Biography

Dr. Priya Rao has more than 10 years of experience in general and family dentistry, including as the owner of her own private practice. Priya was born in India, where she earned her Bachelors in Science from St. Aloysius College, and her first degree in dentistry (BDS) from the Rajiv Gandhi University of Health Sciences. After getting married, she moved to Singapore to join her Canadian husband. A few years later, they relocated to North America, where Priya entered into the advanced standing DDS program at the University of Minnesota's School of Dentistry in Minneapolis. After graduating, Priya returned to Toronto, receiving her license from the RCDSO shortly thereafter. Priya is a member of the Ontario Dental Association (ODA), Minnesota Dental Association (MDA), American Dental Association (ADA), and the Academy of General Dentistry (AGD). She is currently pursuing a mini-residency in Implantology at TIDE. Priya is passionate about dentistry and her expertise lies in treating patients of all ages, including boisterous 3-year olds and the youthful 90-year olds! In her words - “The best part of my dental practice is the look and radiance on my patient’s face after I have taken care of their pain or dental troubles”. Priya lives in Toronto and during her free time, enjoys painting, reading, gardening and exploring new places along with her husband.

    Dr. Priya Rao was patient, calm, and empathetic when servicing my teeth. I appreciate her attention to detail, determination, communication, and general calm manner. The best possible dentist to have for my journey to a healthier mouth.

    Had a great time there and I wasn't rushed in this appointment! I couldn't make it see Dr. Priya because of a family emergency. But I had another appointment at the same place but with a different doctor. I would definitely recommend this place!

    I was a little nervous but was soon made to feel comfortable as everyone I met in the office was very nice. The hygienist was focused, professional and didn’t rush. She also explained what she was doing. I immediately liked her. The dentist was very pleasant and also did not rush at all during the Examination. I left with a feeling I had had excellent dental care in a very nice atmosphere.

    There was a lot of chatting and getting to know each other. The staff was friendly and welcoming. I was able to relax and the appointment was a suitable time. I did not have to wait very long before my appointment either.
