Meet Our Team
The staff here at Brian Fisher DDS and the Denture Care Clinic attend continuing education courses to stay current with procedures and materials to provide the best care possible. More importantly though, we consider ourselves a family who work together to identify and mindfully treat each patient as an individual with unique dental health needs.
Dr. Fisher graduated from the University of Detroit Dental School in 1983 and has been treating patients in Northern Michigan ever since. He is a member of the American Dental Association, Michigan Dental Association and the Resort District Dental Society. Dr. Fisher is a 2nd generation dentist, having followed in his father’s footsteps and is delighted that his son will graduate from the University of Michigan's Dental School in 2017.
Aside from dentistry, community involvement is important to Dr. Fisher. He is a long time board member and past president of Tart Trails, and supports many charitable organizations that serve our community. In his free time, Dr. Fisher enjoys the many outdoor activities that the Traverse City area has to offer with biking and paddling among his favorites. He and his wife Vera especially look forward to any opportunity to spend time with their grown children and three grandchildren.
