Michael Rogers, DDS
Dr. Michael Rogers graduated with honors from Harvard and attended dental school at UCLA. Prepared for anything that would be presented to him, he has had training in oral surgery, plastic surgery, anesthesiology and emergency medicine.
In private practice in Northern Virginia for more than 30 years, his interest in dentistry developed at an early age when a childhood illness left him with weak tooth enamel, resulting in abundant cavities plus staining from antibiotics.
Having had a good experience with braces, he thought he would be an orthodontist. In dental school, however, he found all aspects of dentistry interesting and pursued general dentistry with an emphasis on combining dentistry and medicine.
Dr. Rogers has invested significant time in ongoing education, learning emerging technologies and techniques in the areas of cosmetic dentistry, implant dentistry, sleep apnea treatments, orthodontics, temporomandibular joint (TMJ) disorders and safe amalgam replacement. The practice is mercury safe.
“I find the most satisfaction in helping patients with intricate issues, many of which I have also experienced,” says Dr. Rogers. “I have twice been treated with orthodontics, had TMJ treatments and cosmetic dentistry, and worn an oral device for sleep apnea. I can relate.”
The most significant change in dentistry during his career is the focus on overall health in the assessment and treatment of dental patients. This approach, called Complete Health Dentistry, is becoming the norm, but Dr. Rogers was way ahead of the curve and has the area’s leading practice with that dual expertise.
