Dr. Shaloo Gupta, originally from India, received her DDS from University of Colorado School of Dental Medicine. After practicing for several years in India, she decided to move to Calgary to practice Dentistry. She chose to practice here at East Hills Dental Clinic because of a shared belief in providing state of the art, relationship-based, comprehensive care that is tailored to fit into the lives and budgets of her patients.
She finds the entire practice of dentistry immensely rewarding and enjoys all aspects of it, whether it’s something as simple as restoring a cavity, or a more complex case like a root canal. Dr. Shaloo is a firm believer that a great bedside manner is equally as important as clinical skills.
Dentistry is an ever-changing field, and she continuously strives to be better, updated and to go above and beyond to provide her patients with quality dental care. She is currently a member of the College of Dental Surgeons of Alberta, Canadian Dental Association, the Academy of General Dentistry and American Dental Association. Dr. Shaloo frequently partakes in continuing education to further enhance her skills and to familiarize herself and stay up to date with all new technology. When she gets asked whether she likes her job, her answer is always, “For me, it’s not a job, it’s my passion!”
Outside of dentistry, she enjoys spending time with friends and family. In her free time, you can usually find her outside camping and hiking.
Most importantly, her role as a healthcare professional is to ensure that her top priority is you, the patient. “Well, of course, because to me, it’s not a job, it’s a passion!”
