MEET THE STAFF
A 2008 graduate of the University of Michigan Dental School, Dr. Jon Feinauer dreamed of becoming a dentist back in high school and says, “I have never once wished I went into any other line of work.” He loves getting to know his patients personally and sharing their excitement about marriages, new jobs, children, travel, and recommendations for good books. He is well-versed in current dental technology and treatments and loves putting those skills to use to make dental work go faster, easier, and less complicated than his patients expect.
Dr. Ramiro Lambaria joined our team after graduating from Case Western Reserve University School of Dental Medicine, serving three years as a dentist in the United States Army, and working with the Navajo Nation in Northeastern Arizona. A childhood accident with a baseball showed him the importance of compassionate dentistry, and he strives to offer that same level of care to every patient he meets. His doctor-patient relationships are built on trust and individualized treatment plans to meet each person’s needs, and he loves the chance to work with both his patients and coworkers, along with “doing something as artistic and impactful as dentistry.”
Your dental health and comfort are the top priorities for Dr. Feinauer and Dr. Lambaria.
