Dr. James Peters, DDS

Dr. James Peters

I have always had a great passion for working with my hands. When I am not working on restoring teeth, I am often working on projects to restore and improve my home and historic barn. My other interests include tailgating for college football games and outdoor activities including fishing, sailing and golfing.

My wife and I also have a great interest in travel. Through her work as a graduate student and now a professor at MSU, we were able to visit wonderful places including Fiji, Hawaii, Solomon Islands, and Tahiti. We have a shared love of waterfalls and take every chance we can get to seek them out.

Our family has grown to five with our daughter, Avery, son, Troy and our chocolate lab. Dr. Peters is a member of the Michigan Dental Association, American Dental Association, Central District Dental Society, where he served six years on the Peer Review Board.
