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, ages 19 and 16. 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 patient lifestyles. My husband and I love to spend time together by watching movies and going for walks with our dog, Oscar. I have a passion for baking, which has led to a slight obsession with Pinterest. We have two wonderful boys, my oldest is in the process of becoming a graphic designer and my youngest is deciding which University to attend while working part-time. I am so blessed to be part of this team and I look forward to meeting you!

In my leisure time, I love spending time with husband, family and friends. We have two beautiful daughters, my oldest is a makeup artist for Estée Lauder and my youngest is attending Queen’s University. Also, I enjoy reading a good book and practicing hot yoga.

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 Josh Donaldson of the Toronto Blue Jays, I’d love to meet you. Otherwise, I look forward to meeting our new and existing patients in the days to come.

ANGELA – REGISTERED DENTAL HYGIENIST
(Currently on Maternity Leave)
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 dental hygienist. I graduated from the Canadian Academy of Dental Health in January 2017. In my free time, I enjoy watching movies with my husband, going to music festivals, eating tacos and cheering on the Blue Jays and Raptors. I am looking forward to helping patients achieve healthy teeth and gums!
