Biography

Hi, my name is Dr. Amaro! Please allow me to introduce myself. I completed a DMD degree from Tufts University School of Dental Medicine, in Boston. Before attending dental school, I also completed an Honors Bachelor of Science degree at University of Waterloo, and a Bachelor of Education at the University of Toronto Institute for Studies in Education. I previously worked as a clinical teaching assistant at Tufts, where I had the privilege to share my knowledge with other students. It was this experience that sparked my interest in teaching leading me to take on a clinical instructor role at the University of Toronto School of Dentistry. I love improving people’s self-esteem by helping them achieve a beautiful smile, and relieve their pain. I keep enhancing my dental training, earning certifications in Invisalign®, CEREC one day crowns, Physics Forceps, a certificate in moderate sedation, and more! I am currently a member of the Ontario Dental Association, the Royal College of Dental Surgeons, the Toronto Academy of Dentistry, and the Academy of General Dentistry. I enjoy staying fit, NCAA basketball, classic movies, traveling, and I can’t get enough of playing board games. I have an awesome dog named Fenway and I love to take him to the beach so he can fetch and swim. I dream of someday climbing Mt. Kilimanjaro.

Why should patients choose you as their provider instead of others in the area?

We love our patients. Your comfort and quality care are our top priority. Not only is our staff knowledgeable but we strive to make your experience as stress free as possible.

What are the top 3 treatments that you focus on?

As a general dentist I am versed in a wide range of treatments. Our clinic is known for our CEREC same day crowns and restorations, Invisalign (Clear Braces) and gentle and kind care for children.

What are you proud of in your practice?

I am the most proud of the staff that work at our practice. They are kind, knowledgeable and helpful. I am so thankful to have them to make my day easier and more fun.

Which cases do you enjoy treating? Why?

It is difficult to say what I enjoy treating the most because I really love helping people feel proud of their smiles. The best appointment I could hope for is one with a happy patient.

    I was worried going into the appointment as I have a phobia. From the receptionist to the hygienist, to the assistant to Dr. Amaro herself, everyone was very warm and welcoming and made me feel at ease. I would highly recommend visiting this office.

    Very thorough, patient, and understanding. The facility is modern, quite the opposite of what I'm used to. I was presented with a complete dental plan that was very thorough and appreciated. Found all staff are knowledgeable and helpful. Dr. Samantha Amaro was happy to answer all of my questions. They got in contact with my insurance company. I did not have to send any documentation. Overall I am very satisfied.

    Reviewed on April 19th, 2018  •  Verified patient
    Going to the dentist always make me nervous as I hate opening my mouth for more than an hour with some stranger poking my gums with pointy stuff and all. Although the hygienist was a little bit rough on my gums and quite a painful experience, that at first I regretted going to this clinic and thought of not coming back. However, Dr. Trotti removed all my worries away as she explained every detail of what's going on with my teeth and my son's teeth. The thing I like is that she has provided a treatment plan.
