Dr. Michele Frawley is a warm and compassionate person, who dedicates her full attention, delicate touch, and excellent clinical skills to each patient she treats.
She graduated Summa Cum Laude from Loyola Marymount University with a BS in Biology in 2001. At LMU, she was a member of several honors societies and service organizations, most notably Alpha Sigma Nu (ASN). She then went to UCLA for dental school, from which she graduated 4th in her class, Magna Cum Laude in 2006. She received several departmental and specialty awards, including being inducted into Omicron Kappa Upsilon (OKU), the national dental honors society. Dr. Michele, as she is affectionately known, furthered her education by doing a one year General Practice Residency (GPR) program in Salt Lake City, Utah. She really enjoyed the experience of living elsewhere, and honed her skills in Cosmetic and Implant dentistry.
Dr. Michele joined Beverly Hills Dentistry in 2007 and is proud to be working with her dad, Dr. Kevin Frawley and her brother, Dr. Shawn Frawley. They make a good team, and each offer unique talents to the practice. Dr. Michele takes great joy in getting to know each of her patients and spends time discussing their families and lives. She believes in whole patient care, which involves talking to patients not only about their teeth, but about their functional bite, their sleep health, their nutrition, and their overall health. She wants to provide her patients with the best techniques and technology, and therefore dedicates much of her time to continuing education, generally over 40 hours a year.
Dr. Michele whole heartedly believes in the power of Organized Dentistry. She is currently President-Elect of the Los Angeles Dental Society (LADS) and will be President in 2017. She is concurrently a member of the American Dental Association (ADA), the California Dental Association (CDA), the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry (AACD), and the American Academy of Dental Sleep Medicine (AADSM).
Dr. Michele was a clinical professor at the UCLA School of Dentistry for several years. She worked with dental students as they worked on patients and trained them both in technical skills and patient interactions. She really enjoys teaching and giving back, frequently inviting interested college and dental students to observe and learn in her office. She volunteers her time and effort for such groups as CDA Cares, Veterans’ Smile Day, and LMU Alumni for Others.
Dr. Michele is always active and her curiosity about the world has led her on some great adventures. She has traveled to Italy, France, Costa Rica, Spain, Slovenia, Canada, Mexico, Czech Republic, Austria, Cuba, and Kenya and is constantly expanding that list. Ask her about her next trip at your upcoming appointment! She enjoys a healthly active lifestyle, and stays fit by running and working out. She is a proud mommy to her American Eskimo dog, Lincoln and loves her nieces Lilly, Avery, Kendall, and nephew Quinn.
