What our patients say


Maude’s Story

“I can’t really see where I had surgery. It doesn’t look any different than the tooth right next to it.”

“I’m not a big fan of dentists at all, but Dr. Hall did a great job”

Periodontists provide all kinds of dental treatment, whether a patient has gum disease or needs oral surgery, cosmetic dentistry or dental implants. Sometimes a problem that doesn’t even cause the patient any pain can require oral surgery. Here’s Maude’s story about how Dr. Hall repaired her gum tissue to like new.


“What happened was that my gum split down to the root of my tooth,” says Maude. “It wasn’t painful but it was definitely something that needed to be taken care of.”

Maude was referred to Dr. Hall’s office for a soft tissue graft to repair the damage to her gums. “Using donor tissue, Dr. Hall did a graft on my gum to fill up the area that had split,” she explains. “Dr. Hall did a really good job of explaining my options to me. I had to make a choice between two different options. He explained both of them very clearly – full disclosure – and I was able to choose what I thought was best for me and go with it.”

“Not only is everyone very nice, but the office is very prompt. I never had to wait more than a couple of minutes.”

The results? “It went very well. Everything turned out great. I can’t really see where I had surgery. It doesn’t look any different than the tooth right next to it. Everything is back where it should be.”

And Maude appreciates the staff at Dr. Hall’s office. “Everyone was helpful and kind. Not only is everyone very nice, but the office is very prompt. I never had to wait more than a couple of minutes.

“I’m very happy with the results.”

We are seeing patients while taking many precautions to ensure that care is delivered in a sanitary, safe environment.

Infection Control and Concerns Regarding the Corona Virus Crisis


As of Monday, June 1, the "Stay Home, Stay Safe" order has been lifted for the State of Michigan.


Our staff is working tirelessly to cancel/reschedule pending appointments.
Please call with any questions/concerns, or to schedule an emergency appointment.
Please stay healthy, observe social distancing. Thanks for your understanding.

Infection control procedures are actions taken in health care settings to prevent the spread of disease. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has recommendations for dental office infection control. Your dentist cares about your safety and works hard to prevent the spread of infection. Before you enter the examining room, all surfaces, such as the dental chair, dental light, drawer handles and countertops, have been cleaned and disinfected. Offices may cover some equipment with protective covers, which are replaced after each patient.

Non-disposable items like the dental tools are cleaned and sterilized between patients. Disposable dental tools and needles are never reused. Infection control precautions also require all dental staff involved in patient care to use appropriate protective equipment such as gloves, masks, gowns and eyewear when needed. After each patient, disposable gloves and masks are thrown away. Before seeing the next patient, everyone on the treatment team washes their hands and put on a new pair of gloves.

Your well-being is important to your dentist and dental staff. That’s why infection control procedures are in place at your dental office. What about the new coronavirus?

It is very understandable to be concerned about the new coronavirus that causes COVID-19. Please know that the precautions your dentist already takes every day to prevent the spread of infection in his or her practice also helps prevent the spread of COVID-19.

If you are ill with flu-like symptoms, you should reschedule your appointment.

If you or someone you are in close contact with have recently traveled to one of the countries with large outbreaks of COVID-19 (China, Italy, Iran, South Korea) or if you have been exposed to someone else who was diagnosed with COVID-19 or who was quarantined as a precaution, wait 14 days until you see your dentist to make sure you have not caught the coronavirus.

If you are healthy, there’s no need to cancel your regularly scheduled dental appointment.

It’s important to know that the majority of people infected with the coronavirus experience flu-like symptoms and then recover. Most people do not develop serious respiratory complications.

Those most at risk of becoming seriously ill are elderly people and those with underlying medical conditions such as diabetes and kidney disease, among others. Children, thus far, have been largely unaffected.

Here are a few things you can do on your own to help keep yourself and those around you healthy:

  • Wash your hands frequently, or use a hand sanitizer with at least 60 percent ethyl alcohol.
  • Avoid touching your face, eyes or nose to reduce the spread of germs.
  • Cover your cough or sneeze with your elbow. Infections like the coronavirus spread through the tiny droplets in coughs and sneezes.
  • Stay home if you feel sick. If you have flu-like symptoms or otherwise feel unwell, stay home and rest. Call your dentist to reschedule your appointment for a later date. This will reduce the risk of spreading your illness.
