Our current office location at 1550 Kingsway Court, in Trenton, Michigan opened in the summer of 2004. At present, our office is one of the most technologically advanced offices in the Metro Detroit area, incorporating many state-of-the-art features. The office was custom-designed with patient comfort, convenience and education in mind.
Upon entering the office, you will immediately notice the warm tones and relaxing atmosphere, all set in a high-tech environment. One of the most exciting features of the new office is the use of a computerized dental information management system. This allows us to store all patient information, including X-rays, treatment services, patient images and appointment information. Additionally, all X-rays are now digital and are taken without film. This prevents image degradation and allows us to easily send images to specialists. The digital X-rays can also be easily adjusted or enhanced to allow for unparalleled accuracy in diagnosis. Most importantly, digital X-rays require only a fraction of the radiation required for traditional film.
At Sonne Family Dental, we feel that the patient should be as informed as possible regarding their dental health and available treatment options. For this reason, each operatory is equipped with a flat-panel monitor and computer, in addition to a TV monitor and DVD player positioned for comfortable patient viewing. Using this system, patients can easily see images or educational material. In addition, patients can relax and view movies through our state-of-the-art video glasses!
We also feel that cleanliness and patient safety is paramount. For this reason, we designed a state-of-the-art sterilization center, and utilize the Oso-pure water purification system to ensure patient safety.
Dr. Marvin Sonne
Marvin grew up in Oak Park, Michigan where he graduated Oak Park High School (Phi Beta Kappa) in 1965. After graduation from Wayne State University with a B.S. in Biology (with distinction) in 1969, Marvin entered the University of Michigan Dental School. He married his high school sweetheart, Fran, in 1970 following his first year of dental school. Upon graduation in 1973 (elected to OKU National Honor Society--achieving life membership in 2009), Marvin served two years as a Lt. in the US Navy at Camp Pendleton, Cal where he gained invaluable experience reinforcing his desire to practice general dentistry once he completed his active duty.
Because of Marvin's desire to be close to his family, he returned to Michigan to begin his dental career. After 3 1/2 years at an office in Taylor, Michigan, Marvin opened his own office in 1979 with the help of Nancy Burr (then dental assistant and now Office Manager) in the city of Woodhaven, Michigan. Nancy and Dr. Sonne began their association together in 1977 and have been together for over 32 years as she now manages Sonne Family Dental.
Fran and Marvin have three children. Amy, graduate d from Michigan State University in 1997 with a degree in Theater & Dance and then received a Master's Degree in Dance & Dance Education from NYU in 2002. Amy married Michael Brown in 2004 and in December 2006 gave birth to Ashleigh Ryann presenting Fran & Marvin their 1st grandchild. Amy, Mike, & Ashleigh reside in Merrick, NY (Long Island) where Mike is a Project Manager with Honeywell. Lisa, is completing her Bachelor's Degree in Elementary Education at the University of South Carolina. She married Travis Wheeler in 2006 and in December 2008 gave birth to Cameron Drake presenting Fran & Marvin their 2nd grandchild. Lisa, Travis, & Cameron reside in Columbia, SC where Travis is an anti-trust attorney. Jeffrey, is completing his education in Journalism at the University of Michigan-Dearborn. As well, Jeff writes a sports column for the Detroit Examiner in his spare time. He resides in Farmington Hills with Fran & Marvin.
Paralleling Marvin's professional career is his devoted service to organized dentistry. Alpha Omega has consumed much of Marvin's time. He has served many offices locally and internationally from 1969 through today. This year Marvin is the Detroit Chapter Vice President and in 2010 will serve as the Detroit President (his 2nd term with the 1st in 1986).
Marvin is a member of the American Dental Association, Michigan Dental Association (6 years on the Scientific Committee and 6 years on the Annual Session Committee), Detroit District Dental Society (over 15 years on the Education Committee), Academy of General Dentistry, Chicago Dental Society, Russell W Bunting Periodontal Society, and The Francis B Vedder Crown & Bridge Prosthodontic Society in which Marvin has served many offices including President in 2008. Marvin taught clinical dentistry at the University of Detroit in 1979-80.
In addition, Marvin enjoys golf, bridge, working out, travel, and his current addicting hobby of fantasy baseball. He is an avid Michigan Wolverine sports fan and a major supporter of our professional Detroit sports teams with the Detroit Tigers being his favorite. In 1993, Marvin attended the Detroit Tigers Fantasy Baseball week in Lakeland, FL. Marvin has served on his Temple Israel Couple's Club and is a current member of the Temple's Usher Corps. He has been a member of the Woodhaven-Brownstown Rotary Club for over 15 years.
Marvin is as excited today about dentistry as he was when he graduated in 1973. The changes and advancements in the dental profession have significantly advanced the capability to provide people with not only excellent dental health but also to make a difference in their lives. People are living longer so the need for better dental health is more important than ever. The connection between dental health and overall health is one of the main research topics today and it is Marvin's belief that it is incumbent upon all in the dental profession to help people become as healthy as possible. That is the goal and mission of everyone at Sonne Family Dental as well as making sure that the close family feeling between everyone is maintained.
