Our office is very important to me and I take a lot of pride in the work we do for our patients and our high standards.

Teaching and helping my patients to be overall healthier people gives me great satisfaction especially when they see the results and feel better because of it.

Mary Sue, Registered Dental Hygienist

I began my career in dentistry in 1970. After high school, I worked for a children’s dental group. I then attended Ferris State University and graduated as a RDH. I always felt I was destined to work in dentistry, as my father and uncle were both dentists. After graduation, I began working in a general dental practice started by my family. I was there 41 years to the day.

Little did I know the best was yet to come. On July 1, 2015, I became part of Dr. John Steinberg’s dental team. What an honor this is. I am so thankful and grateful to work as a Dental Hygienist within this practice. I am in awe of Dr. Steinberg’s kindness, generosity and true loving and caring nature toward his staff and patients. I cherish the friendship and memories I am making here.

I have been married for 39 years. My husband is a recently retired military and retail pharmacist. We have one daughter (and her golden doodle) She has made her career in marketing/advertising.

I always look forward to spending time with my family and friends, especially at my summer home on Russell Island.

Victoria, Dental Assistant

Hello there! As a resident of St. Clair Shores, I am a fellow “Shorian”. I graduated from Lakeview High School and went to Macomb Community College. The dental field found me, I didn’t find it and I am so glad that it did! I absolutely love my job. I am one of the smiling faces you’ll find in the treatment rooms assisting the doctors, helping make your experience comfortable and getting to know you on a more personable level. With my experience in photography I might also be the face behind the camera capturing some of our doctor’s fabulous work. I respect the knowledge, kindness and excellent skill of our doctors that enables us to provide the best dental care possible. I truly couldn’t imagine a better place to work, the teamwork and upbeat attitudes shown from all of the staff make each work day a great day.
