Dr. Michael Sabat
Dr. Sabat is proud to have provided a dental practice specializing exclusively in orthodontics for children and adults for over 30 years. His reputation for his commitment to excellence in orthodontics is well known in his hometown area of Northeast Ohio. He includes patients in their orthodontic treatment so that they can work to achieve the outcome they have been anticipating. The diagnosis and treatment planning of the comprehensive needs of patients—with an emphasis on form, functions, and esthetics—are his area of interest. This includes the use of high-tech, cutting edge appliances in the treatment of patients.
As a graduate from Case Western Reserve in Cleveland, Ohio, he received his pre-dental Bachelor of Science degree at Adelbert College. He then earned a Doctor of Dental Surgery (DDS) degree from Case Western Reserve, College of Dentistry. He graduated magna cum laude and was inducted into the premier national dental honor society, Omicron Kappa Upsilon. Dr. Sabat continued his post-doctoral residency program at Case Western Reserve College of Dentistry’s Department of Orthodontics. He pursued a specialization in orthodontics, earning Master of Science (MS) degree. According to the American Dental Association, only about six percent of dentists complete this advanced specialty education and may call themselves “orthodontists.” Dr. Sabat continues to pursue excellence in his specialty and consistently exceeds the requirements for continuing education each year by making it a priority to learn from the leaders in his profession. He is always researching and investigating ways to treat orthodontic patients in the most comprehensive way. He is also a Clinical Professor in the Orthodontic Department of his alma mater.
