Dr. Kristina Pahuta, DMD
Why did you decide to become a dentist?
In her free time, Dr. Pahuta enjoys spending time with her family- her husband Aaron and three-year-old daughter, Adeline.
Dr. Pahuta and her family welcomed another girl to the family- Celeste- in October 2021- she looks forward to welcoming the newest WTD family member.
If Harry Potter counts as a “Super Hero,” that would be her favorite! Dr. Pahuta loves Harry Potter because “he’s truly magic and a brave, up-standing person who does the right thing no matter how difficult it may be.”

Mary Buttigieg, RDH
Why do you love being a dental hygienist?
Mary graduated from George Brown College in the Dental Hygiene Programme in 1981.
The dental field attracted her primarily because it was health related. Mary was always drawn towards health care. Dental hygiene proved to be a perfect fit. She loves working in a profession which gives her the opportunity to be intellectual, meticulous and empathic.
Mary loves working with families through the generations. The office’s “Smile Board” displays photos of our young clients taken after their dental check-up visits. Many parents of these children recognize it from their childhood visits to this same office.
If Mary could be a “Super Hero,” she would be Elastagirl! Mary admires her because she is strong, FLEXIBLE, and can multi-task. She gets the job done. And…she is the only adult Superhero referred to as girl!
CHRISTINA NGUYEN, CDA II
Why did you become a dental assistant?
“I wanted to get my foot in the door in dentistry so I decided to apply to become a CDA (certified dental assistant). I ended up really enjoying learning about oral health and dental procedures. Meeting new people and having different tasks to do each day keeps it exciting!”
Her favourite superhero is Spider-Man- he’s “the perfect balance between superhero and regular person”, which is one reason “Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse” is one of her favourite movies.
Azhia Doran, FDA
What is your favourite moment helping someone?
My favourite part about helping someone is when I get to see the smile on their face!
Azhia started her career in dentistry in 2021.
She enjoys being a nail technician during her spare time!
Favourite superhero: Iron Man because “he’s extremely smart, confident and has a good heart.”
