MEET THE STAFF

Dentists


Dr. Lara Souliere

Being the daughter of a nurse, it's no surprise that I chose a career in health care.  I love working in dentistry and truly enjoy the relationships that caring for my patients allows me.  I have found the challenges of customizing dental treatment based on knowing my patients' individual needs and desires extremely rewarding.  I also enjoy the artistic outlet that dentistry allows me.

Originally from Amherstburg, Ontario, I graduated from the dental school at the University of Western Ontario in 1994.  I have been fortunate to have been able to serve the community of LaSalle for 22 years as an associate dentist and now as a practice owner.  Part of what keeps dentistry exciting for me is continually updating my knowledge and skills through ongoing participation in study clubs, lectures, workshops and online learning.

  I currently reside in South Windsor with my husband Len, my two daughters Kristen and Erin and our bunnies Rocky and PomPom.  I am an avid runner and enjoy working in my garden, reading and spending time with family and friends.

Dr. Michael Jacobs

I am proud to say that I was born and raised in Leamington. I began my studies at the University of Windsor, where I earned three degrees in Mathematics, Education, and Masters of Science. I then completed my Doctor of Dental Surgery through the University of Detroit Mercy.

I was fortunate enough to achieve multiple awards upon graduating from dental school - The American Association of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeons presented me with the top dental surgical award while The Academy of Operative Dentistry presented me with the top operative dentistry (dental fillings) award. I have since gained Fellowship status from the International Congress of Oral Implantologists. It is my hope to use my passion for dentistry to provide excellent patient care.

I have always been fully committed to Windsor/Essex. This is where I live with my amazing wife, Ghada and our wildly independent 5-year old, Princess Cadence. My commitment to our local community is best exemplified with the founding of a registered charity, the Love, Betty Cancer Foundation.

Helping to calm a patient’s fear and make them feel comfortable is very gratifying. I also enjoy taking part in changing someone’s smile or overall dental health.

In my free time, I enjoy the simple things in life such as spending time with my husband and grown family, along with gardening, reading, campfires and sipping a wee bit of the fruit of the vine with friends.
