Meet The Face Behind White Tooth Dental
I’m Dr. Kristina Pahuta, the proud owner of White Tooth Dental. I look forward to sharing my story. I hope that you will enjoy getting to know me better.
Ever since I was young, I have had a passion for helping people. I became a dentist because I find it’s a nice balance of art and science, and I like that the field offers me the opportunity to help people without having to go to medical school.
I attended the University of Toronto for my HonBSc and continued my professional education at the University of British Columbia. I then returned home to complete my general practice residency at Mt Sinai Hospital, Toronto and worked in and around the GTA (Brantford, the Beach) before taking over this practice.
This office was established by the former owner Dr. James Kiproff over thirty years ago, and I was fortunate enough to be the one he chose to take over the business when he retired just this year. I returned from my 2nd maternity leave in April 2022.
Since I took the reins, our team has grown, and we have brought on a 2nd hygienist for two days a week as we continue to grow and welcome new patients.
The aspect of my work that I most enjoy is my ability to help patients find, achieve and maintain their best smiles. My business philosophy is based on preventative family dentistry and is focused entirely on you.
As an individual, I believe what sets me apart from others is my commitment to trust, honesty, integrity, ethics and community.
I attribute my success to my team, the fantastic patients that I inherited with the office and the ones I have gained as we have grown.
Helping get nervous or embarrassed patients comfortable at the dental office and being part of the team to help get their oral health care on track has given me immense satisfaction over the years. Plus, any time I do a front tooth filling, and my patient can’t see where it is and loves their smile again is a close second.
When I am not at work, I am usually occupied by caring for and spending time with my family - my daughters, Adeline and Celeste and my fantastic husband, Aaron. We enjoy getting out for walks, spending time up north at my parent’s cottage and reading together.
I have enjoyed sharing my story about the things which matter to me and how they influence the way I do business.
