  • Dr. Kendra Schick

    Dr. Kendra Schick has been practicing dentistry since 2002, when she graduated from dental school and started working at dental offices in Calgary. She took over Evolution Dental in 2007 with the goal of creating a dental practice that puts patients first and builds strong relationships with everyone who comes in. Dr. Schick has had an interest in health and helping people all her life. Being a dentist allows her to fulfill both of these interests, and she is always happy when her patients can leave satisfied, with beautiful and healthy smiles. She is passionate about dentistry, and this passion drives her to keep Evolution Dental as technologically advanced and patient-focused as it is. Educational and Professional Background Dr. Schick graduated from the University of Saskatchewan College of Dentistry in 2002. She is also a graduate of the Las Vegas Institute for Advanced Dental Studies (LVI Global), and is an LVI Fellow. This advanced training has helped her achieve a core understanding of aesthetic dental procedures as well as symptoms, diagnosis, and treatment of TMJ. Treatment Philosophy Helping patients and providing an office where you can be comfortable and talk openly about treatment options is Dr. Schick’s number one priority. She believes firmly in working together with her patients to find solutions to improve each person’s oral health as well as create beautiful smiles. She will never simply tell you that you need to have a certain procedure done - instead, she will walk you through your options and work together with you to create a custom treatment plan. Dr. Schick offers a wide variety of dental services, both aesthetic and restorative. She takes into account the whole mouth when suggesting treatment options, instead of focusing on a singular issue. Her treatment plans are comprehensive and tailored to your individual needs. Family and Community Dr. Schick was born and raised in Saskatchewan. She moved to Calgary with her husband after graduating from university, and has been here ever since. She has two children and leads an active lifestyle, often running, swimming, and skiing. Dr. Schick enjoys forming bonds with her patients, and the sense of community fostered at her practice is one reason why she loves coming to work each day. Local community involvement is also very important to her, which is why she spends time volunteering and giving back.

  • Dental Bridges

    A dental bridge is a way to replace a missing tooth or teeth. Bridge dentistry involves attaching an artificial tooth/crown to adjacent teeth. It is done by preparing the adjacent teeth for crowns (a traditional bridge), or by having small “wings” attach to the back or sides of the adjacent teeth (a Maryland bridge). Unlike a denture that you can remove, a bridge is bonded to your teeth for stability and comfort. It restores the function of your missing teeth while looking natural. What Is Involved in Getting a Bridge? Getting a crown, onlay, or bridge generally takes two appointments. At the first visit, your tooth is carefully shaped and then a digital impression is taken of the tooth. This record is sent to our laboratory, where a highly trained Ceramist custom makes your tooth crown. Before you leave your first visit, a temporary restoration is fitted for your tooth. Your second visit will be reserved 1-2 weeks later. The temporary restoration is easily removed and your porcelain crown, onlay, or bridge is fitted and bonded. These restorations are long lasting and provide strength for many years. You can increase their longevity by brushing, flossing, and coming for regular cleanings and re-care examinations. Call Evolution Dental at 403-768-2443 to learn about bridges and other tooth restoration options at our office in Calgary.

  • Crowns & Onlays

    Crowns (“caps”) are complete porcelain coverings that provide protection and strength for teeth. A crown is custom-made to look and feel like your natural tooth. Dental crowns are the ideal restoration for a tooth that is cracked, broken, weakened by decay, or has had root canal treatment. If a weak tooth isn’t supported with a crown, it can lead to death of the nerve and/or loss of the tooth. For more information about crowns and other dental restorations, please call Evolution Dental at 403-768-2443 today. We are proud to serve the communities of Cochrane, Calgary and other nearby areas in Alberta. Crowns vs. Onlays & Inlays An onlay is a strong porcelain restoration that covers one or more sides of your tooth. Onlays or inlays are required when there has been significant natural tooth damage (from decay, cracks, or previous restorations) that a filling will not be strong enough to repair. Once bonded, onlays restore the tooth’s strength to close to what it was before it was damaged. Onlays are custom shaded to your tooth so that they are virtually undetectable. What Is Involved in Getting a Crown or Onlay? Getting a crown, onlay, or bridge generally takes two appointments. At the first visit, your tooth is carefully shaped and then a digital impression is taken of the tooth. This record is sent to our laboratory, where a highly trained Ceramist custom-makes your tooth crown. Before you leave your first visit, a temporary restoration is fitted for your tooth. Your second visit will be reserved 1-2 weeks later. The temporary restoration is easily removed and your porcelain crown, onlay, or bridge is fitted and bonded. These restorations are long-lasting and provide strength for many years. You can increase their longevity by brushing, flossing, and coming for regular cleanings and re-care examinations. Find out the ideal restoration for a chipped, cracked or broken tooth by contacting Evolution Dental today. Call 403-768-2443 to schedule your appointment at our office in Northwest Calgary.

  • Tooth-Colored Fillings

    Fillings are used to restore a tooth cavity, small chips, or to replace existing defective fillings. They are bonded in place and are made to match your natural tooth. The dental fillings we use are bonded, tooth-colored composite resins. They have similar properties to a natural tooth, therefore remaining functional, beautiful, and conservative. A filling is recommended where the damage to the tooth is not too extensive. If a significant portion of the tooth has been compromised by decay, breakage or cracks, a porcelain onlay or crown may be more appropriate to give you a long-lasting restoration. We Do Not Endorse Mercury Metal Fillings In contrast, metal mercury tooth fillings require much more tooth to be cut away to place them, as they are not bonded. They often expand and contract over time, causing stress fractures and cracks (think of a mercury thermometer). These cracks can cause part of the tooth to break off, the nerve to die, or the root to split. Unfortunately, we see this damage all of the time, which is why our office is metal mercury filling free. If you need to fix a tooth or replace a worn out metal filling, please contact Evolution Dental today by calling 403-768-2443 to discuss our tooth-colored filling options. Dr. Kendra Schick and her team proudly serve all of Calgary, nearby communities like Cochrane and other areas of Alberta.

  • Routine Exams

  • Root Canal Therapy

    Root canal therapy is required when a tooth’s nerve is dead, injured or infected. Nerves can die or become injured through accidents, trauma, an unbalanced bite, or extensive dental work. They can become infected when bacteria enter through cracks, leaking fillings, deep cavities, or broken teeth. Root canal therapy is simply a filling inside of the roots of the tooth. It involves removing the dead or infected nerve tissue. We use current techniques to try to make the procedure as comfortable and predictable as possible. When the root canal therapy is finished, a crown is usually recommended. A crown provides protection from breakage, as a tooth with a root canal is weak and highly prone to fracture. If the tooth is not protected with a crown and it breaks, it will often need more work to fix it or may even need to be extracted. For more information about endodontic services at Evolution Dental, please call 403-768-2443 today. We welcome patients throughout Calgary and nearby areas including Cochrane.

  • Porcelain Veneers

    Of all the services we offer to our Calgary-area patients, few elicit as many questions or as much excitement as porcelain veneers. People have often read up on porcelain veneers, and they want to know if veneers are right for them. The excitement and curiosity are understandable. Porcelain veneers really do represent a wonderful option for many patients. They have a lot of advantages over other possible treatments, and that makes them very interesting to patients. Still, it's always important to get the right treatment, not the most exciting. At Evolution Dental, you can count on Dr. Schick and our staff to carefully evaluate your teeth and determine if veneers are right for you. If you live in or around Calgary, Alberta and you have questions about porcelain veneers, please call Evolution Dental today at 403-768-2422 for a consultation and examination. When Are Porcelain Veneers Appropriate? Porcelain veneers are thin, custom made ceramic coverings that are bonded to the front surfaces of teeth. This might not sound particularly impressive, but these thin ceramic cases can actually effect an extraordinary transformation in the quality of your smile. Porcelain veneers can fix some common cosmetic problems, including: Chipped, cracked or broken teeth Stained teeth that don't respond to teeth whitening treatments Irregularly shaped teeth Teeth that are spaced oddly – such as being crowded or too far apart The first step in determining if you should opt for porcelain veneers is simply figuring out if your problems and concerns are among those that can be addressed by veneers. If they are, then you might be a good candidate. What Are The Advantages of Porcelain Veneers? Of course, there are usually other options for treating the problems listed above. However, we have found that veneers represent an option that many patients find simply irresistible. Why? Because porcelain veneers have a number of advantages over these other solutions. These advantages include: Durability: Porcelain veneers are very durable and usually last for many years. We use only the best materials to craft and bond your veneers. You can increase their longevity by brushing and flossing regularly, coming for regular examinations and hygiene visits, wearing a mouth guard during sporting activities, and a night guard if you grind or clench your teeth. If accidental damage does occur, we can usually replace only the veneer involved. Inconspicuousness: With current technology and materials, porcelain veneers are virtually undetectable. They are made completely out of porcelain (no metal or greying), mimic natural tooth translucency and light reflection, and blend seamlessly at the margins. We want you to look like you have a great new smile while no one else can tell you have veneers. Simplicity: Finally, with veneers, you don't have to worry about what you eat or drink after they are bonded to your teeth. You should always eat a healthy diet, of course, but you don't have to be concerned that your veneers won't be able to handle certain foods. You can eat what you love. Again, the only way to know for sure if veneers are right for you is to make an appointment and undergo an examination. We'll help you find the right course of action. Looking for a way to improve your smile? Contact Dr. Kendra Schick by calling Evolution Dental at 403-768-2422 today to discuss your candidacy for porcelain veneers. We are pleased to serve patients throughout the Calgary area, nearby communities like Cochrane and other parts of Alberta.

  • Teeth Whitening

    Teeth whitening is a simple and effective way to get a brighter, younger looking smile. We offer both power whitening and take-home dental teeth whitening solutions. These options are much more effective than over the counter teeth whitener products. Please ask us which dental whitening option is best for you. Having white teeth and a more attractive smile may be easier than you think. Call Evolution Dental in Calgary at 403-768-2443 for a discussion of your cosmetic dental options. Is Whitening Safe? We use well researched, professional products for whitening. This process is often called “tooth bleaching,” which has earned some expected concern. The professional dental whitening products do not actually contain any bleach. As you know with your clothes, bleach breaks down the fabric over time with repeated bleaching. The solutions we use for whitening are closer to "Oxyclean" in their action. The organic stain that has created the yellowing or darkening of your teeth is oxidized by the whitening solution in a way that does not damage your enamel. It lifts any pigment embedded in your teeth, revealing a brighter shade. How White Will My Teeth Get? Each person has a different whitest shade. The degree of your stain, the color of your stain, and the quality of your enamel may affect your outcome. Please ask for a complimentary whitening assessment to discuss your expectations. Will My Teeth Be Sensitive? For many people, whitening does not cause sensitivity. If your teeth are sensitive to begin with, you may have sensitivity during or following whitening. This sensitivity is most often minor, short lasting, and will resolve after the whitening is finished. We have many tips and products to help eliminate or decrease the sensitivity allowing most patients to whiten their smile. Call 403-768-2443 for a free cosmetic consultation at Evolution Dental today. Dr. Schick serves all of Calgary, Cochrane and nearby areas of Alberta.

  • TMJ Dentistry

    When you consider your oral health, you most likely think primarily about the health, function and appearance of your teeth. However, optimal oral health also involves the correct alignment of your jaw joints, known as temporomandibular joints. These joints are responsible for all of your jaw’s movement and even slight misalignment can cause symptoms such as popping, clicking or grinding sounds when you open or shut your mouth. If you are experiencing discomfort or noises in the jaw when chewing or biting, please contact Evolution Dental today online or at 403-768-2443 to schedule an appointment with Dr. Kendra Schick. We proudly welcome patients from Calgary, Cochrane and neighboring communities of Alberta. What Is TMJ Disorder? The temporomandibular joint is one of the most complex joints in your body, connecting your lower jaw to your skull. It’s one of the few joints in the body that moves both up and down and side to side. It is connected to many of the muscles and nerves in your facial region. This high level of complexity helps your jaw perform important daily functions such as talking, chewing and yawning. Temporomandibular joint disorder (TMJ) is the name given to the condition that results from a misalignment of the jaw. It can cause chronic pain in a number of areas throughout your body, making it often difficult to diagnose. Dr. Schick has years of experience in the proper diagnosis and treatment of TMJ and continues to train on the subject every year. The best way to determine if your symptoms are a sign of TMJ syndrome is to schedule an evaluation with Dr. Schick. She will conduct a thorough evaluation and recommend an appropriate treatment when necessary. Back to the Top TMJ Symptoms The severity of TMJ and its associated symptoms can range from mild to debilitating. Some of these symptoms can include: Jaw problems: These can include popping, clicking or grinding sounds, as well as lockjaw or stiffness. Head conditions: These can include dizziness and migraine-like headaches. Facial symptoms: These can include swelling, pain and muscle fatigue. Ear issues: These can include difficulty hearing, ringing (tinnitus) and pain. Body aches: These can include pain in the neck and shoulders. Some of these symptoms may be present even if you don’t have TMJ. It’s important to find out if TMJ is the source of your pain. Dr. Schick can assess your oral condition and design a treatment plan that is right for you. TMJ Headaches TMJ is a disorder of the jaw, but it can cause far-reaching problems, including headaches. TMJ may cause different kinds of headaches: Tension headaches: These are the most common types of headaches associated with TMJ. They result from muscle tension and feel like an aching, dull pain that constricts your skull. These headaches are caused by TMJ because of jaw muscle tension that travels from the bottom of the jaw to the area of the skull behind the eyes. Referred pain headaches: This type of headache is just severe jaw pain that feels like a headache. This misleading pain is more common than you might think and contributes to the difficulty of tracking down the source of TMJ pain. Migraine-like headaches: The link between migraines and TMJ is complicated. While research continues on the true nature of migraines, it seems they can be triggered by overstimulation of the trigeminal nerve. This nerve is also entwined with jaw muscles, and overactive muscles of the jaw may put pressure on these nerves, causing migraine-like headaches. Not all headaches or facial pains are the result of TMJ syndrome. However, this common condition can be overlooked when diagnosing chronic pain. If you suffer from frequent and intense facial pain or headaches, Dr. Schick can help identify the cause of your discomfort and recommend a customized treatment plan to help you find lasting health and comfort. Contact Evolution Dental Today to Discuss TMJ If you live in the Calgary or Cochrane communities of Alberta and suffer from chronic headaches, ear pain or other possibly TMJ-related discomfort, please don’t wait another day to seek treatment with our experienced dentist Dr. Kendra Schick. Call Evolution Dental now at 403-768-2443 to schedule an appointment.

  • Teeth Grinding Appliances

    Clenching and grinding are very common. They are often a result of an imbalance in how your jaw or muscles would like your jaw to close and how your teeth fit together. Your ‘bite’ can trigger you to grind or clench at night with much greater force than during the day. The dental signs of grinding can include flattening of your teeth, tooth fractures, gum recession, and indents/notches on the roots. Symptoms can include: Tooth sensitivity to temperature or pressure Jaw pain Muscle stiffness Headaches Interrupted sleep Many other head and neck symptoms A ‘night guard’ is a custom made appliance that you wear at night that provides protection to your teeth from the forces of grinding. It may also stop or lessen the teeth grinding and diminish grinding symptoms. Protecting your teeth with this type of appliance improves the longevity of your dental work and your natural teeth. When you visit Evolution Dental, Dr. Schick will examine your teeth, gums and jaw for signs of grinding. If you grind your teeth, we can fit you for a custom night guard and talk about other treatment options. Call our office in Calgary at 403-768-2443 to start finding relief.

  • Sleep Apnea & Snoring

    If your snoring is keeping other people awake at night or if you frequently wake up feeling as tired as you were when you went to bed, you may be suffering from sleep apnea. The common sleeping disorder is more than just an annoyance; it’s a serious condition that can lead to congestive heart failure, stroke, high blood pressure, mood swings and chronic fatigue that can cause accidents and injuries. If you or someone you love is struggling with snoring or other sleep apnea symptoms, please contact Evolution Dental today online or at 403-768-2443 to schedule an appointment with Dr. Kendra Schick. We help patients from Calgary, Cochrane and neighboring Alberta communities. What Is Sleep Apnea? Sleep apnea is a disorder that impairs your sleep cycles by interrupting your breathing. This can happen hundreds of times each night. When your body continuously struggles for breath, it is forced out of deep sleep into a lighter, less rewarding sleep cycle in order to breathe. There are two types of sleep apnea: Obstructive sleep apnea: This is caused by a blockage in your air passage. This blockage is the result of a collapse in the soft tissue at the back of your throat and tongue. In the event of a partial collapse, you may only experience harmless snoring. However, if a full collapse occurs, your breathing becomes slow and shallow. In cases of obstructive sleep apnea, the body does not receive adequate oxygen and does not sufficiently expel carbon dioxide. Central sleep apnea: This type of sleep disorder occurs when your brain and central nervous system fail to tell your body to breathe during slumber. Airway blockages are not to blame in central sleep apnea; it is more of a respiratory malfunction. People who suffer from this form of sleep disorder can suffer pauses in breathing that can last up to two minutes, which can seriously impact the amount of oxygen going to your brain and heart. Sleep Apnea Symptoms Sleep is one of the most important bodily functions. People who consistently have restful sleeps tend to lead healthier, longer and more productive lives. One of the most essential components of a good night’s rest is an unobstructed airway. Unfortunately, due to the fact that sleep apnea symptoms occur during slumber, many people who suffer from the condition are unaware of their possible situation. Symptoms of sleep apnea can include: Repeatedly waking and gasping for breath throughout the night Irregular heart beat Acid reflux Heartburn Decreased libido Impotence High blood pressure Tossing and turning during sleep Insomnia Mood swings Irritability Memory and concentration problems Excessive daytime fatigue Waking with a sore throat or dry mouth Frequent morning headaches Sleep apnea can affect children as well. Kids who may have sleep apnea may show symptoms such as: Bed wetting Restless sleep with frequent awakenings throughout the night Problems with attention Excessive snoring Not growing as fast as others in their age group If any of the symptoms listed above, alone or combined with snoring, persist for more than a few weeks, you should consider getting a sleep apnea evaluation with Dr. Schick. Sleep Apnea Causes In addition to making you awaken feeling tired and not refreshed, sleep apnea presents a serious danger in the form of oxygen deprivation. When you don’t get enough oxygen, a number of problems, such as heart disease, high blood pressure and cognitive problems may arise. But why does sleep apnea develop in the first place? Causes of sleep apnea include: Snoring Relaxed throat and tongue muscles Obesity Smaller than normal airway Large tonsils, adenoids or other anatomical difference Family history of sleep apnea Nasal congestion Smoking or exposure to second-hand smoke Other physical conditions disorders and syndromes Sleep Apnea Treatment Options Many people who experience sleep apnea use a device called CPAP (Continuous Positive Airway Pressure) to treat the condition. While CPAP is often an effective treatment, it requires the placement of a mask over the face during sleep. Many patients find this solution so cumbersome they are unable to fall asleep in the first place and many patients simply do not comply with the treatment over a period of time. At Evolution Dental, we offer a comfortable and effective alternative to CPAP. If appropriate for your situation, Dr. Schick may send you home with a dental device to wear while you sleep. This oral appliance fits in your mouth and is made of a control-cured dental grade poly methyl methacrylate material. This material allows the mouth guard to be smaller and more comfortable than traditional mandibular advancement devices. During your sleep apnea evaluation, Dr. Schick will assess your situation and explain all of your options, including CPAP.

  • Full Face Orthodontics

    Here at Evolution Dental, we believe in creating the best results for your health and your appearance through full face orthodontics. Instead of just focusing on the teeth, we instead take into account the entire jaw for a more complete picture. This allows us to avoid extractions as well as common post-braces complications like TMJ disorder. If you have mildly to severely misaligned teeth, an under or overbite, or crowded teeth that other dentists may have recommended extractions for, please come see Dr. Kendra Schick for a comprehensive evaluation and orthodontic treatment plan. Call us at 403-768-2443 to schedule a consultation for yourself or your child. What Is Full-Face Orthodontics? Full face orthodontics, also known as functional orthopedic orthodontics or epigenetic orthodontics, is a method of straightening the teeth while also guiding growth of the jaw in order to create enough space for all of your teeth to live comfortably. It is a more holistic way of looking at orthodontics that allows for not only straight teeth, but also a more attractive and healthy jaw. Benefits of full face orthodontics include: Less risk of developing TMJ Improvement of sleep apnea Correction of underdeveloped jaws Expansion of jaw so that all teeth fit comfortably Better profile and appearance due to fully developed jaw Improvement of posture due to connection to cervical spine Full face orthodontics is a long and complex procedure that requires patience and ability to look at the long term. It is not a quick fix or a purely cosmetic treatment such as Invisalign. However, the results will be greatly worth it in the end. Who Can Benefit from Full Face Orthodontics? Adults and children both can benefit from full face orthodontics. It is better to have the treatment as early as possible, as children are still growing and the jaw can be guided more easily. However, with technological advances and greater insight into growth patterns of the jaw and teeth, adults can also benefit from this treatment. No matter the condition of your teeth, whether you have mild crookedness or severe crowding that in the past would require extractions, Dr. Schick will look not just at your teeth but at your whole face and jaw in order to create the best and most comprehensive orthodontic plan for you. Not everyone needs an intensive course with jaw guidance, but it is highly important to make sure that your jaw will still be aligned properly with no risk of joint instability and TMJ disorder after your teeth are straightened. Dr. Schick places the health of her patients first, and enjoys helping adults and children alike achieve proper jaw structure and beautiful, straight, healthy teeth. Schedule Your Orthodontic Treatment Consultation If you or your child has crooked, crowded, gapped, or otherwise misaligned teeth, don’t hesitate to contact Dr. Schick today by calling 403-768-2443. She will perform a comprehensive evaluation using sophisticated diagnostic equipment and recommend a treatment plan customized to your unique needs. We serve patients in Northwest, Downtown, and nearby areas of Calgary, Alberta.

  • Dental Implants

    If you’re missing a tooth, you’re at risk for more than just a gap in your smile. Missing teeth can lead to a number of oral health problems, such as jaw deterioration, a misaligned bite, and the loss of additional teeth. Dental implants are the most effective solution to replace missing teeth because they replace your missing root as well as the tooth itself. If you live in or near Calgary, Cochrane and other nearby areas of Alberta and would like to learn more about dental implants, please call Evolution Dental today at 403-768-2443 to schedule an appointment with Dr. Kendra Schick. What Is a Dental Implant? Dental implants are artificial replacements for missing teeth. They are designed to look and function like natural teeth. Your natural tooth is made of a crown and a root, but a dental implants consists of three components: A titanium implant inserted directly into the jawbone. A porcelain crown or denture A device that connects the crown to the implant, called an abutment A dental implant is a long-lasting biocompatible post that acts as the root of your tooth, carefully implanted into your upper or lower jaw. Surrounding bone and tissue then naturally grow around the peg, holing the implant in place, in a process called osseointegration. Not only can a dental implant be used to replace your tooth’s root, it can hold other types of restorations in place, such as dentures, bridges and crowns. Benefits of Dental Implants Dental implants offer a variety of advantages over other tooth replacement options, such as: Longevity: If you take proper care of your dental implant it can last for decades. Convenience: Caring for your dental implant is easy; you can clean it exactly like you clean your existing, natural teeth. No need to alter adjacent teeth: Unlike bridges and other tooth replacement options, dental implants do not require the altering of your surrounding teeth in any way. Bone preservation: When a tooth is lost, your jawbone at the site of your missing tooth will gradually begin to deteriorate, in a process called resorption. When dental implants are placed, the body reacts as it would with a natural tooth, preserving the bone. Are Dental Implants Right for Me? Dental implants are ideal tooth replacement options, but they are not appropriate for every patient or situation. Dr. Schick will assess your oral condition and make a recommendation that best suits your needs and offer alternatives to match your budget and lifestyle. In addition to your dental well-being, your total health, comfort and safety are always top priorities at Evolution Dental. Dr. Schick will only recommend dental implants if she is confident that you have a strong likelihood for success. Generally speaking, you may be a good candidate for dental implants if you: Have healthy gums: In order to protect your jawbone and surrounding teeth from becoming infected, it is important that you have healthy gums. Your gums must be able to properly heal around the implant, helping to keep it secure. Have adequate jawbone density: Your jaw is composed of hard and soft bone marrow. It is essential that you have enough hard bone marrow to effectively hold the implant firmly in place. Have sufficient jawbone: Your jawbone must be able to fit the implant. If it is not high or wide enough, a bone graft may be necessary to continue the implant process.
