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.
Our Administrative Team
Karen - Office Manager
I have been a registered dental assistant for 37 years; working in many aspects of dentistry including: pedodontist, orthodontist, many management positions and everything in between - except be the dentist. A beautiful smile can give a patient confidence and greater self-image, I love giving patients the opportunity to reach their dental dreams. I love the simple things in life; reading, exercising and quiet family time.
Stephanie Frederick - Reception
I have been a part of the Urban Oasis team for many years. I started out helping with sterilization and recently moved to the front as reception. I enjoy interacting with patients each day and meeting new people. I have an Early Childhood Degree and after closing my Preschool of 8 years in June, I am really enjoying learning all the new aspects of dentistry. In my spare time I enjoy horseback riding with my daughter and watching formula one with my husband.
I look forward to growing from all the new challenges and helping you with your dental needs.

Our Hygiene Team

Hi, my name is Gundeep. I graduated from Camosun College’s Dental Hygiene Program in 2018. As a Dental Hygienist, I am here to learn your dental history and chief concerns to formulate a Patient centered care plan together with the dental team, while respecting Individual’s needs, expectations and priorities.

Jessie Cho - Dental Hygienist
I completed my 4 year dental hygiene bachelor degree from University of British Columbia in 2018. I was born in South Korea but grew up in Calgary since I was 7 and returned to this lovely city after my studies. I love meeting new people and getting to know my patients. As a dental hygienist, I think it’s crucial to educate my patients so they understand their own oral health. Whether it’s that they are doing an amazing job or need pointers as to which area of the mouth to spend some more time on or trying a new dental tool. I am very thorough but at the same time gentle and patient. Outside of work, I love trying new restaurants and all sorts of sports like swimming, badminton, indoor rock climbing, and snowboarding to name a few.

The pure joys of my life are my children, our three little girls and our latest addition, a little boy.
