Dr. Fear Jr's bio

This content was provided by Dr. Fear Jr "Dr. Dalbert Fear has been serving the Michigan community with high-quality oral and maxillofacial surgery services for almost 30 years. He began practicing at Michigan Oral Surgeons in 1986 following his residency in oral and maxillofacial surgery at the University of Michigan Hospital and has since developed a close relationship with this tight-knit community. When Dr. Fear first joined the practice, he had the privilege of working closely with Dr. Timothy Pickens and Dr. Gilbert Small, both of whom were instructors during his education. Dr. Fear is no stranger to the dental field: his wife is a general dentist, his brother is an orthodontist, and he is extremely proud that his daughter is following in his footsteps and completing her training in oral and maxillofacial surgery. In addition to his family ties to the Michigan medical community, Dr. Fear believes that it is extremely important to work collaboratively with other medical professionals and train future dentists and oral surgeons in order to help improve the overall quality of dental care offered in this community. Throughout his time in this practice, one of Dr. Fear's top priorities is to ensure that every patient receives the most comprehensive and convenient care possible."

The Dr himself seems like a nice guy and very professional. Unfortunately you are not considered a patient to them but just a payday.

Absolutely the best surgeon ever! Not only did he do my first jaw surgery, he fixed my jaw again. I was in an accident and he did the second one to fix a botched job done in Miami. He is truly the best, I wouldn't let anyone do any work on me if wasn't him.
