On Being a Dentist
“I am so blessed and lucky to work in the dental field. Each day I am able to be a positive part of so many lives, whether I’m helping a child with orthodontic care, or moving an adult out of dental pain, I’m providing treatment that improves their lives. I cannot imagine a more fulfilling profession.
I am grateful to the families who trust us with their dental care; it’s an honor to work with multiple generations of the same family, and feel that’s a testament to the level of care we deliver.
I love the friendships that have developed with so many of my patients, and appreciate the opportunity to be part of their lives. When they come for their visits and share the latest news about their life, I am let into their world.” – Dr. Michael Laszynski

In the Community
In addition to volunteering his time to provide dental to underprivileged patients in his own practice, Dr. Laszynski also volunteers at a local free clinic. He knows the important role oral health plays in overall body wellness, and is passionate about providing life-improving care to people in this community.
Originally from West Lafayette, Dr. Laszynski now lives in Rochester. He is close to his family, who understand that the dental field sometimes requires him to work long hours and provide emergency care outside of regular office hours. When he does have time, being with them is his priority, whether they’re having a quiet dinner at home or getting away for the weekend.
Dr. Laszynski likes to stay active. He enjoys working out, water sports, and most outdoor activities. He’s also a sports fan, cheering for Notre Dame, and for both the Colts and Peyton Manning.
