OUR CLINIC

Here at Chain Lake Dental Center we are proud to say that we treat every patient that comes into our office like family. We feel it is so important that our patients feel comfortable with us so that we can treat their dental needs gently and gain their trust. With trust any dental procedure becomes an easy one. We are blessed with a caring and gentle team of doctors, hygienists, assistants and administrators that all of our patients come to know very well.


We educate our patients about any dental care that we recommend. We involve our patients in decisions about their oral health because we believe that education is key in dentistry. An informed patient makes the best decisions when it comes to their oral health. We spend a great deal of time talking about dentistry with our patients and we have taken care in tailoring our website to education as well. There is an extensive section on this website that will explain most dental procedures that we provide.

Our patients feel happy here because we are happy in our office. Please feel free to browse our site and anytime you would like to drop in for some dental care we would love to meet you!!!

Nada is a caring and dedicated dentist. Having two children makes her a natural with children and adults alike. She continues to take dental courses and has a very special interest in orthodontics. After extensive education she provides braces and invisalign to many of her patients.

Taking care of smiles and keeping her patients healthy is something Dr. Haidar takes very seriously. She gives generously of her time to many volunteer organizations and is a member of the Canadian Dental Association, Nova Scotia Dental Association, Advanced member in the International Association of Orthodontics, and has appeared on television discussing dentistry.


When she is not practicing in her busy clinic she spends all of her time with family. She can often be spotted at Martock skiing or golfing at one of many of Nova Scotia’s beautiful courses with her husband and two children.

CARLA was born in Halifax but grew up in Alberta. She returned to Nova Scotia after high school to begin her university career, completing an undergraduate degree at St. Francis Xavier University in 2004 and a Doctor of Dental Surgery degree from Dalhousie University in 2009. After dental school, Carla was accepted into and completed a General Practice Residency program at the University of Western Ontario which focused on Emergency and hospital-based dentistry for adults and children.


Since returning to the Maritimes in 2010, Dr. Carla has been a part of the Chain Lake Dental Team.  She is friendly, fun, and great at her job. Helping patients make informed decisions is essential to her practice; she is very thorough. Your oral and overall health is very important to her! Providing quality dental care for all patients, including children and patients with special needs, is something Carla is passionate about. Dr. Carla enjoys participating in organized dentistry as an active member of the NSDA and teaching part-time at the Dalhousie Dental School.


When she’s not at work, Carla is wearing her other favorite hat: being a full-time mom to her 3 young and busy kids. Together with her husband, they enjoy spending time outdoors and taking in all that our great city of Halifax has to offer.
