Dr. Patrick DiDonato, DDS
Originally born and raised in Ann Arbor, Michigan, Dr. Patrick DiDonato is excited to return and join the Ann Arbor Smiles team. Dentistry was a natural choice when he realized it combined his detailed craftsmanship, science, and his compassion for others.
He is a graduate of the University of Michigan School of Dentistry where he was proud to be the Co-Chairman of Victors for Veterans – an innovative program to provide free, comprehensive dentistry to veterans living below twice the poverty level in northern Michigan. One of his greatest role models is his late grandfather who was a navigator in World War II. Patrick was looking for an opportunity to give back his time in service of others and has multiple veterans in his family, so Victors for Veterans was a natural fit.
Dr. Patrick enjoys being able to help patients regain their oral function, health, and a confident smile. Within dentistry he takes particular interest in restorative dentistry, endodontics, oral surgery, and integrating the latest dental technology to provide his patients with the proper care they need, want, and deserve. He sees dentistry as an extension of his Christian faith to treat patients as he would want to be treated.
Prior to dental school, he graduated summa cum laude from Adrian College in 2013 with a B.A. in Biology, and a minor in Chemistry.
Inspired by St. Mother Teresa, his dental motto is: Do small things with great smiles! In his spare time, Dr. Patrick enjoys exercising, carpentry, making wine, archery, and spending time with his large family.
He is a member of the ADA (American Dental Association), MDA (Michigan Dental Association), and AGD (Academy of General Dentistry).
