Meet Dr. Gabriel Williams
What excites me most professionally, and what I am most passionate about, is making a dramatic change in people’s lives through cosmetic and restorative treatments. It is amazing to receive such appreciation from my patients after they see the results of all our hard work! Now more than ever, I realize the importance of the work my team and I do in the lives of those in and around Detroit.
EDUCATION AND CONTINUING EDUCATION
A native of Detroit, I graduated from Cass Technical High School and continued on to Howard University in Washington, D.C. I transferred to Wayne State University, where I graduated in 1966. I taught French and German for four years before entering the University of Michigan School of Dentistry, earning my Doctor of Dental Surgery degree in 1975.
After completing a two-year course in straight-wire orthodontics in 1983 and incorporating orthodontics in my practice for over 20 years, I completed training in advanced Damon® System self-ligating braces. I was also the first general dentist in the city to perform implant surgery after interning with Dr. Niznich, the founder of Core-Vent Implants, the first implants used in the United States. In addition to these specialty training courses, I also participate in local seminars in all aspects of dentistry and attend the national convention of the American Dental Association each year.

OUTSIDE THE OFFICE
I have been proud to live in Detroit for my entire life, and enjoyed raising my three children here. They’re all grown up now, and I have been blessed with four grandchildren, with whom I love to spend time. A pilot for more than 30 years, I enjoy reading, traveling, and playing tennis when I’m not flying the friendly skies. Additionally, I am passionate about foreign languages, politics, and the state of our great country.
