Dr. Huda Abu-Jarad, DDS (Dentist)

Dr. Huda is best known for her kind and gentle manner to both her patients and her staff. She earned her Doctor of Dental Surgery (DDS ) Degree from the University of Alberta in 2005 .
Prior to that, she had completed her Bachelor of Dental Surgery in Jordan in 2000 ( Ranked Second in her class ) , In addition to a one year residency  at Dammam Central Hospital the following year.  

 Upon graduation, Dr. Huda worked in Sioux Lookout, Ontario for two years. She provided much needed dental service within the Sioux Lookout Dental Clinic, the O.R. program in the community hospital and to some 25 isolated First Nation communities.

In addition to this, she was dedicated and very keen on providing the students of Pelican Falls High School (a boarding school) with comprehensive dental care before they went back home to their northern communities, an effort that required her presence at the school full-time one week each month. Huda obtained hospital privileges at the Meno Ya Win Health Centre in Sioux Lookout treating pediatric and senior patients under general anesthesia.

Huda’s experience up north proved to her first hand how one bad dental experience can traumatize a child for life. Therefore, children’s experiences in her dental chair are of the utmost importance to her. Her passion for dentistry is enhanced by her gentle and professional chair side manner which puts her patients at ease.

Dr. Huda practices dentistry with integrity and knowledge and is committed on providing the highest quality of dental care to her patients ( in the most conservative way ) while remaining sensitive to their fears and concerns.  The majority of Dr. Huda’s patients have been by word of mouth and referral by her committed patients (Thank you). 

Dr.Huda has two little girls ( Jenna and Leila ), If she is not in the office or at a course you will find her cuddling with them. 
Due to her strong family values , Dr.Huda understands how your time is precious. Therefore, she will do her absolute best to see you on time, and treat you and your family the way she would like her own family to be treated.

She is a member of :

1. Canadian Dental Association
2. Ontario Dental Association
3. Ottawa Dental Society
4. Ottawa Women's Dental Study Club
5. Academy of General Dentistry 
6. American Orthodontic Association.

She is endlessly involved in continuing education to better serve her family of patients.

Tanya King (Dental Administrator/CDA II)

Hi! My name is Tanya. I have been in the dental field since 1997. I graduated from college in Halifax, Nova Scotia but I am a true Cape Bretoner through and through! I worked as a Dental Assistant for the first 10 years and the remainder as a Dental Administrator. My transition to becoming a Dental Administrator has allowed me to develop stronger relationships with our patients. I really enjoy getting to know you and your family. I am also here to help you begin the process of becoming a patient at our clinic. I look forward to hearing from you!

In my spare time, I love spending time with my family. I have two beautiful children, Emma and Carter, who are my pride and joy! I also enjoy volunteering for my son's hockey team, snow mobiling and when the weather permits, motorcycling.
I'm a member of the Ontario Dental Assistants Association as well as the Canadian Dental Assistants Association. I attend Continuing Education courses throughout the year so I can continue to gain more knowledge about dentistry.
