Meet the doctors of Gentle Dentist

G. Dino Tolias, DDSHi everyone- from the original “Gentle Dentist,” Dr. Dino Tolias. I’m home grown—born here in Detroit—attended Lake Shore High School in St. Clair Shores, and graduated from the University of Michigan Dental School in 1975 (Go Blue!).

It’s been a quick 35 years of practice, but I’m just getting started! My passion is to make visiting the dentist fun while offering the best dentistry available. I love creating new smiles for my patients. I’ve been very fortunate to work with dedicated people. I’ve also been blessed with wonderful patients, many of whom are very dear friends.

I’ve been blessed with a wonderful wife, Janice, and two great sons: Kosta, 14 and Angelo, 12. We love boating and wave running together. Aside from family time, I love golfing, tennis, traveling & working out. I look forward to seeing and working with you.

Donald Brosky, DDSHello everyone! I am Dr. Donald Brosky. I graduated from the University of Detroit with Doctor of Dental Surgery Degree in 1964. I have been in practice over 39 years and still enjoy every minute of it.

I have been a part of the Gentle Dentist Smile-Spa Team since 2002. It has been a pleasure working with great professionals, and being associated with such a fine dentist like Dr. Tolias.

On a personal level, I have been married to my wife Joan since 1959. We enjoy traveling, especially Florida and golfing whenever possible. I also enjoy woodworking. We have five grown children, four boys and one girl. Four of them are married and one is still in college. We have been blessed with sixteen grandchildren over the years. I look forward to seeing you & your family!

Norm Carstens, DDSHi everyone.  I am Dr. Norman Carstens, an orthodontist in the Gentle Dentist – Smile Spa family.  I was raised in Grosse Pointe and graduated from University Detroit Mercy with BS and DDS degrees.

After graduation, I was an officer in the U.S. Army Dental Corps in Heidelberg, Germany.  There I met and married my wife, Linda.  After completion of my military service, I continued my dental education at University of Washington in Seattle.  I received my Master’s Degree in Orthodontics.

I’m happy to be a part of Creative Smiles Orthodontics, which is located within the Gentle Dentist – Smile Spa practice.

I enjoy spending time with my wife and two children, Andrea and Matthew, and my two grandsons.  I look forward to being a part of creating great smiles for our patients!

Justina D'Agostini LaPoulas, DMD, MSHello! I’m Dr. LaPoulas, an Orthodontist with Creative Smiles, an Orthodontics practice within Gentle Dentist – Smile Spa here in St. Clair Shores.

I completed my undergraduate education at the University of Michigan and earned my dental degree from Case Western Reserve University in Cleveland, Ohio. At University of Illinois at Chicago (UIC), I completed the orthodontic residency program.

I’ve been fortunate to receive honors for my scholastic achievements and multiple awards for research in orthodontics. I am dedicated to education and passionate about providing my patients the best orthodontic care possible.

Following graduation, I successfully completed a specialized examination process to become a board-certified orthodontist. I am now a diplomat of the American Board of Orthodontics in addition to being a member of the American Association of Orthodontics, American Dental Association, and Michigan Dental Association.

I enjoy spending my free time with family and friends. My husband Nick and I are active volunteers for the Make-A-Wish Foundation and avid sports enthusiasts. We especially enjoy cheering on the Detroit Lions, the Detroit Red Wings, and the University of Michigan football team!

Dr. Ivan Green, DDSMy name is Dr. Ivan Green, and I’m delighted to be with the team at Gentle Dentist – Smile Spa. I graduated from Cass Technical High School in 1963 and U of D Dental School in 1969 where I was awarded the Chalmer Lyons Oral Surgery Award and the Block Drug Company Senior Essay Contest. I practiced in the northwest suburbs and was an instructor in Oral Pathology as well as attending staff at Sinai Hospital in Detroit.

I moved to NYC in 1975 and developed a cosmetic / reconstructive practice in Lincoln Center. I was one of the first dentists in the country to use bonded porcelain laminate veneers. While in NYC, I held a position as attending staff at St. Lukes/ Roosevelt Hospital for many years, mainly with teaching responsibilities.

I returned to Michigan in 2000 and returned to teaching dentistry at UDM. I re-entered private practice about 3 years ago “to practice what I preach”. At home, I am the proud owner of 2 dogs, several gardens and have an endless stream of projects that keep me busy. In my off-hours I enjoy reading, fishing and classical music.
