Dr. Nikola Vranjes – Dentist
I was born and raised in Ottawa.
I discovered my passion for working with my hands while working at my father’s denture clinic during my summers. I saw my father’s commitment to improve his patients’ eating abilities and their facial appearance and the pride he had in his profession. It inspired me to choose a profession where I could help people and develop relationships.
I started my path towards Dentistry by completing my Bachelor of General Science at the University of Ottawa before completing my Doctor of Dental Surgery at the University of Alberta in 2008.
After finishing dental school, I mentored with Dr. Douglas Harris in Ottawa for two years. My parents and Dr. Harris taught me to treat people with compassion, respect and professionalism, tenets that I strongly believe in. It is from Dr. Harris that I learned “to educate your patients, not only treat their teeth.” I have been practicing in Calgary since 2010.

Dr. Tasha Chrbet – Dentist
I grew up in Calgary and after spending 3 years practising general dentistry in Ottawa, I decided to return to this wonderful city to be closer to my family. I am excited to join the team at Dynamic Dental in Southeast Calgary and make this my new home.
I graduated with an Honours Bachelor of Science in Zoology from the University of Calgary then completed my Doctor of Dental Surgery Degree in 2014 from the University of Alberta School of Medicine and Dentistry. Keeping my knowledge up to date and relevant is very important to me, and I strive to always provide my patients with quality comprehensive care, which is why I strongly believe in continuing education. I have started training with Spear Education to further my skills and knowledge in comprehensive treatment planning and occlusion.
My goal is to make you feel comfortable and at home here while we take care of your dental needs. I encourage you to ask lots of questions so that you can be involved in your care. I believe in presenting you with different options, so that we can make decisions together about what will best achieve your oral health goals.
In my spare time, I enjoy soccer, snowboarding and curling up with a good book. I strive to be gentle, approachable and friendly and I look forward to meeting you and your family.
