Dr. Mike Crete

Dr. Mike Crete

Dr. Mike Crete has practiced dentistry in West Michigan for the past 30 years. He is a graduate of Central Michigan University and received his DDS degree from the University of Michigan School of Dentistry. He grew up in the Bay City area and moved to Grandville to start a dental practice in the late 80's.

Dr. Crete turned over his Grandville practice to his young associate in order to pursue his passion to teach and mentor young dentists. He teaches various courses at the LD Pankey Institute for Continuing Dental Education, facilitates dental study clubs throughout West Michigan, and continues to enjoy practicing dentistry in the Lakewood Community.

Mike and his wife, Mary Ann, have 4 grown children. His oldest son, Ryan, and wife, Angela, reside in Grand Rapids with their three boys, Mason, Logan and Brooks. His other three children, Brad(Annie), Amy(Rickey), and Molly all live out-of-state and often find themselves back in Michigan...especially in the summer!

Dr. Crete is a very caring, talented and experienced dentist with impressive professional credentials. He is passionate about optimal dental health for his patients and is committed to always treating each patient as an individual.

He enjoys treating patients of all ages and is especially interested in helping his patients maintain optimum dental health. He wants everyone to have dental care that ensures they have maximum comfort, chewing function and aesthetics. He is extremely skilled at simplifying what seems like complex dental issues and always works with each individual patient to satisfy their personal needs and goals.

Dr. Crete is very passionate about helping our patients keep their own teeth. One of the most frequent comments we receive in our office is...."Wow...I didn't know that type of treatment was available..I always thought I'd lose all my teeth and need dentures." Dr. Crete's patients are always pleased to hear about his treatment options that allow most patients to keep their own teeth and be proud of their smile.

Since taking over for Dr. Jerry Licari (retired after almost 40 years in Lake Odessa) Dr. Crete has found the Lake Odessa community to be very welcoming. Day-after-day patients compliment the team at Lake Odessa Dental on how gentle, caring and detailed Dr. Crete is.

Dr. Crete is honored to carry on Dr. Licari's legacy for providing caring and comfortable dental care here in the Lakewood area.
