As a business owner, dentist, mom, author, speaker, and mentor, Dr. Mary Sue Stonisch has pretty much accomplished it all.
Mary Sue opened her dental practice in 1987 and this July, Smile Studio will be celebrating its 35th year. Mary Sue is accredited by the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry as one of only 36 women in the world and accredited with the International Academy of Dental Facial Esthetics as one of the first dentists in Southeastern Michigan to specialize in aesthetic dentistry. Mary Sue is the author of the book Smile Fitness and a Top Doc in Hour Magazine. Mary Sue is also a mentor with the prestigious Kois Dental Center and Engel Implant Institute.
Mary Sue enjoys mentoring other women. She mentors many women inside and outside of the dental profession and has quite a few mentors herself. When she graduated from U of D, only a small percentage were women. Today, more than 50 percent of dentistry graduates are women. She believes that mentoring is a strong support system. “Women serving women is a beautiful concept.” Mary Sue feels that these relationships allow them to see how other women handle their multi-faceted roles in society. “Women carry a different burden.” She feels that it’s important that they understand this burden and how to handle it.
Mary Sue lectures young women around the world. Her sage words of advice to other women are to “follow your dreams.”
When she is not in the office, Mary Sue enjoys fitness, learning, crafting, traveling, and riding bikes. Most of all, Mary Sue enjoys life with her amazing husband Dan and her three beautiful children Patrick, Madeline, and Ellen. Faircourt Dental is located at 20040 Mack Avenue in Grosse Pointe Woods,
