Member of the Canadian Dental Association. Member of the Calgary Dental District Society. Member of the Alberta Dental Association and College.
Born and raised in Red Deer, Alberta. My father trained in Germany as a cabinet maker. I spent many happy hours in my father’s workshop growing up. He instilled in me the importance of honesty and beautiful craftsmanship. I have always enjoyed working with my hands and so, for me, dentistry was a great fit.
I graduated from the University of Alberta, Faculty of Dentistry in 1996. This was the beginning of my love of learning about dentistry and its many facets. I served as a Captain in the Canadian Armed Forces and I am indebted to my superiors for the support and mentorship I received there. They taught me the importance of quality over quantity and to “Take it slow, do it right.“ After completing my 4-year commitment, my wife, Dr. Jodi Prichard, and I moved to her home town of Calgary to start our own practice and a family. I am very grateful to our very skilled team and our truly wonderful patients for 16 wonderful years at Enhance Dental Care.

Metro Dental Care is passionate about children’s dentistry. Many of our staff are busy working parents just like you. While we want the best for our children’s dental health, it can be hard to know just where to start. That’s why our philosophy is to make children’s dentistry fun for the kids and convenient for their caregivers.
It starts when you book your first appointment. Our office offers extended hours during evenings and weekends. This way, your children don’t have to miss school or extracurricular activities, and you don’t have to miss work to keep their appointments. You and your children will be greeted with friendly smiles upon arrival. Parents can relax in a waiting area with all the comforts of home while your little ones are happily occupied in our children’s play area.
Dentists can be intimidating to young children, but not here. Our staff is patient, caring and specially trained in handling young children and making their dental visits fun. We’ll make sure that young teeth stay healthy and that good dental habits are developed. We recommend that a child begin dentist visits at three years old. We find that many of our youngest patients actually enjoy coming for dental appointments more than many adults!
Every parent wants to teach good dental hygiene habits to their children so they can have a healthy smile for life. Aspen Spring’s specialists in children’s dentistry make this responsibility easy and fun. Contact us today to set up an appointment for your child with our office.
We also hold Pampered Parent Day every Friday where we have an ECE on staff to entertain your kids while they wait or you get your work done.
This means seeing our hygienists on a regular schedule to make sure that nothing bad happens, and if something is happening, to catch it as early as possible. This service is all that most people need to keep it healthy! This keeps the dentistry on your schedule and it keeps the cost of dentistry to a minimum (an ounce of prevention, a pound of cure, etc.).
Keep it pretty!
We’re also showing our regular hygiene patients how proud we are of them by offering them free whitening FOR LIFE! Once you go through the initial whitening process, we are gifting touch up whitening kits to all of our patients who keep to their schedule, FOR LIFE! That gold star is so much nicer when it’s shiny and bright!
Whether it’s for an important event like your wedding or it’s just time to get the smile you want, cosmetic dentistry provides you with the opportunity to tweak and perfect your look. At Metro Dental Care, Dr. Jeff Chen and his professional dental team offer Calgary cosmetic dentistry techniques and procedures for a healthy and beautiful smile.
There are many reasons why someone may be shy about smiling big for the camera. Teeth get discoloured over time, and wear-and-tear can leave chips and cracks. Sometimes tooth decay and other dental issues have also left their mark in highly-visible silver fillings. But you don’t need to be self-conscious about your smile. Today, small aesthetic issues like these are easy and affordable to treat.

Aaaaarrgghh…I need to fix it!
Unfortunately, bad things happen to good teeth. We can fix almost anything these days, but the question is, what’s the right solution for you? Is your priority to make the repair as natural looking as possible? Is it to keep the cost to a minimum for the time being? Or is it to just get in even a temporary solution, as fast as possible, so you can get through a particularly busy time? There is no right or wrong answer, there is only the right answer for you. Let us help you find the solution that best fits into your life right now.
Home renovation? Smile renovation!
This is where we put on our mouth architect hat, to give you the smile that you’ve always wanted. Are we recreating a smile you had when you were 20? Perhaps a smile you’ve never had but always wanted? Like all renovation projects, it is so important that we find out exactly what it is that you want. At some point, we may well talk about dental implants, ceramics, dentures, even orthodontics. But ultimately, they are just tools for building a mouth that is comfortable, beautiful and durable. We would be happy to sit down with you and talk about all the things that modern dental science makes possible, and how we can bring your vision to life!
