Meet Dr. Rina

Dr. Rina M. Kotecha, DMD

Dentist in Mississauga - Dr. Rina M. Kotecha, DMD
I enjoy what I do because dentistry provides me the opportunity to help our patients live healthy, happy lives with beautiful smiles! I take pride in my work and look forward to building lifelong relationships with the families I come across. I am grateful for the trust my patients have in me, and I look forward to welcoming you to our family of patients.



Education and Continuing Education

In order to become a dentist, I built a strong foundation through my education. I attended the Harvard School of Dental Medicine. This is where I obtained my DMD. Then I completed my General Practice Residency at Brigham and Women’s Hospital, which is a Harvard Affiliated Hospital.

I continue to learn about the latest dental methods and treatments in order to always ensure my patients receive quality care. As part of my continuing education, I am a Preferred Provider of Invisalign, and an active member of the Ontario Dental Association and the South Asian Dental Association.

I choose to participate in continuing education because I love improving my skills and expanding my knowledge of the latest technologies. I want to have focused experience in many different areas so that I am able to provide my patients with customized treatment plans that fit their needs.

Professional Dedication

Dentist in Mississauga - Dr. Rina M. Kotecha, DMD
I have been in practice since 2001, and I am more passionate about my work than ever. The best part of my job is getting to know my patients. I always remember the stories they tell about their families and their lives because I care about them. My patients are like my extended family, just like my team members!

In addition to providing dental care, I always take the time to make sure all my patients know how to properly take care of their teeth and gums at home. The more a person knows about proper home care, the fewer expensive, complex treatments they need. Take care of your teeth and they will take care of you!

Family Life

I was born in Dar-es-salaam, Tanzania, in East Africa. I lived and studied in Boston for eight years, and have lived in Mississauga since 2003. I am happily married to my husband, Mitesh, an IT consultant, and we have a beautiful daughter, Malika. We also have a newer edition to the family, our son Armaan, who is almost one year old. I love listening to music, watching movies, reading inspirational literature, practicing yoga, gardening, shopping and playing the occasional game of friendly poker!

I am also fluent in English, Gujarati, Hindi, Swahili - we love to create a sense of belonging and welcome patients of all cultures.

Community Involvement

For the past 10 years, Dr. Rina Kotecha has been extensively involved in the Mississauga community. During her frequent trips to Africa, she also is very active in helping others receive and maintain oral healthcare. Helping someone to share their smile is one of the most rewarding parts of being a dentist.
