Berkley Physician Reappointed to the Michigan Board of Chiropractic


BERKLEY — Dr. Christophe Dean, founder of Dean Chiropractic in Berkley, was reappointed to the Michigan Board of Chiropractic by Gov. Rick Snyder.

Dr. Dean was reappointed with colleague Thomas Klapp of Ann Arbor. Appointees will serve four-year terms, and their appointments are subject to the advice and consent of the Senate.

Housed within the Michigan Department of Licensing and Regulatory Affairs, the nine member board sets entry-level competency standards for health practitioners, and verifies continuing education during licensure, protecting and promoting the public’s health, safety, and welfare.

Dr. Dean graduated from Palmer College of Chiropractic in Davenport, Iowa, and took over a small practice in Yale. In 1980, he moved to Oakland County to start a new practice in Ferndale, and after 20 years there he moved the practice to its current location in Berkley.

He currently sits on the board of trustees for Logan University in Chesterfield, Mo., is a past president of the Michigan Association of Chiropractors, a senior clinical instructor for Activator Method International, and serves on its Curriculum Committee.
