My dental-care philosophy centers around developing a relationship with my patients. This begins with sitting down and talking with you, first and foremost, to get to know you and become aware of your dental needs and desires. This creates a level of trust that we hope evolves into a lasting relationship that we value so much. We want you to have optimum oral health for a lifetime.
I believe it is important that my patients understand their dental health, and that we discuss their needs and concerns. By way of proper diagnosis, comprehensive treatment planning, and patient education, we help our patients achieve their oral health goals. I am also committed to continual education, which helps me provide the state-of-the-art care I feel my patients deserve.
My staff and I really enjoy what we do and are very proud of the patient-care we provide. We look forward to having you join our family of patients.
I look forward to meeting you,
Dr. James R. Stewart, Jr., graduated from the University of Michigan with a B.S. degree in microbiology, and then earned his D.D.S. degree from its School of Dentistry in 1987. The following year he completed a general practice residency at the Sinai Hospital of Detroit.

He has completed the curriculum at the prestigious Dawson Center for Advanced Dental Studies, and continues to take additional courses there. In addition, Dr. Stewart completed the Advanced Prosthetic Training Program at the Postdoctoral Dental Studies Institute. He also participates in several local study clubs and enjoys studying dental sleep medicine.
