Upon returning to Ontario, Dr. D'Souza spent 2 years as an associate in Dr. Jim Harris/Dr. Steven Bongard's dental practice in Trenton. He then purchased a general dental practice in Cambridge where he continued to grow his passion for all aspects of dentistry.

Dr. D’Souza is married, and has two beautiful daughters with his wife, Sylvia. In order to be closer to friends and family, he and his wife recently decided to relocate to Durham region. Dr. D’Souza is a true family man; he thoroughly enjoys spending time with his wife and their young daughters, as well as with family and friends.

Dental Administrator

Lynne is our Dental Administrator. She is often the one calling you to remind you of your appointments or responding to your text messages. Lynne's love of organization and passion for working with people, enables her to help our office run smoothly every day.

Lynne works hard to ensure our patients feel welcome and comfortable from the minute they walk in the door. She always strives to make every visit to our office easy and enjoyable. When Lynne is not working, she enjoys spending time with her husband Rob, their two girls Ella and Kiera, and her sister (our very own Hygienist) Tricia.

Dental Hygienist

Tricia has been practicing as a dental hygienist for 10 years.  Prior to dental hygiene, Tricia was a dental assistant for approximately 6 years. She believes she gained a true understanding of the dental field during that time, which then sparked her interest to further her career. She is very passionate about helping others maintain their oral health.  One of her greatest joys is to see someone who comes in fearful, leave at ease and with a smile.
When Tricia is not focusing on maintaining your oral health, you will find her spending time with her nieces, walking her dog Lilly, keeping fit at the gym or dipping a paintbrush in paint, with hopes of creating a masterpiece.
