Jim Fraser DDS, MS

Dr. Fraser is a southeast Michigan native, born and raised in Port Huron. He grew up an avid hockey player and was fortunate enough to represent numerous US National Teams. He played four years of varsity NCAA Division I hockey at Harvard and was elected team captain his senior season.

Dentistry has always been a significant part of his life as both his father and older sister are practicing general dentists. His mother is a dental hygienist and the office manager for their family practice.

After one year playing professional hockey, Dr. Fraser decided to pursue a career in dentistry where he attended the University of Michigan School of Dentistry. After dental school, he completed three years of orthodontic specialty training at the University at Buffalo where he researched the anatomical limits of tooth movement, utilizing 3-D imaging technology to improve efficiency and treatment success in orthodontics.

In his spare time, he enjoys running marathons, playing ice hockey, water and snow skiing, and reading. Dr. Fraser lives locally with his wife, Alyssa, a Pediatric Nurse Practitioner, and their sons, James and Oliver. They truly love the Plymouth/Canton community!

Community Involvement

One of our core values involves supporting the community that supports us. Our office is grateful to service the families of our community and proudly donates resources back through sponsorships, volunteer work, and philanthropic initiatives.

Financial Information

Braces and Invisalign can be more affordable than you may think. We understand there are many financial commitments already existing for families before orthodontic treatment. Our financial coordinators will work with you to discuss insurance benefits, 0% financing, flexible spending accounts (FSA), health savings accounts (HSA), and flexible payment plans.

Remember that this is an investment in your smile or your child’s smile. Studies have shown that a beautiful smile can increase self-confidence and think about it, it’s the first thing you notice when you meet someone!

Your investment in braces or Invisalign will vary depending on the treatment plan for each patient. We offer flexible payment options because we believe every child should have the opportunity to have an excellent smile.
