Get To Know Dr. Leach
Dr. Michael J. Leach has been in practice for over 25 years and offers a conservative approach to treatment for the communities of Alpharetta, Roswell, Milton, and Cumming. Follow along through the series as we get to know Dr. Leach more in-depth.
Learn why he chose to become a pediatric dentist and sole practitioner, what schooling and training he completed in order to become a board certified pediatric dentist, what the most rewarding part of working with kids is, where he is from, what he likes to do in his free time, and what the culture of a private practice pediatric dental office is.
“I wanted to be in a situation where I could get to know my patients, the parents, and for them to feel like a part of my family and that I am a part of their life. That is why I chose to be a sole practitioner instead of working for a large group.”
“After dental school, I decided that I did want to specialize in pediatric dentistry, so I did a three-year residency program at the Children’s Hospital of Pittsburgh. I spent those three extra years learning about growth and development, children’s psychology, plus how to treat kids every day, five days a week.”

“The American Dental Association and American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry recommend taking your child to a pediatric dentist. This is largely attributed to the fact that pediatric dentists receive an additional 2-3 years of specialized training following the receipt of their Doctorate degree.”
“Children have 20 primary teeth, which are often referred to as “baby teeth.” At about age 6, permanent teeth begin to push through the gums, and primary teeth become loose and fall out.”
“Baby teeth, or “Primary teeth” may be small, but they’re extremely important for your child’s oral health and development. This first set of teeth begin to develop beneath the gums during the second trimester of pregnancy”
