Meet The Welcome Smile Team

At Welcome Smile, our team members love their jobs because they find it rewarding to see how much of a difference a smile transformation can make to their patient’s life. These changes can impact both the business and personal lives of clients. We all take pride in the satisfaction we get when we know that you can smile confidently without feeling self-conscious about your teeth.

While our team all have their own areas of expertise, each team member draws on the strengths and experiences of the other to ensure all patients receive the most well-rounded level of care available. Our Dentists are all trained in Canada and have received Honors upon their graduation.

Our entire team travels regularly to conferences and institutes to bring back the latest advances in cosmetic, implant and general dentistry. They are committed to their ongoing education ….. and to ensuring that whatever your needs are, everything is safe, comfortable and a proven benefit to you and your dental health needs.

“We want our patients to experience our gentle and calm approach to dental health. To us, it is about helping you to take care of your teeth for a lifetime and feel great about your smile. We want you to feel that we are approachable so that we can help you with your dental issues.”

Dr. Kellen Smith

Jenn – Dental Administrator / Hygiene coordinator

I have been a dental receptionist/administrator for 15 years now, and still enjoying it every day. I joined the Welcome Smile Dental team 4 years ago on a mat leave position and never left! I truly do take pride in making sure all our patients feel welcome and ensuring all their dental needs are taken care of. Now that my children are all grown up, my husband and I are trying to stay active and do as much travel as possible. I look forward to meeting you and assisting you through all your dental desires.

Candice – RDA II / Treatment coordinator

I have been a dental assistant for 12 years now, having graduated from Columbia College in 2006, when I was paired up with Dr. Kellen Smith as his very first assistant. We reunited in 2012 here at Welcome Smile Dental and I enjoy working in all aspects of the practice from chairside assisting to administrative duties, and wherever else I can be of assistance to the patients. Outside the office, I love to travel, go camping in Montana, and spend time with friends, family, and my Frenchie Frankie.

Jamie – RDA II

One of the few born and raised, native Calgarians! I graduated from the KDM dental assisting program and now have over 15 years’ experience working in the dental industry. My favourite part of my job is catching up with patients and finding out what’s happening in their lives. It is important for me to build that rapport with our patients to make them feel at ease and comfortable in our practice. I also enjoy working for a skilled dentist who stays on top of continuing education and cutting edge technology. Outside the office, nothing fills me with more joy than my French bulldog, Tony. I also try to volunteer as much as possible for causes close to my heart, typically involving children and animals.

Jasmin - RDA II

I was raised in Edmonton where I graduated from NAIT as a dental assistant in 2008. Calgary has been my home now for 7 years. My favorite thing about being a RDA is seeing a smile on a patients face when all their work is done! A healthy smile makes a happy smile! My favorite past time which I love is traveling and seeing different cultures and hearing different languages. Otherwise spending time with my friends and family is where you shall find me on most days.

Tiffany – RDH

I’ve been a hygienist now for 7 years and I love it! Born and raised in Calgary, however, I completed my hygiene training in Toronto. What I find so amazing about this job is seeing the same patients regularly and really getting to know them personally. Outside of work, I’m usually spending time with my rescue dog, BOB, as well as friends and family. I love traveling to new exotic places and trying restaurants from around the world. I hope we can share some good stories when we meet.

Vanessa - RDH

I am a born and raised Calgarian who has always had a passion for dental health. After working as a Certified Dental Assistant for three years, I realized I wanted to pursue Dental Hygiene, which lead me to complete my training in Ottawa.

I am committed to ensuring my clients are provided with a high level of care, respect, and comfort. One of my favorite parts about being a Dental Hygienist is connecting with and getting to know people every day. I enjoy spending any spare time with my family, fiancé, and two wonderful dogs, Bella and Bentley. I take pride in being part of such a caring, welcoming, and patient-centered team.

I am looking forward to meeting you!

Our Friendly Dental Team Looks Forward To Meeting You and Your Family!
