I all of a sudden had pain in one tooth taking a drink of cold water one night. The next day I’m looking for a dentist because the pain didn’t go away and I come across this office and the reviews were all good so I called. They took me THAT day and both Crystal (the receptionist and assistant) and Dr. Van was so accommodating and nice I instantly got good vibes and felt comfortable. He was so gentle and you could tell he knew what he was doing. I ended up needing a root canal which he numbed me really good, didn’t feel a thing. He did a great job. I also got a cleaning and a full exam and again he was gentle. He actually talks to you and gets to know you. He has an awesome personality. You can just tell he cares and wants to get to know his patients. I just loved him. Crystal was SO patient and nice with all my questions (because I had A LOT) about pricing, payment plans, the procedure and appointments. They’re both so cool and down to earth and do such a good job, I HIGHLY recommend this office! Only thing is, they are only open 2 days a week. Which I did not know and felt bad because I called for 4 days with no call back and got a bit upset that I wasn’t hearing back from them, mostly because my husband was pestering me pretty bad about prices, procedures, etc. When Crystal called me back she explained to me their hours and went over everything with me, again with patience. We were on the phone a while because she took time to figure out how much everything would be and try to get me the lowest price. To me, that meant a lot. You don’t go to a lot of places that spend time trying to help you for that long and if you do the person gets an attitude or you can tell they’re annoyed but she wasn’t.Sorry this was so long. I just wanted to be detailed so you know this is a good place in every way! Love them.read more
Dr. Van is one of the very best dentists that I have used and our family have used many dental practices. With many large practices you will spend the majority of your appointment with a hygienist or dental technician. Not with Dr. Van. You are getting all top-notch dentistry with the Dr. himself. He has a state of the art facility where you will enjoy beautiful fast dental procedures such as cleaning, laser cleaning, repairs, implants, whitening, devices for solving the dangerous health issue of sleep apnea and convenient dental implants. He also accommodates early morning appointments. Dr. Van is very knowledgeable about how to get the most of your dental insurance benefits and also set up an easy payment plan on our balance that we can manage with our monthly bills without breaking the bank. Dr. Van knows, loves and understands children and he is especially great as a pediatric dentist! Did I mention he wrote a book on modern dentistry, he did! See it in his office! Thanks Dr. Van and staff : )read more
Dr. Van de Vyver is new in the area, not dentistry. He is friendly and upbeat. Has all the latest technology, things I never seen before. He did a filling and crown (which he makes on site). Everything went smooth. I needed one of my wisdom teeth removed which he did yesterday. I wouldn't say I enjoyed it, but he did a nice job and I'm fine today (without pain pills). I had one done many years ago and was in pain for 5 days.read more
Let me start by saying that I have not seen a dentist in a very long time and I have HUGE anxiety about dental work. Dr. Van de Vyver and his staff (especially his hygienist, Samantha) are amazing, simply put. They put me at ease with their lighthearted small-talk and let me see what they were doing with a hand mirror during my cleaning, which was so helpful. When I went back to have a wisdom tooth extracted they went above and beyond to make sure I was comfortable and at ease. My anxiety about dental work is non existent now and I'm so thankful he was able to work on me quickly, efficiently and with kindness. I would recommend him to anyone, no matter how far the drive. He's great!read more
This was a visit for my 85 yr old mom. Everyone in the office was so pleasent and went out of there way for us. The fee is very reasonable. The entrance was not friendly for someone who can not walk well. The ramp is very far from the unmarked door to the office. We will certainly go back. I would become a patient if my insurance was excepted.read more
I can not say it enough, I love my dentist! Had a tooth extracted and Dr. V and Marie made it great. We were laughing, yes laughing. If you don’t laugh when you are at your dentist office, you need to get to Dr. V’s office.
I got a crown at Great lakes dentistry. It looks and feels like a real tooth. It was definitely worth the money
