Dr. Michael L. Trautman
"I love all aspects of dentistry, but especially enjoy the opportunity to make a difference in my patient's appearance through cosmetic dentistry and replacement of missing teeth. From conservative veneers to porcelain crowns and bridges, the materials we have available today are amazingly durable and natural looking."
"And when missing teeth need to be replaced, we have many options. From implants to dentures, from bridges to partials, these constantly developing techniques keep dentistry interesting and exciting for me. Lasers and digital impressions have revolutionized crown and bridge technology, while our implant techniques and materials have evolved tremendously. I love the challenges of complex cases as well as the pleasures of helping beautiful smiles stay healthy."
Dr. Trautman and his wife Jolie have lived in Champaign / Urbana all of their lives. Dr. Trautman trained as a dental laboratory technician in the Air Force and worked as a technician making crowns, bridges and dentures for six years prior to dental school. During that time he received a bachelors degree from the University of Illinois and then attended the Southern Illinois School of Dental Medicine, graduating with honors in 1979.
Dr. Trautman and Jolie enjoy traveling and sailing their sailboat, Island Princess. Dr. Trautman also is a ham radio enthusiast (call sign K9MLT) and flys R/C aircraft. Jolie is a dental hygienist in our office and she is a talented rubber stamper and crafter. Both have strong ties to family and friends in our community.

Thank you for your interest and welcome to our practice!
Allow me to give you a bit of information about my family: My wife, Christy, and I married in 1993 and we have three beautiful teenage daughters as they bring great joy to our lives! Our girls are very active in Color Guard, Cross Country, Jazz Band, Tumbling and Track. I graduated from the University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign in 1989 with a degree in Biology and finished my dental training at the University of Illinois at Chicago in 1993. My interests include spending time with my family and riding my motorcycle. My wife is currently enrolled in a nursing program so we have many people studying at our house.
My approach to your dental care starts with listening to your needs and concerns. Following a complete and thorough examination, I will review my findings and discuss the diagnosis and treatment options with you.
I strongly believe in patient comfort as well as keeping current with the latest advancements in dentistry. This enables me to provide you with the highest quality dental care possible. I practice all aspects of dentistry including cosmetics, implants, crowns, bridges and dentures.
One thing that separates our office from other practices is our emphasis on educating our patients about their oral health issues and treatment options.
I am proud to provide my patients with comfort, new technology and quality dental care. Feel free to e-mail us - it is my pleasure to address all your questions and concerns.
