His prominence in the dental profession began as early at his graduation, from dental school at Emory University in 1980. At the graduation ceremony he was honored with clinical awards, inducted as a member of Omicron Kappa Upsilon, a national dental honor society, and “With Honors,” signifying a class rank of number two out of ninety-three dentists.

Dr. Gary Michels recently earned an Associate Fellow in the American Academy of Implant Dentistry as well as a Fellow in the International Congress of Oral Implantology.

Decades ago, Dr. Michels began his cosmetic dental training with a man many consider to be the founder of cosmetic dentistry, Dr. Ronald Goldstein. More recently, Dr. Michels has continued his studies with the most noted cosmetic dentists in the United States including, “the dentist of the stars” Larry Rosenthal of New York.
