Meet The Team

Dr. Juhee Ko

DMD, MSc, BSc, BA


Hi! I’m Juhee, born in South Korea and educated in Canada and Australia.

Ever since I was young I knew I wanted to be a dentist as clean teeth and healthy, beautiful smiles are my passion.

I moved to Regina for High School and then studied a BSc and BA at McMaster University in Hamilton. Following my passion for Dentistry, I spent 2 years at the University of Toronto researching and working with Sjogren’s syndrome patients before finally deciding to obtain my dental degree from the University of Sydney in 2015. Of all the places I’ve lived Canada is my favourite so it was an easy decision to come back and work. I have called Calgary home ever since.

Bio Coming Soon.

Hi! I’m Juhee, born in South Korea and educated in Canada and Australia.

Ever since I was young I knew I wanted to be a dentist as clean teeth and healthy, beautiful smiles are my passion.

I moved to Regina for High School and then studied a BSc and BA at McMaster University in Hamilton. Following my passion for Dentistry, I spent 2 years at the University of Toronto researching and working with Sjogren’s syndrome patients before finally deciding to obtain my dental degree from the University of Sydney in 2015. Of all the places I’ve lived Canada is my favourite so it was an easy decision to come back and work. I have called Calgary home ever since.

My joy comes from helping the patients I see become partners in maintaining and improving their oral health and coming up with a tailored treatment plan that works best for each patients unique circumstances. I make it a priority to attend high level continuing education courses throughout the year to ensure that I can provide the best level of care for my patients.

I’m a firm believer that prevention is the best medicine but when the time comes for treatment, I strive to maintain a compassionate, caring and low stress environment.

I’m also fluent in Korean and English.

Most of my free time is spent with my husband and my daughter! We love travelling and exploring new places locally and abroad. I look forward to hearing your best recommendations.
