Why Smiles on MainStreet?
Simply because we care...
When was the last time you looked forward to seeing your dentist? For the patients of Smiles on Main Street the answer is often "always." Dr. Diana Whittaker is taking over the tradition started by Dr. Penny Flury of treating all of her patients like family. Sure, the staff at Smiles on Main are exceptional in their treatment. Of course Dr. Whittaker is highly skillful, highly trained, and gentle. But what we feel makes our office special is the way you feel while you are here. We believe that good oral health starts with you loving your dentist and your dentist's office loving you! Like Dr. Penny always said, "It's something to smile about."
A letter from Dr. Penny Flury
To My Patient Family,
After thirty years of dedicated service, I am excited to announce my transition from practice ownership. It has been a wild ride developing a dental office and being part of the Plymouth community. I have had the time of my life taking that ride with all of you.
I have experienced such joy within the walls of 584 South Main with all of you. I have enjoyed every minute of the practice we built here. From the day we opened the doors I have always felt that my office was more than a place to help people smile, it is a place where my staff and l have created a family. Above all, I have enjoyed our friendship and a shared commitment towards a lifetime of good dental health. Established on the day I opened the doors; my logo stands clearer to me now than before... It is “something to smile about.”
I want to assure you that I am leaving you in great hands. I have carefully selected Dr. Diana Whittaker to carry on in my footsteps. I am certain that you will enjoy getting to know her and being in her care. Dr. Diana is a skilled dentist and an extremely caring person. She has the qualifications and desire to continue the practice in the manner in which you know. She brings additional services too! You can watch for an updated website to meet Dr. Diana online, wait for your dental visit to meet her in person, or just drop by to say hello.
Dr. Diana Whittaker is taking over Smiles on Main Street with a big heart, friendly demeanor, and a wealth of experience and credentials. She believes in treating all of her patients with care, compassion, and a gentle touch. She prides herself on explaining treatment options so that her patients understand and can be an active participant in determining their course of action. She truly puts her patients first.
Originally from Massachusetts, Dr. Diana earned a Bachelor of Science in Biology at Boston College. She received her Doctor of Dental Surgery degree from Creighton University in Omaha, Nebraska. Dr. Whittaker has since earned a certificate for Esthetic, Cosmetic and Implant Dentistry from the University of Minnesota and has training in Advanced Implant placement and sinus augmentation techniques from the University of Michigan. She is part of the 7% of general dentists that have earned Fellowship status in the Academy of General Dentistry. Dr. Whittaker is also a qualified dentist in the American Academy of Dental Sleep Medicine and will soon be one of only a few dentists in the state of Michigan that have obtained diplomate status. She is an active member in the American Dental Association, Michigan Dental Association, Detroit District Dental Society, Academy of General Dentistry, American Academy of Dental Sleep Medicine, Chicago Dental Society and has presented at the International Academy of Dental Research.
When she is not being a dentist, Dr. Diana loves spending time with her husband, Noah, and their son Emerson. She enjoys playing ice hockey, traveling, and trying new things. When asked what she would like our patients to know about her she simply said, "I love what I do and I can’t wait to meet every patient.”
If you currently have an appointment with one of our doctors, you will be seen by Dr. Diana instead. We do not expect any interruption in your dental care. The office hours will stay the same and your patient chart will remain in place. In addition, you can expect to see the familiar faces of the staff you know so well.
I wish to extend a heartfelt thank you for all of your support and encouragement over the course of my dental career. It is time for me to experience life without borders and explore uncharted territories. It is also time to show our beautiful smiles and be kind!
In the bonds of great dental health,
Penny S. Flury, D.D.S., M.B.A.
