Meet Our Dentist

Dr. Mitch Thompson

Mitch is a 2011 graduate from Lake City High School. He attended Hillsdale College for two years and played football before transferring to Central Michigan University, where he earned his bachelor’s degree in biology. After CMU, he attended Midwestern University in Illinois to complete his Doctor of Medical Dentistry Degree.

Aside from an opportunity to practice where his family and friends live, Mitch said only one other thing drew him home. “The greatest 4th in the North just couldn’t keep me away,” he said with a chuckle.
