Meet Dr. Jennifer Graas

Dr. Graas received her Bachelor of Medical Sciences degree and her Doctor of Dental Surgery degree from the University of Alberta in 2007. After her graduation, Dr. Graas returned to Calgary to develop and grow her practice.

In 2017 she opened Eau Claire Park Dental to provide patients with a spacious, comfortable, and modern dental experience.

Dr. Graas has spent years training at The Kois Center in Seattle, learning the latest advances in aesthetic, implant, and restorative dentistry. She is now recognized as a Mentor at the Kois Center and received the highest rank in her cohort. Dr. Graas regularly travels to keep current with leading-edge practices from the world’s top dental educators. She particularly enjoys aesthetic dentistry and is the only dentist in Calgary certified to do Microthin (no preparation) veneers.

“My goal as your dentist is to provide you with outstanding care and lasting quality – two factors that matter the most. I want my patients to receive the level of care that I expect for myself and my family.”

Meet Dr. Cliff Swanlund

“In my 44 years of treating patients, the greatest reward is seeing dental work that stands the test of time. 

Each patients’ risks are different, and customized treatments are the answer. Preventive follow-up of completed treatment is essential to maximize positive outcomes. It’s so rewarding to round out my career at Eau Claire Park Dental, where I can fully achieve this philosophy. I get the most joy from seeing appreciative patients with stellar post-treatment results after 20 and 30 years. Dentistry is my passion.”

Dr. Swanlund graduated from the Faculty of Dentistry at the University of Manitoba in 1976. He began his career practicing in Pinawa, Manitoba. Since 1980, he has practiced general dentistry in downtown Calgary.

He has spent time in several study clubs over his career and, at times, sponsors a removable prosthetic (denture) study group in his office. He is also a graduate of The Kois Center and has a particular interest in denture treatment. 

Dr. Swanlund participates in the Calgary Dental Curling League and is an avid painter. You can find his artwork in galleries around Calgary, Banff, and Canmore.
