About Dr. Mike
Dr. Michael Kubiniec, “Dr. Mike,” graduated from Batavia High School in 1979, and Hobart College in 1983 with a B.S. in Biology. In 1987 he graduated with Thesis Honors from the University of Buffalo School of Dental Medicine. He joined his father, Conrad, who had run a busy dental practice since 1963. They soon expanded the facility at 180 Washington Avenue to include six treatment rooms and a huge fish tank.
Every year Doctors Conrad and Michael attended the Greater Niagara Frontier Dental Convention to catch up on the latest techniques and materials. “My dad always attended many classes each year. He taught me that you have to keep up with the latest dental technologies and health issues. It is how we provide quality dentistry without getting ‘burned out.’”
In 1991, Dr. Mike joined the Western New York implant study club, and then in 2012, he started attending the monthly Brodine Prosthodontic Seminars Study Club in nearby Rochester, NY. He started the advanced dental training program at The Dawson Academy in 1995, where he learned how to design long-lasting dental restorations to precisely fit the patient’s bite and protect jaw joints. In 2013, Dr. Mike finished the Garg Dental Implant Continuum. Over the years, Dr. Mike has attended concentrated classes on topics such as temporomandibular joints, modern gum disease treatment, root canals, dentures that fit, advanced CEREC training, Galileos x-ray training, and many one-day courses.
Since 2001, Dr. Mike has upgraded the office with computers, all-digital x-rays, CEREC one-visit crowns, and the Galileos 3D imaging system. Our new high technology systems allow Dr. Mike to place and restore implants right in our office, without having to go to an outside specialist or dental laboratory.
Dr. Mike lives in Batavia with his wife Sharon, who manages the office. Sharon is a member of the American Association of Dental Practice Managers. They have a son at Canisius studying pre-dental topics, a son at RIT studying computer programming, and their oldest is a Navy Reactors Officer in Washington, D.C.. When they are not at the office, you can find Dr. Mike and Sharon volunteering with the Rotary Club of Batavia, grilling steaks in the backyard, boating, or enjoying live theater productions here and in New York.
