Dr. David Strawbridge earned his Doctorate of Dental Surgery from the University of Michigan School of Dentistry, and is currently practicing out of MCDC’s Manistee dental center, though also providing services in MCDC’s Gaylord, Spalding, Traverse City and East Jordan offices.
Dr. Strawbridge currently maintains memberships with, or is active in, the following organizations:
- Michigan Dental Association
- Academy of General Denistry
- Pine Island Methodist Church
- Pine Island Committee for Pine Island Florida
Dr. Strawbridge’s core professional beliefs are centered around his heartfelt concern for the health and welfare of the community in general and more specifically those truly in need of dental care. Having had some negative dental experiences in early life, he really can relate to concerns of those which are seen today and feels all deserve and need personal attention and the best care that he can deliver.
Continuing education in dentistry is essential as materials and methods are constantly evolving. This is such a positive change that makes the practice of dentistry so much easier for our population.
Dr. Strawbridge holds, or has held, the following organizational positions:
- Charlevoix Michigan Planning Commission (past Chairman)
- Charlevoix Michigan Lions Club (past Secretary)
- Charlevoix Yacht Club (past Commodore)
- Current member of the Charlevoix United Methodist Church of Christ
Dr. Strawbridge practiced dentistry in Charlevoix, Michigan, from 1971 until retiring in 2011. After taking a few years off he returned to practice dentistry with MCDC on a part-time basis, presently in Manistee, as he feels he still has much to offer to the people in need of dental care. His short time out of dentistry allowed him to realize how much a purpose in life can mean to one and that helping others is so important.
In addition to a continued interest in dentistry he enjoys many water related activities including sailing, fishing, swimming and being on the water with his wife, Debra. Fly fishing holds special attention for him, as almost an “art form”.
