To Our Patients of Cranbrook Dental Care,

After an exhaustive search, it gives me great pleasure to introduce you to the newest member of our dental team, Dr. Steven Hane.  Dr. Hane will be joining our practice immediately.

In my search for an associate dentist, I carefully considered the following criteria in order to assure quality, personalized care for our family of patients.  First and foremost, was the ability and commitment to provide the highest caliber dental care in the most gentle and enthusiastic manner available.  Secondly, our new associate dentist needed to have advanced training well beyond dental school and a willingness and eagerness to consistently learn and incorporate the latest dental techniques and procedures.  Lastly, our philosophies had to be similar so that I could assure our patients that they will receive the best possible care from each doctor.

In Dr. Hane, I have found just that person.  Born, raised and educated in DeWitt, Michigan, near Lansing, Dr. Hane is a 2000 graduate from my Alma Mater, the renowned University of Michigan School of Dentistry.  After receiving his DDS degree, Dr. Hane pursued advanced post graduate training and received additional national recognition by obtaining an A.E.G.D., an Advanced Education in General Dentistry.

Dr. Hane also served in the United States military, practicing dentistry for the Navy from 2000-2003.  He first worked stateside preparing sailors for active duty, and then saw active duty himself in the Middle East.  In fact, on 9/11/01, Lieutenant Hane was on an aircraft carrier, the John F. Kennedy, which quickly relocated to the Middle East to begin an assault.

After serving his country, Dr. Hane began a private practice in advanced general dentistry in the Metropolitan Detroit area.  He resides in Bloomfield Hills, with his lovely wife, Laura and their three beautiful children; Joey, age 7, Nicholas, age 4, and their latest addition, Molly, born in April.

Dr. Hane is adamant in his pursuit of continuing education, devoting numerous hours each year to courses in cosmetic and restorative dentistry, as well as other advanced procedures.  He maintains active memberships in the Academy of General Dentistry and the Dental Organization for Conscious Sedation.

The addition of Dr. Hane will allow us to expand our ability to serve you and accommodate your busy schedule.  This will also allow us to provide more early and late appointments, and reduce wait times between appointments.  We hope that you will benefit from these increased conveniences.

I am confident that you will find Dr. Hane to be a wonderful addition to our team.  I know Dr. Hane very well and know that he loves being a dentist and takes great pride in the care he provides. You may see him in our office soon for a restorative procedure or in our hygiene department.  You can continue to count on receiving thorough, personalized care from our entire team.  Thank you for entrusting us with your dental care.  We look forward to seeing you at your next visit!

I'm Laurie, and I've had the pleasure of working with Dr Banda's team since 2013. I've been a Registered Dental Hygienist for 12 years, graduating from Oakland Community College in 2003. I love and grew up in Royal Oak, and enjoy working in the Oakland County area. As a child I had a wonderful dentist who sparked my interest in Dentistry by making everything a fun, positive learning experience, which is always what I strive to bring to my patients. When I'm not working, I'm enjoying my husband of 8 years, our 2 labs, our 5 year old niece, and just being with family.
