Originally from Olds, Dr. Kendra Barkman began her education at the University of Calgary with a Bachelor of Medical Sciences degree, before completing a Doctor of Dental Surgery degree at the University of Alberta. During her education, she participated in multiple international dental school opportunities, including a trip to Ecuador with “Kindness in Action” as a volunteer dentist, and to Germany for a dental student exchange program at the University of Dresden. She was the recipient of the International College of Dentists student award, and a member of the Dental Student’s Association.

What Dr.Barkman loves most about dentistry is the ability to form a connection with each patient by providing comprehensive, patient centred care from diagnosis through to treatment. She enjoys all aspects of general dentistry and especially loves working with children.

In her spare time, she enjoys travelling, volunteering, being outdoors, spending time with friends and family, reading a good book, or participating in art classes.
