Family Dentist in Grand Rapids, Cascade,
and Grandville, MI
Grand Rapids Dental Partners Family Dentistry includes:
When more than a routine exam is needed, we will make every effort to provide a safe, calm environment for your child. Parents also can help prepare children to be relaxed and cooperative.
We also have sunglasses to protect against overhead lights, hand mirrors for close-up views of their own teeth, televisions, and movies, and a prize box of toys that your child can choose from, as well as balloons at our Grandville location! Your kids will walk away with a new toothbrush of their choice, and toothpaste and floss if needed.
Too many of our adult patients tell us about the fear and pain they associate with their childhood dental visits. Years later, these memories can still create very real anxiety and lead to avoidance of the dentist.
When it comes to our caring for your children, we want to set the stage for a lifetime of dental health by providing family dentistry. Since people are more likely to remember a traumatic experience than a routine one, our goal is to create a “forgettable” visit for each child—and an unforgettable experience for the parents. Prepare for your child’s dentist appointment by checking out our New Patients page and look at some common questions below.
Family Dental Care Services We Offer
Cavities & Cleanings:
When more than a routine exam is needed, we will make every effort to provide a safe, calm environment for your child. Parents also can help prepare children to be relaxed and cooperative. If helpful, we have televisions in the rooms and can provide laughing gas (nitrous oxide) to help alleviate any nerves.
Tooth Sealants and Laser Cavity Detection
By sealing off the deep grooves and fissures on the chewing surfaces of the teeth, we prevent the invasion of bacteria and sugars in the areas beyond the reach of the toothbrush.
The greatest benefit of fluoride occurs when it is presented at the correct level in growing children. In this manner, it becomes incorporated into the developing tooth and gives a lifelong benefit of lower decay rates. When children do not live in an area with fluoride in the water, we recommend testing their drinking water so we can prescribe an appropriate supplement.
Digital Oral X-rays
This service can detect hidden decay, reveal a dental abscess or cyst within the bone, help with the diagnosis of periodontal (gum) disease, and help diagnose other potential problems.

What is Sleep Dentistry?
Sleep apnea is a disorder that prevents the body from getting enough oxygen during sleep. People with sleep apnea stop breathing for brief periods of time while sleeping. The most common form of sleep apnea is called Obstructive Sleep Apnea (OSA). The name comes from throat blockage that is caused by the tongue or palate.
Dr. Josh Smith is a member of the American Academy of Dental Sleep Medicine (AADSM) and, in collaboration with the local sleep centers at Spectrum Health and Metro Health, he remains up to date on the latest treatments for sleep apnea.
