Dr. Milena Murgas, DMD
Dr. Milena Murgas first had the inspiration to enter the field of dentistry as early as the age of 6 when visiting a children’s dental office back in her own country Colombia. Her passion and motivation let her pursue her dream and after high school attended the Metropolitan University where she earned her degree as a Dentist in 1999.
After serving the community in rural areas for one year, she understood people’s needs in the restorative field, and giving back a beautiful smile to them is the reward she always wanted as part of her philosophy. Soon after, she decided to continue her education in Prosthodontics and Dr. Murgas graduated as a specialist in Oral Rehabilitation in 2006.
After moving to Canada, Dr. Murgas started to work towards her Canadian license but in the process, she became a Dental Hygienist in 2015 and worked in the field for 5 years.
This experience motivated her and helped her to reinforce her love for dentistry and in 2020 was granted a chair at The University of Manitoba for the International Dental Degree Program (IDDP) and graduated as a Doctor in Dental Medicine in 2022.
Dr. Murgas enjoys working in all aspects of dentistry and she offers a wider range of services for all ages. In addition to general dentistry, she also offers full mouth restoration, crowns, complete and partial dentures, smile design, and teeth whitening, ensuring that her clients have a one-stop-shop for all their dental needs.
