MI Smiles Dental Grand Haven

We’ve always been dedicated to helping patients get the quality dental care they need to maintain healthy smiles. We understand that looking for a new dentist can be frustrating, but it doesn’t have to be when you choose us. Our Grand Haven dentists provide family dental care for patients of all ages.

Why MI Smiles Dental Grand Haven?

General dentistry focuses on the prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of oral health issues. It’s important that you see our general dentists every 6 months so we can monitor the health of your teeth, gums, and jaw.

Our dentists understand that lifestyle choices and family history affect oral health. For example, our dentists do frequent oral cancer screenings for someone who smokes. Likewise, we closely monitor jawbone tissue after tooth loss. Our dentists understand that oral health and overall health are connected.

We accept the following insurance providers:

What led you to seek a career in dentistry?

“I knew early on in high school that I wanted to go into healthcare and help people pursue healthy and happy lives. I had fantastic experiences with my dentist and orthodontist growing up. They were great clinicians, but they were even better at reaching out and making sure their patients were informed of their options, comfortable with their decisions, and left the office feeling satisfied with their care. Dentistry drew me in because it offers a unique opportunity to blend caring for patients and connecting with people.”
