Dr. Michael J. McDevitt is a Diplomate of the American Board of Periodontology. After graduating with honors from Emory University School of Dentistry in 1971 he served in the United States Air Force, where he received advanced training in periodontics. This experience confirmed his desire to help patients keep their teeth with a healthy periodontium, so he completed his formal residency in periodontics at Emory in 1975.
Dr. McDevitt continues to pursue the latest and most effective diagnostic and therapeutic opportunities for his patients through numerous continuing education experiences every year. The value of that ongoing education has becomes especially relevant in light of recent, dramatic revelations in the field of periodontics. New concepts of disease processes and the role of a person's genetics and new strategies to afford each patient more opportunity to be engaged in their own treatment and solutions have evolved.
Over the last 20 of his nearly 40 years of clinical practice treating periodontal compromises, Dr. McDevitt has become a sought after teacher. He has spoken at a number of state, regional and national dental meetings, he teaches graduate dentists several times a year as a member of the visiting faculty at the L. D. Pankey Institute, and recently has begun teaching in workshops for dental teams. His focus is on the compassionate, gentle and precise diagnosis that every patient can understand, leading to each individual patient finding they are able to make healthy decisions, consistent with what is in their own best interest.
Mike has been blessed by his 43 year marriage to his precious wife, Marty, by his children, their spouses and his four grandsons. He and Marty have been active members of the Church of the Apostles since soon after its founding.
