Dr. Kristina Pahuta, DMD

Why did you decide to become a dentist?

“It offered me the perfect combination of biology and creativity, being able to use both my hands and my brain every day, the opportunity to help people and actually see the results of that help in real time!”
Education
Dr. Pahuta attended the University of Toronto for her HonBSc, and continued her professional education at the University of British Columbia for her DMD (Doctor of Medical Dentistry). Dr. Pahuta completed her General Practice Residency at Mt Sinai Hospital, Toronto, and she has been in private practice ever since!
Fun Facts
In her free time, Dr. Pahuta enjoys spending time with her beautiful two-year-old daughter, Adeline.

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?

“Recalling a favourite moment where I have helped someone is overwhelming. For over 35 years I have had the privilege of taking care of generations within families of this practice.”
Fun Facts

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!

Why did you become a dental hygienist?

“Dental hygienist’s job is not limited to teeth cleaning. Oral health is an important indicator of general health. I like to help people stay in good general health by good oral hygiene.”
