Pediatric dentist Dr. James Busch

James L. Busch, DDS

Pediatric Dentist

While in dental school I realized I had a passion for working with kids. I pursued further education earning a specialty certificate in pediatric dentistry. In addition, I am also board certified with the American Board of Pediatric Dentistry. I enjoy skiing, golfing, running, cycling and just about any outdoor activity.


Orthodontist Dr. Lauren Busch

Lauren S. Busch, DDS, MS


Before dental school I worked for an orthodontist and absolutely loved it! What is not to like – making smiles look wonderful and hanging out with kids. After dental school, I earned my Masters of Science in orthodontics. I love speaking with children about what bothers them about their teeth and working with them to achieve a beautiful smile. I am a Michigan Wolverine fan! I also enjoy cooking, skiing, golfing and being with my family.


I have a passion for orthodontic research and always strive to provide evidence based care. Below are links to my publications.
