Logan Clements, DDS

A Michigan native, Dr. Clements grew up in Swartz Creek and attended an accelerated 7-year dental program at the University of Detroit Mercy where he graduated as a member of the Dean’s Circle with a degree in biology followed by graduating Summa Cum Laude with his Doctorate in Dental Surgery.

A member of the American Dental Association and Michigan Dental Association, Dr. Clements decided to become a dentist because he wanted to have a positive impact on others by helping them achieve the confidence that comes with a beautiful, healthy smile.

When he isn’t helping his patients, you can find Dr. Clements upland bird hunting for Ruffed Grouse and American Woodcock with his beloved hunting dog, Hudson. He also enjoys fly fishing in Michigan's rivers and streams, playing ice hockey, boating in the summer, and spending time with his family.

Dr. Clements loves getting to know his patients and connecting with them on a personal level. He strives for perfection in dentistry and treats all of his patients the way he would want to be treated!
