Michael A. Niad, DDS
Dr. Michael Niad grew up on the east coast in the suburbs just north of New York City. He attended Washington University in St. Louis and the State University of New York at Stonybrook for his undergraduate studies. As an avid tennis player, he rose to play #1 singles, team captain and 1990 team MVP.
While preparing for the MCAT exam to apply to medical school, Dr. Niad's friend Wolfgang, who was a year ahead of him and applying to dental school, convinced him to take the DAT for practice as the exams were very similar. Needless to say the exam went very well and Dr. Niad was recruited by SUNY Stonybrook Dental Medicine after only three years of college.
After dental school Dr. Niad did a one year residency at the Portland VA/OHSU where he received additional training in various fields of dentistry such as oral surgery, endodontics and medicine in general. He has been practicing in McMinnville since finishing his residency in 1996.
In his spare time Dr. Niad enjoys playing various musical instruments, reading and studying economics and playing with his dogs. Dr. Niad still plays tennis every week at West Hills Tennis Club in the off season and with McMinnville Mens Club in the summer.
Dr. Niad lives with his true soul mate Dawn and their two dogs Tannen and Kesa.
