I am Dr. Ioana Sovarel. I am a general dentist and have been practicing dentistry in Edmonton and St Albert for 8 years. I've graduated at the Dental School of Bucharest Romania in 2001, completed one year of residency studies at the same University and then moved to Canada. In 2007, I graduated Faculty of Dentistry at University of Alberta. I have worked as an associate untill 2012 when I've decided to establish in the lovely community of St Albert and become the owner of Family Dental. I was delighted to meet again many of may previous patients since Family Dental was the first office I worked at after my graduation. My sister and I enjoy practicing dentistry in this community and as a commitment to our patients we strive to employ new techniques and technology that make modern dentistry successful. I know the power of a beautiful smile and I have absolute respect for function of the dental area. I also understand the different expectations patient have and I wish to help by giving you the tool of understanding when making decisions about your treatment.

I am also a mother and a wife. I know what a busy lifestyle means and how important your time can be. My wish is to provide service for you in a reliable and efficient manner.

Thank you for taking a moment to know me. I would very much want to get to know you!
