Dr. Schiffner’s passion in dentistry is treating families and developing a lasting relationship centred around her patients’ comprehensive dental health with a focus on prevention and education, starting at a patient’s young age of 1.
She enjoys all aspects of general dentistry and is specifically experienced in children’s dentistry, crowns, bridges, fillings, sedation dentistry, and Invisalign®.
Dr. Schiffner became a member of the Calgary District and Dental society last year. She was elected as an executive member and was re-elected this year. She appreciates the opportunity to continue to learn about the latest trends in dentistry and connect with her peers.
She participates in outreach and speaking, as well as educating children in our local Calgary schools. She also works with mom’s groups, discussing healthy habits for expecting and new moms, along with their newborns.
Dr. Schiffner grew up in a small town in Northern California. She went to college in San Diego, where she completed her B.S. in Biology. For dental school, she attended the University of the Pacific, Arthur A. Dugoni School of Dentistry, in San Francisco. She then moved to Dallas, Texas, where she practiced general dentistry before she moved to Calgary to be with her husband.
In her free time, Dr. Schiffner enjoys spending time with her husband and son, exploring what Calgary has to offer. She also enjoys travelling; her most recent trips have been to St. Lucia, Egypt, Australia and Costa Rica.
