Anne Kelly – Special to the News-Review
EAST JORDAN — For Dr. Sara Hall, the timing was perfect.
Born and raised in Traverse City, the dentist had lived in Knoxville, Tenn., with her husband, Matt, for 10 years, and both wanted to come back to Michigan.
Hall’s father, Dr. Richard Johnson, with a well-established dental practice in East Jordan, was ready to retire. Offering the building to his daughter to set up her own practice, Hall Dental, was a perfect transition for them both.
Hall, a 2004 graduate of the University of Michigan School of Dentistry, moved to Knoxville with her husband and found employment with the Knoxville Health Department. Her practice there was child-centered and she hopes to continue with the same emphasis in East Jordan.
“I am all about prevention and education,” she said. “The importance of early intervention is paramount to life-long dental health. I think that understanding the apprehension that children and adults harbor about dentistry, is half the battle.”
Hall believes that children who have parents who value dentistry, will value it themselves. She welcomes parents with young children to her office and creates an atmosphere that is part play, part exploration and part exposure to dental care.
“I think that tooth decay is a 100 percent preventable disease,” she said. “There is really no excuse not to start early and maintain check-ups on a regular basis. Under the Affordable Care Act, routine dental visits and treatments are covered.
“Even if a 2-year-old just comes in to watch and plays around and feels comfortable here, it helps him or her get ready for later visits.”
Hall’s office space has been newly appointed with the latest in dental equipment and a child-friendly waiting room.
“Every summer that we lived in Knoxville, we spent our vacation time dreaming about the day we’d come back and now we have,” Hall said.
The dentist hopes to arrange for presentations in the East Jordan schools to familiarize the community with the services she offers, and welcomes new patients. To schedule an appointment, call Hall Dental at (231) 536-5030.
Echocardiography On Wheels provides echocardiograms (cardiac ultrasounds) to patients where they feel most comfortable, whether that is their home or physician office. This important test can detect structural abnormalities in the heart. Additionally, physician offices and residential care facilities can call us in to do one or more studies in a day for a reduced rate. We are happy to bill insurance, and all studies are read by a board-certified Cardiologist. We charge less than 50% of the national average rate for this service and have payment plans to suit everyone because we don’t want finances to stop anyone from getting this important test.
