Resiliency, Re-opening & Rehiring – Time to open!
As we gear up to re-open our clinics, re-engage with our patients and bring our valuable teams back work. What steps will need to happen to ensure we are ready with a safe clinic.
Can’t wait to see you all.
Dr. Jan Jaffer graduated from UOP in San Francisco in 2002 at the age of 22. Through his ethos of hard work, integrity and giving back to his patients, staff and the community, Jan developed the TREC Dental Partnership that operates 20 dental clinics in the Calgary area, including 4 specialty clinics. In 2018, TREC Dental partnered with CUPS to operate a free dental clinic in Calgary providing care to some of Calgary’s neediest citizens.
Jan regularly volunteers with Kindness in Action and Dentistry For All. He has been on 14 overseas dental missions and he is also currently the Chair of the World Partnership Walk Calgary, an annual event that raises money for international development. He is passionate about health and fitness, and is the co-owner of TREC Fit Lab. Jan has been invited to speak at national meetings on practice management and team empowerment. He is currently a lecturer with Straumann Dental in the field of restorative implant dentistry.
Following in his father’s footsteps, Dr. Jan Jaffer knew from a very early age that he would be a dentist. After graduating from high school, he was granted the opportunity to enroll in an accelerated five-year dentistry program at the University of the Pacific in San Francisco, where he attained his doctorate in 2002 at the age of 22.
Upon graduation, he joined his father’s dental practice, which had been established in Northwest Calgary since 1981. Jan soon decided to build on the great reputation of this practice to create TREC Dental – which now operates 15 clinics that pride themselves on being “values-based and socially-conscious.” TREC Dental partners and team members alike share this ethos of meaningful giving back— on both a local and international scale.
While TREC donates and participates in many local initiatives, Dr. Jaffer is most proud of TREC’s recent partnership with Calgary Urban Project Society (CUPS) – a local organization dedicated to providing free dental care to some of Calgary’s most vulnerable citizens. He personally has been on 12 overseas dental missions to remote communities in Guatemala, Peru, Tibet, Ecuador and Morocco, as have many of his TREC partners.
