Due to the ongoing situation with the novel coronavirus (COVID-19), on March 17, 2020 the Alberta Dental Association and College issued a mandatory suspension of all non-emergency dental treatment and services.
The clinic is temporarily closed until further notice but our phone line will remain open to take calls to assess the emergency conditions and help patients. Based on the over the phone assessment, we will advise if we can provide the necessary emergency treatments at our clinic or arrange a referral to a surgical facility nearby. If you are experiencing a dental emergency, please call our clinic at (587) 855-9940 every weekday from 10:00AM to 4:00PM so that we can assist you.
This decision has been made with the health and safety of patients and staff as the main priority. The situation with COVID-19 is constantly evolving and we will continually reassess what we need to do in order to best serve the health and safety of our patients, staff and communities. You may also consider contacting your primary care provider for any other medical needs.
I earned my second dental degree “Doctor of Dental Surgery” from the University of Western Ontario in 2013, prior to that, I obtained my first “Bachelor of Dental Surgery” in 2003.
Dentistry is a lifelong passion. When I was a child, I had the good fortune to be a patient of a dentist who exhibited passion, patience and created a reassuring environment that dispelled my fears. This experience solidified my goal to become a dentist. Today I, too practice dentistry with passion and skill, reassuring and educating patients so they are comfortable and prepared. When working with children, I have developed a special approach using humor to reduce their anxieties while introducing them to the clinic environment and performing procedures. My gift to others is excellent oral health, strong teeth, and a beautiful smile. I am continuously learning new technologies and procedures through attending conferences and registering for up to date courses. I am a member of the Canadian Dental Association, Alberta Dental Association and College, Academy of General Dentistry and Academy of GP Orthodontics
