Offering services in dental implants, treatment of periodontal disease, cosmetic oral surgery and oral surgery, Dr. John Hall has been a periodontist in Traverse City since 1998. He is a native of Northern Michigan. After graduating from Central Michigan University in 1991 with a bachelor’s degree in Biology, he attended the University of Michigan School of Dentistry, completing a dental degree in 1995. Dr. Hall then began a three-year residency in periodontics at U of M.
At the end of his residency, Dr. Hall was awarded the Sigurd Ramfjord Award, named for a University of Michigan professor and School of Dentistry chair who was known internationally for his leadership in establishing the specialty of periodontics (dental treatment of gum disease). “I’m very proud to be a graduate of the periodontal program at the U of M,” says Dr. Hall. “The program has an excellent reputation in the profession for its strength both in clinical studies and in research.”
“I feel honored to be asked back to give occasional lectures to current periodontal program students at the U of M and to students in NMC’s assisting program,” he adds. “I really enjoy working with students who are studying periodontal dentistry or periodontal dental assisting.”
In 2005 Dr. Hall was awarded Diplomate status from the American Board of Periodontology. Only a small number of periodontists in private practice distinguish themselves by going through the process of board certification, which requires comprehensive qualifying and oral examinations and recertification every six years.
Dr. Hall is an active member of the Resort District Dental Society, The American Dental Association, the Michigan Periodontal Association, and the American Academy of Periodontology. He serves on the Board of Directors of the Michigan Dental Association. He is also active in the Traverse City Rotary Club. He resides in Traverse City and has five grown children. Dr. Hall enjoys fishing, hunting, fitness activities, and family fun.
