Dr. Marcelina Benedito

Dr. Marcelina Benedito was born and raised in Brazil. At the age of 18 years old she moved to Canada to obtain her diplomas in language studies. She is fluent in English, French, Portuguese and has also completed one year of Spanish language studies at McGill University in the year 2000.

She decided to stay, and then went on to graduate with Honours in Health Sciences, which led her to early acceptance into the Faculty of Dentistry at McGill University. She earned her degree of Doctor of Medical Dentistry in 2003 and has been practicing as an associate dentist for the past ten years.

Her natural interest in cosmetics and all areas of dentistry motivates her to keep current with the dental field. She received both an Invisilign certification and a diploma from the Comprehensive Straight Wire and Functional Orthodontics Programme in 2009 and 2010, respectively.

Dr. Benedito is a proud mother of three kids, who have inspired her to found The Tooth Fairy Dentistry.
