Meet Dr. Thomas
Hi! My name is Dr. Michael Thomas and I LOVE being an orthodontist!
I grew up right here in Saginaw, MI and graduated from Heritage High School. Growing up I always knew I wanted to be in health care and during my time at the University of Michigan for college, I discovered dentistry to be my true calling.
I was fortunate to be accepted into U of M’s dental school and got my dental degree 4 years later.
Then, I went on to get my orthodontic training at the University of Detroit Mercy Dental School and came back home to Saginaw in 2012 to set up this office up from scratch.
I was told many times that starting an orthodontic office from scratch couldn’t be done, but I felt so strongly about returning to my hometown to serve the community that I called home growing up.
I created this office on the premise that all people need to feel special when they visit their orthodontist and not simply a number.
I feel our office fills that need in Saginaw, but we realize constant improvement and hard work is the only way we will continue to exceed the expectations of our patient families.
I feel truly blessed that the people of Saginaw have supported our office since our beginning. We never take any patient family for granted and never will.
I met the love of my life Sarah when I was finishing dental school and 2 short years later, we were married and living back in Saginaw.
With a startup office, we were fortunate Sarah was able to join Covenant Hospital as an operating room nurse as I worked growing the office.
Over the years, Sarah and I were blessed to have three children join our family named Claire, Ben and Eleanor.
When I’m at the office treating patients, I see their faces in our patients and treat every patient of ours like I’d treat my own children.
Outside of the office, I love being a full time dad and spending as much time with my children as possible. One of my passions since I was in high school has been playing electric guitar. I still try to find time to get the guitar out and play (on low volume of course).
