Lakeside Daytona Dentist is truly like a family. Dr. Silva and his team will help you every step of the way, from your initial phone call to the minute you walk into our warm and welcoming office. Our team of experts are advocates for the utmost quality of care for our patients. Tasha, alongside our outstanding team members, is passionate about delivering the best customer care for the local Daytona community. We look forward to getting to know you and your family. Please read below to learn more about each special team member.
Tasha has been a part of Lakeside Daytona Dentist for two years now, and she has 17 years of dental experience in total. Born and raised in sunny Florida, she attended Daytona State and has also undergone professional training with Breakaway, Heartland, and Levin, as well as insurance courses through dental conventions so that she can stay current on how to maximize patient benefits.
Tasha’s favorite part of her job is being able to watch people come in who have a fear of the dentist and then see them leave saying that they’re not only no longer fearful, but that they actually love coming in! Making people smile is extremely rewarding and it warms her heart to know that she’s made a difference in someone’s life. The team feels like family, and everyone treats the patients like they’re part of the family as well.
Tasha has been married to her husband Jeff for 12 years, and they have two daughters named Ashlee (7) and Brandi (17). They have also four of the cutest Yorkies you have ever seen; their names are Axel, Nitro, Finley, and Piper. When she isn’t busy at the office, she enjoys going to the beach, checking out classic cars, going on mini vacations, and hanging out with her dogs.
Something interesting about Tasha, she actually filmed an episode for SeaQuest DSV when she was in high school!
