Dennis M. Santini, DDS
Dr. Dennis Santini received his Doctorate of Dental Surgery degree from the University of Michigan in 1979. He is a 1972 graduate of Iron Mountain High School, continuing on to Central Michigan University to study and prepare for admittance to dental school. Immediately upon graduation from the University of Michigan, he returned to his hometown area to begin his practice.
While in dental school, he married his high school sweetheart, Janie, and they have since been blessed with three wonderful children and four grandchildren. Their eldest daughter, Angela, also a University of Michigan Dental School graduate, is now a dentist at the Veterans Administration Hospital in Iron Mountain. She is married to Dr. Jason Hall, an orthodontist in our community, and they have four children. Dennis and Janie’s second daughter, Kristina, is also a U of M Dental School graduate and she has joined Dr. Santini as an associate dentist in his practice. She and her husband Wayne also have three children. Finally, Dennis and Janie’s third child, Louis, is currently a practicing dentist in the Chicago area. Dr. Santini’s love for dentistry has ultimately inspired all three of his children to follow in his footsteps.
Dr. Santini has been passionate in his quest to provide the finest care available in serving his patients. This journey has led him to such prestigious centers of continuing education as the L.D. Pankey Institute, The Dawson Center for Advanced Dental Study, Dr. Cliff Ruddle’s Center for Endodontic Excellence and the Seattle Study Club. These learning centers of advanced dental training have been extremely important in helping Dr. Santini provide the most highly esthetic, functional and predictable dentistry available anywhere.
Dr. Santini is a proud member of the American Dental Association, Michigan Dental Association, Academy of General Dentistry, American Equilibration Society, L.D.

Dr. Santini has been very involved in his community, serving as President of the Iron Mountain-Kingsford Kiwanis Club, Trustee of the Iron Mountain School Board and was very involved in the highly successful Izzo-Mariucci Golf Classic that raised 3.5 million dollars over its ten-year span. In his free time, he enjoys spending time with his family and grandchildren, traveling, outdoor activities, working at this cabin, and training his beloved Springer Spaniels. His favorite hobby is dentistry and he looks forward to pursing his passion for many years to come.
