Dr Tiana Melo Howard is a general dentist who completed a Bachelor of Dental Science degree, with honours, from the University of Western Australia in 2012. She has also previously completed a Bachelor of Science and a Diploma in Italian (ciao!).
Tiana is an active member in the dental community, not only as a member of the Australian Dental Association (ADA) but has also served on the committee of ADA Victorian Branch “Southern Group” as both Secretary and Treasurer from 2014-2020.
Tiana loves being a general family dentist; she aims to address your immediate dental concerns but also provide comprehensive care and oral education with a goal towards long term stability. Tiana’s favourite patients are the little ones and she believes a trip to the dentist can be a fun experience. Often complemented on her manner, gentle nature and good humour, Tiana helps to put her patients concerns at ease. She’s even had patients laughing during an extraction and snoring during a root canal!
Tiana grew up in Brazil and Perth (she misses the sunshine and beaches terribly!) but moved to Victoria after completing her studies. She has settled in Geelong, having met her partner and recently welcoming a baby daughter into their family. When she’s not playing with teeth, Tiana loves going for road trips, camping, playing in the snow and baking.
