The Antrim County High Tea is an all-volunteer grass-roots organization.

Since 2004, the organization has raised more than $200,000.

Dr. Peter Piché, an established Traverse City dentist, recently completed post-graduate education in advanced techniques of Bioesthetic Dentistry taught by the OBI Foundation for Bioesthetic Dentistry.

The techniques are based on optimal biology, following nature's ideal relationships of form and function to re-create a mouth and establish proper bite. Bioesthetic dentistry looks at the relationship of the jaw and teeth, and the effect of this relationship on the teeth, as well as the nerves, muscles and other tissues.
