The Team at Associates in Family Dentistry

Experience the Difference! High-Tech  Dental and Smiles for the Whole Family.

Michael C. Hutchison

Michael C. Hutchison

DDS, AAACD

As a cosmetic dentist with more than twenty-nine years of experience, Dr. Michael Hutchison quickly reached the pinnacle of his career by becoming an accredited member of the Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry (AACD) in April 2001, as one of only 250 members worldwide.

Dr. Hutchison practices dentistry based on one primary goal: to provide excellence in dental services and overall care to his patients. Dr. Hutchison graduated from Loyola University’s Dental School where he received his Doctor of Dental Surgery degree in 1987. Upon completion of dental school he practiced in LaGrange, Illinois for 10 years.

Moving to the Traverse City area with his family in 1997, he quickly established a thriving dental practice that has progressed into one of the area’s most quality-driven practices for both general and cosmetic dentistry in the Northern Michigan region and beyond. Dr. Hutchison focuses on creating a team-approach with each patient to deliver the best overall care possible. If you are looking for exceptional dentistry delivered in a relaxing atmosphere, look no further than Dr. Hutchison!

Outside of serving as one of the top family and cosmetic dentists in Traverse City, Dr. Hutchison enjoys spending time with his family, boating, playing golf and using computers. His dental interests focus on cosmetic dentistry, implants, pain management (TMJ), and sleep disorders.

Office Manager

I have been working at Associates in Family Dentistry since 1999. I graduated from Central Michigan University in 1997 with a B.S. in Elementary Education. Shortly thereafter I discovered my love for dentistry! I thoroughly enjoy working in this industry and am proud to say I work at Associates in Family Dentistry.

I love warm weather and, with living in Northern Michigan, it is known that summertime is my absolute favorite time of year. I enjoy fishing on many of the beautiful lakes with my husband and children. I also like playing sports and most any game in general.

Michelle

Patient Coordinator

I have spent years in customer service in varied fields and in detail management in administrative positions, fostering my natural love of comforting and assisting people in their endeavors; aiming to help them feel informed. I joined the team at Associates in Family Dentistry in December 2017 as a front desk patient coordinator. I am usually the first person you will see when coming into the office and have made it my objective to invite patients into a space that is relaxed and approachable. I work with patients to schedule their dental visits and navigate with them, how their insurance plan affects their visit. I know that a patient can experience a less intimidating visit to the dentist if their scheduling and insurance questions
are answered.

In my free time, I love connecting with family first and relaxing in nature (my second love) through any outside experience from biking and walking, to gardening and bonfires, and everything in between!

RDH

Graduating from Ferris State University with my degree in Dental Hygiene, I pursued my dental career in the Traverse City area. I have been in practice now for over 20 years and am proud to be a member of the Associates in Family Dentistry team. I believe making our patients feel like they are part of our family is what sets our practice apart from the rest.

Aside from dentistry, I enjoy kayaking, skiing, sewing and reading as well as spending time with my husband, two grown children and my grandchild.

RDH

While I may be a new smiling face at Associates in Family Dentistry in 2019, I bring with me ten years of dental hygiene experience.  I am a Traverse City native and graduated with honors from TC West in 2006.  I then went on to study and graduate on the Dean’s List from Ferris State University in 2009.  I pride myself in my gentle and detailed cleanings and would love to help with any dental concerns or goals you may have at your next appointment!

Outside of dentistry, I love working on home renovations, traveling, and spending time outdoors.

RDA

I grew up a native of the area and graduated from Northwestern Michigan College dental assisting program in 2016 with my RDA license. I spent the first few years of my assisting career working in Mid-Michigan. My husband and I welcomed our son in December 2018. We knew we wanted to raise him in Northern Michigan, so we moved back to the area. I joined the team at Associates in Family Dentistry in May 2019. I look forward to furthering my dental career here!
I love all things our beautiful state has to offer. In my free time, I like to go hiking with my dogs and enjoy spending family time with my husband and son.
