Meet Dr. Michael Dahm

“After practicing for more than 30 years, I love the fact that I still love going to work in the morning. I truly feel spoiled as a dentist that I have such loyal team members and that we have our own dental lab on site. I am so proud to have staff members that have been with us for ten, 15, even 25 years. It is truly our caring and friendly staff that makes Van Buren what we are. We at Van Buren Dental treat patients the way we would want to be treated. We make sure to listen to our patients so that we can come up with a treatment plan that they feel comfortable with.” — Dr. Michael Dahm

He believes in painless dentistry, and truly listening to his patients in order to come up with their best treatment plan.
