Born in Colorado, Dr. Michele Strait moved closer to her family roots in Michigan at the age of twelve. She spent half a decade in orthodontic treatment with headgear and braces - which may explain her passion for good alignment but in a much more comfortable way. She attended the the University of Michigan undergraduate and School of Dentistry, graduating with honors. Following graduation, she began her career surrounding herself with mentors. Practicing as Michele Platson, she worked in a private dental offices in Chicago and then Austin with multiple dentists and dental specialists. Over the course of ten years, she practiced adjacent to many dental professionals with a range of philosophies and refined her own perspective. During her time in Texas, she has been captivated by food, wine, music, art, and culture. Michele has made the Austin area her home for the past 7 years and soaks up time in the warm weather with her fiancé and labrador. As a resident of Brentwood she loves visiting the local restaurants and shops on Burnet Road.
