About Dr. Fasi
Though he wasn’t born in Michigan, Dr. Anthony Fasi has lived here since he was six years old. Having grown up in Traverse City, Dr. Fasi loves that he now gets a chance to treat patients from this community and finds he can relate to everyone, regardless of their background. Growing up, Dr. Fasi had dreams of becoming a science teacher. It wasn’t until he met someone who was pursuing dental school and learned more about it that he realized he was interested in dentistry. He volunteered at an oral surgeon’s office and discovered his love for the specialty.
Oral surgery appealed to Dr. Fasi because of the unique surgical aspect that allowed him to do immediate reconstructions and other treatments on patients. He was intrigued by the idea that he could earn a degree in a field that allowed him to have an immediate and positive effect on patients’ lives. He loves working in a practice where he can set his own goals and work every day towards achieving them with multiple patients. Being able to change someone’s function — and even their whole life — with planning, forethought, and his surgical skills is what keeps Dr. Fasi loving his job.
Education & Residency
Dr. Fasi completed his undergraduate degree at Michigan State University in 2004, where he majored in Human Biology. After discovering his interest in dentistry during college, Dr. Fasi chose to attend dental school at the University of Michigan. After earning his dental degree, Dr. Fasi decided to stay put and complete his Oral and Maxillofacial residency at the University of Michigan as well. When he was a fourth-year resident, he met Dr. Lopez, who was then the chief. He spent time volunteering and eventually caught Dr. Lopez’s attention.
In his spare time, Dr. Fasi loves to travel. His family is originally from Malta, and he loves returning to Europe to see relatives and explore some of his favorite spots. He also enjoys photography, and he is always looking for new places to capture.
