When Anaida Deti immigrated to Canada from Albania 14 years ago with her husband, she had only $500 in her pocket and a dream of opening her own business. Seven years, seven-day workweeks and a diploma later, she opened the doors to her very own dental hygiene practice, becoming CEO of Dental-X Smile Centers now DentalX. A registered Dental Hygenist, Anaida has made it her mission to educate patients on the importance of dental health.
Anaida is a member of the Canadian, Ontario and Toronto Dental Hygienists Association, and was elected as the ODHA Ambassador for Toronto North. She founded Mission Kind (Kids In Need of Dentalcare), to help children aged 6-16 obtain much needed dental work at no charge. In 2015, she became a finalist for the MOMpreneur Award for Excellence. Anaida is a coveted speaker at dental conventions and seminars. Her passion and dental expertise has garnered her media coverage in the Toronto Star, Elevate Magazine, and Focus Magazine. She has been a featured guest expert on Global Morning, BT, CTV News Channel, CP24, CTV News and Yahoo. She had a monthly dental column in Metroland Media called Deti Does Dental, and is a regular contributor to Huffington Post. You can connect with her @anaidadeti www.DentalX.ca

“People look for retreats for themselves, in the country, by the coast, or in the hills . . . There is nowhere that a person can find a more peaceful and trouble-free retreat than in his own mind. . . . So constantly give yourself this retreat, and renew yourself.”
