Donald Powers, DDS
"Dentistry means a great deal to me. It has inspired me to work harder than I ever thought possible and has taken me to places to meet wonderful people that I would have never had the opportunity to meet before. I am continually inspired by my family of patients to provide incredible care every day to help them maintain oral health for a lifetime.
My team is made up of individuals hand-picked for their dedication to delivering state-of-the-art dentistry to our patients. This group is so smart and the synergistic effect is evident in what we accomplish every day. As a group we complement one another and truly enjoy working and playing together."

They have a daughter, Lindsay, who lives in Phoenix and a son, Ryan, who lives in Royal Oak. Dr. Powers dedicates most of his free time to studying new advancements in dentistry, but when he takes a break from his constant reading, he can be found on the golf course.
