Dr. Michael Minars, D.M.D.
Specialist in Orthodontics
Born in Hollywood, Dr. Michael Minars grew up just one mile from his office, attending Stirling Elementary, Attucks Middle and Hollywood Hills High School.
His undergraduate work was completed at the University of Michigan. From there, he returned to his home state for dental school at the University of
Florida. There he earned his Doctor of Dental Medicine. His talent and hard work were recognized when he graduated as valedictorian. He then completed
his orthodontic residency in Ft. Lauderdale at Nova Southeastern University.
Dr. Minars is the third doctor in the family to be practicing in Hollywood. His father and brother are just down the street at Minars Dermatology. Family
values and home life are great assets which Dr. Minars brings to his practice. He has known his wife, Jessica, since the third grade. They have been
married since 1998. Together, they have 3 children: Cameron, Chloe and Parker.
Maintaining state-of-the-art equipment and advanced skills in technique are directly related to the time and intensity which Dr. Minars participates in
continuing education and related association meeting.

Dr. Minars’ work has been recognized nationally with the publication of “Predicting Skeletal Maturation Using Cervical Vertebrae”, in Today’s F.D.A., October
2003. When Dr. Minars is not creating beautiful smiles or spending time with his family, he is usually enjoying his other passion…water sports.
Surfing, wake boarding, and kite boarding can keep him in the water for hours. Some of his “toys” can be seen on the office walls of his brand new
state-of-the-art office that just recently opened in November 2008. His love for water sports is displayed throughout the office, along with nine flat
screen televisions to create a relaxed and welcoming environment for the patients.
