About Dr. Sanker

Dr. Christopher Sanker was born in the suburbs of Detroit, Michigan. After completing college, Dr. Sanker decided to take a year off to explore Ecuador and work in a dental clinic. His mom had advised him to look into dentistry, and he was inspired by both her encouragement and by the advice that was given to him by a friend’s father, who was a dentist. After realizing he had an interest in the dental field, he chose to go to dental school. It wasn’t until he completed a 1-year general practice residency that he realized he was more interested in surgery. He enjoyed spending time with the people in the oral and maxillofacial surgery program and liked that he was able to get a wide scope of training and experience, which always kept things interesting.

Dr. Sanker loves working at Michigan Oral Surgeons because it’s a fun practice and allows him to help a wide range of people. For Dr. Sanker, oral surgery is like solving a puzzle, and it’s extremely satisfying when he can find the solution and help a patient in need. Surgery allows him to actively and continuously improve the lives of his patients.

Education and Residency

Dr. Sanker attended Kalamazoo College for his undergraduate career, where he graduated in 2003 with a bachelor’s degree in biology. Following his year off in Ecuador at a dental clinic, Dr. Sanker chose the University of Michigan for dental school. It was here that he met and formed a lasting friendship with Dr. Lopez.

After earning his Doctorate of Dental Surgery (DDS) from dental school, Dr. Sanker was fortunate enough to enter a program that allowed him to complete an oral and maxillofacial residency and medical school at the same time. When he completed both, he was honored to join our oral and maxillofacial team.
