Dr. Taha Jomha BMed Sci, DDS
I love being a dentist! It all started back in 2001 when I started my University Career. I was fortunate to have worked a summer job as a dental assistant and I fell in love with every aspect of the career. Dentistry offers everything I want in a career; I get to help people, play with cool gadgets and run my own business! I completed 2 years of undergrad and then was accepted into the faculty of dentistry. I graduated as a general dentist in 2007.
My favorite thing about working is building relationships with people. I see so many different people from all walks of life and I feel that people have awesome stories. I will probably forget your name but I always remember a random fact you told me the last time you were in and of course I can always identify you by your teeth! I have been providing dental care for over 10 years and my most satisfying day is when I can help a patient in pain or when I have an anxious kid who leaves super happy. A day where all my check up and cleaning patients are cavity free is awesome too.
I also moonlight as a computer programmer; if you have ever sent my office a text message or booked an appointment online…then you are using my hand written software! My love for technology is spilling over into my dental practice. I am excited to be offering 3D x-rays, intra oral photos, and just recently same day crowns and digital impressions. Dentistry is changing rapidly and I am doing my best to stay up to date. I have travelled all over Canada and the US to train under some of the best doctors.
When I am not working I am probably hanging out with my wife and 4 kids. They keep me very busy. When I do have spare time, I am probably at my CrossFit gym or running.
If you ever need to ask me something please feel free to email me. firstname.lastname@example.org

Hi, I’m Amy the Registered Dental Hygienist here at Summerlea Dental and I love my job! I completed my schooling in 2009 at Texas State Technical College. After working as a hygienist for 2 ½ years, I participated in a mission trip for a year and a half in the states. When I returned in 2014 I started working at Summerlea Dental and have been here ever since!
One thing I appreciate about the field I work in, is the continual opportunity for growth and further education. The most fulfilling part of my job is when I see the transformation in my patient’s oral health in between their visits. I also love the fact that I get to talk with someone different every hour and get to know them on a personal level. Over the years of working here I’ve come to consider my patients as friends.
In my spare time I enjoy playing with my nieces and nephews, and spending time outdoors with my fiancé. I love kayaking, stand up paddleboarding and gardening in the summer and cross country skiing and skating in the winter. I also have a passion for travel and love hearing suggestions of where I should explore next!
