Meet Dr. Veraghen
Dentist in Dearborn
Dr. Gary C. Veraghen received a Bachelor of Science in Biology from the University of Michigan. Thereafter he went on to study at the University of Michigan School of Dentistry where he graduated as a Doctor of Dental Surgery in 1981.
Dr. Veraghen realized early on in his dental career that continued education was the key to providing his patients with the best, most comfortable, rewarding and healthy results. Each year he pursues advanced courses, attends peer study groups, and participates in seminars to ensure a high level of success. However, his work with Dr. John Kois has provided him with the most comprehensive approach to successful dentistry.
The Creating Restorative Excellence Program with Dr. John Kois is comprehensive, and enables Dr. Veraghen to enhance and expand both his knowledge and skills in restorative dentistry. He can perform predictable, controlled, and cost effective restorative dentistry at the highest level. The courses include working with life-like implants to proper smile design for life-long results.
