r. Michael E Fitterling

Dr. Fitterling has committed his life to excellence in dentistry.  Our dental team provides a plan of care for you that will help you have healthy teeth and gums, an attractive smile, chew comfortably and keep your natural teeth for life. 

Dr. Fitterling grew up on a farm in Warrensburg, Missouri.  He graduated from the University of Missouri-Kansas City Dental School in 1973 with honors.  Following graduation he did dentistry in the Army at Ft. Benning, Georgia for two years.  Dr. Fitterling and his wife, Margie, moved to Joplin in 1975.  He worked in the Frisco Building for four years before building his office at 2614 McCoy.  It was our dental home until it was destroyed by the Joplin tornado in 2011.  “It was a huge challenge, but with an awesome dental team and great patients, we survived a year of doing dentistry in trailers.  We moved into our new office in May, 2012.  We changed our name from Fitterling Dentistry to Joplin Family Dental as we looked to the future and opportunities to expand our office with additional doctors and team members.”

Dr. Fitterling’s commitment to provide patients with excellent dentistry is demonstrated in the many hours of continuing education he has attended.  His extensive training in Sedation dentistry has provided many people the opportunity to have healthy teeth and a beautiful smile. 

“Your comfort is my priority and the sedation dentistry we provide helps many people be comfortable and relaxed during their appointments.  I love dentistry and the opportunity to develop friendships with my patients, their families and our dental team.  It’s very rewarding to restore a patient’s smile with skill and predictability.  The success of dental treatment begins with open communication.   Our professional and compassionate team will listen and provide dentistry for you and your entire family in a comfortable and caring atmosphere.”

Dr. Fitterling is an avid golfer, enjoys traveling and spending time with family and friends.  He is very active in his church and enjoys volunteering at the Ronald McDonald House.
