About Our Practice

Dr. Kathleen P. Vani is a lifelong resident of Michigan. She graduated from the University of Detroit School of Dentistry in June 1990. After her graduation from dental school she taught at the University of Detroit Mercy for three years. Dr. Vani has been practicing in Shelby Township, at the same location, for the past 22 years. Dr. Vani is a member of the Michigan Dental Association, American Dental Association and Macomb Dental Society.

Dr. Kathleen P. Vani's dental practice is very state-of-the-art. She is one of the very few dentists in the area to use the BIOLASE® laser for dental treatment. In her practice x-rays are taken via a digital system, which has a much lower radiation amount than standard dental x-rays. Dr. Vani specializes in family dentistry with an emphasis on cosmetic and minimally invasive dental treatments. In order to keep invasive dental treatment to a minimum, we utilize the Kavo DIAGNOdent laser to identify small areas of decay before they become large areas of decay. These small areas of decay are not normally visible during a visual exam. The hygiene department uses an ultrasonic scaler for dental cleanings. This allows for a more thorough cleaning and more patient comfort than using just hand scalers.

The staff at Dr. Vani's office is very knowledgeable and they have been faithful employees for a number of years. You can rest assured that you will not see a new face each time you come to the office for treatment.

Dr. Vani provides laser dental treatment, whitening (bleaching) services, cosmetic dentistry, periodontal treatment, prosthetic (partials and dentures) services, and implant restorations.

New patients can take advantage of downloading their registration and medical history form(s) from the website to complete at their leisure prior to their first appointment. This will save time at the first appointment.

Dr. Vani participates with the following dental insurance plans: Delta Dental, Blue Cross and Blue Shield, Met Life. She will also accept any traditional dental insurance plans. If you are unsure if her office will accept your dental plan, all you need to do is call the office and her front desk staff will be happy to assist you. For those patients that do not have dental insurance, Dr. Vani also participates with CareCredit for dental financing.
