I am not satisfied with providing average care. i continuously pursue being the best and striving for perfection.
Me At A Glance:
A smile is the most powerful thing that a person possesses. I love helping my patients maximize that asset by making their smiles bright, their teeth straight and beautifully shaped with their oral health great. My passion is to provide the highest quality care at an affordable price. I want my patients to feel that they have been served with compassion. It gives me great joy to see them feel good about themselves and how they look because of the dental care they have received from me.
I am not satisfied with providing average care. I continuously pursue being the best and striving for perfection, a passion that began during my years in school. I attended Calvin College for my undergraduate degree and continued on to the University of Detroit where I earned my Doctor of Dental Surgery degree in 1982. I completed my General Practice Residency at Strong’s Memorial Hospital and the University of Rochester in 1983. I am devoted to excellence and am a lifelong learner. I am constantly fine-tuning my existing skills and continuously embracing new skills and technology. In 1987, I became a fellow of the Academy of General Dentistry after completing numerous hours of continuing education in all aspects of dentistry. In 1996, I became a Master of the Academy of General Dentistry. I am a recipient of the Lifelong Learning & Service Recognition through the AGD. I am a member of the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry. I am also a member of the West Michigan, Michigan, and American Dental Associations.
I have been an elder in my church since 2002 and am a founder of a collaborative ministry called Seeds of Promise, working together with many different organizations to bring sustainable transformation to the neighborhoods and areas of the city with the greatest needs. I have been part of this movement for 15 years. For over 20 years, I volunteered dental services at Exalta Health, formerly known as the Baxter Clinic, and now sit on their advisory committee. I have been on four overseas mission trips to Siberia, Dominican Republic, Honduras, Nepal, and Kenya. See www.worldmission.cc. For over seven years, I have also provided free dental exams to hundreds of children at Convoy of Hope Days in Grand Rapids.
I am a native of Grand Rapids and feel very fortunate to serve in the community where I grew up. My wife, Julie, and I have been happily married for 42 years and we have three grown children, Laura, Katie, and Michael. Julie and I are now grandparents of six grandchildren. In my free time, I can usually be found playing golf, walking the shoreline of Lake Michigan, or working in my yard.
I have always just wanted to serve my community and my passion for dentistry let's me do just that!
Dr. Greidanus grew up right here in Grand Rapids. He completed his undergraduate degree in biology at Calvin College. He went on to complete his doctorate at the University of Minnesota School of Dentistry.
We asked Dr. Greidanus a few questions so you can get to know him a little better!
“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!”

“I have a big passion for helping my community whenever I get the chance. I have actively volunteered in Hope Dental Clinic, Give Kids a Smile, Degage, Exalta Health, God’s Kitchen, Mel Trotter, Second Harvest Gleaners, Habitat for Humanity, EMAS Ecuador, Community of Hope Ethiopia, CRC World Missions, Dental House Community Service Coordinator, Community Youth Leader, and Plaster Creek Stewards.”
“I would say I am a mixed bag of things… I have dual Canadian/American citizenship. I am an avid rock climber. In my spare time you may find me in the shop wearing my craftsman hat, making, refurbishing, or fixing something with carpentry or metal work. At a wedding you won’t find me at a table, but rather on the dance floor. I also have a strong passion for coaching and playing the sport of hockey!”
“I would definitely say helping them maintain the function they need to smile confidently, eat normally, and live without dental pain!”
“For sure a good workout and a BIG dinner!”
“I have always loved Endodontics.”
