GWINN, MI – Inge Ford, Doctor of Dental Medicine (DMD), has joined the team of Dental providers at Upper Great Lakes Sawyer Family Health Center (UGL).
Dr. Ford is originally from Texas where she earned her Bachelor of Science in Biology Degree from University of Houston and her Master of Science in Biology Degree from Texas Southern University, also in Houston. Dr. Ford was a researcher and secondary educator in Texas before she moved to Florida for dental school, where she received her Doctor of Dental Medicine Degree from University of Florida – College of Dentistry in Gainesville. She lived and practiced in south Florida for almost 30 years.
Wanting to learn about different regions and cultures has led Dr. Ford to live in areas such as on the U.S. east coast, Canada, and abroad in North Africa. She looks forward to working in the Upper Peninsula. Says Ford, “the U.P. seems like another interesting area with a need I can help with. I’m looking forward to working with new people and extending patient care.” Helping patients understand their treatment options for their best possible health outcome is something Dr. Ford strives for. She enjoys all aspects of patient care.
Dr. Ford is a certified yoga therapist and integrative wellness educator. She enjoys bicycling (both commuting and long rides), creating “good-tasting” vegan meals, homebrewing kombucha with unique flavors, beekeeping, quilting, and gardening. She gives credit to her family – 4 adult children (2 daughters and twin son) and 5 grandchildren – for supporting her in her curiosity.
UGL’s Sawyer Family Health Center is located at 301 Explorer Street, Gwinn, MI. To schedule an appointment with Inge Ford, DMD, call 906-346-9275.

About Upper Great Lakes Family Health Center
Upper Great Lakes Family Health Center is a Federally Qualified Health Center (FQHC) dedicated to providing high quality health care services (medical, dental and behavioral health) to everyone regardless of their ability to pay.
Our team of health care providers and support staff practices the Patient Centered Medical Home (PCMH) model. PCMH is a model of healthcare where the patient is at the center of their health care team. Each patient is empowered to develop an ongoing, personal relationship with their provider, clinical staff and care team. Whatever the healthcare needs – primary or secondary, preventive care, acute care, chronic care, oral health, behavioral health, or end-of-life care – the patient has a medical “home”; a single, trusted provider and care team, through which continuous, comprehensive and integrated care is provided.
