Dr. William Berkowski, D.D.S. received a Bachelor's degree in Chemistry from the University of Detroit (now the University of Detroit Mercy) in 1974, and graduated from the School of Dentistry there in 1978. Dr. Berkowski began practicing general and family dentistry first in Detroit and then in Dearborn, where his office has been for more than 30 years.
In addition to entering private practice after completing his D.D.S, Dr. Berkowski was asked to return to the School of Dentistry first as an instructor of complete and partial dentures, and eventually an Adjunct Associate Professor in the Department of Prosthodontics. He has continued teaching and mentoring there in various capacities ever since, and remains an active participant among UD Mercy dental alumni organizations.
Dr. Berkowski maintains active membership in various professional dental organizations, including the American Dental Association, the Michigan Dental Association, the Detroit District Dental Society, the Detroit Dental Clinic Club, and Omicron Kappa Upsilon, to name just a few. Among many of these, he has held leadership posts throughout the years.

"I have been working for Dr. Berkowski for 29 years. I was trainied in dental assisting & reception after graduating high school.
I really enjoy the opportunities I have had, meeting new patients and listening to their personal stories & life experiences. This job has helped me to grow by getting me out of my comfort zone and overcoming shyness. I also enjoy the friendships I have formed with my coworkers over the past years. We are always there to encourage and help each other and have a great time working together. Not a day goes by that we are not all laughing."
"My family and I have lived in Dearborn for over 20 years. I have a Bachelor's and a Master's degree in Economics. I have worked in the dental field for the past 15 years, and I joined Dr. Berkowski's professional staff in December of 2013. Working with Dr. Berkowski has been a rewarding experience for me; I especially enjoy the diversity of his practice, which provides me the opportunity to utilize my Polish background and communicate with many patients in their native language."
