Legacy Dental Group was started in Detroit in 1896 by Dr. Albert Le Gro, who pioneered the modern porcelain crown. Dr. Le Gro was joined in 1927 by Dr. Avery Bartlett, a renowned dental educator. In 1953, Dr. Bartlett’s son Dr. Jack Barlett joined the practice, moved the dental office to Birmingham, and, in turn, invited Dr. Jeffrey C. Grabiel to join once his father retired. Dr. Bartlett retired in 1988.
Shortly thereafter, in 1989, Dr. Grabiel and Dr. John W. Mills decided to combine their offices by moving into a new shared location on Old Woodward Avenue. In 2017, Dr. Raymond J. Kim, joined the practice where the three doctors continued to provide the Metro Detroit area with world class dental care together. Then, in 2020, Dr. Mills quietly retired after 47 rewarding years in dentistry.
Now, in a new home at 2425 E. Lincoln Street, Dr. Grabiel and Dr. Kim have joined forces with Dr. Justin Newingham to create the premier dental center of Birmingham where excellence is our mission.
Legacy Dental’s patients benefit from much more than 120 years of history.
Our welcoming team is looking forward to meeting you. At Legacy Dental, we want you to feel at home.
