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.

Dr. Zubaida Malik
I was born and raised in Islamabad, Pakistan. I received my Bachelor of Dental Surgery degree (B.D.S.) from one of the most prestigious universities in Pakistan. Soon after graduating, I decided to move to Canada. After moving to Canada I upgraded my dental education by successfully completing an advanced dental placement program at The University of Western Ontario and received my DDS degree there in June,2018.
I strongly believe that learning is a life long process so I have enrolled in many continuing education courses and plan on continue updating my knowledge on regular basis.
Following my graduation in Canada, I moved to northern Ontario and worked there as an associate dentist. I have recently moved to Belleville with my family and am excited to be a part of Dr. Brett's amazing team.
I believe in giving back to the community and plan on helping the less fortunate. I am a mother of a 6 year old boy and I enjoy cooking, and spending time with family and friends.
Please book your appointment today, I would love to meet you and your family.
I have worked as a Dental Hygienist since 1988. I enjoy helping people achieve better oral health. Currently two of my three children are away at university and I spend my spare time helping on our ‘hobby’ farm. My hobbies include reading, quilting, painting and taking piano lessons.
I was born and raised in Belleville. Started out my career as a Dental Assistant in 2004, then graduated from Dental Hygiene in 2007. I enjoy spending time with friends and family and dog Harley.
I was born in Belleville, and raised in Marmora, Ontario. I am the newest dental assistant to join the East Hill team, and this is my first career opportunity since graduating from college in April 2019. I graduated from high school in 2018, and chose to continue my educational journey into something which I loved. Ever since I was a young child, I always wanted to help people so I chose to pursue a career in dental assisting. I stayed close to home to complete my dental assisting training and graduated as a CDA ll from Durham College. In my spare time I enjoy giving back to my community, spending time with friends and family, being outdoors and being optimistic!
I moved to Belleville the year I graduated from my level II assisting program in 2008. I enjoy cooking and spending time outdoors with my family. I spend many hours at the arena watching my kids play hockey.
I graduated from Maxwell College in 2008 with honours. I’ve been working with Dr. Smith at Bridge Street Dental Center since August 2012 and have enjoyed every minute! I am a proud mother of three and enjoy being outdoors.
I’ve been a dental assistant for over 20 years. When I’m not working in our sterile bay, you’ll find me gardening, camping , and four wheeling with my family.
It has been a very enjoyable journey, as I have worked in the dental field for 30 years. My career has now taken me from Dental Assistant of 20 years to Hygiene Coordinator with the dental team I have been working with for the past 10 years. During this time I have raised 2 great sons and now enjoy the company of my beautiful granddaughter.
