Dr. Zahra A. Kurji is a certified specialist in pediatric dentistry, a fellow of the Royal College of Dental Surgeons of Canada and is a member of the Canadian Academy of Pediatric Dentistry (CAPD) and the American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry (AAPD). Dr. Kurji obtained her Master of Science in Pediatric Dentistry from the University of Toronto. She completed a Bachelor of Science and Doctor of Dental Medicine at the University of Saskatchewan. She then completed a one-year hospital residency at the Royal University Hospital in Saskatoon. During her dental schooling, Dr. Kurji was a recipient of numerous awards; including the Saskatchewan Chapter Dentistry for Children Award (2003), Award from the American Academy of Oro-Facial Pain (2003), Award from American Academy of Periodontology (2003), W. A. Cotter Award (2002) and the Dr. Kirk Johnston Memorial Award (2001). Dr. Kurji enjoyed general dental practice for three years in Saskatoon. Her interest in pediatric oral health and in the treatment of individuals with special needs led her to pursue specialty training in Pediatric Dentistry at the University of Toronto. During her pediatric residency, Dr. Kurji attained the top prize for her research presentation at the Canadian Academy of Pediatric Dentistry (CAPD) Meeting in Charlottetown in PEI (2008) and also attained first prize at the 2009 Research Day at the University of Toronto. Dr. Kurji has been practicing in Edmonton since September of 2009, and teaches part-time at the University of Alberta, where she instructs dental students. She is the Chair of the Scientific Committee of the Canadian Academy of Pediatric Dentistry and is also one of the directors on the Edmonton District and Dental Society. Dr. Kurji has published her research in the American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry Publication, Pediatric Dentistry. Dr. Kurji loves the snow in spite of growing up in a hot climate and lives in Edmonton with her husband, Jordan.

I took younger boy to see Dr. Kurji today. He has to get an appliance to prevent him from grinding at night.
Dr. Kurji is a great pediatric dentist but her practice also takes adults.
I was afraid that we would have to ship the boys elsewhere when they turned adults but we are lucky in that Dr. Kurji will continue to see them.
Not all pediatric dentists will see the kids after they are grown up.
Younger  boy is seventeen and is very used to Dr. Kurji.

If you are looking for a super kind person to be the dentist for your babies and who is a perfectionist about her dental work, this is the dentist for your family.

I assure you that I got handed Dr. Kurji after my own dentist retired and was nervous about the move to her but after just the first visit many years ago I was completely confident about her. Why? She is herself and I am myself. We are who we are and there is complete chatter every time.

Younger boy has another visit to see her at the end of January for a cleaning appointment. It's best to become friends with your child's dentist; this way she adopts your kids as her own. My sons are Dr. Kurji's babies as well.

The office was simply packed. I believe that this business will do spectacularly well simply because Dr. Kurji is living her values. She loves kids. She loves dentistry. And she is kind.

What more do y'all want?  She is super. Don't believe me? Just look at her background.

I've taken both my sons to Dr. Kurji since 2009. Although older boy is now 21 years old and younger boy is 17 years old, they still go to see her. Why? Because she is the nicest and most competent dentist I have encountered. She is especially good with children who have special needs. She is a real softie who is a perfectionist. Take your babies to her. And she is even willing to be their dentists when they grow up!
