Our Team


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.



Priscilla Batista, Dental Assistant

Moving to Canada nearly a decade ago, Priscilla joins us from Brazil, where she was studying social communications with a degree in Journalism. After falling in love with a Canadian, and teaching herself English, she decided to stay here and continue her education in Dental Assisting, graduating in 2016. Priscilla has been with us since opening, and has taken a lead role within the Studio.

When Priscilla is not at the office, she is spending time with her husband, going to the movies or exploring areas of Toronto, via cycling.

Priscilla is also bilingual, speaking Portuguese.


Michelle Silva, Patient Relations

Michelle joined our team June 2018, with 11 years of experience as a dental assistant. She was looking for independence in her career and is loving her role at the Studio as Patient Relations Specialist. Michelle's clinical experience allows her to connect with our patients beyond insurance banter.

When not at the office, she enjoys her time with her 13 year old son Nathaniel, and staying active with yoga, boxing and working out.

Being bilingual, Michelle is an asset to our Portuguese speaking patients.
