Dr. Faye Stokes was born and raised in Michigan City. She joined Michigan City Dental, P.C. in 2002 as a dental assistant, before continuing her passion by becoming a dentist at Indiana University School of Dentistry. Dr. Stokes and her husband, Dr. Shane Harmon, are currently practicing dentistry full time at Michigan City Dental, P.C.. Dr. Stokes is very active in Michigan City and in the field of dentistry. She is currently on the Board of Directors of the Michigan City Chamber of Commerce, and she has been on the Board of Directors for Proctor and Gamble's Crest and Oral-B websites. She is also a member of the Michigan City Rotary, the LaPorte County Dental Society, the Indiana Dental Society, and the American Dental Association. In her free time, Dr. Stokes enjoys cycling the backroads with her husband, and she likes to invent new recipes in her kitchen, keeping her athletic family healthy and happy. Having a Bachelor of Science degree in nutrition, also from Indiana University, Dr. Stokes is committed to providing a holistic approach to dental care, focusing on the dental health as well as the overall health of her patients.
Dr. Stokes provides state of the art care with a gentle, unhurried touch. Her team understands that people lead busy lives, but they are happy to work with their patients schedules to help them with their dental needs. She offers evening and weekend appointments, and home visits for the disabled.
Dr. Stokes and the staff at Michigan City Dental P.C. have a commitment to providing technologically advanced dentistry that is environmentally conscious. She works with Cerec technology to custom design crowns and bridges the very same day in office, so there is no wait for patients with temporary teeth. She also has an in-house laboratory where she and the staff can make adjustments and repairs to dentures and partials in hours, rather than taking days or weeks for a lab far away like many other providers. While doing all this, her office makes environmentally conscious choices, using digital records rather than paper charts, digital xrays rather than the chemicals used in film. In fact, there is no bio-hazardous waste leaving the office at all.
Dr. Stokes sees patient's of all ages. She encourages parents to be an active part of their child's dental health, starting dental visits early and building good habits at a young age. She continues this proactive approach with adults, being an active part in every patient's appointment. She sees medically compromised patients, and having a Bachelor's degree in nutrition, she is happy to work with all patients to improve both their dental health and their overall health.
Healthgrades does not collect malpractice information for Indiana.
What is medical malpractice?
Medical malpractice is issued when negligence by a doctor causes injury to a patient. For example, a doctor may improperly diagnose, treat or medicate outside the standard of medical care. The three types of malpractice are: a settlement, an arbitration award, or a judgment.
If my doctor has malpractice history, does that mean he or she is a poor-quality doctor?
If your doctor has a malpractice claim, evaluate the information and determine if the action could potentially impact the quality of care you receive. Claim settlements and arbitration awards may occur for a variety of reasons, which should not necessarily reflect negatively on the doctor's professional competence or conduct. You may want to use this information to start a discussion with the doctor about his or her history and specific ability to provide healthcare for you.
How far back does Healthgrades malpractice history go?
Healthgrades reports details of a doctor’s malpractice history when the doctor has at least one closed medical malpractice claim within the last five years, even if he or she no longer practices in that state.
For which states does Healthgrades collect malpractice history?
Healthgrades collects malpractice information from California, Colorado, Connecticut, Florida, Georgia, Illinois, Massachusetts, Nevada, New Jersey, New York, North Carolina, Oregon, Tennessee, Texas, Vermont, Virginia, and West Virginia. If your doctor has a malpractice claim, evaluate the information and determine if the action could potentially impact your quality of care. Sometimes multiple states report the same claim. If a provider practices in a state where data is unavailable, please reach out to your local state legislature to help make this data publicly available.
No sanctions history found for the years that Healthgrades collects data.
What is a sanction or disciplinary action?
A sanction, also known as a disciplinary action, is an action taken to punish or restrict a doctor who has demonstrated professional misconduct. Sanctions may be imposed by a state medical board, professional medical licensing organization, or the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services.
If my doctor has sanction history, does that mean he or she is a poor-quality doctor?
If a doctor has a sanction, it does not necessarily mean that he or she is a poor-quality doctor. Some sanctions are not related to medical care, and involve a doctor’s finances or administrative activities. Before you make any choices about changing your doctor, we recommend that you evaluate the doctor’s sanction information and determine how severe or relevant you think the sanction cause and action were.
How far back does Healthgrades sanction history go?
Healthgrades reports state and federal sanctions from the previous five years, except when a doctor's license has been revoked or surrendered. Healthgrades displays all actions for doctors whose licenses have been revoked or surrendered.
For which states does Healthgrades collect sanction history?
Healthgrades collects sanction history from all 50 U.S. states. Physicians with a disciplinary action in one state may move to another state where they have a clean record. Since Healthgrades painstakingly compiles disciplinary action information from all 50 states, Healthgrades website will show if a physician has a disciplinary action in more than one state.
0 Board Actions
No board actions found for the years that Healthgrades collects data.
What are board actions?
Board actions are non-disciplinary actions imposed upon a doctor based on a complaint investigation. A patient or medical colleague may file a complaint with that state medical board or professional licensing organization, which then investigates the complaint. Board actions are intended to ensure that a doctor is able to perform safe medical and health care tasks.
Types of non-disciplinary actions include an advisory letter, a corrective action agreement, a limitation or restriction on the medical or healthcare tasks a doctor can perform, or a voluntary agreement by the doctor not to practice. A board action can also include a termination of a corrective action agreement or voluntary agreement, which allows the doctor to return to full practice.
If my doctor has a board action, does that mean he or she is a poor-quality doctor?
If a doctor has a board action, it means he or she has had a non-disciplinary action imposed upon him or her. It does not necessarily mean that he or she is a poor quality doctor. Before you make any choices about changing your doctor, evaluate the doctor's board action information and determine how severe or relevant you think the cause and action were.
How far back does Healthgrades non-disciplinary board action history go?
