Dr. Rami Khalil – Dentist
Dr. Rami is a proud dentist and owner of Northern Dental Centre. He joined the team as an associate early on during the COVID pandemic and quickly recognized this was the place he wanted to call home. His values align with those of Grande Prairie, having a strong sense of community and passion to live a healthy lifestyle, and this is where he finds himself grounded.
Dr. Rami grew up in London, Ontario and attended Western University. After completing an Honours Bachelor of Science degree in biological and medical sciences he went on to complete his Doctor of Dental Surgery. Having established a general practice in dentistry, Dr. Rami is keen on continuing education and hands-on training to further his knowledge and skills and is passionate about incorporating the latest dental materials and technology to enhance the quality of care he provides to his patients.
Outside of dentistry, Dr. Rami enjoys spending quality time with family and friends, travelling, getting active, and discovering new sushi restaurants. Being relatively new to Grande Prairie, he is excited to meet people in the community and discover the many local ways to explore its great outdoors. Grande Prairie has welcomed him to stay, and he looks forward to welcoming you to Northern Dental Centre.
Dr. Nianmei Chen – Dentist
Dr. Chen is a general dentist and an associate of Northern Dental Centre, bringing a wealth of experience and care to her patients. Dr. Chen was born in Wuhan, China and moved to Canada in 2013 with her husband and son. She attended university in China and first became a dentist in 2003. After working for a year, Dr. Chen went back to university to become an orthodontist and practiced as an orthodontist from 2007 until moving to Canada in 2013.
Being a doctor of some sort was written into Dr. Chen’s life before she was born as both of her parents are surgeons. Dentistry ended up being the perfect fit for her as, like surgeons, there is a lot of hands-on skills, challenges, and great accomplishments to be had. Dr. Chen’s favorite part of her job is seeing the happy faces when a smile has been improved through dentistry or orthodontics.
A rule Dr. Chen sets for herself is to always try to do her best work perfectly and she strives to do that for all her patients. Moving forward in her career, Dr. Chen plans to work towards treating problems associated with TMJ and the connection between occlusion and the muscles.
Outside of the office, Dr. Chen enjoys spending time with her family bike riding and hiking in the beautiful Peace Country, as well as reading and singing.
