DR. SAFINA JETHA-KURJI
When the opportunity to open UD Dental presented itself, it felt like my life had come full circle. Born in England, raised in Calgary and educated in Australia, my path to becoming a dentist took me thousands of miles away from home, only to come back to within walking distance of where my undergraduate studies took place. It was while obtaining my Doctor of Dental Surgery degree at the University of Melbourne that my passion for harmonizing the art and science of dentistry came to life. Part of this harmony is finding ways to individualize treatment plans for every patient in order to achieve their oral health goals.
As in all parts of my life, I truly believe we never stop learning as human beings. In dentistry, this drives me to constantly stay updated with the newest developments & technology in this ever-changing progressive field. At UD Dental, we take pride in being able to offer a well-rounded approach to dental care from restoring teeth to improving smiles.
Beyond dentistry, my passion for aesthetics and art extends to all things design-related: interiors, graphics and architecture to name a few! To ground myself, I make time to get on my mat, practice yoga and challenge myself with HIIT workouts with my husband, and my puppy, Fawkes (“Fox”) who loves to join in! Although current circumstances deter me from exploring the world, the next places on my list to visit are Turkey, Spain and Indonesia (for all the delicious food!)
I so look forward to meeting you and learning more about you and your dental goals. Being at the University of Calgary holds so many fond memories for me, and I now hope to create many more while getting to know the people who make up the fabric of this incredible community.
See you soon!
