Smileville Dental team Dr. Arohi

Dr. Arohi Talwar, DDS

Dentist

I believe that every leader has to lead with example, be an excellent communicator and exhibit an ability to adjust with every evolving situation. As the principal dentist of Smileville Dental, I strive to promote oral health and prevention with ongoing support and hard work of my fabulous team of dedicated professionals.

I am a graduate of Dalhousie University in Halifax and I feel honoured to have won the award for Superior Clinical Skills and Patient Compassion. Dedicated to the newest advancements in dentistry, I keep myself up to date with the latest technologies available. My team and I provide Calgary families with the most advanced and comprehensive dental care. I focus on creating treatment plans to maintain and restore oral health of our patients in addition to monitoring growth and development of teeth and jaws. I believe that Dentists are artists. Combining this trait with compassion and expertise, it is essential to provide personalized care and be concerned about how the patient feels during procedures. I keep the conversation in the simplest terms to reduce patient anxiety as much as possible.

I am a proud supporter of the University of Calgary Dinos and passionate about providing dental care to the current and future athletes. I am an avid Calgary Flames fan, and in my free time, I love watching ice hockey, going hiking and spending time with my family.

Shefali Marwaha, BBA

Managing Partner

I have been often asked what my organization’s biggest asset is. I have always been a strong believer of the fact that the employees are any company’s biggest asset. As a leader, you provide training and direction, but it is a team’s collective effort that helps achieve the organization’s strategic goal. It is your job to prioritize your employees, suppliers, business partners and clients over corporate demands, and success will follow.

I have a Bachelor’s Degree in Business Administration. When I was in the university, I always had an entrepreneurial spirit and took keen interest in business and financial management. I became associated with Smileville Dental as the Managing Partner since its inception in 2018. I have been involved in the corporate planning and execution leading a team of qualified dental professionals. My team and I actively participate in various community support initiatives and are proud supporters of University of Calgary Dinos.

When I am not at work, I enjoy reading a good book and listening to music. I also love to watch tennis and ice hockey. But, at the core, I continue to pursue opportunities, never stop learning and strive for success while keeping things simple.

Dr. Zimrisa Loga, DDS

Associate Dentist

I received my Bachelor of Science degree from Mount Royal University in Calgary. Shortly after, I moved to Edmonton to pursue dentistry and obtained my Doctor of Dental Surgery degree from the University of Alberta. I am very excited to be back home in Calgary and closer to the mountains!

I believe that patient education is key when it comes to dental visits. My goal is to maintain a transparent relationship with all my patients and to make every experience comfortable and enjoyable while providing my patients with the best dental care. I enjoy all aspects of general dentistry and welcome patients of all ages.

I am very passionate about giving back to the community through volunteer work. I have provided free dental care to locals in remote villages in Peru through a dental mission trip. This was a truly humbling experience and it is something that I would like to do again in the future. While in school, I was an avid volunteer with the SHINE dental clinic that focused on providing free dental care to Edmonton’s inner city population. In my spare time, I enjoy being in the outdoors, hiking, cooking and spending time with my family.

It has been my pleasure being apart of Smileville Dental since the very beginning. Through hard work and determination, I was promoted to the role of Clinical Supervisor in less than a year.

Registered Dental Assistant Level II

I have been a Registered Dental Assistant for about 15 years now. I enjoy educating people about their oral health. It is extremely rewarding to see people who are initially very afraid to be in a dental office become confident and elated to see us.

I have lived in Calgary for about 30 years and I love it here. I could not imagine living anywhere else! In my spare time, I enjoy cooking, watching Netflix, and spending time with my sons and friends.
