Murray S. Baruch, DDS, has been improving smiles in Southeast Michigan for nearly 30 years. Dr. Baruch received his BA in Psychology from the University of Michigan and is a graduate of the University of Michigan Dental School.
Dr. Baruch has adopted a natural and non-invasive approach to his dentistry practice. In particular, he uses direct bonding in order to maintain as much of the natural tooth structure as possible. This eliminates the need for a cap or crown. Dr. Baruch’s philosophy is to treat patients in the manner he would wish to be treated.
Dr. Baruch is certified in oral appliance use for the treatment of sleep apnea disorders. The oral appliance brings a patient’s lower jaw forward in order to open the airway. Individuals who have difficulty dealing with CPAP therapy often find the oral appliances helpful in lessening their apnea occurrences.
Dr. Baruch is on the board of the American Dental Volunteers for Israel and has worked at the Trudi Birger Children’s Free Dental Clinic in Jerusalem, Israel for the past 25 years. He appreciates how the clinic serves as a bridge builder between people of differing backgrounds and faiths. Dr. Baruch also takes care of the dental needs of local Holocaust survivors through the Holocaust Survivors Oral Health Program.
Dr. Baruch is an individual of varied interests and passions. He is an avid reader and is a fan of jazz music. In fact, he plays African djembe drums with a percussion group in Detroit. He enjoys cycling, kickboxing and studying languages in his spare time. Dr. Baruch is involved in interfaith work and promotes relationships between Jews, Christians, and Muslims.
Dr. Baruch is a member of the Academy of General Dentistry, the American Dental Association, the Alpha Omega Dental Fraternity, the Michigan Dental Association, and the Oakland County Dental Association.
