The training, skill & experience trusted by thousands.

A well-trained and experienced dentist, Dr. Michael Watson is known for his skill, attention to detail and commitment to excellent results. After graduating dental school with honors, Dr. Watson completed a special internship in which he learned techniques and honed skills not typically part of a dentist’s training. Today, Dr. Watson has nearly a decade of experience and has earned the trust of thousands with healthy, happy smiles.

“I decided to become a dentist because I wanted to help people. After nearly a decade of practicing dentistry, this is still what motivates me. Being able to improve the lives of others is very rewarding as well as urging me strive to offer the best care possible. I never forget the importance of oral health to your overall health. This is a major part of my focus as a dentist because it’s also a huge part of my personal life. As a person with diabetes, I am very deeply aware of the role of good healthcare. I’ve dedicated myself to taking the extra steps and precautions people like me need. Yet, it’s just part of my belief that everyone deserves a dentist who takes the time and makes the personal commitments that lead to healthy, attractive smiles.”

Dr. Watson is always interested in learning and expanding his education.  He has taken recent Continuing Education classes in veneers, cosmetic dentistry, implantology, temporomandibular dysfunction, oral pathology, and oral-systemic health issues.
