Dr. Mike Owen, DDS
Dr. Mike Owen practiced dentistry in Harbor Springs for about five years and has been in the Metro Detroit area since then. He has been actively involved in implant dentistry since 1991 and was awarded special recognition in 1997 for his advanced training in that field. Dr. Owen has been a leader in organized dentistry for his whole career, and has twice served as President of the Michigan Academy of General Dentistry. He is currently the national Chair of Membership for the AGD, taking him to many destinations throughout the country. Mike has always prided himself in treating all of his patients with a calm understanding and a gentle touch. Using dental implants, cosmetic procedures, and complex restorative procedures has become second nature to him over the years. He really enjoys helping his patients improve their lives and their confidence in themselves by giving them the smile they deserve.
His college career was spent at Michigan State during the glory days of Kirk Gibson and Magic Johnson. It has been said that they benefited greatly in their athletic endeavors from the schooling provided by the young Mike Owen. Mike graduated from MSU in 1981 with a degree in zoology and psychology and continued his education at University of Detroit School of Dentistry. He officially became a DDS in 1985.
Dr. Mike Owen was raised in Harbor Springs, Michigan. While not in the Upper Peninsula, Harbor Springs is far enough north that his partners in the office have graciously bestowed honorary Yooper status on him. While there, he was involved in many sports and began skiing at Nub's Nob at age two. Being raised on a horse farm allowed him to spend many hours raising, training, and showing Arabian horses, and to develop some good shoveling muscles. Mike has lived in Novi since 1995 with his wife Maureen and their three children. Their lives revolve around a variety of sports and their continued passions for skiing and travel. Now that two of their kids are in college, they hope to be able to do even more of that in the future.
