There’s a new dentist in town. Dr. Sandra Shrimankar, University of Michigan graduate and mother of two, is now providing oral health to local families. “I want to treat patients like I want my children to be treated,” says Dr. Shrimankar.
Excel Dental,which opened in April, has programs aimed at getting kids and families excited about going to the dentist. The No Cavity Club rewards kids who have- you guessed it- no cavities. Members of the No Cavity Club get their picture on the wall and are rewarded with a special prize for taking care of their teeth. Also popular is the office’s Mouth Guard Clinic, run primarily in the fall, a day when kids ages 8-18 can receive a free fitted mouth guard for protection during contact sports.
“We’re very community-oriented and we want everybody to have the opportunity for oral health, which is, of course, a gateway to overall health,” explains Dental Assistant Angel Tarbet.
The office isn’t only for kids. “We want to be more of a family dentistry where everybody comes, mom, dad, kids,” maintains Dr. Shrimankar.
As Tarbet says, “No one has your teeth; you’re uniquely you.” Excel Dental has one ultimate goal, “making people smile.” -MW
