Dr. Sandra FarberDentist
Upon graduating from Tufts University Dental School in Boston, Massachusetts, I returned to my home in Toronto where I started practicing dentistry. At the time I practiced general dentistry and also volunteered my time as a dentist at the Shout clinic for underprivileged children in Toronto. It was there that I learned the value of what I studied in dental school. Giving these young children back their self confidence with a beautiful smile or just getting them back to health made my career choice justified. Since then, I enjoy family dentistry with a special focus on children’s dentistry.

Dr. Baldassarra graduated with Honours from the Faculty of Dentistry at the University of Western Ontario. Subsequently, she was selected to complete an Advanced Education in General Dentistry residency program in Los Angeles at UCLA. This residency provided her with advanced training in a variety of dental specialties, while treating complex cases involving crowns, bridges, implants and veneers. She enjoys providing a full range of dental treatments, including Invisalign, to patients of all ages. Her goal is to make your dental visit as positive as possible by taking the time to communicate clearly so every patient feels comfortable and well-informed about the treatment they are receiving.

Sylvia HartOffice Manager
Although it dates me to say that I have worked in the dental industry for 30 years, I still enjoy every minute of it. I have been the office manager at Woodbridge Dental since it’s opening in 2001, so I have had the opportunity to get to know all of our patients and their wonderful families. When i’m not working, I love baking and spending time with my 2 lovely grandchildren.
Tammy FortisDental Hygienist
Over 20 years as a dental hygienist has made me a master tooth scaler. When you are in my chair, I just want you to relax and enjoy the ride. When I’m not at the office, you can usually find me at the local hockey rink with my 3 boys.
Rhonda FarberDental Hygienist
I have been practicing Dental Hygiene at Woodbridge Dental since the opening. My extensive experience in periodontal therapy and ongoing continuing education has provided a positive impact on the overall health and well-being of my patients. I’ve developed lasting relationships and I’m grateful to be able to do what I love every day in an enjoyable work experience with my sister Dr.Sandra and my brother-in law Dr.Mike.
Even though i was born and raised in toronto, my italian family upbringing has maintained a lot of my family’s cultural roots, which has helped me mesh well with the Woodbridge community. I have worked as an office administrator and dental assistant for over 20 years . My favourite part of my job is helping patients feel at ease in the dental environment and of course seeing our young patients grow up into dental conscience teenagers, with beautiful looking teeth. In my free time, I enjoy spending time with my two teenage children and relaxing at home with friends and family.
Mina MelarganoDental Hygienist
I graduated from George Brown College in 1999 and I have been part of our team for over 10 years now. I like to provide my patients with knowledge on how to achieve good oral health which will ultimately help them
maintain their overall health. I love to provide a gentle and quiet atmosphere so you can relax for your appointment. When I’m not scaling away on teeth, I love to swim and chill by the pool with my kids.
Alex da SilvaDental Hygienist
Many years ago I was a patient of Mike and Sandra’s at Woodbridge Dental. They were always so nice, relaxed and caring, This inspired my to follow my dream and become a dental hygienist. Now here I am sitting in the care givers seat and love every day.
Susie SarafinovskiDental Hygienist
After almost 10 years as a dental assistant and another 15 as a hygienist, I think I have seen it all. Just watch T.V, relax and let me scale away. In my spare time I enjoy my kids and playing the piano.
I am one of the friendly faces to greet you when you walk in the door. I feel very lucky to be part of the team at woodbridge dental centre and enjoy working with the wonderful patients to help provide information and care. When I’m not in the office, I love to cook and read.
Versa JoshiDental Hygienist
After many years of being in the dental industry, I like to think of myself as a traveller/dental hygienist. Although I love to educate my patients about how to achieve good oral health, I love to chat about amazing destinations around the world. See you soon.
I am knowledgable in all aspects of the dental field, from dental assisting which I have done for many years to front desk co-ordinator. I take pride in what i can do for our patients and try to make your experience as pleasant as possible. In my spare time i enjoy my flowers and travelling with family.

I will always give you a hand to hold if you need and help patients feel comfortable here in our office. During my spare time i love travelling, dancing and family time. I’m blessed to be part of such a great team!
Patricia PlumbDental Hygienist
Although I probably live the farthest, the 1 hour commute for the last 10 years is worth it, to be part of such a great team. Knowing that Mike and Sandra are so friendly and genuinely care about the well being of their patients makes working here a pleasure. If I’m not around then you’ll catch me at a hockey rink or on the ski slopes.
