From a young age, Dr. Naheed Daya was determined to pursue a profession that afforded her the opportunity to serve the community. Upon graduating with a DMD degree from Boston University, she completed a one-year General Practice Residency program at Montefiore Medical Center in Bronx, New York. Upon completion, she returned to her native Alberta to be near her family, where she currently resides and practices as the owner of two thriving dental clinics in Edmonton and Calgary.
Throughout her 12 years in practice, Naheed has adhered strictly to her core values of honesty and integrity, which she believes are key ingredients for sustained patient relationships and business growth. “We exist solely for our patients, to serve their needs. Earning their trust is critical for excellence in patient care,” she said. “When you work with honesty and integrity, you build trust and establish credibility.”
Naheed enjoys mentoring her associates at both her practices. She finds further fulfilment in the ongoing training she provides to her dental assistants to be their best, encouraging them to continuously expand their skills and adapt to new procedures and technologies.
Naheed takes great pride in the highly collaborative and patient-centric culture she’s fostered within her practices. “Through my honesty and openness, I try to set an example for my team to emulate, and I hope that my enthusiasm and fun way of doing things sets the momentum for others to follow. My team feels connected and committed to going above and beyond to achieve not only individual goals, but collective goals for optimal patient care.”
