Dr. Nicole M. Jane
The confidence a person exhibits when having a beautiful smile and well-aligned teeth is an amazing thing, and I enjoy creating this with each of my patients.
When Dr. Jane was eleven, she underwent orthodontic treatment and her self-confidence soared. She wanted to be able to give that feeling to others and thus decided to be an Orthodontist.
At the University of Iowa, she was president of the pre-dental club while earning her Bachelors in Biology. She attended dental school at the University of Michigan and received a full scholarship from the US Navy. She traveled the world as the only dentist aboard the USS Carter Hall (LSD-50), where she was responsible for the dental health of thousands of sailors and Marines.
Dr. Jane received her Master of Science in Orthodontics and opened a practice in South Lake Tahoe, California, where she stayed for seven years.
Dr. Jane has served on the SureSmile Clinical Advisory Board since 2006 and is considered an expert in SureSmile and Lingual technology. She frequently attends conferences and seminars to further her education.
Dr. Jane enjoys being on the water, as she grew up on a lake as a child, as well as playing tennis, skiing, and traveling.
We were comparing orthodontist stories with the parents of my son’s friend. During the discussion, we learned that Dr. Jane is very good about keeping us informed. We knew from day one what the treatment plan was going to be for our son through a verbal discussion as well as a treatment letter mailed to our house within a couple of days of the appointment. We also had regular checkups, including spacers prior to my son’s expander being installed and our first payment initiated. The parents of my son’s friend indicated they can never get any details from their orthodontist and their orthodontist wants payment before they even see the child. We highly recommend The Big Smile.”

Dr. Edward D. Bayleran
During my nine years of practicing general dentistry, it became evident that orthodontics was a natural next step, as it was a specialty devoted to achieving ideal bite, function, and protection.
Dr. Bayleran is truly a Detroit area native. He earned his DDS from the University of Detroit Mercy school of dentistry before earning his commission in the military for two years as a dentist. When he returned, he started a general dentistry practice — a practice which was highly successful for nine years.
He also served as a part-time faculty member at the University of Detroit Mercy Dental School before returning to school himself, where he earned a Master of Science in Orthodontics.
Dr. Bayleran knew he wanted to make the switch from general dentistry to orthodontics because orthodontics allowed him to really focus on giving his patients the ideal function of their teeth. This switch to a specialty practice would protect his patients even more and give them a healthy smile that was easier to take care of.
He has since practiced orthodontics at the same location in Bingham Farms, Michigan for over 30 years. He has distinguished himself in his community through his commitment to excellence in care and continuing education.
With his wife, Ann, he has three children. When not in the office, he enjoys golf, exercise, being an active member of his church, and spending time with his family.
Dr. Bayleran did my braces and his work is amazing. He is very thorough and detail-oriented. He is amazing at listening to the patient’s concerns and desires and works through everything to perfection! His work is an absolute masterpiece.”

Dr. Andrei D. Taut
I love witnessing the joy patients experiencing when they see their post-braces smile for the first time! Orthodontics taught me the importance of maintaining healthy teeth and healthy gums, both of which I strive to pass on to my patients.
Dr. Taut was born in Romania (he even still speaks some Romanian!) and moved to the United States at age nine. As a teenager he had braces and it provided him with the confidence to pursue life’s challenges.
He knew he wanted to do something in the medical field, but it wasn’t until his third year of dental school at the University of Michigan where he found his true calling. He noticed one of his shy, young patients gaining confidence as he underwent orthodontic treatment, and it was at this moment in his life he was convinced he wanted to pursue orthodontics to create healthy, beautiful smiles.
Dr. Taut received his Master of Science in Orthodontics from Marquette University, and he has been heavily involved in dental research. He is a published author that has presented at numerous national and international conferences, and he fondly calls himself a “big science nerd.”
Passionate about treating everyone like family, Dr. Taut is excited to become active in the community and provide amazing opportunities for our patients and charitable organizations they love.
Outside of the office, he and his wife Shannon, a pediatrician, enjoy traveling and cooking new foods. He loves staying active by exercising and playing tennis or basketball. Because of all of his time spent studying at the University of Michigan he is also an avid Michigan sports supporter!
Efficient, effective, hospitable, and no wait times. The assistants are always very knowledgeable. The doctors are top notch as well. Big Smile is simply a beautifully operated establishment.
