I have been going to Dr Baran for more years than I can remember, she took over for my Dentist that I had as a young child and into my adulthood. When she started her practice, she started with all the new cutting edge services from day one. As a result my teeth and the health of my gums have never been better, and I am now a senior citizen! I have had everything done from crowns, root canals to veneers. I have never ever had a problem with any of her work. I highly recommend her practice and she truly is a real person!

Dr.Baran is the best dentist I have ever visited. She has done all of my cosmetic work and multiple crowns. My teeth have never looked better. I love that I leave with a crown on the same day as my appointment. She always accommodates my busy schedule. Her staff is so attentive. They always do a great job at making me feel comfortable while I am in the chair. Her office accepts my insurance and I have never had an issue. I absolutely recommend Dr.Barans office if you are looking for a new dentist. She is wonderful.

I hadn’t been to the dentist in several years and finally decided that I needed to get back on track after having my son. The staff at Dr. Baran’s office is incredibly friendly and helpful. After my initial visit, they remembered personal details about me and squeezed me in for appts, so that I could take advantage of my insurance and get my teeth/gums healthy. When I thought I would have to reschedule an appt due to lack of babysitter, they said that I was welcome to bring my infant son in. They do everything they can to make you comfortable. The office offers complimentary parafin waxes, use of a massage chair, cookies, etc. Plus, my teeth already look a million times better. Highly recommended.

I highly recommend this place of business (they also have Fantastic Cookies)!

Dr. Baran has been my family’s trusted dentist for some time now, i hadn’t seen her in several years due to not living in the area/insurance changes. However i recently broke a tooth (watch out for popcorn kernels) and after not being able to get an appointment with any of the local clinics for at least a month I decided to call her up and explain the situation. She was able to squeeze me in for an evaluation the next day and then for treatment two days after that! Unlike some other dentists i’ve seen in the past i never felt like Dr. Baran was trying to up-sell me on treatments that i didn’t need. She laid out all my options in plain english, was receptive to my concerns and didn’t try to unnecessarily push me in the direction of the more expensive treatment options. She works fast and has a soothing, almost motherly bed side manner that will put your anxieties at ease. Her staff is very friendly and fun to talk to as well. The facilities are nice and comfortable (you can watch TV while you’re being worked on) and it seemed as though they were doing all they can to reduce the risk of the spread of covid. I will definitely be coming back for any dental work i might need in the future and would recommend you do the same.

Love everything about Dr. Baran’s office!  Everyone is so caring, helpful, and friendly. The office is very clean, comfortable, and inviting. They always make you feel at home. Aromatherapy allows me to relax, by the smell of fresh baked cookies in the waiting room and candle melts throughout  the office. It definitely masks the dental smell. I am thankful for everyone’s expertise and education to help me maintain a healthy smile. I highly recommend this office.

love Love LOVE Dr. Baran and her amazing staff… professional, easy to work with, great reception staff, helpful accounting staff, friendly, talented, fun (can a trip to the dentist really be fun??? YES!). My teeth are whiter, brighter, straighter, prettier and healthier because of Dr. Baran and all the wonderful people that work with her. Thanks so much!

I had my teeth cleaned today. The hygienist was extremely professional, polite, knowledgeable and made me feel very comfortable with my cleaning. She explained everything very well and made sure i understood what she was doing and why the entire visit. My exam with the dentist was excellent as well. She was very personable and took her time with me during the exam. I would highly recommend this dental office, especially for teeth cleaning. Five stars for sure!! Brian

Dolores Baran, DDS and Melanie, Dental Tech, were accommodating, pleasant and did adhere to strict COVID-19 precautions. There expertise and talents in dentistry are well above average! I feel very comfortable in their care. My six-month dental exam, including x-rays, periodontal check, cleaning and and fluoride treatment went well. I was in and out in about one hour! Thank You!

I moved to Michigan from Minnesota and wanted to find a professional who was up on the latest products, procedures, and services available. Dolores Baran was all of this and more. I have been a business owner most of my life and her entire staff works like a team to meet my needs in a very pleasant environment. I would highly recommend my family, friends, and clients to see Dr. Dolores Baran for all their dental needs.

Dr. Baran’s office is the best Dental office I have ever been to in my entire life! The staff is extremely professional and pleasant. There is a perfect blend of comfort from the furniture to the massage chair to the TVs in every room to the pain relief! No stone is left unturned to make sure patients like me are stress free and respected. It may seem unimportant, but if you’re a worrier and need distractions while the equipment is buzzing, it’s nice to know I can watch escapist reality TV during a root canal. Plus the quality of the dental work is top notch. My teeth have never been in better condition nor as sparkling white. And they don’t give you attitude if you need to come back for an adjustment. They really support working people and parents with Saturday appointments and even volunteered to watch my baby as I got my teeth cleaned! This allows me to make appointments whenever I want without having to worry about child care! I had to give hugs for that as it was such a relief! I’m so glad they are in Royal Oak and close to me. I highly recommend that anyone looking for a good Dentist or frustrated by their current one should give Dr. Baran a try! You’re sure to become a loyal patient too and won’t need to look any further.

Dr. Baran has good “chair side” manner . She explains the procedures to make sure you understand what’s happening. The staff are all friendly and professional. They are diligent in making sure you are comfortable. Even gave me a blanket when I was cold sitting in the chair for my procedure.

Upon initially visiting Doc Baran’s office, I was greeted with a smile (Katie). The entire staff treated me with caring & professionalism. After my 1st visit, I felt comfortable with Doc Baran & staff treating my family. I recommend Doc Baran to my friends & family. Thank you Doc Baran & staff for your professionalism & excellence provided to my family & I.

“I just had a molar removed in December and a review and teeth cleaning this past week. The extraction went well and was pain free. The doctor was clear and comforting in instructions and explaining each step of the procedure. My anxiety was lowered and I was less fearful with the process. The post check this week was good and the evaluation and cleaning went extremely well. Again, such professionalism and legitimate concern with my comfort and understanding of the procedures. The office staff was very attentive, polite and friendly. Will definately stay with this office in the future. I definately recommend this office to everyone.”

I had to have two fillings. I was taken right in and the work was done before I knew it! I usually get migraines when I went to my old dentist even to just get one filling. I’d be there for at least an hour and a half. These were the fastest fillings I’ve ever had, and no pain the next day! No migraine the next day! Awesome!

Carol Walker (Source: Google)


I must say Dr. Baran’s Dental Practice is the Perfect Place to go if you want Dental Treatment with Class. The Staff (Girls) are remarkable, Kind caring sweet professional and everyone is an asset to this practice! I have met and worked with everyone there and it has only been a pure pleasure, Silly isn’t it for a Dentist office! Dr. Shafka has helped me in so many ways I cannot put it into words. I Totally recommend anyone to pay them a visit, you will be happy you did!

The best dentist I’ve had in a long time, Dr. Baran really cares about her clients comfort and does top-notch work. I’ve been looking for a good dentist for a while, and I’m definitely happy that I’ve found this office! The staff is super friendly and the technology used for cleaning and other visits is top notch. It’s pretty awesome to be able to have your crown 3D printed on the spot, I always find that fascinating. Needless to say I’m definitely not looking anymore, I’ve found the good dentist I’ve been looking for! =)

Excellent work by Dr. Baran! She is a very talented, professional, and LOVELY dentist. She improved my smile a thousand percent, in addition to taking great care of the health of my teeth. Fabulous office; everyone is so nice and so helpful. From the moment you walk in, everyone is so polite and friendly and warm. Great practice, great environment. I highly recommend the practice not only for great dental healthcare, but for dental beauty and a dedicated, happy, very professional staff!

Start to Finish From start to finish this was as good as it gets. Although I hate going to the dentist more than anything, the staff here made it as pleasant as possible. Extraction and implants terrified me, but it needed to be done. I would recommend this team to everyone. As soon as you walk in you are welcomed by polite and friendly staff. Throughout the entire process your comfort and well being are constantly being monitored. I gave them five stars, only because you cannot give six. Joe Davis

Gail C. from San Francisco, CA (Source: Yelp)


“Dolores J. Baran, DDS and her Technical Staff provided skilled, expedient, friendly service. My less than two-hour appointment to replace an upper-tooth crown was wonderful! The crown is a masterpiece! With the help of top computerized equipment and Dr. Baran’s artistry and skill, and the technical experience of her staff (Emily and Kelly), my crown looks/feels great and adds nicely to my smile!”

Matthew R. from Royal Oak, MI (Source: Yelp)


Just got cavity filled using a laser procedure (no anesthesia). Amazing job! Felt comfortable the entire time; zero pain. Asked me if I was comfortable many times. Watched tv in my chair. They let me use a Massage chair while I waited. Gave me a Hot lemon scented towel to wash my face after the procedure. And my dentist was late to work by just 5 min so they gave me a Starbucks gift card. Love this dentist office and highly recommend!

I can’t even call this place my dentist office its more like a relaxing getaway. Fresh baked cookies and coffee in the waiting lobby… please and THANK YOU!!!! They even have a massage chair and this crazy wax hand dip. Ive never been so relaxed and the service is 100% top notch. Dolores Baran has seemingly pioneered a “better way” and created an amazing experience. HIGHLY RECOMMEND!

Marie Ferguson (Source: Google)


As good as a dentist visit can get! There were treats in the lobby, a massage chair for waiting, and free paraffin dips! They are very thorough and clearly understand what their patients go through and questions they have. They explain why they recommend something and how much it will cost.

Cheryl H. from Warren, MI (Source: Yelp)


I enjoyed my visit to the dentist for the first time! I was taken on time. The whole team was organized and everything moved along so my visit didn’t take all day. I received a permanent cap on my tooth in the same day, they can make them right there in the office so you don’t have to make a return visit. Very convenient! The practice has all the latest technology so you get the most up to date techniques available.

Dr. Razzak and Amanda were amazing. They made me feel very comfortable and made sure I was ok every step of the way with getting a crown. They were very personable and in fact we joked and laughed a good portion of the over 2 hours I was there. I’m so pleased with the experience that I’m going to switch Dentists.

Marcelle Walker (Source: Facebook)


I highly recommend anyone who wants to transform their smile to see Dr. Baran! I’ve been a “FastBraces” patient for a 1 year in a half now, and I am so pleased with my transformation. Dr. Baran is very professional, transparent, reasonable and kind to all of her patients. I can’t wait to get my braces off in a few short months. Thank you, Dr. Baran!!!! :)))

I was just visiting for a routine cleaning, and as it was my first time here the employees were very helpful and showed me around. There are tons of amenities that I was not expecting but loved! they have a massage chair, TVs on the dental chair for us to watch and even offered a paraffin wax for my hands! that coupled with the goodie back of toiletries to take home and I was hooked. Really great service and really great atmosphere.

My family has been going to Dr. Baran for years. I love this place so much that I decided to take my elderly mother there who needed extensive work because she neglected her teeth for years. They treated her with kit gloves and great care. They insured that both she and I understood what her treatments and after care would be. They even took care of me while I waited for my mom’s appointment to be finished by offering me a message chair, coffee, juice, and a fresh baked cookie. Appointment reminders are sent a week before and the day of so you never forget or can reschedule timely if needed. The entire staff are always friendly, gentle, and professional. Can’t find a better place than this one!

Last Saturday was the first visit to start my dental work. From the moment that I walked in I was greeted with a smile and made to feel very comfortable. The level of professionalism and expertise is very evident with Dr. Baran and the staff. Dr. Baran is a very engaging person, which has not been my experience with the other owner/dentists and this is certainly reflected in all of her staff.

Beth Huffman (Source: Google)


I first went to Dr. Baran a few years ago. I thought she was an amazing dentist, professional, gentle, and kind. I used to absolutely HATE going to the dentist. Dr. Baran has alleviated most (if not all) of my anxiety about dental work. People are always commenting on how beautiful my teeth are and asking me who’s your dentist. I would highly recommend her to anyone.

Jade Evink (Source: Google)


Dr. Baran is awesome. Hands down the best dentist I’ve been to. The staff is friendly and welcoming, and gladly discusses treatment plans to fit your needs. I never hoped to have a root canal done, but Doctor Baran made it a pain free and pleasant experience. Couldn’t be happier with my decision to choose her office to take care of me!

Claire OReilly (Source: Google)


This is like no other dentist office in the world . You are treated with so much kindness and understanding. The staff are incredibly clever and friendly. They treat you as though you are at a spar . With paraffin wax hand dips . Warm cookies . And goodie bags to leave with . Dr Barens … is head and shoulders above anyone in her field . I travel for an hour to go to this office . They are amazing. Worth the travel time indeed ❤️

The atmosphere of this place is amazing! The staff is very gracious and catering. I wasn’t sure if I was at the dentist office or the Spa. Very clean. Staff works together to provide an optimal experience for each customer. I went for a consultation and I ended up getting a consultation plus my routine cleaning plus the beginning process of applying my braces!!! I told 6 people already I hope the come and see you guys. ~Deanna Delores “

Being @ Doc. Baran’s office is like receiving her professional services within the comforts of my own home. Doc Baran & staff go outa their way to help me relax, put my feet up & surf the channels with the remote. The staff, Kayla & Stephanie are very friendly welcoming with a big beautiful smile every time I’m in their office. My teeth are strong, healthy & bling, bling white. I have referred my family & friends to Doc Baran because she is the best dentist on the planet! Thank you Doc Baran & staff – you’re excellently exceptional.
