Dr. Bill Mulgrew has been practicing orthodontics in Kelowna since 1995. Like many Okanagan residents, he was born and raised in Edmonton, Alberta. He graduated with a Doctor of Dental Surgery degree from the University of Alberta in 1989. His active lifestyle drew him to Victoria, BC, to practice general dentistry.
Dr. Mulgrew's interest in orthodontics began in dental school. He enjoyed the analytical nature of orthodontics, and after four years of general dentistry practice, he decided to return to university to work on his specialization. Dr. Mulgrew attended the Oregon Health Sciences University in Portland for two years of orthodontic specialty training, graduating in 1995.
Dr. Mulgrew enjoys continuing education and is enthusiastic about the recent advances in orthodontic technology. He has an interest in the use of temporary anchorage devices in orthodontics and the clinical application of Invisalign® of which he is certified. He is a member of several organizations, including the Canadian and American Associations of Orthodontists, and the Canadian Dental Association. Dr. Mulgrew is also involved with local groups, including the BC Society of Orthodontists and the Kelowna Dental Society.
Dr. Mulgrew feels fortunate to practice in Kelowna, one of the best places in the world to live. His family truly enjoys the Okanagan lifestyle, and in the summer, they can be found on the golf course or on the water, skiing, boarding, or wakesurfing. In the winter months, they enjoy skiing and snowboarding at Big White.
