Dr. Briza Silva
Dr. Briza loves Dentistry with a specific interest in Orthodontics. Since graduating from dental school in 1999, she has been pursuing this passion. In 2005, she completed her MSc in Dentistry and received her diploma in Orthodontics from the Federal University of Rio de Janeiro (Brazil).
In 2006 she moved to Canada and a few months later started teaching Orthodontics at McGill University in the Faculty of Dentistry.
After earning her DMD (Doctor of Dental Medicine) degree in 2011 from McGill, she has been thrilled to combine her teaching and private practice experiences. Currently Dr. Briza is a clinical instructor at the University of Toronto in the Faculty of Dentistry (Discipline of Orthodontics). The connection to the University, in addition to other continuing education courses, allows her to constantly provide excellent orthodontic care while furthering her expertise. Dr. Briza strongly believes that evidenced based approaches are essential in orthodontics and she strives to provide the most up to date care to all her patients.
Working in orthodontics means a lot to Dr. Briza due to the positive impact she has on her patients. It is continually rewarding to observe the changes in each patient, as they occur over the course of the treatment. She works collaboratively with her patients, discussing treatment details while listening and answering questions, to ensure that all patients are confident and comfortable throughout their treatment.
Dr. Briza is fluent in Portuguese, French and English. When she is not in the office, she enjoys spending time outdoors with her sons Thomas & Mateo and her dog Gucci.
