Dr. Michael Carpenter, DDS

Dentist, Cosmetic Dentist, Dental Pain Specialist

Professional statement

I was born in Detroit and raised on the city’s west side. I have lived my entire life in metropolitan Detroit. I graduated from Catholic Central High school in 1975. I received my Bachelors of Science degree from the University of Notre Dame in 1979 and my Doctorate in Dental Surgery from the University of Michigan in 1983. I am a member of the American Dental Association, the Michigan Dental Association, and the Detroit District Dental Society. I have been practicing in Plymouth since 1983 and opened my current office in January 1986. High quality dental care is a basic premise for my practice, but I enjoy working in a small family-oriented practice. I enjoy knowing my patients and have been honored to serve several generations of many of my families.

Dr. Carpenter was awesome! I had the same dentist for over 20 years before moving to Michigan, and I was nervous about finding a new one. Within 5 minutes, I was so happy I chose Dr. Carpenter. Both he and hiswife are wonderful people full of good stories and professionalism.

This was by far the best dentist's visit I've ever had. So glad I found them! The dentist and staff are super friendly and I love how sterile and clean they are. I'm a germaphobe and I love how the equipmentand everything is wrapped, sterile and protected, they wear masks and the dentist and assistants are always asking "how your doing" during procedure. They're super caring and gentle. So good with kids too! This dentist is great for all ages. The office staff is always smiling and I love that because I get nervous when I can sense healthcare professionals dont like their jobs but you can tell this office is very happy! I would rate 100 stars if I could!! Thank you ZocDoc!!

I went here for the first time. I was seen right away. The staff was nice and professional. I am glad to finally have a dentist that I won't avoid going to.

Dr Carpenter gave me the most thorough oral exam I've ever had. I especially like that he is "looking at the big picture" to come up with a treatment plan rather than addressing just one thing at a time. Dr Carpenterwas professional, friendly and helped me feel at ease (I am an extremely nervous dental patient.) The office staff and dental technicians are professional and friendly and it's apparent that they like one another too. I think I've found my new home for dental care.

Very pleasing. Often meeting a new doctor/dentist can be very stressful. Dr. Michael was very pleasant, easy to talk to.

Dr. Carpenter and his staff was very professional. He did a thorough exam of my entire mouth which was very impressive. In all my years seeing a dentist that was the first time a dentist did a thorough exam of my mouth.
