Our Doctors

Dr. Geeta Verma

My name is Dr. Geeta Verma. I have lived in Calgary since the age of five. After high school, I attended the University of Alberta, where I completed an undergraduate degree in Genetics in 1995 and then my Doctor of Dental Surgery in 1999. I started my dental career in Edmonton, but soon relocated to Calgary to be closer to family and friends. I worked in Airdrie for 12 years before opening Evanston Family Dental in 2014.

I love meeting new people and want to help you achieve your dental goals. I strive to provide excellent dental care with a gentle touch. I believe that open communication and respect are important factors in creating a positive dental experience. I have been practicing dentistry for 18 years and am a strong advocate for continuing education. I consistently seek to update my dental training by attending national and international courses and conventions. My goal is to provide optimal and comprehensive dental care in a comfortable and gentle manner.

In my spare time, I enjoy reading, playing golf, hiking and spending time with my husband and two children.




Dr. Shideh Barikani

My name is Dr. Shideh Barikani. I graduated from New York University College of Dentistry. Growing up I always wanted to be a dentist and when I was accepted into the dental program at NYU, it was truly a dream come true. Shortly after my graduation I moved back to Calgary, got married and started my career as a dentist. 



I enjoy all aspects of dentistry and I put a high emphasis on providing the best quality care for all patients. In current times, science and technology are improving and changing rapidly, especially in the field of dentistry. My goal is to keep myself up to date by taking continuing education courses and attending various seminars so I can provide better care and treatment for my patients.

I believe in dental disease prevention. Therefore, I always try to educate my patients on how to have better oral hygiene and how to avoid future dental problems. Having good and open communication with patients is essential and I work towards building long lasting relationships with my patients based on trust, honesty and respect.

I speak fluent Farsi and English.

I enjoy spending quality time with my husband, family, and friends. I believe having an active lifestyle has a direct impact in anyone’s happiness and wellbeing. I enjoy outdoors activities, and I look forward to travel the world, meet new people and learn about different cultures.
