Dr. Cassandra Wieckhorst Dentist Grand Haven MI

Dr. Wieckhorst received her undergraduate degree from Lyman Briggs Residential College at Michigan State University and completed her doctorate at the University of Michigan School of Dentistry.

We asked Dr. Wieckhorst a few questions so you can get to know her a little better!

I sought out a career in dentistry because:

  • I get to make people healthier systemically and often say to my patients “the start to a healthy body is a healthy mouth!”
  • I get to give people the smile that will give them the confidence and comfort to show their personality. I always go back to “How can someone fully be themselves in an interview for a job if they are uncomfortable with their mouth?”
  • I get to meet/interact with many people every day, I am very social/extroverted so I need that in a career; which allows me to serve my community.
  • I get to be a patient advocate and educate the importance of full-body health including dental, medical, and mental health.

What is your goal for your patients?

  1. They leave happier than when they came in.
  2. They are comfortable with the practice and their treatment choices.
  3. They understand the reasoning and importance of their treatment choices.
  4. They do not feel judged.
  5. Most importantly, I want them to know I genuinely care and want the best for them!

What other awesome and interesting things could you share about yourself?

  • Like Dr. Yared, I too attended Lyman Briggs Residential College at Michigan State University before matriculating to the University of Michigan School of Dentistry. I even got to study abroad in Italy and Brazil.
  • I am always reading two books at a time and possibly listening to a third (which is apparently odd).
  • I adore both of my dogs Moonie & Carl. They are the light of my world (if you ask about them, be prepared for a long lecture of me doting over them)!
  • I enjoy workout classes at Orangetheory Fitness.
  • I am enjoying learning how to complete home repairs with power tools.

We asked Dr. Powell a few questions so you can get to know him a little better!

What led you to seek a career in Pediatric Dentistry?

“I always enjoyed working with my hands and wanted a career where I would be able to know I was helping people. This led me to an interest in dentistry. When I started dental school, the idea of working with kids seemed terrifying, but then I discovered how rewarding it is to help a nervous child become comfortable at the dentist and I never looked back.”

What are some achievements that you have gained in regards to dentistry?

“I am a board-certified pediatric dentist and Diplomate of the American Board of Pediatric Dentistry. I served as the legislative director for the University of Michigan chapter of the American Student Dental Association, helping to lobby for oral health policy at the state and federal level.”

What volunteer work have you been a part of in the past?

In dental school, I worked with Special Olympics Special Smiles providing free oral health screenings and oral hygiene instruction to Special Olympics athletes. In residency, I went on a trip to provide free dental work to children in rural Maine who did not have adequate access to care.”

What are some of your interests outside of dentistry?

We asked Dr. Greidanus a few questions so you can get to know him a little better!

What led you to seek a career in dentistry?

“I would point to my own personal dental pain as a child and friends who could not afford the dentistry that they needed. I was driven by the large disparity in the number of dentists compared to the number of people in need. At the end of the day, I have always just wanted to serve my community and my passion for dentistry lets me do just that! I also grew up fascinated with science and working with my hands, which also fit perfectly into my dream profession of being a dentist!”
