We’re thrilled to send off Dr. Stephanie D’Souza on her maternity leave, we can’t wait to meet her new baby boy!
You’ll be in excellent hands whilst Steph is away, as Dr. Archana Prasad is covering.

I qualified as a dentist with distinction from India in 1993 and obtained Fellowship (FDSRCS) from the Royal College of Surgeons of London in Oral Surgery & Oral Medicine in 2001.
In 2010 I entered the GDC specialist list in Special Care Dentistry.
I have broad experience of working in NHS teaching hospitals, universities, community settings and mixed general dental practices. I have been working in Manchester, Preston & the northwest for over 18 years.
As a SCD Consultant in hospital, I have delivered a full range of dental treatments for patients with additional needs under local, general anesthesia & conscious sedation. I was an educational supervisor for the registrar and responsible for training and development of the team.
As a Lecturer for Manchester, UCLAN & Liverpool Dental School, I have been involved in direct clinical supervision & teaching of 4th & final year dental undergraduates in the specialist area of Paediatric and Special Care Dentistry. I have been both an external and an internal examiner as well as one of the panel members for the admission committee of Manchester Dental School.
As a Senior Dental Officer & Lead clinician for community dental practices, my responsibility was to provide clinical supervision, a mentor for peers and the dental team. I provided Clinical Lead & Governance for Anxiety and conscious sedation for Manchester Community Dental services.
As a general dental practitioner, I enjoy cosmetic dentistry and smile makeovers. I am an active member of the British Association of Cosmetic Dentistry and I am currently undertaking a course in advanced Cosmetic and Aesthetic Restorative Dentistry.
I have been involved in continuing education courses for dentists and dental support staff, working with northwest deanery. I have lectured all over the Northwest and Far East in the field of dentistry. The above provides me with a rounded prospective of working in primary, secondary & tertiary dental care in clinical, educational and management aspects of dentistry.
I am excited and looking forward to work with team at First Dental Care.
