Dr. Michael Halasz
Dr. Halasz has been living in the south Dayton area since the summer of 1982. After graduating from Centerville High School in the fall of 1983, he went to The Ohio State University for his undergraduate education, as well as dental school. After working as an associate dentist for six and a half years, he decided to open his own practice in October of 1998.
Dr. Halasz’s philosophy is simple…provide everyone only the highest quality dental care, treating everyone as if they were members of his own family. He and his staff regularly attend continuing education courses to stay up-to-date on all of the latest techniques and procedures.
Dr. Halasz and his wife, Teri, have 3 children, Rachel, Grant, and Lindsey. Dr. Halasz enjoys golfing and physical fitness. He has been known to occasionally perform stand-up comedy at the local comedy clubs. He is also a HUGE fan of Ohio State sports. Dr. Halasz is a past-president of the Dayton Dental Society. He remains very active, serving on several Councils and Committees at the Ohio Dental Association, as well as the American Dental Association.

I have been in Dentistry since 1982. My wonderful husband Jeff and I have 2 grown children, Emily and Jonathan. We have one grand baby, Miles, and he is ALL BOY! In our spare time, besides letting Miles keep us busy, we enjoy boating, fishing, riding 4-wheelers and spending time with family and friends.

While raising our 3 children, I worked in the medical field and then for Kettering City Schools for several years. I enjoy spending time with my family when we’re not all going in different directions!
