Dr. Mike and his Dream Team deliver. As a perfectionist, Dr. Mike will not be satisfied with anything less than excellent. We are focused on shorter treatment times, on-time appointments, and a better overall experience. We also use Orthofi, a state of the art software program that lets you pick your down payment and monthly payment. Dr. Mike is the only Downriver office offering this service.
With over 26 years of experience Downriver, Dr. Mike is constantly learning, attending well over the minimum required Continuing Education coursed. Dr. Mike is on the forefront of all technologies related to Orthodontics. He is also busy teaching other orthodontists about Invisalign, testing new products, and writing books and articles.
I LOVE MY JOB! I still love what I do and I love working with patients and making them smile. I’m passionate about the field of orthodontics and couldn’t have picked a better profession.
I’m excited about the latest advances in orthodontics because they allow me to better serve you. I can offer you fewer visits and a shorter treatment time because of my focus on quality, technology, and customer service.
Since graduating from the University of Michigan in ’85 with my Dental degree and Indiana University in ’87 with my Orthodontic degree, I have been working, learning, and enjoying all things to do with braces and smiles.
My wife and I were married in 1982, and live with our two daughters, Jenna and Samantha. We are lifelong residents of Michigan, and currently live in Belleville.
I look forward to meeting you!
As a native Michigander and longtime Downriver resident, I feel truly blessed to have the opportunity to create beautiful, confident smiles in the community I call home. The most rewarding part of my job is forming lasting relationships with the patients and families that trust me to deliver world-class orthodontic treatment. I take great pride in honestly, compassionately, and meticulously doing just that.
I attended Central Michigan University as an undergraduate and studied at the University of Detroit Mercy School of Dentistry to receive my Doctorate. Just this year, I graduated Summa Cum Laude from Harvard Medical School, where I received my Master of Medical Science in Oral Biology.
My wife, Taylor (a dental hygienist), and I share a passion for all things smiles. To us, that means giving back to the community, spending time in the great outdoors, making music, and of course, TEETH. We even had a tooth-themed wedding cake!
Fun fact: When I was in college, I was the lead singer/songwriter in an alternative rock band!
Did you know that Dr. Mike flies his own plane and uses it to rescue dogs? He is part of Pilots and Paws, a rescue organization dedicated to saving the lives of our 4 legged friends. Dr. Mikes flies down to various airports and picks up dogs from kill shelters. These shelters are overflowing and can only hold dogs for so long. By transferring them to the adoption center New Hope Rescue in Lansing, these guys get a new leash on life. So far Dr. Mike and his wife and daughters have saved over 57 dogs’ lives!
