Bios

Meet Dr. Shikha Hans

Dr. Hans has been a practicing dentist for over 11 years. Her passion for dentistry started immediately after high school where she pursued a dental degree at DAV Dental College in India and received a Bachelor of Dental Science. She soon returned to the University of Alberta, where she completed her degree as Doctor of Dental Surgery (DDS) in 2006. Raised in Calgary, Dr. Hans worked as a dentist in Calgary for 4 years before moving out to the Fraser Valley in 2010 and has been practicing dentistry since in this area.

Dr. Hans has a passion for dentistry, especially in the areas of cosmetic dentistry, restorative dentistry, Invisalign, and root canal treatments. The joy in knowing that her patients’ oral health and comfort are in her hands drives her to provide dental care in a calm and meticulous manner. Dr. Hans not only enjoys dentistry, but enjoys getting to build a personal rapport with each and every patient and their families. Her philosophy is that every patient is a member of the Allwood Dental family and hence treats them as such. Her reason for choosing dentistry as a career was not only due to the fact that the health care field was intriguing, but also because she enjoys working with the general public.

Apart from the dental world, Dr. Hans is mother to two daughters, aged 6 and 1, and a wife to her loving husband, who is also a chartered accountant in the Abbotsford area. She enjoys travelling, spending time with family, and exploring new places.
