Certified Dental Assistant

Chantal’s warm smile and gentle hands assist Dr. Tan in all aspects of patient treatment, especially in making sure patients remain comfortable and relaxed during procedures. She also sterilizes and manages our orthodontic instruments, performs equipment maintenance, keeps patient records, and provides essential oral hygiene instructions to patients. Chantal says the best part of her work is getting to know each patient and developing friendships with them, as they move through the treatment process.

A New Brunswick native, Chantal came to Ottawa in 1992. She is from a family of five sisters and four brothers, making it natural for her to connect so easily with our younger patients. Chantal and her daughter share their lives with a dog named Fiona. When not in the office, Chantal loves being with her family and friends, as well as camping and walking.





Filomena is always ready for a quick chat to learn what’s happening in patients’ lives. Hers is the friendly voice you have heard greeting you by name when you call us. Loving her work, she says that the most rewarding aspects are getting to know the patients and watching their self-confidence increase as their new smiles are created.

Filomena and her husband, Carlos, welcome international students into their home, providing exposure to the English language and the wonderful multicultural community that is Ottawa. She is an excellent cook and enjoys creating new recipes as well as learning about the food traditions of other cultures. Always keeping busy, Filomena loves dancing, traveling, and fashion.
