Get to know us
Gelinas Dental Studio opened in 2017, under the direction of Dr. Andrea Gelinas.
Having traveled the globe since childhood (she’s lived in Mexico, South Korea, the
Philippines and the United States), Dr. Gelinas brings a sense of ease and style to her practice—not often associated with dentistry.
Her attention to detail when designing the chic, brightly lit space can be felt
throughout the office. Taking her patients into consideration when creating the
layout and decor for Gelinas Dental Studio, Dr. Gelinas hopes patients feel
comfortable and do not experience anxiety often associated visiting the dentist. To
create this atmosphere, she and her team added Sonos speakers, set to a level where
patients won’t hear drilling, as well as diffusers to help infuse the space with
relaxing scent, and televisions in the treatment rooms so patients can zone into their current Netflix favourite.
From handpicking finishes, custom creating her own shade of green for her logo and adding books and records from her personal collection to the waiting area, she spared no detail when putting together her dream practice.
Walking into Gelinas Dental Studio feels like walking into a well designed, chic and
relaxed home. “I wanted a clinic that is part of the community. Where people know
they will get an honest opinion based on what you actually need, not what their
insurance covers,” Dr. Gelinas said. Her well-rounded team can cover everything
from regular checkups, to whitening, to dental implants.
With a cozy nook for kids, and Instagram-worthy decor, her no-nonsense, fresh
approach to dentistry is a family-oriented, professional and comfortable experience.
Tanya’s education didn’t stop there. She became passionate about nutrition and taking a holistic approach to overall health and wellness. In 2016, she became a Registered Holistic Nutritionist, and now offers consultations and workshops at the Studio.
Believing that education is key, Tanya is a wealth of knowledge allowing our patients to access both dental and holistic nutrition aspects to overall care.
When Tanya isn’t at the office or creating delicious recipes to share on her blog, she’s likely tending to her call to be in nature, from various camping trips, gardening, taking care of plants or spending time with her animals on the farm she lives on.
