Relationships – We care about you. We believe relationships take time………and good, honest communication. Our team commits to taking the time necessary to get to know YOU, LISTEN to your concerns and provide valuable EDUCATION so you can make an INFORMED DECISION about your oral health.

Choice – I believe everyone should know all the options for their oral health and be able to choose for themselves without judgment. There will never be any pressure, just options.

Comprehensive Care – As a mouth doctor, I will not only provide a thorough check of your teeth, it is also my job to check your head and neck for lumps and bumps, provide an oral cancer screen in your mouth and throat, assess your airway and sleep, check your bite and jaw joint, and completely check your gum and bone health. This is all part of a healthy mouth leading to a healthy body. We will always be thorough and go above and beyond. Let’s face it, if we as dentists don’t check and monitor this head and neck area of your body, who will??

Advanced Technology/Techniques and Quality Materials – My mantra has always been staying current and use the best. And when you come to visit us you will see we use the most current technologies available including digital x-ray, lasers, digital impressions, digital photography, ozone machines, and the list goes on. – There are literally thousands of dental products and materials to choose from varying degrees of cost and quality. My belief is I am only going to use the very best, long-lasting and biocompatible materials for my patients. This is in line with my belief of promoting health and longevity in the dental work we do.
Staying Current and Life Long Learning Dentistry, just like medicine, is constantly changing. Every month there is new information and advancements. As a result, I spend an average of 3-4 days per month in a classroom, learning about the best dentistry has to offer because I believe my patients deserve nothing less.

Quality care is a team effort. It takes an entire team to run a quality dental clinic. I am so proud and grateful to have the team I have. They truly are just great people. They are honest, caring and extremely knowledgeable and well trained at what they do.

So thank you for taking the time to read what I consider to be the coles notes version of what we are all about at Chestermere Smiles Dental. If you are looking for a caring group of people who work hard every day to provide excellent, up-to-date, health-based, personalized care, then we are that clinic and we truly look forward to meeting you!!

Together we will  support our patients with a combination of therapeutic and cosmetic treatments.  My approach is to enhance your existing beauty while maintaining a natural look. I want you to feel like the best version of yourself.

My Name is Jenny and I am always the first face you see when you walk into Chestermere Smiles Dental. I will always greet you like family here in our cozy office. A little about myself, I have been in the dental field for over 15 years. I graduated from Columbia College dental assisting program many many years ago. As the years went on, I took on a leading role in the dental administrative world. People always have questions about dentistry, and I can provide you with all kinds of knowledge about your treatment, insurance questions and anything else to help make you smile. I am a mother of one beautiful daughter and my fur baby Koda Bear the dog. When I am not providing the ultimate care for our patients, I am home crafting up something, or doing some photography. Well, I am into anything that has to do with art and getting creative. Some days I like to hop in my Jeep and just go on a spontaneous camping trip in my free time as well.

To conclude this I would like to welcome you to Chestermere Smiles Dental and look forward to caring for you and your family, and help make your smiles brighter.
