Dental Choice Administration

Edmonton, Calgary and Airdrie, Alberta


Dental Choice was started by Dr. Hans Herchen in 1997 and currently has 15 offices in Alberta. His vision for Dental Choice included a hands on management structure—a structure that has led to well organized offices and a winning atmosphere, all while removing the hassles of running a business for his associates.

Our Team

Dr. Hans Herchen – Owner/President  

In 1989, Dr. Herchen graduated from Dentistry at the University of Alberta and has spent the last 20 years providing general dentistry to Albertans.

Dr. Herchen recognized early on that patients want to find an office that they can trust. Every day he emphasizes that vision and works to create a culture people want to be part of. He has put systems in place that help to create an environment where associates can focus on providing quality dentistry, without being burdened with the endless business details of running a small clinical setting.

Kerri Williams – Regional Manager  

Kerri Williams began her career with Dental Choice as Regional Manager in July 2015. Prior to joining Dental Choice, Kerri worked in retail management in various district and national roles.

Kerri and the Dental Choice Team are dedicated to their dentists, patients and staff. Kerri brings a new perspective to Dental Choice and is passionate about providing patients a positive dental experience when visiting our offices. She is excited to be a part of such a dynamic organization and is looking forward to seeing the continued success for the Calgary market.

Candice Rasmussen – Edmonton Regional Manager  

Candice graduated from NAIT as a Registered Dental Assistant in 2002. She began her career at Dental Choice shortly after graduating as a Dental Assistant and Dental Receptionist at the West Edmonton location. In 2005, she moved into the role of Executive Assistant to Dr. Herchen before taking on the position of Area Manager in 2007.

In her current role as Regional Manager, Candice is dedicated to enhancing and building on the accomplishments of Dental Choice. She takes pride in what the group has already achieved and looks forward to its future successes. She is grateful to be part of something unique in Alberta and for the growth and skills she has attained while working with a great group of people.

Melany Ring – Dentist Recruitment Officer  

Melany graduated from the NAIT Dental Assisting Program in 1997. She soon joined the team at Kingsway Dental Choice as Dr. Herchen’s assistant and enjoyed several years working side by side with him. Over the past 15 years Dental Choice has been able to offer her room to grow and learn and although her time as an assistant was very rewarding, she is enjoying recruitment and the relationships she is able to form with our dentists.

Melany takes great pride in her position and feels that it’s not only important to find dentists but to find the right dentists and the perfect location for them.

Carol – Controller  

For a dental organization to have a dental professional as a controller is a significant coup.  Everything from Doctor Pay to cost management systems to bonus systems, will now have the added experience of an industry colleague. As Controller, Carol is responsible for the overall leadership of the accounting department and accounting staff.
