Maxillofacial Pathology. I recently completed a four-year Oral Medicine and Oral Pathology Hospital Residency Program from University of British Columbia and Vancouver General Hospital. During my residency, I was fortunate to have gained a tremendous amount of expertise through a large patient volume both in Vancouver and through visiting rotations and several prominent institutions including MD Anderson Cancer Center, Texas A&M College of Dentistry Dallas, Schulich School of Medicine & Dentistry London Ontario, and Long Island Jewish Medical Center New York, among others. This past summer, Dr. Melo invited me to start seeing patients for Oral Medicine and Oral Pathology referral at his clinic located at Suite 302, 3939 Quadra Street. I am grateful for the opportunity.

I practice full scope of Oral Medicine services including the management of patients with oral lesions, temporomandibular joint disorders, bruxism management with pharmacotherapy and appliance therapy, orofacial pain including masticatory muscle myalgia/myofascial pain, neuropathic pains, neuralgias affecting orofacial region, oral manifestations of systemic diseases, hyposalivation/dry mouth or hypersalivation/drooling, burning mouth syndrome, dysplasia/ malignancy diagnosis and follow-up using advanced adjuvant techniques. I also practice in Vancouver with the Vancover Dental Specialty Clinic at 3488 West Broadway. Outside of private practice, I am a Clinical Assistant Professor at the Faculty of Dentistry, the University of British Columbia where I am involved in undergraduate and postgraduate teaching on a part-time basis.

I look forward to contributing to your dental community in a meaningful manner. Enclosed is my referral form. The patients can also be referred online at Please feel free to contact me anytime if you have any questions or would like to meet me in person.
