Clinic Staff


Registered Dental Hygienist

Elspeth is an enthusiastic, charismatic and personable Registered Restorative Dental Hygienist. She started her dental career in 2003 as a dental assistant in a general and pedodontic practice in Montreal, Qc. while attending John Abbott College’s renowned, accredited Dental Hygiene program. She then moved from Montreal to Toronto to work as a Registered Restorative Dental Hygienist.  With 10 years of dental experience she has chosen to pursue orthodontics, which has captivated her attention ever since she started Dental Hygiene. Elspeth’s primary goal is to make the patients of the Leaside Orthodontic Centre’s visits as comfortable and as pleasant as possible, while providing them with pertinent information, in order to guide them successfully through their orthodontic treatments. She speaks both French and English fluently and enjoys such sports as hockey, skiing, tennis, golf and surfing. When Elspeth is not working she tries to travel as much as possible with her husband and two children. Keep your eyes open as you might see her and her family on Bayview as she is a fellow ‘Leasider’.


Registered Dental Hygienist

Newsha joined the Leaside Orthodontic Centre team as a Registered Dental Hygienist in November 2018.  A graduate of the University of Toronto, she holds both a Bachelor’s and Master’s in Science, and a degree in Dental Hygiene from Oxford College.  Patients will find that Newsha has a very gentle touch, and a lovely chairside demeanour.

When not in the office, Newsha enjoys skiing in the winter, swimming in summer, and reading and running all year round.


Dental Assistant Level II

Nevada graduated as a Dental Assistant, with honours, from Durham College with a Level II Certification.  Working with Dr. Arat and her team at Leaside Orthodontics has taught Nevada a lot, but it is also a daily reminder that choosing to work in orthodontics was absolutely the best decision.

Although she is a Dental Assistant by career, Nevada is an athlete and sports fanatic at heart.  A former provincial level soccer player, she has also enjoyed competing at high levels in hockey, basketball, volleyball, race kart driving and boxing.

Now, Nevada and her husband are trying to keep up with their active three year old daughter and her love of sports, which is definitely hereditary!


Dental Assistant Level II

Dora has been working in the field of dentistry for several years, and recently joined Leaside Orthodontic Centre as a Level II Certified Dental Assistant. She loves working as part of a team, ensuring that everyone around here has a smile on their face.

When she is not working, Dora enjoys exploring the city on foot (being relatively new to Toronto), spending time with friends, and watching foreign-language films.
