Meet The Team


Dr. Christopher J Dollar

Dr. Christopher J. Dollar was born in Metro Detroit. He spent his early years in Huntington Woods before moving to Troy. He earned a Biochemistry degree from Central Michigan University in 1995, and received his doctorate from the University of Detroit Mercy in 2007. After graduating, Dr. Dollar was an Associate at multiple group practices in Clinton Township, Shelby and Clarkston. While an Associate, Dr. Dollar envisioned what “brand” of dentistry he would like to practice. Fortunately, he found Berkley’s Dr. Roger Black DDS and developed a strong working relationship with him.

Dr. Dollar’s brand of dentistry focuses on trust and family. He is committed to the team, and sees his team as an extension of his own family. He focuses on the strengths of his team, and believes time spent together should involve talking, listening and laughing.

Dr Dollar is an advocate of continuing education, for both himself and his team. He is an active member in several organizations, including, Omicron Kappa Upsilon, American Dental Association, Michigan Dental Association, Academy of General Dentistry, Macomb-Oakland Dental Association, United States Dental Institute and the Berkley Chamber of Commerce.

Dr. Dollar has been married for 15 years and has two boys. In his free time he enjoys being with friends, family and spending time outdoors. He has become an avid runner, participating in multiple charity events.

Things you don’t know about Dr. Dollar:

1. His nickname is “Bill” (as in “Dollar Bill”)
2. He loves Halloween and enjoys making (and wearing!) great costumes
3. He could have his own “Dirty Jobs” TV show, based on his previous employment experience - just ask him
4. He owns a Harley Davidson motorcycle, but doesn’t ride it enough
5. He hates reading maps/directions, but has no problem asking for directions

My husband is a Systems Engineer and we have been married for 26 years.  We enjoy traveling (especially cruises) and raising many cat "kids" through the years.  I personally enjoy gardening, reading and a variety of crafting projects.

 The rewarding experiences of my career have been developing wonderful relationships with the patients.  My goal has always been to educate them on the important issue of good dental health and keeping their teeth for a lifetime.
