Meet Our Doctors

Dr. Mapes

Dr. Mapes was born and raised in Wixom, Michigan. She knew at a young age that she was going to be a dentist because of her passion for art, science, and oral health. Dr. Mapes loves that she is able to give back to others by helping to create a healthy and happy smile! She earned her bachelor’s degree from Albion College in Michigan and went on to obtain a master’s degree from Barry University in Hollywood, Florida. She was happy to return to her home state to earn her Doctorate of Dental Surgery from the University of Detroit Mercy.

Dr. Sadasivan is originally from Farmington Hills, Michigan. She attended the University of Michigan where she earned her Bachelor of Science degree, after which she spent a year of service with AmeriCorps in Detroit.
