He maintains a strong belief in his own personal and professional development and strives consistently to deliver dental care that goes beyond patient expectations in an environment that is welcoming, comfortable and stress free. “Dr M” maintains an ongoing involvement in residencies, study clubs, and was previously a clinical instructor in dental hygiene at George Brown College.
In 2006 he opened Dentistry On Norwich to serve patients in the Woodstock, Ontario area and now runs the Woodstock Dental and Wellness Centre.

The clinic also offers “sleep dentistry” and full-mouth aesthetic and reconstructive dentistry. Dr Michaels also sees select patients in need at Woodstock General Hospital.
He maintains an active lifestyle and spends every spare minute he can with his amazing family.
