Giving Back

Dentistry From The Heart

Dr. Michael Sullivan, of locally owned Beacon Dental Center, has made dentistry his passion since 2005 and shares a commitment to providing exceptional dental care throughout Northern Michigan. Each year, Beacon Dental Center opens its arms and its office to provide a day of FREE dental care to those in need throughout Northern Michigan. Patients come from across the state and even Canada to receive free services on a first-come first-served basis. Since 2011, Beacon Dental Center has provided over $500,000 in free dental work to the Northern Michigan community. Volunteers, Beacon Dental Center team members and their friends and family members, along with volunteer dentists, come together and give of their time and talents to give back. Lives are changed, smiles rebuilt, laughter and tears are shared.

Dominican Republic Mission Trip

Serving a medical mission has been Dr. Sullivan’s life-long dream of his and he was very excited to have had the opportunity to provide free dental care to those in need across the world. In 2016, Dr. Sullivan, his children along with five members of the Beacon Dental Center traveled to the island of the Dominican Republic to provide dental and oral health care along with medical and humanitarian aid. In partnership with World Mission Partners, the Beacon Dental Center group was the first team to take dental and medical services to the people of Haiti and the Dominican Republic. We were very excited to help pave the way for many future medical mission teams.
