Dr. Brian E. Bailey (Retired 6/1/2020)

Dr. Brian Bailey attended the University of Michigan Dental School from 1982 to 1986, and graduated 16th out of 132 students. Upon graduation he took the Northeast Regional Dental Boards and scored between 96 and 100% on all the clinical tests.

Dr. Bailey returned to Midland in the summer of 1986 and, for the past 25+ years, has been devoted to building a dental practice based upon the patients’ satisfaction and best interest. His career satisfaction comes from caring for patients and enhancing their lives by helping them to maintain healthy teeth for a lifetime.

Dr. Bailey has adopted the mottos – Helping People through Dentistry and Straighter & Whiter Is What We Do Every Day – these two concepts drive every facet of his interaction with patients.

During his years in practice, Dr. Bailey has attended hundreds of hours of continuing education in practice management, orthodontics, endodontics, periodontics, crown and bridge, and oral surgery. Other dentists have called him a “perpetual student." He also taught for four years as a part-time clinical instructor at Delta College’s program for dental hygienists.
