Get To Know Dr. Paul Racine
Dr. Racine grew up in Flint and Grand Blanc, the 4th in a family of 6 children. He was a part of the first class to graduate from Powers Catholic High School. Dr. Racine didn’t always know he wanted to be a dentist. In fact, at one point after high school, he thought about a life in the priesthood and studied at Thomas Aquinas University in Rome, Italy. He returned to America and attended the University of Michigan-Flint where he received a degree in Biology, and continued on to Ann Arbor to graduate from the University of Michigan Dental School in 1983. He practiced in Flint for 4 years before joining Dr. Gregory Peacock in Clio in 1987, and has loved it here ever since! He is caring, kind, and compassionate and his love for dentistry shows in the great practice and staff he has attained over the years.
Dr. Racine’s passion for dentistry is reflected in his constant drive to further his education. He has completed over 2,500 hours of continuing education with particular emphasis on Prosthodontics, Sedation, Occlusion, Cosmetic and Implant Dentistry. He has also completed two mini-residencies in Implant Dentistry and has performed implant procedures since 1990. He is an active member of the American Dental Association, the Academy of General Dentistry, and the American Dental Society of Anesthesiology. Dr. Racine also attained a Mastership in the Academy of General Dentistry, a Fellowship from the International Congress of Oral Implantologists, and a Mastership in the American Dental Society of Anesthesiology. He has been a research associate with the University of Michigan and a member of the Peer Review Committee for the Genesee District Dental Society.
Dr. Racine has a full life outside of work as well! He and his wife Sandy have been married since 1985 and stay active keeping up with their five children and four (and counting!) grandchildren. Outside of work, Dr. Racine's hobbies include swimming, biking, kayaking, cross-country skiing, and a general interest in liberal arts. He loves spending time up north with his family and having a good time.
