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!!!
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.
Always a great experience. Quality dental work, great staff and more than willing to get you in when you have an emergency.
Super friendly staff, and same day crowns keep me and my family coming back. Dr. V also has a good music playlist going.. bonus!
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.
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!
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!
Everyone there is incredibly friendly and skilled. I actually look forward to going to the dentist!
Great staff, efficient and make you very comfortable. Glad we switched to Dr. V.
Always an excellent experience! The staff, hygienists, and docs all make for a calm, welcoming, and overall positive experience. I always leave feeling very well cared for.
Favorite Dentist & Staff! Very friendly, professional, & high tech! Awesome!
The staff is always very friendly and the quality of work has been exceptional. I would highly recommend them.
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.
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.
