Dr. Michael Plous

Dr. Michael Plous

Dr. Michael Plous has retired from his successful Lakewood Family Dental Practice of 42 years, but his mission is not complete. Building long-term relationships with patients and staff was a cornerstone of his practice. In fact, it was not unusual to have three generations of a family in his practice. Dr. Plous is passionate about making a difference in people's lives. His presence in 2 dental missions to Ecuador, Colorado Dental Mission of Mercy, Kids in Need of Dentistry, and Colorado Foundation of Dentistry for the Handicapped makes him a perfect fit for the vision that SpringRock Dental has created. He meticulously strives for excellence, excels at building rapport with his patients, and creates a relaxed atmosphere with his humor.

Dr. Plous grew up in Green Bay, Wisconsin before the "cheeseheads" existed. After attending the University of Wisconsin in Madison, he graduated from Marquette University Dental School with honors and then completed a General Practice Residency in Syracuse, NY. In 1974, he moved to Denver to establish his Family Dental Practice.

Dr. Plous has been married for several years and has loved being the parent of identical twin daughters. The time spent with his elementary school age grandson is so very special to Dr. Plous

Biking, hiking, golf, reading and travelling, in addition to being an avid sports fan keeps Dr. Plous busy in his leisure time. His love of Vietnamese and Thai food holds a special place in his heart. He is thrilled to have SpringRock be the final chapter of a gratifying career.
