Eleonora was born and raised in Albania, Europe, before moving to the United States as an exchange student at age 16 where she graduated with honours and received a certificate for Outstanding Academic Achievement.
She moved to Toronto at age 18 and attended the University of Toronto from 2000 to 2004, graduating with a double major degree in Human Biology and Italian. Right after graduation, she was accepted in the Denturism Program at George Brown College. Eleonora was very proud to be part of the GBC team and to be part of The Dean's Honour Roll list from 2004 to 2006. She graduated from GBC in 2007 and has practised denturism ever since. In 2009, she purchased a clinic in midtown Toronto. Eleonora is also on the Board of Directors for the Denturist Association of Ontario. In her free time Eleonora loves to read, shop and spend time with family and friends.
Compassionate, efficient and a speedy multitasker, Stella is a welcome addition to the Confident Smiles team! Stella joined Confident Smiles in December 2009 as our receptionist and has quickly made herself an important component of the office dynamic by ensuring that all patient clinical appointments and associated lab work are organized and on track each and every day. Stella is the voice on the phone and the first person to greet our patients when they walk through the door; she has many responsibilities at Confident Smiles, but for the most part, she is responsible for steering this ship in the right direction! Stella brings a diverse administrative background to Confident Smiles and graduated from the Toronto School of Business in 2001 earning her Legal Administrative Assistant Diploma.
Stella loves spending time with her husband and stepdaughter; going to the movies, hiking, camping and enjoying the outdoors are just a few of the many activities they share as a family.
Despite coming from a large Italian family, the art of cooking is not Stella’s forte. In fact, she prefers to eat rather than cook, although it doesn’t show because exercise is a great passion of Stella’s and aside from being faithful to her gym workouts, she recently ran her first 10-km race this past summer and is planning to take part in a half marathon next summer; completing a full marathon is a future goal she intends to work towards.
Travel is Stella’s other great passion; she regularly visits the Caribbean and is looking forward to planning a European adventure very soon!
