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.

Education & Experience

I grew up in Sao Paulo, Brazil, where I earned my DDS degree in 1995 and my orthodontics specialty degree in 2008. In 2014 I came to Canada to join my family here in Ontario.

I am certified by the National Dental Examining Board of Canada (NDEB) and a proud member of the Royal College of Dental Surgeons of Ontario (RCDSO) and the Ontario Dental Association (ODA).

Practice Philosophy

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.

Outside Interests

I love spending time with my family and travelling to new places. I love to explore new cultures while getting to know the local people and their cuisine!

Lucy

Administative Assitant

I am one of the newest team members at Iris Dentistry and to dentistry in general. I graduated from Paulista University in Brazil in 2006 with a degree in Business Administration and an MBA in Marketing.  Dentistry is a new world for me, but I dove in head first and I am loving it!  What I love the most about this new field is interacting with patients. Plus, I love to learn! Everything was new for me, but I find that I excel because I truly care about my job and about our patients.

My aim is to offer exceptional service to every person that walks through our door and to ensure I offer the best I can in a warm caring environment.

In my spare time I love spending time with my husband and two young boys. I love camping, sushi, movies, and have a Netflix addiction.

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.

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.

Tammy

Administrative & Clinical Assistant

I’ve always loved the heath and the education fields. I have a degree in early childhood education from Brazil and when I moved to Canada with my husband, I decided that I wanted to have new experiences. I am currently working on my dental assisting certificate from Niagara College and am thrilled to combine my two loves with this great opportunity of working at Iris Dentistry.

What thrills me about the dental world is the everyday challenges that push me to learn and improve myself. I want to make sure patients are comfortable and confident by providing them with the best care.

When I’m not helping others, I love travelling to new places and meeting new people. I enjoy spending time with my family, trying new restaurants, and watching ‘badly ranked movies’ as determined by my husband.
