Dr. Jason Likes To Jam With His Fam When He’s Not At The Office


Many of my hours are spent at MAK Dental in Edmonton, helping patients of all ages achieve stunning smiles that can last a lifetime. The great part about my job is that it doesn’t seem like work at all. I love the time spent with patients like you … that includes getting to know you, gaining a deep understanding of how you want to look and feel, and turning your vision into a reality.

I wouldn’t change a thing. Giving the gift of a healthy smile is extremely rewarding … and never gets boring! Seeing my patients smile when they look in the mirror gives me goosebumps.

But believe it or not, there are times I sneak out of the office! In this blog, I’ll let you know how I spend some of my downtime – with my friends and family.  

Winter is one of my favourite seasons. I like frolicking in the snow … from building snowmen to toboggan rides! If you bundle up and keep moving around, it’s possible to stay warm in our Edmonton climate. During the summer, I enjoy going for bike rides and stopping to embrace nature with a picnic.

While spending time with my kids, Nirali and Sohil, I can’t help but be happy. Their smiles and laughter are infectious. They find enjoyment and fun in any situation. And did you know … they’re avid musicians? We love experimenting with our synthesizers and drum machines during our jam sessions!

Speaking of music … let me share a memory of one of the best concerts I ever went to. I was in London, England in July 2011 when I saw English band Portishead at Alexandra’s Palace. They rocked the house! And what a venue … this historic site, which first opened in 1873, was just as jaw-dropping as the entertainment itself. The views of London are breathtaking!

I’m a bit of a “Ringer.” That’s because I was always a fan of The Lord of the Rings. I read J. R. R. Tolkien’s books and was amazed by how well director Peter Jackson recreated the imagery from them. If you’re unfamiliar with the story, you need to add it your collection – right away!

As a traveller, I’d love to see more of the world, especially Eastern Asia or South America.

I’m happily married to Rita. We met in 1996 when I was studying at the University of Alberta. She needed to borrow my homework … I’m sure glad I lent it to her!

Now that you know more about me, I encourage you to share a bit about yourself during your next visit to our practice. As your dentist in Edmonton, I’m always interested in your stories!

Yours in excellent dental health,Dr. Mary Ann Kuharchuk and Dr. Jason Nijjer, General and Cosmetic Dentist in Edmonton
