Dr. Eagan's bio

This content was provided by Dr. Eagan "For Dr. J. Victor Eagan, orthodontics wasn’t just an interest, it was in his blood. Dr. Eagan is the son of Dr. John Eagan, the first African American orthodontist in the state of Michigan and the third African American orthodontist in the world. He started working in his father’s office when he was 10 years old, and he’s known since then that he was going to be an orthodontist, too. Like his father, Dr. Eagan belongs to an exclusive group of specialists in the field of orthodontics, the branch of dentistry that uses braces for the correction of misaligned teeth and jaws. Since orthodontics became a science of its own in the late 1800s, only around 125 African Americans has held this esteemed position. Dr. Eagan, only one of about seven known African American orthodontists to operate a private practice in Michigan, has one of the most successful orthodontic practices in the nation. People from all over the world seek his technical expertise. He’s widely known for his use of state-of-the-art equipment and cutting-edge technology. Dr. Eagan understands that, for many, braces are more about a healthy self-image than anything else. “We communicate to the world through our mouths. And when your mouth is beautiful, it creates an aura that you are together, that you are beautiful,” he explains. He also stresses that braces are not just for kids. “A lot of adults didn’t have the opportunity to straighten out their smile when they were children,” he says, explaining that adults of any age can improve their smile. Dr. Eagan received his undergraduate training at the prestigious University of Michigan and went on to the university’s School of Dentistry where he received his Doctor of Dental Surgery with honors. He practiced general dentistry for eight years before obtaining advanced specialty training in the field of orthodontics at Howard University School of Dentistry in Washington, D.C., where he graduated as valedictorian. Dr. Eagan is active in many local civic and community organizations and is a member of the American Dental Association, the National Dental Association, the Great Lakes Association of Orthodontists and the American Association of Orthodontists. Among many other honors, Dr. Eagan is listed in the prestigious Who’s Who Among Executives and Professionals directory. In 1996, he was named Orthodontist of the Year by the Consumer Business Review. In 1997, he was bestowed the Jeann R. Vogt Celebration of Leadership Award by the Accounting Aid Society. He was honored with the Outstanding Scientific Award by the National Association of Black MBA’s in 1998, and most recently in 2009, he was recognized as a Top Dentist by HOUR Detroit magazine. In addition to being a successful orthodontist, Dr. Eagan is also an ordained minister, author and international speaker. He and wife, Catherine Eagan, head Eagan Financial Group, L.L.C. and have collectively authored more than 10 books. Dr. Eagan also runs Eagan Ortho Properties, L.L.C., a real estate holding company, and Eagan Companies, Ltd., a diversified holding company. Dr. and Mrs. Eagan reside in Orchard Lake, Michigan and Boca Raton, Florida."
