Meet Dr. Prabhdeep Chahal
Dr. Prabhdeep Chahal is the creator of The Smile Team Pediatric Dentistry. She was born in Winnipeg, Manitoba and moved to Calgary with her family when she was 15 years old. She has always worked with children, whether it was as a camp counsellor, a lifeguard and swim instructor, or a pediatric dentist! She is incredibly passionate about giving the children of our community as much support as we can to help them thrive in all aspects of their life.
Dr. Prabhdeep has had extensive training to become a leader in her field. After finishing an honours degree in Biochemistry at the University of Saskatchewan in 2003, she completed dental school at the University of Manitoba in 2007. She then practiced general dentistry, seeing both adults and children in Calgary and Ontario.
Five years and two kids later, she decided to pursue her passion for pediatric dentistry and began teaching pediatric dentistry at Western Ontario. She then completed a rigorous residency program at the State University of New York at Buffalo and became a board certified pediatric dentist in both Canada and the United States.
Dr. Prabhdeep continues to learn the most innovative techniques in pediatric dentistry and is an active part of the dental community in Calgary. She currently serves as the President of the Calgary and District Gnathology Study Club and is a member of many other professional organizations in Calgary and across North America.
In her spare time you can find Dr. Prabhdeep staying active with her husband and 3 young children. She loves to hike, swim, and dance!
Hey there, my name is Kelsey and I am an RDA here at The Smile Team! I graduated from SAIT’s dental assisting program in 2018 and started working directly with Dr. Prabhdeep at the Smile Team. Developing my skills from the beginning in a pediatric clinic has really helped me develop a deep understanding of efficient, compassionate dental care with kids.
Combining my previous experience in swimming and lifeguarding with dental, I’m able to keep the patient, dentist, mom, and dad all afloat! Helping your children overcome their dental anxiety is the most rewarding part of my job. Watching them walk out with confidence and a smile is truly the best feeling. It’s always fun to share a few giggles along the way!
Outside of cleaning teeth, you will find me soaking up the sun, playing baseball, spending time with my friends and family or camping with my husband. I look forward to meeting you at your next appointment and welcoming you into our Smile Team family!
Hi, my name is Court and I’m the Surgical Coordinator and front end here at the Smile Team! Born and raised in Calgary (a rarity these days) I enjoy playing a role in providing care to kids in our local communities.
After taking my Dental Business Administration program in 2014 and after some time in general dentistry I found a home with Dr. Prabhdeep at the Smile Team and haven’t looked back since! Providing high quality care is very important to me and finding a dentist with a similar philosophy has helped me become a cornerstone of our small but mighty speciality practice.
When I’m not scheduling your next appointment I’m enjoying time spent staying active, checking out local restaurants and shopping for the coolest running shoes. Need any recommendations!?
Hello, my name is Barb and I am the New-Patient Coordinator here at the Smile Team. Originally from Winnipeg, my husband and I moved to Calgary and the beautiful Rockies after we got married.
After many years working in childcare I decided to take my Dental Business Administrators program and found my home at the Smile Team Pediatric Dentistry. Having experience in general practice, orthodontics and now pediatrics, I love being able to introduce patients to Dr. Prabhdeep and a dental team I know will take good care of them and provide quality treatment as they grow up.
When I’m not multitasking several calls with finesse, I’m answering the call of the mountains and hoisting my family into the van for some adventures in the Canadian wilderness. There’s always something to do when you can kayak, camp, paddleboard, ski, and bike just a short distance from our front doors. Indoor Barb enjoys singing in the choir and reading a good book!

In her Spare time Talia loves to read, cook, DIY, travel, go for a drive, listen to good music or watch a movie with friends and family. She loves to spend as much time as she can in the sun.
Talia’s secret talent is that she can eat a meal at a restaurant then go home and figure out how to replicate it without a recipe.
Her favourite sport to watch is hockey . Her favourite sports to play are rugby, soccer and competitive swimming.
Her favourite Paw Patrol pup is Everest.
Talia’s favourite childhood movie is Anastasia and Indiana Jones. She loved the adventure’s they went on and the places they got to see.
Her favourite superhero is Black Widow because she has no super powers and still holds her own with the rest of the Avengers.
We asked Talia why she chose to work in pediatrics. Her response was, “I grew up teaching kids swimming lessons, or how to play soccer. Nothing beats being around kids all day, they make working fun. If I can do my part and make a difficult thing like dentistry a positive fun experience for a child it’s just the best feeling in the world.”
