Meet Dr. Chames
Welcome to our practice. I grew up in Southeastern Michigan. My passion for dentistry began at a young age. With my father being a dentist, I learned firsthand the importance of good oral health, along with the skills and compassion necessary to care for patients.
Academically I excelled and received a full scholarship to attend Wayne State University. I received my bachelor’s degree in chemistry in 1990. From there, I went on to the University of Michigan School of Dentistry, where I obtained my dental degree in 1994. While attending dental school, I developed a deep interest in oral surgery. To further my training, I decided to head west for California to attend the University of Southern California. I completed their internship program in Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery before accepting a position in the residency. From 1995-1999 I participated in the Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery program at USC with completion in June of 1999. During my extensive training in all aspects of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery, I developed a strong interest in dental implants and have continued it into private practice.
I returned home to practice, and joined Oakland Oral Surgery. I became board certified by the American Board of Oral & Maxillofacial Surgery in 2002 and was recertified in 2012 to maintain my Diplomate status. I have also served as past President to the Western Branch of the Detroit District Dental Society. I take great pride in caring for my patients and will never make a recommendation that I would not make to my own family. I also respect that a patient’s time is valuable and will do my best not to have people wait.
Currently, I am on staff at Huron Valley Hospital.
In my free time I enjoy traveling, visiting Florida, golfing and fishing.
