Dr. Vand de Vyver and his staff are friendly and professional and deliver pain-free dental care… plus the greatest playlist in the Metro Detroit Area! You will leave here with a beautiful and healthy smile. %

GLD Patient
Polite pleasant gentle and prompt. Dr. Van de Vyver listens to my concerns and answers my questions. I’m new and very pleased with the practice, and I’m a fussy customer! I give GLD 5 stars and will definitely happy to have found a great dentist!

GLD Patient
I was specifically looking for a Dentist that could use CAD/CAM in their office to create a crown during one visit and found Great Lakes Dentistry in Royal k. At my old Dentist, a crown would take at least two office visits (more if the temporary came off) and around 2 weeks to wait for the crown to be created. Dr. Shawn Van de Vyver did all of this in 90 MINUTES! I am completely satisfied. The office staff was friendly and concerned with my comfort. I will be recommending this office to my friends and family.

GLD Patient
Dr. VandeVyver is the best dentist I have ever had. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend him to anyone. He’s very up to date on skills, technology and knowledge. His use of the latest technology makes fillings, crowns, and other services so much easier on the patient. He’s fast, thorough and painless. The same day crowns are great! What I really like, though, is that he explains everything to you quickly and in easy to understand terms. He has a great staff as well. They are friendly, gentle and thorough.
