Our Pediatric Dentist

Meet Dr. Sam

Dr. Samneet K. Mangat, a.k.a Dr. Sam, is the founder of Happy Trails Children’s Dentistry and was born and raised in northeast Calgary. 

She attended the University of Calgary, where she graduated with her Bachelor of Science (with distinction). Dr. Sam then moved to Detroit, where she completed dental school. There Dr. Sam found her passion in working with children, which led to her specializing as a Pediatric Dentist. She was also recognized in dental school for her strong leadership qualities and promise in the field of Pediatric Dentistry. 

After completing a rigorous two-year residency program at the renowned Children’s Hospital in Colorado – one of the top ten children’s hospitals in the US – Dr. Sam decided it was time to move back home, and she couldn’t be more excited! As a proud Calgarian, Dr. Sam loves giving back to the city that has given her so much!

Her mission was to open a pediatric dental clinic to help children establish a positive relationship with dental and oral health. Happy Trails is a fun, safe and engaging place for children to learn about and receive dental care. 

In her spare time, Dr. Sam loves to cook, visit the mountains with her husband, and of course, spend time with her nieces and nephews!
