Dr. Brett Cerqua

I grew up in Scarborough, Ontario and spent over 30 years in the big city of Toronto. During high school I enjoyed playing hockey and rugby and I worked as a sports and seasonal associate at the local Canadian Tire. I graduated from the University of Toronto with a degree in Neuroscience and went on to complete my Doctor of Dental Surgery degree four years later. I was voted President of the Dental Student’s Society during my final year of dental school. Following dental school, I was accepted into a general practice residency at Sunnybrook Health Sciences Center where I completed additional training in oral surgery and I received my certification in IV sedation dentistry. I am a long-standing member of the Ontario Dental Association and Academy of General Dentistry. I am a strong believer in lifelong learning and I strive to better myself with regular continuing education. Recent areas of interest include a mini residency in implant dentistry, advances in root canal therapy, and pediatric dental care. I aim to provide an environment for my patients where questions are encouraged and patients leave well informed and satisfied with the treatment I provide. I felt I needed to branch out and explore Ontario as I had spent so much of my life in the same place. I have held associateships in Toronto, Brockville, Madoc, Belleville, and Trenton Ontario. I have been a resident of Belleville since 2009 and wanted to find a practice that was close to home so I could be more involved with my growing family. Dr. Smith and I have enjoyed a good working and personal relationship since my arrival in 2009. He is a highly respected practitioner and a person that I have tried to emulate since my arrival to the Quinte Region. My personal interests include working out, playing hockey, watching movies, travelling, and playing guitar. I also enjoy cooking and giving back to the community. I support local youth hockey and soccer, Big Brothers and Sisters of Hastings and Prince Edward County, The Salvation Army, the YMCA, and the Frankford Youth Center. In September of 2011, I married a small town girl from Perth Ontario. On November 24, 2013, my wife Melinda and I celebrated the birth of our daughter Charlotte and we just recently welcomed our little boy Oliver in June 2015. I hope to meet you all very soon. Just let me know if I can help you in any way.
