Here at The Tooth Booth Family Dental Clinic, we have built a reputation as a leading family dental center in Fraser, Michigan, due to our commitment to providing patient centered care. Here are five benefits to using a family dental provider like us.

Finding a good dentist, can sometimes be difficult. By using a family dental provider, you don’t have to shop around for multiple dentists, saving you time, and frustration.
Family dentists often provide a much wider range of services than those who only see children, for example. By choosing a family dentist, you will have access to more services under one roof, reducing the need for special referrals and the potential for miscommunication among your dental care providers. The Tooth Booth Family Dental Clinic proudly provides:
- Preventive Care

Patient Centered Care
Pediatric dental care, such as what you would find at any family dental center, requires a level of care and compassion that is often lacking at adult only practices. Each member of your family will be treated with the same level of respect, care, and compassion, whether your child is coming in for their first check up, or twentieth.
Here at The Tooth Booth Family Dental Clinic, Dr Michael Booth strives to remain at the forefront of dental technologies, procedures, and advancements. Our goal is to provide our patients with cutting-edge treatment and exceptional services at affordable prices. From the latest in 3D imaging to expanded pain relief options, you are in good hands with our Team.

As America’s toughest trainer on the hit television program The Biggest Loser, Jillian Michaels helped people learn that they hold the power to change. And if anyone knows about the power of changing oneself, it is Jillian Michaels. In her recent interview with Dear Doctor magazine, Jillian discusses her childhood, the trauma of being overweight as a teenager (5′ 2″ and 175 pounds), and the day her life forever changed when she started martial arts training at a gym. “I started training when I was 17 and always loved it but never thought it would end up being my career,” she said.
Jillian also reveals that when she was a child, she broke her two front teeth and had them repaired with crowns. She added, “Now, I generally wear a mouthguard if I am doing anything where my teeth have any chance of being knocked out.”
When it comes to replacing teeth that are broken or damaged from trauma, or teeth that are damaged because of dental decay, grinding habits, or acid erosion, crowns may be your best option. And because the tooth enamel is damaged, a bit more of it must be removed before we can place a crown. Generally speaking, we must remove about 2 millimeters of tooth structure to place a crown. Once the crown is placed, the tooth will always require a crown, as this is an irreversible procedure. However, the good news is that a crown not only mimics the look and feel of a natural tooth, but it is also the optimal long-term solution. On average, a crown last between 5 and 15 years and requires no special maintenance. In fact, you should treat your crown as you do your natural teeth, with a daily cleaning regimen of brushing and flossing and routine dental examinations and cleanings.

Maria Menounos, an independent filmmaker, actress, and co-host of daily entertainment news program Extra, learned at an early age about the importance of maintaining good general and dental health when her father, Constantinos, a Greek immigrant, was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes. As a result, her parents made sure the family consumed a diet filled with fresh fruits and vegetables, many of which they produced themselves. Maria and her family also consumed little-to-no junk food.
Menounos is still committed to helping those with diabetes. In fact, because she saw first hand the power of communication in the lives of diabetes patients and their families, Menounos is an avid ambassador for the American Diabetes Association.
Maria’s experience with diabetes is one that she shares with millions of people worldwide. And if you or someone you care about is suffering from this disease, it’s important to be aware of the connection between diabetes and oral health. Recent research has shown a link between two chronic inflammatory conditions: periodontal (gum) disease and diabetes. Evidence consistently reveals that diabetes is a risk factor for increased severity of periodontal disease and conversely, periodontitis is a risk factor for worsening blood glucose control in patients with diabetes and may also increase the risk of diabetic complications. Periodontal inflammation is also associated with an elevated systemic (general body) inflammatory state and an increased risk of major cardiovascular (“cardio” – heart; “vascular” – blood vessel) events such as heart attack, stroke, adverse pregnancy outcomes (e.g., low birth weight and preterm births) and altered blood sugar control in people with diabetes.
If you are interested in learning more about periodontal disease, if you are diabetic and fear you may have periodontal disease, you can contact us today so that we can conduct a thorough examination. During this private consultation, we will also discuss any questions you have as well as what treatment options will be best for you.
