Meet Dr. Gregory Fauth

Gregory L. Fauth, DDS

He is honored to be in a profession where his work allows him to make a difference in the lives of his patients and the people he works with.

Education and Continuing Education

Dr. Fauth obtained his Bachelor of Science degree in biochemistry from Michigan State University. From there, he attended the University of Illinois to complete his Doctorate of Dental Surgery and Certificate in Periodontics.

One of Dr. Fauth’s greatest fears as a professional is becoming outdated in his field.

He is committed and and dedicated to staying at the forefront of all the advances in trends, treatments, and technologies in Periodontoloy.  He has earned Diplomate status by the American Board of Periodontology, a title gained by those who have proven their expertise beyond the training gained in their residency programs.  Further, Dr. Fauth is a charter member of two local study clubs that meet regularly throughout the year. All of this allows Dr. Fauth to provide his patients with the most efficient and effective treatments and most rewarding and beneficial results.
