A Message from Dr. Paulo Viana

Dr. Paulo Viana

Thank you for taking the time to get to know me. I do hope to get to know you better someday. Personally, I am a pretty regular guy. I love my beautiful wife Maureen and my two boys Braedan and Ethan. I was born on the mainland of Portugal and raised in Halifax, Nova Scotia, where I completed my schooling at Dalhousie University in 2001. Professionally, I love helping my patients, the people in my community and the staff of Viana Dental to achieve their best and guiding them to results they never thought possible. It’s my belief that everyone deserves the option to have health and an ideal smile. It is my job as an owner-dentist to ensure you have this in a safe, caring, personalized and affordable way.

Respectfully, Paulo Viana DDS

Maureen Viana: Registered Restorative Dental Hygienist

Maureen Viana

Maureen has been in the dental industry since June 2000 when she graduated from Dental Assisting at George Brown College. Since then, she has continued her education by graduating from both the Dental Hygiene and Restorative Dental Hygiene programs at George Brown College.

Maureen continues to develop as a Restorative Dental Hygienist to help improve and grow the practice due to her love of continuing education and the help of her husband.
She has 2 beautiful boys: Braedan, who is 8, and Ethan, who is 5. She loves to be involved in their activities such as coaching for U4 soccer, on the ice for mites hockey, in the stands cheering for the Mount Brydges Cougars – go Cougars! – and participating on the parent council as Treasurer for the last 3 years at Our Lady of Lourdes School in Delaware.

Being able to give back to her community is important to Maureen, and being a part of the Komoka-Kilworth optimist group allows her to participate in community events such as the Christmas Breakfast with Santa, the 5km Easter Dash, and many more events.

Her future aspirations include Dentistry from the Heart (which provides dentistry to patients in need who could not otherwise afford it), going to an underdeveloped country to provide dentistry with her children and fellow teammates and, coming up very soon, celebrating her 10-year anniversary with her loving and very supportive husband.

As always, she will continue to work on herself and remember that she has been very blessed in her life with all the family, friends, teammates, and wonderful patients who surround her.

Dr. Belal Aloul

Like most people, growing up I was scared of visiting the dentist. It wasn’t until later on when I finally decided to face my fear and get my teeth looked at that I came to the realization that not only was it not bad, but also that it’s something great to do. Growing up in London, I decided to stay in the city and study biology and medical sciences at Western University. Afterward I moved on to study what I wanted to do: dentistry at Schulich School of Medicine & Dentistry. Working in the Greater Toronto Area for the past year has been a great experience and I’ve learned a lot; however, it’s nice to be back home in London.

I got lucky in the sense that dentistry turned out to be something I really enjoy, and I take pride in achieving the best results possible for my patients. I like to spend time attending dental education courses to keep up to date with recent breakthroughs in dentistry and further my knowledge in the field.

Growing up as part of a big family, family values are important to me. In my free time, I like spending time with family and staying active by exercising and playing soccer and basketball. I also enjoy travelling and learning about new cultures and trying new foods.

Since graduating from Schulich School of Medicine & Dentistry, it’s also been enjoyable volunteering from time to time with their Dental Outreach program DOCS, where it’s also nice to reconnect with some faculty members and help some of the less fortunate patients in the city.

I have been a proud member of Viana Dental since July 2007. I grew up in Tillsonburg Ontario and completed my level 2 dental assisting at Durham College in Oshawa On. Still unsure of what career path I wanted to follow, I returned to college and completed my Executive administration at Fanshawe college in 2010. After completing my program, my true passion for the dental field asserted itself and I was able to take my dental background with my administrative skills and combine the 2 to grow into the position of Treatment Coordinator and Administrative team leader.

I am an avid reader and cannot pass up a good novel! I am overjoyed to see our office continue to grow with new and improved ways to provide excellent care to our clients. I look forward to being able to assist with any financial or treatment concerns our clients may have in the future, and welcome new smiles into our office.

Hello, I’m Jessa and I’m a dental hygienist that loves working each day to try and improve people’s smiles. Ever since joining Dr. Viana’s team, I’ve felt I’ve found my home office.

I grew up in Strathroy and took Dental Hygiene at Niagara College. I moved back to London after school to be close to my family who I hold near and dear to my heart. In my spare time, you’ll find me outside playing catch with my boyfriend or cuddled up on the couch with my cats and a glass of wine.

Around the office, you’ll hear me singing along to one of my favourite songs or trying to make anyone laugh. I look forward to meeting you and your family and making you feel a part of the Viana team!

Hello, my name is Melissa, and I’m one of the Restorative Dental Hygienists at Viana Dental.  I’ve been working for Dr. Viana for 12 years!  I graduated with honours from George Brown College’s Restorative Dental Hygiene program, and from Canadore College for Dental Hygiene. Having been in the dental field for 18 years, although I began on a different career path, I’m happy I made the switch and have been very rewarded by this career. I also volunteer a lot in both my community and children’s school, and tutor on the side with kids.  I’ve been married for 16 years now and have two amazing kids. Both of my boys are heavily into sports and most of my spare time is driving them to various practices, games and races. As a family we love to bike (road/mountain) and be outdoors together for play and travel. I can’t forget to include the family pet too; Brie, our cute little dog! Many of our existing patients will recognize my face, and I’m always happy to help you. I’m also always excited to meet new patients; introducing you to our wonderful staff and offering a great dental experience.

Hi, I’m Michelle, and I’ve dreamed about being a Dental Hygienist since the young age of 4! I have been in the dental profession for over 16 years; first as a Dental Assistant and Receptionist before graduating as a Dental Hygienist in 2005. I joined the Viana dental team in 2013. I value my Faith, Family, Friends and Flossing! I love being involved in the community and helping people. Alongside my professional career I have participated in and helped run and many organizations and groups, including Toastmasters; which is no surprise as I love to speak. I have spoken at many new mothers groups and worked with the Diabetes Association to educate on the connection between dentistry, mouth health and whole body wellness.  My family of 4 has welcomed our 3rd baby boy in July of 2015 and I look forward to helping my family at home and the office grow. I love building long lasting relationships along the way!  My ultimate goal at Viana Dental is to empower my patients with knowledge so they will care for their oral health and general well being; as flossing should be everyone’s friend!

My favourite part of my job is meeting and learning about so many new patients that come into our office. The best part of joining the Viana team is having such great coworkers to work alongside.
