Dr. Michael D. Petersen
Michael D Petersen, DDS – I was raised in a small farming communtity just outside of Salt Lake City, Utah. I attended Dental School at the University of Nebraska, Lincoln. After graduation I completed a General Practice Program in General Dentistry with the United States Air Force. I’ve been in private practice in Parker for over 20 years.
I believe in a philosophy of preserving tooth structure through preventative dentistry. Many of the kids we have treated over the years now enjoy filling free teeth because of sealants, fluoride treatments and regular cleanings and x-rays. Nothing man can make is as good as tooth structure you are born with. My goal is to maintain your healthy beautiful smile for many years.
We have a great bleaching system that works great to whiten any discolor teeth you might have. Cosmetic dentistry has been a passion of mine for many years. Whether you need veneers, crowns or fillings, chances are we have what you are looking for.
An exciting addition to our practice 4 years ago was the CAD/CAM Cerec Crown Machine. We can now digitize your teeth and fabricate a long lasting beautiful porcelain crown that fits better than most laboratory created crowns. From the time you walk-in until its done is 2 hours. At the end of 2 hours you have a crown permanently cemented in place ready to chew on. No impressions, no temporary crown for 2 weeks. Your chewing on it that night. Its an amazing device. Each time I use it, I’m still amazed, and so will you.
I love to Practice Dentistry, but I also enjoy working with my cattle ranch and horses. I’ve been married since 1980. My wife and I have 5 kids and 5 grandkids.
