Our Team


Dr. Andrea Gelinas

Dr. Andrea Gelinas, DDS

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 - qualities not often associated with dentistry.

Taking her patients into consideration, Dr. Gelinas meticulously planned the layout and decor for her dream practice; from handpicking finishes and creating her own shade of green for the logo, to adding books and records from her personal collection to the waiting area. No detail was spared to ensure the patients' comfort: Sonos speakers are set to a level where patients won’t hear drilling, diffusers infuse the space with relaxing scent, and televisions are provided in the treatment rooms so patients can watch Netflix during their appointments.

Walking into Gelinas Dental Studio feels like walking into a chic and relaxed home. “I want a clinic that is part of the community - where people know they will get an honest opinion based on what they actually need, not what their insurance covers,” Dr. Gelinas said. 


Tanya De Sousa, Registered Dental Hygienist

Tanya joined our team with over 10 years of dental experience, starting as a Certified Dental Assistant in 2005, and obtaining her Diploma in Dental Hygiene in 2011.

Tanya is also passionate about nutrition, and takes 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 access to both dental and holistic nutritional aspects for 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 camping to gardening.
