"I graduated from UMKC Dental School in 1973. After two years in the Army I started a private dental practice in Joplin, MO. I have experienced a number of interesting situations in my career but the most vivid was the Joplin tornado of 2011. My office along with 23 other dental offices were completely destroyed. We have rebuilt and I stil enjoy dentistry as much as I ever did even after 46 years. I have a wonderful dental team that provides multiple dental procedures for our dental patients. NeoDiamond's have been a part of all of our procedures for a number of years. I find them to be reliable and predictable. I use only diamonds in all of my procedures from operative to crown and bridge. Our philosophy is to help patients be successful in their long term dental health, ideally for the rest of their lives. Thanks, Dr. Michael E. Fitterling"
