Upon graduating dentistry from Western University in London, Ontario, I followed my heart and headed west to practice in the beautiful town of Jasper, Alberta. Once there I honed my skills in both dentistry and outdoor pursuits which involved skiing, hiking and climbing. In 2003 I moved to the Island where I continue to practice with a patient-centered philosophy, listening to my patients needs and providing the dentistry that works for them. When I am not in the office, you will find me on the valley trails, running, mountain biking, skiing and enjoying everything this beautiful island has to offer.

Dr. Tara Mehta is a West Coast native, hailing from the Bay Area, California. She completed her Bachelor’s degree at McGill University in Montreal with a major in Cognitive Neuroscience, investigating the fields of psychology and speech in context of the brain. After an internship year in ovarian cancer research, Dr. Mehta realized that despite her affinity for healthcare, medicine was too impersonal of a field.

She went on to complete a Doctor of Dental Medicine degree at the University of Sydney in Australia. Dr. Mehta’s love for dentistry stems from its unique integration of medicine, patient care, and artistry. With experience in the public health system, she understands that treatment can seem complicated and daunting; her main goal is to ensure that each visit to the dentist is comfortable and explanatory so patients can always make informed decisions about their health.

Come in for a visit with Dr. Mehta and while she’s checking out your mouth, maybe she’ll tell you about the time she was kidnapped by a runaway Icelandic horse!
