Dr. Dan Kobi received his degree in dentistry from the University of Alberta in 1994. Soon after, he relocated to Salmon Arm where he opened the first of several practices. In November 2017, Dr. Kobi opened Care Dental to practice dentistry through an individual approach. Care Dental was founded on the principle of uncompromised patient care delivered by top-notch professionals committed to treating every patient and with the respect and consideration they deserve.
Since graduating from the University of Saskatchewan in 1996 as a Doctor of Dental Medicine, Dr. Chad Fletcher has been practicing in his very busy and family owned dental practice, located in sunny Weyburn, SK. Not stopping there, a thirst for being the best has driven Dr. Chad to never stop learning, and he has logged over 1000 continuing education hours to supplement his over 20 years of practical experience.
Dr. Chad is an incredible fit here in Kelowna, and not just because of his affable personality, and warm smile, but also his commitment to the latest in dental techniques and advancements. His love for the field takes him “back to school” 2 or 3 times each year and on top of his expertise in all aspects of General Dentistry, he has developed his passion in the field of orthodontics, and has become an expert in CEREC, Cone Beam Imaging and … Lasers …. yes! We use Lasers here at Care Dental (cue the Austin Powers jokes).
Married with two energetic teenagers, Dr. Chad and family love the Kelowna lifestyle, and spend “non-looking in your mouth” time coaching soccer, golfing, skiing and spending time with family at the lake.
From very early days, Dr. Hanan was recognized as a stand-out student and awarded a full scholarship by the Kuwait Ministry of Higher Education. Taking full advantage of this, Dr. Hanan attended Dalhousie University in Halifax, Canada, first completing a Bachelor of Science degree in Chemistry, as well as a Doctor of Dental Surgery Degree.
Dr. Hanan’s continuing education has been focused on Restorative Dentistry, Pediatric Dentistry and Dental Surgery, where she has assisted at Victoria General Hospital’s Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery Department.
Fluent in both Arabic and English, Dr. Hanan can be found volunteering in her spare time, with a focus on helping young mums and kids, through Supportive Housing for Young Mothers, Elementary School Outreach, and the Mobile Outreach Street Health Program.
A big driver of our CareKids program, Dr. Hanan’s core values in dentistry align well with Care Dental’s, where she strives everyday to be the dentist that your whole family will look forward to visiting.
A Penticton native, Dr. Jesse developed his love for the Okanagan Valley in his family’s garden and orchard, where during his school years, he could be found studying and learning.
Upon graduating from UBC, Dr. Jesse completed his medical training at James Cook University in Cairns, QLD. The Okanagan apples could not keep this Doctor away however, and upon receiving his Doctor of Dental Surgery Degree, he returned to the Okanagan Valley to begin his practice.
Dr. Jesse hasn’t stopped learning, and has focused his continuing education on the treatment of dental traumas (which unfortunately come up a bit in this sporting playground that is the Okanagan), dental radiography, Periodontal Disease, Caries Management, Orthodontics, implantology, and temporomandibular disorders, phew, what a mouthful!
And it doesn’t stop with study! A quick read of our google reviews shows that Dr. Jesse is loved by patients and Care team members alike. His quick smile, relaxed demeanour, ability to quickly ease dental anxiety, and lovely chair side manner are often mentioned as some of the reasons why.
And yes, in the fall, he brings in a near weekly box of apples for patients to enjoy… Did you know that he donates much of his spare time to act as the manager and principal orchardist of his family fruit operation?
Dr. Jesse loves sport, and fitness, and in particular, basketball. His basketball career highlight occurred in 2011-2012 when he was honoured to act as a Special Olympics Canada basketball coach.
As the Practice Manager at Care Dental, Allie is inspired by the opportunity to work in beautiful Kelowna, BC to augment the whole patient experience and help overcome patient dental anxiety. Allie and the Care Dental team comb through every detail of the patient booking and elevate as much as possible to achieve the goal of being the dentist you’ll look forward to visiting.
Allie brings over 15 years of experience in marketing, special event management and administration to Care Dental, with expertise in branding, event production and design. After many moons in large-scale, special event production, Allie found that becoming a parent drew her to the world of health and wellness and was inspired to enter the healthcare field. Dentistry makes such a positive impact in the lives of Canadians and she thought it would be the perfect industry to leave her mark through a level of enhanced hospitality not often experienced in the industry. Here at Care Dental, Allie is motivated to create a first class, relaxing dental experience for all patients including the littlest ones. Her work will continue to develop the practice, finding new and innovative ways to assist in elevating Care every step of the way.
Outside of Care Dental, her passions include spending time with her family on one of Kelowna’s many beaches, skiing at Big White and pursuing her interest in holistic nutrition. When there is time for a holiday, Allie loves to travel with current favourite destinations being Palm Springs, Mexico or her all-time favourite destination, Buena Vista Surf Club in San Juan Del Sur, Nicaragua.
