The Dr. Zolinski, DDS Dental Team


If you’re looking for a dental office that will take the time to get to know you, truly customize your dental treatment, and treat you just like family, we are the place for you. Dr. Joseph Zolinski and our team provide expert comprehensive dental care. But we are also known for our sense of humor and fun approach to dentistry. We’re not your average dental office. We treat our patients just like family and enjoy laughing together to make dental visits enjoyable for all.

We offer a comprehensive range of treatments, covering all general, cosmetic, and restorative dental services. No issue is too complex for our team to tackle, and we have done many full mouth restorations that have completely transformed the smiles and lives of our patients.

It’s important to us that you are comfortable before, during, and after treatment. You will find our dental office to be a relaxing and welcoming place. Even if you’re feeling nervous about treatment or haven’t visited the dentist in a while, you can rest assured you’ll have a positive dental experience here. Dr. Zolinski and our team are here to support you every step of the way so you can enjoy a healthy smile for a lifetime.

At Dr. Joseph Zolinski, DDS, we use the latest dental technology to ensure all of our patients have a stress-free experience. For one, Waterlase and Biolase dental lasers make restorative treatments far faster and more comfortable. We also use DIAGNOdent to detect hidden cavities, as well as intraoral cameras so you can see exactly what Dr. Zolinski sees during your evaluation. Digital photography is another tool we utilize to track your progress across multiple treatments.


Dr. Zolinski and his staff are always professional, thorough, gentle and kind. I've been with them several years now and I recommend them to anyone who asks.

Joseph P. Zolinski, DDS

Dr. Zolinski was born in Saginaw, Michigan, and grew up in Bay City. His family often reminds him that he told them he was going to be a dentist at the tender age of 6. He graduated from Bay City Western and became an Eagle Scout along with his two brothers.

Dr. Zolinski studied at Michigan State University and the University of Detroit Mercy. He began practicing dentistry in June 1996, and he’s never looked back. He says there is nothing he would rather do for a living than be a dentist. Dr. Zolinski is committed to providing his patients with perfection, taking a range of continuing education courses and keeping his skills up to date.

At our dental office, Dr. Zolinski can often be heard before he is seen. He’s known for his infectious laugh and ability to put patients at ease with his lightheartedness and exceptional people skills.

Outside of his busy dental practice, Dr. Zolinski enjoys spending time with his family. He and his wife, Wendy, have two adult children, Devyn and Dylan, who are both now in college. They also have two dogs, Cooper and Gigi.

Dr. Zolinski is an avid outdoorsman and a keen bird hunter. He loves taking hunting trips for ducks and pheasants. He’s also a fan of snowmobiling and frequently travels to the Upper Peninsula for weekends full of fun and snow.
