Spotlight on one of our Raleigh Dentists: A short interview with Dr. Michael DesRosiers!
Transcript of interview here:
So what brought you to Lane & Associates?
Dr. DesRosiers: So I met Dr. Lane about 10 years ago. And at the time, I was leaving another practice and looking to start my own practice. And he had a building that was kind of for sale, and so I met him to look at that. And I got started talking to him and I actually bought the building, or started to, and then he said, "What are you going to do in the meantime?" And so I said, "I don't know." And he says, "Well, why don't you come and work for me, just until you get this building ready?" So I did, and he put me in some offices that I liked a lot, and I got busy immediately and met a lot of nice people. So that was supposed to last for about three months, and I was there for about six years.
Dr. DesRosiers: Then I started my own practice here and I had it for almost four years, and then we kind of hooked back up together again. So it's been a really good thing, I think, for both of us.
What is your specialty?
Dr. DesRosiers: So, I'm a general dentist by training, but I've done a lot of extra training in cosmetics and TMJ. So I end up doing a lot of those kind of cases. I still do all the regular general dentistry things, but we see a lot of TMJ patients and cosmetic patients, and I enjoy really doing both of those.
What is your favorite part about being a dentist? What do you enjoy the most about working here at Lane & Associates?
Dr. DesRosiers: So, working here at Lane & Associates, the kind of neat thing is I have a really close relationship with Dr. Lane, and so it's really a very open communication directly with him. I don't know that it's that way in other places. If there's something that I need to get the job done better, I get it. If there's extra training that I want to do that I think is going to serve our patients better, I get that.
Dr. DesRosiers: It's really important to me that it's run by a dentist. Dr. Lane is a great dentist and good guy, and so he makes patient-care decisions as a dentist because he is a dentist, and so that's kind of one of the things that makes it really nice.
What makes Lane & Associates different from other dentists? What sets you guys apart?
Dr. DesRosiers: So the one thing, I think, and that I missed when I had my own practice is within our group, we have really everything covered. We have oral surgeons, periodontists, endodontists, general dentists, TMJ specialists. So you can come here, and within our group, you can get anything that you really need done. And geographically, we have a pretty big footprint, too. We cover a lot of ground. If somebody moves, that can typically stay within one of our offices, get all their information transferred and still be kind of in the family.
What's your favorite place to eat by the office here in Raleigh?
Dr. DesRosiers: Wow, right close by, I'd have to say Winston's. It's just predictably fantastic.
When you're looking to keep your teeth clean, what kind of food should you go for?
Dr. DesRosiers: Oh, wow. That's a tough question. I'd rather just get what I want and clean them afterwards.
Does drinking sweet tea affect your teeth at all?
Dr. DesRosiers: So, it does. You know, there's a lot of sugar in sweet tea, and also you do kind of run a risk of staining your teeth from the tea. But like anything else, people do it so it's important not ... if you love it, have it, but then you just have to be pretty diligent about cleaning things afterwards.
What got you interested in TMJ? What makes it different from other aspects of dentistry, and what do you guys do here at the office for TMJ patients?
Dr. DesRosiers: Yeah, so it's interesting. I got into TMJ almost kind of by accident. I was looking to learn more and more about cosmetics, and I went and studied at the Las Vegas Institute in Las Vegas, Nevada, and they taught us all about the cosmetics. But really what they taught us most importantly was how people's teeth got to be in such shape and how to treat the underlying cause of that, of bite disease and things like that.
Dr. DesRosiers: What I found out was there's a whole sort of realm of untreated people that wouldn't even know to come and look for a dentist to help them. They've been to neurologists ... I saw a patient the other day that was getting ready to have surgery and it would've been the worst thing for him to do a fairly aggressive surgery that may or may not have helped him. But it's really, really rewarding to be able to help these folks and kind of give them most of their life back, their quality of life and things like that. And we get a chance to do that every day, so it's a pretty neat thing to be able to do.
What kind of symptoms would I be experiencing that I should be thinking, "Oh, maybe I should go see Lane for TMJ” ?
Dr. DesRosiers: Yeah, that's a good question. The main things people think about coming to the dentist is when they start to have popping and clicking when they open and close their jaw. But what's more kind of out there is we see a lot of patients that don't have that, but they have persistent migraine headaches, neck and shoulder pain, ringing in their ears, tingling in their fingertips or weakness in their hands. And sometimes, most times, they're things that we can help with if not completely eliminate.
