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.

Jennifer

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.

Patient Coordinator

I joined the Associates in Family Dentistry team in March 2020 as a front desk patient coordinator. I am usually the first person you will see when coming into the office. Some of my responsibilities include overseeing our front desk operations, greeting patients, answering the phone, scheduling appointments, doing financial arrangements, and miscellaneous “behind the scenes” tasks. I love what I do here at Associates in Family Dentistry and am fortunate to work with a great group of people!

In my spare time I enjoy spending time with my family and my pets. I have a black lab named Diesel and a cat named Ivy. My hobbies include going on walks with my dog, kayaking, reading, watching movies, and fishing.

Patient Coordinator

I began working at Associates in Family Dentistry in September 2020. As a patient coordinator, I handle the ins and outs of the patient’s experience here in the office. Along with scheduling appointments, I assist patients in person and over the phone as well as manage everyday front desk tasks. I thoroughly enjoy the interactions and experiences I get to have with patients and my coworkers every day. I am so grateful for the opportunity to work with the caring and devoted people that I do here at Associates in Family Dentistry.

In my free time I enjoy drawing, painting, reading, rock collecting, and spending time with family.

RDH

Graduating from Ferris State University in spring 2020 with my degree in Dental Hygiene, I pursued my dental career in the Traverse City area where I was raised. Although I am new to dental hygiene, my enthusiasm and fun-loving attitude is what will keep you coming back! I am proud to be a member of the Associates in Family Dentistry team.

Aside from dentistry, I enjoy skiing, boating, and hiking in my free time; as well as spending time with my daughter, close friends, and family!

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.

Ann

RDH

I am originally from Mid-Michigan, where I graduated from Delta College with a degree in Dental Assisting in 2010. I decided to further my education and received my degree in Dental Hygiene from Mott Community College in 2015 and worked for a private practice in Clarkston.
I had been visiting Traverse City every year since I was an infant and dreamed of one day living here. That dream became a reality in May 2020 when my family decided to make the move up here. I am proud to work at Associates in Family Dentistry and look forward to increasing my knowledge; learning each day.

My husband and I have two young children, who take up much of my time, however, in the free time I do have, I enjoy baking, traveling, golfing, being outdoors, and of course spending as much time as I can with my family.
