VaniaRegistered Dental Hygienist
Vania began her dental career in 2001 and joined our team in 2011. She has a bachelor’s degree and has completed additional training in brain trauma, concussion and dementia, infection control and safety, smoking cessation with periodontal disease, laser use in periodontics, autoimmunity and inflammation in periodontics, and dental hygiene therapeutics in local anesthesia. Vania has a background in biology/biochemistry and 18 years experience in periodontics. She enjoys understanding the process of periodontal disease on a “micro” level as well as the inflammatory response and how it affects the individual. The critical thinking behind each diagnosis is what makes Vania’s career in dentistry most fulfilling.
In her free time, Vania enjoys exploring the philosophy of human behavior and evolution. She loves Russian classical music like Sergei Prokofiev’s Romeo and Juliet, which is so powerful that it gives Vania chills. She also loves teas; a shared cup of tea with another is one of life’s true beauties. Vania has an open mind for everyone. You never know the difficulties of that individual’s life, and the more we understand one another, the closer we become and evolve as a species.
