Dr. Gloria No joined Clarkston Family Dental in June of 2020 after graduating from University of Michigan Dental School. Dr. No was born in Philadelphia and moved to Michigan in elementary school. She joined her family and became a Clarkston resident when she began working with our team. To Dr. No, the most rewarding aspect of dentistry is the ability to help patients overcome their fears and anxieties of going to the dentist. When “Dr. Glo” is not at the office teaching kids to love coming to the dentist, she is at home testing out new recipes and spending time with her rescue dog, Daisy.
