Thomas M. Fredal, D.D.S.

Dr. Thomas M. Fredal was raised in Shelby Township, Michigan and graduated from Eisenhower High School in 1978. He attended the University of Michigan where he received a Bachelor of Science degree in Biology in 1982. He earned his Doctor of Dental Surgery degree from the University of Michigan School of Dentistry in 1986.

In 1986, Dr. Fredal returned to his hometown of Utica to practice general dentistry with his father and uncle. The practice was founded by his father and established in 1953.  Dr. Fredal was fortunate to practice with these two brothers who generously shared a wealth of knowledge from their years of experience in the profession.  

Dr. Fredal embraces this history and “is dedicated to promoting a tradition of dental excellence while developing new relationships and maintaining some that cross several generations.”  The practice embraces the warmth and friendliness of a family business while implementing new technologies that dentistry has to offer.  

Laser dentistry is at the forefront of modern dental technology, and Dr. Fredal is a Waterlase certified provider.  Laser Dentistry allows many procedures traditionally uncomfortable for the patient to be performed painlessly, often without the need for anesthesia. “The comfort of patients and their overall dental experience in our office is paramount.  Our goal is to provide the best quality dentistry in a comfortable and caring environment.”  Laser dentistry is a major asset toward achieving this goal.  

Invisalign orthodontic treatment is effective, convenient and often preferred over traditional orthodontic treatment.  When appropriate, Invisalign orthodontic treatment is ideal for patients who do not want the inconvenience of  “wire braces,” but would like to improve their dental esthetics.  Dr. Fredal is an Invisalign Preferred provider.

Implant retained prostheses have become the standard of care, whether they are for single tooth restorations or comprehensive full mouth reconstruction cases.  Dr. Fredal has completed the 3i corporation’s Mini-Residency Implant Training and is qualified to provide a wide array of implant retained prosthetic options for his patients.

Esthetic Dentistry also has become the standard of care.  Patients today demand natural looking esthetic restorations. Dr. Fredal can provide for his patients any and all available esthetic treatment options ranging from simple natural colored composite restorations to full case “Lumineer” makeovers.

Dr. Fredal practices dentistry with the modern comforts of his office in Utica, Michigan, but he has traveled to countries much less fortunate.  He has traveled through South Africa, Zimbabwe, ultimately reaching the small African village of Zimba, Zambia with his wife and two children to provide care for those in need.   His most recent mission trip in the summer of 2015 was to rural Haiti, again in order to care for the underprivileged.  


Dr. Fredal is a member of the American Dental Association, Michigan Dental Association and Macomb Dental Society.  His peers voted him as a Top Dentist- Insite Magazine.
