MEET THE DOCTOR

Hello! I’m Dr. Walter Phillips.

I am very excited to offer the community a new state-of-the-art dental office. I was born and raised in the neighboring Belleville area, so I am a local member of the community.  I graduated from Lincoln High School in 1985. I joined the United States Army after high school, serving active duty for four years as a dental assistant and then as a dental hygienist. After active duty, I joined the Army Reserve—serving until 1995, when I got accepted into the University of Michigan School of Dentistry. I graduated from the University of Michigan in 1999, and then returned to the US Army Reserve where I still currently serve as a Dental Officer.

In 2002, I opened a family dental practice in Ypsilanti, which has been one of the most fulfilling endeavors that I have been a part of. In 2004, I was deployed to Iraq and feared the worst for my business. When I returned, the outpouring of support that I received was overwhelming, which made me realize that being a dental provider is more than just “working on teeth,” but an opportunity to establish a relationship with each patient. I recognize every relationship is unique and allows me to combine my expertise with your wishes to create a positive outcome—a healthy, beautiful smile! In may of 2018 I am proud to say that after 33 years of service I have retired from the military and will now be able to focus all of my energy on the thing that I love, and that is the practice of dentistry.

I look forward to the opportunity of delivering the highest quality dental care to the citizens of Canton and the surrounding areas. We have a state-of-the-art facility which offers the highest quality of care and an experienced and well-trained staff to accommodate all of your dental needs. Our goal is to serve our patients and positively impact the community. I look forward to meeting you and your family. Feel free to contact me at the office or directly via e-mail at drphillips@cantoncenterdental.com if you have any questions or concerns.
