Meet the Kopec Dental team! We want to ensure your dental experience is a pleasant one. Learn more about our team members – and learn that we’re not so scary after all!
Dr. Perry Kopec, DMD
Dr. Kopec graduated from the University of Manitoba in his home-town of Winnipeg and promptly moved out west. He has practiced dentistry in Calgary for 32 years. Strangely enough, he knew at the ripe age of 4 years old that he wanted to practice dentistry and once he had his first visit at age 5, that confirmed it! Dr. Kopec loves to restore teeth as close to their natural position, shape, size and colour as possible. His continuous goal is competency in all areas of oral surgery and periodontics. What Dr. Kopec appreciates most about his work is seeing the difference in his patients’ eyes after teeth restoration. Bringing out the confidence and the sparkle in his patients rewards his work beyond measure.
Dr. Kopec is currently pursuing his helicopter pilot license!
We asked Dr. Kopec what he would be if he were not a dentist. His response: “A dentist”.
Heather, Registered Dental Assistant Level II
Heather graduated from Holland College in PEI after growing up in New-Brunswick. She has been by Dr. Kopec’s side for 22 years. Her decision to enter dentistry came out of the pressure to choose a specialization for college! She continued with dentistry and intrigued by specialty areas like orthodontics.
Heather loves to spend time with her boys!
If Heather were not a dental assistant, she would be an audiologist.
Chelsea, Registered Dental Hygienist
Chelsea graduated from Camosun College in Victoria, BC. She has been practicing hygiene for 7 years. As a kid, she spent lots of time in and out of dental offices with her braces. Because of the positive experience she had, she knew she wanted to become a hygienist.
She loves to run, play with her girls, and go on family camping trips!
If Chelsea were not a RDH, she would be a pharmacist.
Dallas, Registered Dental Assistant
Dallas graduated from Holland College in PEI. She grew up moving around Canada, but has landed back in her birth place. Her uncle is a dentist, and her mom is a dental assistant, so her interest in dentistry came about naturally. She had braces as a kid, but unfortunately had a poor experience. This inspired her to educate others and to help them take care of their own teeth and health. She loves to see her patients smile!
She loves spending time outdoors camping and hiking. If she can’t get outside, you will be sure to find her in spin class!
If Dallas were not a dental assistant, she would be a nurse.
