We are so incredibly blessed to work with a very diverse group of people. With years of combined experience, you wouldn’t believe some of the tales this team could tell. Never-the-less, we all come together with one simple goal – to provide care that allows you and your family to have healthy teeth and gums.
DR. ROSEMARIE SIA – DENTAL ASSOCIATE
Dr. Sia received her Dental Medicine Degree from the University of the East in Manila, Philippines (the same school from which Dr. Yabut obtained her degree) in 1991. She did her postgraduate studies in Orthodontics at the State University. She was in dental practice for more than 20 years before migrating to Canada in 2012. She immediately obtained her license to practice Dentistry here in Canada.
Dr. Sia is happily married with two children. In her spare time, she loves to cook, watch movies, and create arts and crafts with her family. She also has a passion for traveling to different places.
Our office is thrilled that she is helping us achieve our goal of giving our patients the healthiest teeth and gums possible!
RHIA – SCHEDULE COORDINATOR
Hi there! I’m Rhia and I am the Scheduling Coordinator. I have been a part of Dr. Yabut’s team since 2002. I find my position to be very rewarding as I get to know many people and their families. I book appointments to ensure the schedule best meets our patients’ lifestyles. My husband and I love to spend time together by watching movies and walking around different trails or just driving around and exploring nearby towns. I love to bake and cook because it relaxes me. Our eldest son and our daughter in law lives in Guelph and our youngest son lives and works in Toronto. When we get a chance to be together, we love to play Scrabble and other board games. I am so blessed to be part of this team and I look forward to meeting you and your families!
IRISH – DENTAL ASSISTANT Level II
Hi! My name is Irish, and I am one of Dr. Yabut’s Dental Assistants. I started working with Dr. Yabut after I finished my externship in November 2021. I graduated from the Level 2 Dental Assisting Program at Medix College in Brampton. I chose to become a Dental Assistant because it offers the opportunity to continually learn and grow. Patient care, patient education and patient comfort are always at the forefront.
In my free time, I enjoy spending time with my family and friends watching movies, cooking, and going on road trips every summer.
I am so blessed to be a part of this wonderful team, and am also constantly thankful for the little things in life that remind me just how lucky I am.
I look forward to meeting all of you!
ELISHA – DENTAL ASSISTANT Level II
Hello! My name is Elisha. I am Dr. Yabut’s newest Dental Assistant, as well as her youngest daughter. I just recently graduated from Westervelt College at the beginning of 2022, and I am so excited to finally be able to officially join the team. Growing up, I have so many fond memories of helping out in the office, and I’ve had the pleasure to meet a lot of the families who grew up coming here as well. My hope is to help each patient feel heard, comfortable, and well taken care of during each visit. In my free time, I enjoy doing crafts with my son and trying out new food at local restaurants here in Guelph with my husband.
I am really looking forward to meeting and getting to know all of you!
PAM – RECARE COORDINATOR
Greetings! My name is Pamela and I am the Recare Coordinator. I started working with Dr. Yabut in 2008. I have previous experience working as a dental assistant. I left the dental field for a time to work with the geriatric population and pursue other interests. I am committed to providing a welcoming and caring atmosphere for our patients and helping them achieve the best oral health possible. My husband and I love the outdoors, enjoy long walks with our dogs, and long rides on our motorcycle. I am big sports fan! If you know Patrick Mahomes of the Kansas City Chiefs, I’d love to meet you.
Otherwise, I look forward to meeting our new and existing patients in the days to come.
MARILENA – FINANCE COORDINATOR
Hello there! My name is Marilena, and I am the Financial Coordinator. I have years of experience in the dental field and I am pleased to be a part of Dr. Yabut’s team! I have always enjoyed working in the dental field as it offers the opportunity to meet and work with people of all ages and backgrounds. I was born and raised in Guelph, but my background is Italian – which I am fluent in. I love gardening, watching the Blue Jays with my husband and spending time with my family, especially my granddaughters.
My passion always has been helping others, cooking and going for walks. I look forward to meeting all of you!
ANGELA – REGISTERED DENTAL HYGIENIST
Hi! My name is Angela and I am a Registered Dental Hygienist. As you can see the resemblance, I’m Dr. Yabut’s daughter. I joined the team in 2014 as part of the front desk staff and marketing. That’s when I realized the impact our office was making in our patient’s lives so I decided to go back to school to become a registered dental hygienist. I graduated from the Canadian Academy of Dental Health in January 2017. In my free time, I enjoy spending time with my husband and our 3 sons, eating tacos, going to concerts and cheering on the Toronto Raptors.
I am looking forward to helping patients achieve healthy teeth and gums!
KRISTA – REGISTERED DENTAL HYGIENIST
Hello! My name is Krista and I am a registered dental hygienist. I am a recent graduate from Southern Ontario Dental College in Ancaster where I achieved my dental hygiene diploma with honours. Before becoming a dental hygienist, I worked as a dental assistant and graduated from the dental assisting program at Durham College in 2017. In my spare time, I love cuddling with my cat, hanging with family and friends, and travelling. I have been a patient at Dr. Yabut’s office since I was a little girl and I am so excited to be a part of her team and I can’t wait to meet you all.
I have a passion for oral health and providing clients with the best possible care.
