Every year, our Shelby Township dental office awards two scholarships to high school seniors interested in a health-related career.
I’m so pleased to introduce you to our 2022 Ban R. Barbat, DDS-PC Scholarship recipients. Congratulations to…
While maintaining a 4.13 GPA, Eisenhower High graduate ISABELLA YESKE was active in extracurricular activities, many where her Spanish speaking skills were particularly useful. She was also helpful to other students who wished to expand their speaking and writing skills in the Spanish language.
Isabella, who has aspirations to become a psychologist, began her pursuit as she became more aware of how mental health affects the quality of life for individuals as well as entire families. Isabella will be entering Michigan State University this Fall.
MARY COTTONE is a Utica High School graduate who will begin studies this Fall at Michigan State University with the ultimate goal of becoming a pediatrician. At Utica High, she excelled in Math and science courses while also being an active member of the band.
Mary has also been honored to be accepted in the Michigan State University Lyman Briggs program, which admits only 600 students each year. This program allows students to receive a more personal education.
For over 25 years, our dental office has been a strong supporter of the Macomb County community in addition to this helpful scholarship. We are especially proud to be sponsors of several events hosted by the Shelby Township Parks & Recreation Department. The 2022 events include:
• Ford Field baseball field sponsor
• Easter Bunny Lunch at the activities center
• July outdoor concert sponsorship
• Annual Art Fair at River Bends Park
This year, you may also notice banners that support our Township along several main streets. These show our pride and community spirit while adding color to the Heritage Gardens border where ours are placed.
Like our “family” of patients, we view our Macomb County townships as places of pride with commitment to the very word “community.” My entire staff extends this through their personal involvements in civic and charity support.
As a general dentist as well as a neuromuscular dentist, I am dedicated to the complete care of smiles of all ages. Here, patients can receive all levels of cosmetic and restorative dentistry (including all stages of dental implants), TMJ therapy, oral appliance therapy (for snoring and obstructive sleep apnea), and advanced methods to treat most stages of gum disease.
Additionally, we are known for our gentle touch and (as some patients say) “painless injections.” For patients who desire additional comfort measures, we offer oral and I.V. sedation (“twilight sleep”). We have developed quite the track record for helping patients to overcome their dental fears and achieve the healthy, confident smiles they desire.
Again, our congratulations to Isabella and Mary! May they have a fabulous future in their chosen healthcare fields!
