Everyone was so nice! I look forward to going back to complete my treatment after seeing the two specialists that the dentist referred me to. Thanks to all of you at Great Lakes Dentistry.

Kelsey is an awesome hygienist!! Dr. V is caring and remembers his patients, very engaged. Also, Sarah is the most welcoming, soothing and helpful front office rep; just love going to the dentist now! It makes a difference when you have a caring staff. I would recommend Dr. V and his staff to anyone who may have any fears or dislike of visiting the dentist, this office will change your opinion and you will love going!!!

After going to the same dentist for 30+ years he retired. A friend recommended Dr. V, that it would be worth the drive. I live in Canton so it is 70 miles round trip. The friend was correct in recommending Great Lakes Dentistry. His office staff is competent and friendly which usually tells you their boss is also. Dr. V was very courteous and put me at ease. I am so happy I have my dentistry needs met now that my family will be going over there also. Thank you Dr. V and your staff for a pleasant dentist visit. Great Lakes Dentistry is certainly worth the drive.

A horrible experience! I have major anxiety about the dentist and when I went to have a consultation I told the dentist that. He assured me I didn't need the gas and highly discouraged it. I was to have a crown and an extraction. I had the crown done and adtee 30 minutes of him trying to pull my tooth he couldn't get it out. He sent me away to go to a dentist that would put me out. Tramatic for me, to say the least! No follow up, nothing. The worst experience

Dr. V and staff do such a great job!! Dr. V has an excellent "bedside manner". I am one who stresses when major things have to happen to my mouth and he does what he can to eleviate my unease and even takes breaks to help calm. Thank you, Dr. V, for being a doctor who looks out for others first!

I thought I needed a filling replaced on a tooth that also had a root canal done about 10 years ago....all by another dentist. Apparently that tooth should have had a crown put on at the time of the root canal and I'm lucky that tooth didn't break. Dr. V took great care of me and I got a crown put on in 2 hours!!!!! Seriously..2 hours? Yes. It was amazing. It's my canine tooth, so very visible. It actually looks better than the real tooth which was discolored. I've had 2 other crowns done by 2 different dentists and the experiences were not great and very time consuming. His assistant was great...Samantha I think, and Sarah at the desk very nice as well. I would recommend Dr V's office to everyone!

Very professional and thorough! I am always pleased with my care here! Just recommended this facility to my sister and her husband who are currently looking for a new dentist because they are not happy with their current dentist.

What an experience, the staff and Dr. Shawn Van de Vyver are very professional and friendly. I was terrified because 1) I have anxiety of dental offices and procedures and 2) feeling ashemded of my teeth. However not once did I feel judged or looked down on about my current teeth and I am greatful and very appreciative for that, thank you Great Lakes Dentistry. I am looking forward to future visits and a happy and healthy smile ????. Thanks again and have a wonderful day.

Super friendly and helpful staff. They offer weekend hours which is awesome for people like myself who can’t make it during the week. They use amazing technology, are thorough, and walk you through what they are doing. Some people stress going to the dentist. Well, stress no more at Great Lakes!

The most pleasant experience I have ever had at a dentists.UPDATE: I had originally rated it a full 5 stars but then they spammed my phone with advertisements for their services.

Update 2018 December: new ownership I’ve limited experience here with just one cleaning. Dr, V. Sold out and our verdict will come in a month or so after my daughter visits soon. Original review with original owner Below. MY wife daughter and I all go to Great Lakes Dentistry. After years of avoiding a bad tooth I went in for a root canal. Something I was scared to death of. Dr. V did an amazing job and though he had to double novocaine me, I was relieved to experience at most a 2 on the pain scale. He was aggressive where it mattered in making the crown adhere and gentle where he needed to be. He even had some good calming words to reassure me as we moved forward. I'm gonna go for root canal 2 in a month or so. He made me feel good enough to do it again. As for cleaning appointments I'd just say find one you like and request them. We've had preferences even amongst my girls as to which one we like. Dentistry is a tough job. I read a 1 star review and thought what a tough spot a dentist is in. They are damned if they do and damned if they don't. This guy is really good at what he does and he cares. That matters.

I had the opportunity to go to Great Lakes Dentistry in Royal Oak today and was extremely impressed. From the initial interaction (front desk & registration) through to the hygiene appointment and closing with the dentist's exam - everything was fantastic and I highly recommend this dentist. I have been to other local Royal Oak dentists and while this location is tucked away in North Royal Oak, the team was amazing. Miko, the Dental Hygienist, was fantastic with great chair-side manner. Dr. Chadda provided a very good perspective on some follow-up needs and even went so far as to show me on the x-rays what needs repair and what issues are considered watch areas. Great experience and highly recommended.

I had used this dentist for a long time before the change in ownership. I recently went on the website to request an appointment. My request could not be honored (completely understandable) so they offered me a different time 2 weeks from when I requested (being busy = good problem). They offered a time a week after that. I couldn’t make it work in my schedule. I replied to that email with my availability during the week they suggested and the week after with a lot of availability. This was on 1/23/19. I have not heard back from the office since my reply.I have been a client of this office for better than 6 years. I have not had a problem with them until the ownership change. New ownership does not seem interested in retaining clients.

My visits at Great Lakes Dentistry are always enjoyable. Right when you walk in the ladies at the front desk always greet you with a warm welcome and a big smile. But it doesn’t just end there. The dental team always make every effort to make sure the patient experience is one that is thorough, comfortable, and convenient. Their smiles are absolutely contagious, they’re attentive and knowledgeable, and very professional. This is a remarkable dental team that deserves kudos for everything they do!I highly recommend Great Lakes Dentistry!

The entire staff is friendly and super knowledgeable. This has been a major leap forward for me and my family in terms of dental care and education.I would never hesitate to recommend this team. Go you will be happy you made the switch.Up to date with technology for appointments scheduling.

Dr. Chadda is awesome! Super friendly and a great at what she does. The rest of the staff is extremely nice and helpful. Easy to get into and get the work done that you need. 10/10 would recommend!
Amazing patient experience, great team!
I've been a patient for about 5 years. Had a scheduled cleaning last Saturday with Dawn (who is always warm, friendly and professional) and met new owner, Dr. Chadda, for the first time. Unfortunately, my x-ray showed a cracked crown! Not the best news, but I returned this past Thursday and Dr. Chadda skillfully and painlessly removed my crown and put in a temporary until the stronger one can be made/placed. Front desk staff is always competent and accommodating. Great experience!

Dr. DeVyver is a good guy. My family has used him now for about 4-5 years. I've also enjoyed those that work for him as well. He backs his work if something...
Very caring and professional staff. I always walk away grateful for finding such a great dental office.
I love my dentist!!! Every time I go in I am greeted by his team of friendly employees. They are not only nice but they are knowledgeable. His assistant...
