Dr. Michael J. Leach is the sole practitioner of his Alpharetta, GA and Canton, GA pediatric dentist offices. He grew up in Glen Dale, West Virginia where he received his Doctorate of Dental Surgery from West Virginia University Dental School and completed an additional three-year residency in Pediatric Dentistry at the Children’s Hospital of Pittsburgh.
During his residency, Dr. Leach gained expertise in treating patients with a conservative treatment approach. Additionally, he learned how to provide expert care for special needs individuals to help set them up for oral success. His training at the Children’s Hospital of Pittsburgh has led him to been able to offer services tailored to any need that a family may have.
He makes it his goal to build relationships based on trust with all patients and their families; this is why he is a sole practitioner. He takes extra time to learn about his patients and what is going on in their lives. Watching his patients grow up and flourish is one of the greatest rewards of his practice. When you visit his pediatric dentist office in North Fulton, you
will be treated like family. Every time your child visits the office, they will see the same team members, the environment will become familiar, and Dr. Leach will be the only dentist they see until they age out.
Before any treatment is provided, he will consult with the parent/guardian and ensure that all questions are answered and that the parent is comfortable with the proposed treatment. Dr. Michael Leach takes a conservative approach to treatment and will only recommend a procedure be performed if it is absolutely necessary, so you can rest assured that your child is receiving the best care possible.
In addition to the personalized, caring service he provides in office, Dr. Leach has been able to form a bond with our community and become a cornerstone in North Fulton. Dr. Leach and his team complete several community outreach events during the year benefiting our local schools and daycare centers, charitable organizations such as Foster Care Support System and North Fulton Community Charities, and the Ronald McDonald House.
It is a true family affair when it comes to Michael J. Leach D.D.S. Pediatric Dentistry.

Since then, they have raised five incredible children: Alex, Johnathan, Thomas, Benjamin, and Mia. At any given time throughout the year, you will see one of their smiling faces at our practice. Spending quality time with family is one of Dr. Leach’s core beliefs so when he is not serving our awesome patients you will find him spending quality time with his family on the lake or at the beach.
