Hi, I'm Dr. Cassi Kruger. I was born and raised here in Calgary. I completed my undergrad in Idaho and Utah while playing collegiate fastball. I am proud that I was then able to pursue my dream of being a dentist at the University of Alberta.
Hi, I’m Dr. Marissa Struik. I grew up in a small town just south of Calgary, and I am thrilled to be returning to Southern Alberta to continue my dental career.

Hello I am Amanda. I was born in Montreal but raised in Calgary. My experience over the years has been diverse and varied, having worked both in administrative and assistive roles. Most of my time has been devoted to health care and wellbeing.
I enjoy working with my hands and focusing on the finer details, which is how I found a home at Urban Oasis Dental as a sterilization technician and administrative staff.
Outside of work, I love spending time with my husband and our 4 young energetic boys. My interests include reading, minimalism and finance, which I am trying to apply in all aspects of my life.
Our Hygiene Team
Alieen - Hygienist
Hey there! I’m Aileen Kirk, a Registered Dental Hygienist. I immigrate to Canada from Africa in 1997 and feel very fortunate to have lived in this beautiful country for 25 years. Being drawn to the medical field, I knew I always wanted to help people in ways to improve their overall well-being. My path led me to pursuing the dental hygiene BSc program at the University of Alberta in 2014. It was there where I learned just how much oral health affects overall health.
Over the years I have amassed a considerable amount of knowledge and skills in order to provide my patients with the utmost service and care for their oral health. With my passion for educating people on how they can improve their health, I continue to acquire new competencies to enhance my level of expertise. I pride myself on my knowledge of periodontal disease and treatments, holistic nutrition in relation to oral health, and developing repport with people to create a trusting relationship and relaxing environment.
After developing an autoimmune disease shortly after university, I realized how important preventative health was, and became proactive in all areas of health and wellness for myself and my family. I fill my spare time with podcasts on mental health, nutrition, and psychology of relationships, as well as, immersing myself in nature, practicing yoga, and spending quality time with friends and family.
I would love for you to come and see me to discuss preventative measures and ways we can work on improving and optimizing your oral health!
