Milan Sata, DDS
Dr. Milan Sata grew up in Dearborn Heights and graduated from St. Agatha High School in Redford, MI. He graduated from the University of Michigan in 1991 with a bachelor’s degree in economics and furthered his education, receiving his doctorate in 1995 from the University of Michigan, School of Dentistry.
Once he completed dental school, Dr. Sata worked for 4 years as an associate in his family’s practice before purchasing Dr. Brown and Dr. Weber’s practice in Grand Blanc, MI. He has been practicing dentistry in the Grand Blanc community for over 17 years and considers it an honor.
Dr. Sata will tell you that he has been making people smile since 1969. It is no coincidence that it was the year he was born. He believes in bringing that same sense of humor into his practice to help his patients feel at ease. Dr. Sata has a strong sense of community, has sponsored many local athletic clubs, and supports many children’s causes. He was also involved with a program that offered a free month of dental care for military personnel from Selfridge Air National Guard Base. This moved him and his team to extend the program for 3 months to include military individuals and veterans. Dr. Sata continues to offer discounted dental care to military individuals and veterans, as well as free exams and X-rays to active military personnel. He enjoys sporting events, music, and spending time with his friends and family, especially his three nieces, Milani, Zamina, and Inika.
