Please accept a warm welcome to Iris Dentistry, where your oral and overall health, and your well-being, are first and foremost for every member of my team.

Education & Experience

I was born in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, earned my dental degree in 2002, and have been helping patients and their families ever since. After completing my degree, I pursued an additional 2-year residency at two of the busiest Emergency Hospitals in Rio de Janeiro. In 2008 I obtained my master’s degree in Clinical Dentistry and joined the Dental Department of SickKids Hospital® in 2010. As a Clinical Fellow at SickKids, I provided care to medically complex patients while working closely with various dental and medical specialists including oral and plastic surgeons, prosthodontists, and pediatric dentists.

I am a proud member of the Royal College of Dental Surgeons of Ontario and the Ontario Dental Association, and love being a Waterloo dentist!

Practice Philosophy

Dentistry is my passion. I want to offer the best care possible in a caring, warm, and friendly environment. That’s why I handpicked my team to ensure that everyone in the office gives the same level of care to everyone who walks through the door. As a general dentist, I enjoy providing for both the needs of families and offering a wide range of cosmetic treatments designed to make you smile with confidence.

Outside Interests

In my spare time I enjoy participating in outdoor activities with family, including swimming, cycling, skating, and walking/playing with the dogs. I also love working and giving back to our community.

I was first inspired by my uncle to pursue dentistry and love helping others enjoy a life without pain or dental issues. I have been practicing as a general dentist for over 20 years and enjoy the many options that the field of dentistry holds, especially cosmetic enhancements. I love being a dentist in Waterloo and I am committed to providing your family with the highest level of care and satisfaction.

Lucy

Administative Assistant

I earned my degree in Business Administration from Paulista University in 2003 in Brazil and completed a post grad in Marketing in 2005. I joined the team at Iris Dentistry in March of 2018 and they became my “working family”. I feel very fortunate to be part of this amazing team.

My main goal at Iris Dentistry is to offer exceptional customer care to every patient who walks through the door and to ensure they have the best possible experience with us. Watching people smiling after their dental treatment is completed really warms my heart.

I believe there are not many people who can truly say they love what they do: I truly love what I do!!!

In my spare time I enjoy camping and watching movies with my husband and three young boys. I also love going to restaurants to eat sushi.

Rebecca

Dental Receptionist

I am the newest member at Iris Dentistry and this is my first experience working within the dental community. I attended the University of Windsor, where I studied Human Kinetics before entering the work force. I have had many jobs geared towards customer service, and I truly derive satisfaction from helping others. This experience has been a delightful challenge and an amazing learning opportunity. I look forward to learning and perfecting new skills each day so that I am better equipped to serve the needs of our patients.

When I am not helping others, I can often be found in a quiet corner reading a book or working on a new art project. I also enjoy spending my spare time with family and friends.

Jenny 

Registered Dental Hygienist

I started in the dental profession as a Dental Assistant in 2000, then returned to school to further my education as a Registered Dental Hygienist in 2003.

My working motto is: “Your smile is your logo, your personality is your business card, how you leave others feeling after having an experience with you becomes your trademark.

I have passion for what I do. Because I care for my patients as individuals, not just their teeth, I love changing people’s lives and making a difference in their day. My patients are not only patients, they are my friends and I devote the whole appointment to ensuring they will receive the best care possible.

I joined Iris Dentistry as a team player in 2017 and will be one of the three hygienists you meet while in the office.

After office hours, I can often be found year-round at an arena enjoying hockey or lacrosse with my husband and boys.

Deb

Registered Dental Hygienist

In 1978 I began my journey into dentistry as I began my career as a Certified Dental Assistant. In 1983 I expanded my knowledge to become a Registered Dental Hygienist.

My diverse and lengthy career has not dimmed my passion for dental profession.

It is always my goal to provide the best individual care and experience. I look forward to getting to know people as individuals and am honoured to be part of this terrific team.

In my off hours you will find my husband and I exploring a reef or a ship wreck as I fill my love for scuba diving. I am active in dog rescue, both volunteering for and fostering.

Cynthia

Dental Assistant

I am a dental assistant with 30 years’ experience in dentistry. I graduated with honors at Ontario Business College and later extended my education at Western in London, taking a preventative dental assistant course so I could expand my duties of patient care.

I love my career and interacting with our family of patients. My goal is to give special care to patients to make them feel as comfortable as possible.

When I’m not helping others love their smiles, I enjoy festivals, live music, and backyard barbecues with friends and family.
