Our Team


Dr Cassia Braulio (DDS)


Dr. Cassia, received her Doctor of Dental Surgery degree in 1995, in Sao Paulo , Brazil, where she was born and raised.  Right after finishing  school she was accepted  to the Endodontics Specialty  course, which granted her root canal specialist degree.  Parallel to working at her office work, she was also involved in teaching at the University Paulista, Faculty of Dentistry, in Sao Paulo.  She was a clinical instructor at the Department of Medically compromised children.

In a search for a better quality of life, she immigrated to Canada and in 2004  she was accepted in the Dental Qualifying Program at the University of Western of Ontario, where she validated her DDS  degree. Since then, she has been practicing Dentistry in Canada.

However it was long before  Canada that her interest in Dentistry surfaced. When she was only 16 years old, she accepted a  volunteer summer job at a dental office. She had the chance to work with two amazing individuals, both passionate professors that loved teaching. Their passion for dentistry extended to her and Dentistry has been with her ever since.

She has also been involved in teaching university students at clinical level, at the University of Toronto, Faculty of Dentistry, Restorative Department.

When Dr Cassia is not working, she is spending quality time with her family, friends and pets. 

She looks forward to meeting you.
