Dr. Rosie Lacivita

imgoneDr. Lacivita, known to most of her patients as “Dr. Rosie,” knew she wanted to become a dentist ever since she was old enough to work alongside her father as his dental assistant. Being the daughter of a dentist, she showed interest in the dental field at a very young age. On the right track, Dr. Rosie graduated from York University with a specialized Honours degree in Human Biology. She continued her studies at the University of Western Ontario where she received her Doctor of Dental Surgery degree in 2010.
Dr. Rosie is currently an active member of the Ontario Dental Association, Canadian Dental Association, the Academy of General Dentistry and the York Region Dental Society. She is committed to lifelong learning and takes continuing education courses to keep current with new techniques and treatments. In addition, she continues to learn and educate herself through communication with other colleagues about current dental topics. Dr. Rosie is currently certified in the administration of nitrous oxide and oral sedation. She is also a certified Invisalign provider.
Dr. Rosie’s primary focus is prevention but she enjoys all aspects of dentistry. She has a special interest in pediatric dentistry and has been known to have a special touch when working with children. Dr. Rosie believes that participation in the dental community is key to maintaining a good dental practice. She continues to participate in community events to help increase oral health awareness. While pursuing her studies in London, she volunteered at the Western University Children’s Dental clinic and in dental outreach programs providing care to the underprivileged. She also spent one month doing an oral surgery residency program at the Goldman School of Dentistry in Boston.
Dr. Rosie believes that the key to a strong dentist-patient relationship lies in communication, kindness, and trust. She is looking forward to meeting her new patients in the East Gwillimbury area, and forming long-lasting relationships with each and every one of them.
Dr. Rosie grew up in Maple, Ontario and currently lives in Newmarket with her family. Dr. Rosie and her husband Derick welcomed the arrival of their first child on December 26, 2017: a little boy named Nico.  In her spare time, Dr. Rosie enjoys being a mom, baking, dancing, and spending time with her big, loud Italian family.
