Oakland Primary Health Services Expands with New Dental Services
Quality Healthcare and Low Cost Insurance Plans Benefit Low-Income Citizens
One of Oakland County’s most prominent and well-respected dentists has joined forces with Oakland Primary Health Services (OPHS) to offer quality dental care to the under-insured population. OPHS Chief Executive Officer Steven Grant has recruited a second generation dentist from Pontiac, Dr. Bruce Turpin to be part of the agency’s growing team. Dr. Turpin is excited to be a part of the growing team of health professionals at OPHS as he continues the family legacy. His late father, Dr. Robert Turpin opened the practice 72 years ago. It is a full-service General Denistry practice specializing in full oral exams, x-rays, cleaning, fillings, whitening, bridges, crowns, inlays ,extractions, and some cosmetic dentistry. OPHS is not limited to Oakland County. Families who reside anywhere in the entire Metro Detroit and Tri-County areas are welcome to take advantage of the OPHS dental discounts.
“We have been in our same location here at 160 Palmer Street in Pontiac for 35 years, and our patients now span four generations of patient families. The relationships that we have with our families is special. We are serving them with the highest quality of care, regardless of their financial status” says Dr. Turpin. His wife Carroll has managed the practice for the past 25 years, and office records indicate that upwards of 10,000 patients have been treated over the lifetime of the practice. The first patient was treated in 1951.
Dr. Turpin provides a sliding fee for OPHS patients who may not have dental insurance. Payment plans are also available. “We don’t want people to think they can’t afford to visit the dentist. Oral hygiene has a profound effect on the entire body, and we work hard to treat the whole person with our holistic approach to dental care”
Dr. Turpin is proud of his close connection with the community. He has donated services to the elderly in nursing homes, and is known to open his office during off-hours for emergencies. He points out that he was close to retirement, but decided that he really wasn’t ready to sell his practice. He says that his decision to partner with OPHS is allowing him to expand without compromise. “I can’t reconcile with selling out to some entity whose main motivation is profit rather than serving the community”.
