Smileville Dental team Dr. Arohi

Dr. Arohi Talwar, DDS


I believe that every leader must 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, MBA

Managing Partner

I have often been 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 Master’s Degree in Business Administration from the Smith School of Business at Queen’s University. 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. Smileville Dental actively participates in various community support initiatives and is a proud sponsor of the 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. Kartheek Dobbala, DDS


My journey into the world of dentistry began with a fascination for the connection between art and science. I grew up in India and moved to the States in 2012. I obtained my Doctor of Dental Surgery (DDS) degree from New York University.

My philosophy in dentistry is to create a warm and inclusive environment and ensuring that patients feel heard, understood, and valued.

Rooted in a belief that staying at the forefront of dental advancements is paramount, I engage in continuous professional development, attending conferences, workshops, and staying up-to-date with the latest research and technologies.

My areas of interest are root canal therapy, surgical extractions, wisdom tooth removals, and placing dental implants. I am also an avid advocate for clear aligner therapies (Invisalign, suresmile) to help my patients benefit from a personalized approach to teeth straightening, where comfort and aesthetics are harmoniously integrated.

In my downtime, I like to read, work out, travel and explore different kinds of food. I look forward to seeing you at your next dental visit!
