Dr. Tanya Khattra
Dr. Mark Haminishi
Dr. Mark is absolutely thrilled to join the Sierra Springs Dental team!
He grew up just outside of Vancouver, BC and attended the University of British Columbia where he received a BSc in Nutritional Sciences. After his time at UBC, he moved to Boston and attended Boston University Goldman School of Dental Medicine where he earned his DMD. After attaining his DMD, Dr. Mark moved from Boston to Pittsburgh, PA for a three-year Orthodontic residency at the University of Pittsburgh. Once he became an Orthodontist, he stayed in Pittsburgh and worked as an associate to gain more experience and hone his skills. In 2014, he and his wife decided it was time to return to Canada. He completed the Canadian dental specialty exam, obtained his Fellowship with the Royal College of Dentists of Canada, and became a registered specialist in Alberta.
Dr. Mark is a top Invisalign provider and focuses his practice on clear aligner therapy to digitally customize each and every smile. He’s the founder of Aligner Mentor, an Invisalign-coaching platform where he mentors and teaches dentists how to perform Invisalign treatment more effectively and efficiently in their own practices.
Dr. Mark is a volunteer with the Smiles 4 Canada organization and he volunteers with the Burn’s Memorial Fund. Twice a month he also works at the Alberta Children’s Hospital as a member of the Cleft Palate Team. In his spare time, he enjoys running, golfing, and playing soccer and volleyball.
Dr. Mark has two rambunctious kiddos at home: a daughter obsessed with unicorns and dinosaurs, and a son who wants whatever his big sister has. He’s married to his high school sweetheart who is both a scientist and a high school teacher. As a family, you’ll find them roaming around Costco for free samples, chasing the peacocks at the Calgary Zoo, getting their hands wet at the Telus Spark, or hopping ride to ride at Calaway Park!
He and the team are excited to meet you and answer all the questions you might have about straightening your teeth.
