MEET OUR TEAM
We are a small team of dedicated professionals
Come see what makes us different!
I am a registered Dental Hygienist who graduated in 1996 from the University of Alberta Dental Hygiene program. I’ve worked over 22 years with many highly skilled senior colleagues which allowed me to broaden my knowledge at dental offices in Edmonton. I am originally from Trinidad and Tobago, and now have lived in Canada for over 35 years.
In my spare time, I love to cook, enjoy dancing, fitness and travel.
At Focus on Smiles, I can achieve my goal of a shared vision of best practises in the dental industry.

Hello, my name is Tierra,
I am a Registered Dental Assistant at Focus on smiles. I joined the team in September 2020 and am blessed to work with such an amazing team each day. I assist Dr. Fialka in changing people’s lives one smile at a time. I get to help achieve the aesthetic and functional goals of each patient and love what I do. When I’m not at work you can catch me working out, going to the dog park with my dog Presley or hiking. Can’t wait to see you at our clinic!
