Meet Dr. Janet Kan
Improving Lives with Dental Care
For me, being a dentist means providing a caring atmosphere for my patients. I enjoy partnering with them to achieve their oral health goals.
We serve Calgary’s complex, diverse community and each person has their own stories to share. Our conversations foster a bond and I find I learn from my patients.
It’s essential each person understands their unique dental health situation and all options for addressing issues. I spend time talking with patients, providing information to ensure they are able to make informed decisions about treatment.
My goal is to make visiting our office as pleasant as possible, especially for people who are nervous about seeing the dentist. Here, we strive to help people work through their fears, overcome past negative experiences, and learn that today’s dentistry can be more of a pleasant experience. Nothing is more rewarding than when someone tells me that their procedure was a good experience!
Our team at Rideau Dental on 4th Street is composed of amazing & experienced people who are friendly, warm, and truly love what they do. Their compassion and openness extends to each patient and their families: we are here to listen to people, respect their concerns, and work with them to develop beautifully healthy smiles.
Education and Continuing Education
Dentistry is an exciting field: there are ongoing developments in techniques, along with new materials and technology. These advancements mean new options, more comfortable care, and stronger results for patients.
Beyond the Office
I grew up in northern Manitoba and Winnipeg, and then moved to Grande Prairie, AB after graduating from dental school. Now I’m enjoying living in Calgary: it’s an amazing city and I’m happy to call it home!
Outside of work, my favorite times are spent with family and friends. I also love travelling and enjoy exploring new places and learning about other cultures.
