Dr. Janet Binkowski has been part of the dental community for 20 plus years. She started as a receptionist and assistant in 1990 at dental practice in Sterling Heights while attending Regina High School. She found a passion for dentistry and decided to pursue her degree to help people in pain and to improve their smile.
In 1998, Dr. Binkowski (then known as Dr. Janet Larkin) received her Bachelors of Science (Biology) and Doctorate of Dental Surgery from the University of Detroit Mercy School of Dentistry’s accelerated program. Since then, she has held a long-term Associate Dentist position in Macomb County developing her dental techniques and friendly chair side manner. In 2017, Dr. Binkowski acquired Clarkston Oaks Family Dentistry from Dr. Julie Lezotte to continue to provide high quality dental care to the Oakland Community.
Dr. Binkowski and her staff at Clarkston Oaks Family Dentistry strive to provide a welcoming, relaxed environment for their patients to receive dental care. She and her staff utilize state of the art equipment and keep up with emerging technology and materials so they can continue to provide a high level of dental treatment for their patients. Patients can view digital images (X-rays/photos) of their dental issues so they can be an informed and active participant in the treatment planning process. To continually provide high quality care, Dr. Binkowski attends a variety of continuing education courses that encompasses a wide range of topics in the dental field.
Clarkston Oaks Family Dentistry participates annually in the Marine Corps Toys for Tots collection drive to help children in our community during the holidays. The office also participates in a canned food drive at Thanksgiving and collects gently used coats during the holiday season.
Dr. Binkowski lives with her husband, Brian, and their son Thomas in Macomb Township. As a family, they enjoy going on road trips, exploring historical sites, going to the beach, biking and scuba diving along with watching the Detroit Tigers, Lions and Red Wings.
Dr. Binkowski is an active member of the American Dental Association, Michigan Dental Association, Oakland County Dental Society, Macomb County Dental Society, and Academy of General Dentistry.
