Michael Lazarus, D.M.D

Dr. Michael Lazarus has been serving the Stamford area for more than 30 years in the discipline of general, restorative and cosmetic dentistry.

After receiving his Bachelor of Arts and Doctor of Medicine in Dentistry from the University of Connecticut, Dr. Lazarus completed a year of general practice residency in Oakland, CA before returning to Stamford to work with his uncle, Dr. Gary Lessin. In 1987, Dr. Lazarus started his own Stamford-based dental practice.

Throughout his 35 years of experience, Dr. Lazarus has made his patients’ needs a top priority. He believes that good oral health is a partnership between dental provider and patient, and encourages his patients to be an active participant in his or her own care. This approach allows Dr. Lazarus to get to know each patient individually, understand their unique needs and create a personalized dental plan to help them achieve their goals. Dr. Lazarus strongly believes, “This intimate connection allows me to enjoy and commiserate in the changes in their lives as I am fortunate to know them and their families for many years.”

Dr. Lazarus is continually learning his trade and stays abreast of the latest advancements in dental technology and newest procedures, while maintaining a practical approach to treatment that minimizes discomfort, quickens recovery and helps keep costs down.

During his time away from the office, he enjoys spending time with his wife Kathy and sons Jake, Ben and Dan. An outdoor enthusiast, he enjoys biking, hiking and skiing, and never misses a chance to cheer on the UConn Women’s Basketball team.
