Who is Jesse Kane?

Dr. Kane was born and raised in Ann Arbor, Michigan. He attended Kalamazoo College where he majored in Biochemistry. From there, he earned his Doctor of Dental Surgery (DDS) degree at the University of Michigan School of Dentistry in Ann Arbor. During dental school, he became interested in the surgical, restorative and esthetic components of oral rehabilitation. The desire to properly manage complex dental cases involving advanced esthetics and implant therapy led him back to the University of Michigan to complete specialty training in prosthodontics. Dr. Kane owns and maintains a full time private practice limited to prosthodontics in Ann Arbor, MI where he works alongside the previous owner and now dear friend and colleague, Dr. Thomas Bloem.

Dr. Kane sums up his treatment philosophy: “My goal is to help patients achieve and restore the esthetics, function and comfort, that make up their dream smile. I work with my patients to realize and meet their goals, no matter the situation. Dental problems can be overwhelming, and I want each patient to feel like I’m on their team. I am always available to listen and respond to any questions regarding treatment. I feel that an informed patient is better able to make decisions regarding their treatment plan. For this reason, I will go the extra mile in presenting and explaining the treatment options.
