THIS IS WHAT WE DO
(WE DO IT BETTER THAN THE OTHER GUYS)
DENTAL IT SERVICES
Sensors acting up? Intermittent issues with your intraoral cameras? Issues connecting to your EHR software reliably? Not all Dental IT support is the same. There’s a reason we are known as Northwest Michigan’s #1 Dental IT Partner. It’s time to see why!
HEALTHCARE IT SUPPORT
HIPAA-covered entities are subjected to all sorts of hoop-jumping these days. Does your IT partner get this stuff? Technology in the medical industry is fast-paced and oftentimes overwhelming. We’re ahead of the curve. That’s how we roll. Come with us.
CLOUD & MANAGED IT
You can resist it all you like, but so many of your everyday services are moving rapidly to the cloud. While it’s certainly not yet the answer for everything, some things make sense. We help you maintain ownership of your data and security across the board.
WEB DESIGN & DEVELOPMENT
Whether you need to spruce up your current site, optimize your online presence, or start from scratch with a cutting-edge, responsive, attractive site, our dedicated web development and online marketing team will knock your socks off (and on time).

What They Say About The #ITninjas
Cathy Dilts Carter, CPNP
Kids Creek Children’s Clinic, PC
The folks at Affinity are very helpful and knowledgeable. They always respond as soon as possible to our requests - especially emergencies. I'm amazed at how well they remember all of our staff's names and are friendly and polite, but not intrusive while in our office. We are an office where confidentiality is required and they are very sensitive to that! Great group to work with!
Steve Hall, DDS
Suttons Bay Dental Center
Ben and his team helped us streamline our office network and shore up possible security vulnerabilities. He is personable, efficient, and extremely knowledgeable. I continue to recommend him to anyone for IT needs.
Pulmonary & Critical Care of Northwest Michigan
Our practice moved IT partnership to Affinity in 2018 and we have been completely impressed. The response time is amazing, which is critical when trying to operate a physician's office. The staff is also top notch. They are quick to communicate, professional, and understanding of our needs. I can't say enough good things about this company and their service!
John C. Hall, DDS, MS
Hall Periodontics & Dental Implants
Ben at Affinity has been very helpful in bringing (and keeping) my medium-sized specialty office network system up to date. He has demonstrated excellent response times when emergencies have come up over the past five years. I would highly recommend him for your business technology needs.
Meet The Master #ITninja
After all, it is good to know who you’re trusting your IT needs to, right? Our team has been providing quality, comprehensive IT support to the Northwest Michigan community since it’s inception in 2005. Managing Director(and Master IT Ninja) Ben Blissett embodies the philosophy of offering top-notch customer service and a best-in-class technology experience with affordable IT solutions, always with a compassionate, optimistic approach, and a genuine smile.
So who is this shiny chrome dome that all these healthcare clinics and practices across Northwest Michigan trust to handle their day-to-day and long-term technology needs? Well, that's me! How about that?
I've been enveloped in the Information Technology industry for over twenty years (hold on a tic ... yeah, that's about right), having been in the middle of everything from network engineering to computer maintenance to web development to application development. In the fall of 2005, it was time to try my own thing!
My professional experience has always been all about client educational technology, and I've always prided myself as being the 'comfortable catalyst' between technology and the end user (that's you!)
I find my vocation's greatest satisfaction to be working one-on-one with my clients to make the technology aspect of their lives more understandable (and enjoyable!). Developing lasting professional relationships and establishing long-term trust with my client base is of utmost importance to me.
But wait a minute here. It's not just about me. It's about this absolutely fantastic team I have with me. You'll only get to the top if you have the right people, after all! I'd like to say I got lucky with all of these awesome peeps that have helped make us what we are, but lucky has nothing to do with it. It's hard, honest work with careful attention to detail, always striving to truly be the best at what we do, and, well, to be frank, a constant and perpetual downpour of blessings from the Big Guy upstairs.
Affinity provides best-in-class, compliance-focused IT services to over fifty medical clients in Northwest Michigan, from lovely lakeside Ludington over to East Lansing and all the way up to (and beyond) Alpena and the Mighty Mac. We proudly maintain a strong and loyal customer base all throughout the state (and even into others), focusing on dental and specialty healthcare IT integration, regulatory standards and security, educational technology, state and local municipalities, and modern, applicable business technology.
If you've been referred to Affinity, you're certain to have been told that this optimistic, personable, goofy bald dude is exactly who you're looking for if you want to make technology work optimally for your clinic, practice, or organization. That's because I do things differently (and I'm not just saying that like everyone else does). Ask around, ask another dentist, or give us a holler and see for yourself. You'll be glad you did!
