Michael Guirguis, DDS
Michael was raised in Ireland and England, before his family relocated to Cleveland, Ohio. Growing up with a dentist uncle and physician parents, a medical career was always in the back of his mind. “I started college majoring in finance,” he said. “But the thought of a life behind a desk with little human contact changed my mind. The influence of his uncle and parents showed him that, through medicine, he could impact lives.”
Michael went on to complete his undergraduate studies at Miami University of Oxford, Ohio and dental school at The Ohio State University. Then as they say, he wasn’t born in Texas but got here as quickly as he could, continuing his education with an Advanced Education in General Dentistry Residency at Baylor College of Dentistry.
Before joining his brother, James, and Dr. Brent Fleming at Richardson Dentistry, he was in private practice for several years in the Dallas area.
