Dr. Dolores J. Baran

Dr. Dolores Baran is a nationally respected dentist, and for good reason. Her educational credentials and achievements are quite remarkable. You may have heard Dr. Baran interviewed on the radio or read about her. But there's much more to Dr. Baran than just a glittering list of accomplishments. Dr. Baran earned all these accolades not only by being a highly skilled dentist, but also by being the kind of warm and caring person whom her many patients call a friend. She places great emphasis on getting to know her patients and their likes and dislikes.

Among Dr. Baran's distinctive community services is that she is a member dentist of Angel's Place where she donates her time and talent to providing dental services for mentally handicapped patients. Dr. Baran has also been featured in interviews in the Daily Tribune and The Mirror as well as many other local newspapers.

She is a 1988 graduate of the University of Michigan's School of Dentistry.
