Meet Dr. Chin
Hello and Welcome to Nuera Dental Center.
For 30 years , since graduating from the University of Manitoba in 1989 , I’ve been dedicated to developing and cultivating a trusted and valued relationship with my patients. It is through taking the time to listen and understand their values , needs , preferences and goals that I can best partner with my patients to develop the best treatment decisions for them. I truly feel that a fully informed patient makes the best oral health care decisions that optimally suits them. Encouraging my patients to be partners in their care has given my patients a feeling of empowerment over their own oral health !
I moved to Calgary ( from Winnipeg ) with my family in 2001 and I have been in private practice ever since . I’ve been told many times that my warm, easy going , and humorous chair side manners puts all of my patients at ease. My commitment to excellence in dentistry , attention to detail and desire to constantly improve my clinical skills through continuing dental education is what many of my patients enjoy most about seeing me.
I’ve been happily married for close to 29 years and I have 2 young adult daughters. In my spare time , I’m passionate about all types of fishing , cooking , traveling , running , biking and spending time with my
As a proud member of Team Diabetes Canada for 7 years , I’ve made a huge commitment to the Canadian Diabetes Association (CDA) in its fight against diabetes. I’ve personally raised over $20,000 for Team Diabetes and the CDA through personal fund raising efforts. Performing marathons , 1/2 marathons and hikes
in Brazil , Scotland and Peru in my fund raising efforts on behalf of the CDA has allowed me to educate and promote the activities and efforts of the CDA to fight diabetes .
I’m proud to be a member of the Calgary District Dental Society , the Alberta Dental Association , and the Canadian Dental Association and am a certified general dentist .
Come by our sparkling new Nuera Dental Center for a tour , visit or just to say Hi ! I’m looking forward to meeting you !
I graduated the Dental Assisting Program from KDM Dental College in 2012. After working in the culinary industry for 6 years before that, I have finally found my niche! Being a dental assistant is such a fulfilling and rewarding position. I love getting to know all of my patients, ensuring their comfort during their appointments and seeing through the treatment to completion. Look at all your wonderful smiles!
I have been working with Dr. David Chin since April of 2015. I’m so glad to have found this practice and work with a warm and caring team. There is a great sense of accomplishment and pride providing exceptional dental care with Dr. Chin. We always put the patients first!
I have been with Nuera Dental Center just a short while, assisting Dr. Chin, but already feel part of the warm family they have created with patients and staff alike! There is always laughter whether with patients or amongst our team. Happy people are more likely to smile, and I love being a part of making that happen for our patients. It’s a wonderful atmosphere! Patients feel relaxed here, the massage chairs help I’m sure. It only takes a few minutes to chat to make our patients feel as comfortable as possible, spending time to explain treatment options to maintain good oral health. I’ve even been known to hold the hand of a nervous patient. I look forward to meeting you and working towards your future dental health goals.
I was born in Romania and came to Canada in 2001. I have been a dental hygienist since 2006. I have addressed the patient’s needs in the field of dental hygiene, collaborating with Dr. David Chin for the past 8 years. I love working in this office with our wonderful patients and skilled, yet always entertaining colleagues. I have taken extensive continuing education for periodontal laser therapy as well as advance periodontal therapy in Fort Lauderdale, FL. I also have been certified in the application of local anesthetic for patients who experience sensitivity with their dental cleanings.
I enjoy taking time to go hiking, camping and skiing, or just a simple drive to enjoy the beautiful surroundings we have here in Western Canada.
My “journey” is joyful and fulfilling!
I have been practising dental hygiene for 20 years. Since February of 2015, I have really enjoyed working at Nuera Dental Center. I know that I have found a wonderful team environment to work in. It is a great pleasure to work with Dr. David Chin, he is a kind, patient dentist who endeavours to understand his patients’ needs. His dentistry is exemplary! Over the years, I have had experience working with patients of all ages and always enjoy meeting new people.
I have 3 wonderful children at home whom I love spending time with when I am not at work. In my spare time, I enjoy just reading a good book and listening to good music. We also enjoy spending time as a family. Our favourite vacation spot right now is Kelowna, BC, where we get to pick our fruits, eat cherry pies, and spend time in the water!
I look forward to seeing you at your next dental health appointment.
I was born and raised in Lower Mainland BC and have lived in Calgary since 2008. I did my training for dental hygiene in Hamilton, ON and graduated in 2007. I have been with Dr. Chin since the spring of 2008. I provide the best dental care and education when I build long-lasting relationships with my patients.
In my spare time, I can be found in the kitchen cooking up a storm or lost in a book. I enjoy traveling whether it’s for leisure or re-connecting with my large extended family.
Meet Alice – Business Manager
It is my pleasure to welcome you to Nuera Dental Center. As the Business Manager at Nuera , I take great pride in providing a truly great dental experience to all of our patients. Taking care of our fantastic patients every day by delivering excellent service in a warm caring environment is what brings our loyal patients back. I want to help take away any of the stress associated with coming to the dentist’s office. Whether it is a genuine fear of dentistry or communicating with dental insurance companies on the patient’s behalf … I’m here to help alleviate these concerns.
I have worked in the dental community for over 19 years here in Calgary and have had the privilege of attending extended education courses at the University of Calgary and the Las Vegas Institute of Advanced Dentistry as well as the management course with Dale Carnegie Training Center. I started with Dr David Chin at Nuera Dental Center in January 2013. I’m proud of the incredible dentistry we provide and the care you receive from our whole team. One thing is consistent. We feel like family! How many dental offices do you hear laughing and sharing of our family lives ? We come to work to fulfill our passion for great dentistry, but , also to keep connecting with our patients and each other.
Before dentistry I worked in the travel industry. It started with Wardair Canada, Canadian Airlines, Pan Pacific Hotels International and more recently Westjet here in Calgary. I gained a strong sense of Customer Service from all those years of Guest care. I have lived in Toronto, Edmonton, Vancouver and even 3 years in London and Manchester, UK. I love to travel. More recently I have discovered the love of “Glamping”. Travelling with my amazing boyfriend, our dogs and beautiful Fifth Wheel, I am seeing and continue to see North America, town by town, character by character. It’s magnificent!
I couldn’t be prouder of my two beautiful adult children. Both currently in University. I’m sure they have taught me far more than I to them. They keep me grounded! Aren’t we always learning?
I love to cook, garden and exercise by walking in my growing neighborhood. I can’t wait to meet you, take care of your dental health and share our stories! Come and join our family!
Meet Christy – Business Administrator
I really enjoy working at Nuera Dental Center because I love connecting with people face to face everyday.

In my spare time, I enjoy taking my dogs for walk, listening to music, camping, fishing, reading, and hanging out with wonderful family and friends.
Meet Elijah - Business Administrator
My interest in the medical field, and unyielding passion to provide service to the people, and the community led me to attend Bow Valley College to become a Dental Business Administrator. I’ve been a part of Dr. Chin’s team since the Spring of 2017, and helping everyone with their clerical needs - anything to make your visit here with us as pleasant and smooth as possible.
On my own time, I love to enjoy the nature by any means; from road trips, hiking, sightseeing, and for one day to explore the vast wilderness of the world. I listen to music regularly (and if I could run it on the background like a soundtrack in a movie, I would). I’m also a curator of vintage items filled with histories - ranging from militaria and folklores garments to any oddities of different eras.
Helpful and Compassionate
“I am always impressed by Dr. Chin’s professional understanding and skill. On my last rather difficult appointment he was both helpful and compassionate.
The whole staff is welcoming and accepting.
