Dental Implants – Grand Rapids & Rockford MI

Dental implants are designed to provide a foundation for replacement teeth that look, feel, and function like natural teeth. The person who has lost teeth regains the ability to eat virtually anything and can smile with confidence, knowing that teeth appear natural and that facial contours will be preserved.

Dental implants are changing the way people live. With them, people are rediscovering the comfort and confidence to eat, speak, laugh and enjoy life. For more information about dental implants or to schedule a consultation appointment, call our office in Grand Rapids, MI at Grand Rapids Office Phone Number 616-361-7327.

I was incredibly anxious and cannot say enough about the level of care here! Everyone here made my experience way better than I expected ( not an easy feat :).

Patient Review By Mary W

I was so nervous but everyone in the office was calm and non judgmental. The office called me the next day to check on me, I had no issues with the biopsy site at all! If anyone is fearful about dental procedures, this is the office for you! I really can't say enough about how good they are!

Patient Review By Lynne B

Dr. Rosie is cheerful and pleasant; none of the stuff that she said "could go wrong" did; my tooth was out in a "flash"; no pain throughout -- whatsoever. For me, I would have liked to know of the x-rays in advance -- I would not have worn jewelry. For me, the instructions regarding the mouth rinse were confusing -- different in the written, the prescription, and the bottle; today it's been 3 weeks; I have a small amount of rinse left; I will NOT use it; although it leaves my teeth feeling clean, it makes my tongue feel funny -- almost as if it went to sleep on the end.

Patient Review By Leah A

I felt so safe with this organization. From the staff, to the Doctors. Dr. Panek's work was simply flawless... I did not even need to take pain medication after he performed a cyst removal in my jaw along with a wisdom tooth extraction. I was quite nervous for the surgery and he was so comforting and professional. My husband and I are so grateful for Dr. Panek!

Patient Review By Betsy T

I felt so comfortable and welcomed there. I was greeted by a smiling face with every turn I took in that office. Dr. Emily Van Heukelom .....you have met your calling. Couldn't have asked for a better oral surgeon. You are so calm and it transferred over to me during the procedure. Most importantly, I didnt feel judged by anybody in the office because of the condition of my teeth. The focus was on having a healthier smile. I can't thank you enough!

Patient Review By Diana B

Dr. Panek is definitely a man doing what God created him to be. His knowledge in oral and maxillofacial surgery is exceptional; in addition, very rare in Michigan. By the time I heard of Dr. Panek, I had already exhausted many specialists. A sinus lift with 4 implants already failed from another dentist. I had no bone in my mouth and my arch of my mouth was little to none. No matter how my dentures fit, I could not keep them from falling out. I was without teeth for a year before I was informed of Dr. Panek. He was very patient, compassionate, and understanding. He listened to my story and then tried to explain my predicament. I did not know anything at the time of zygoma implants, however he stated that it would be the best way and actually the only way of guaranteeing me to have teeth. He would do 4 zygoma implants. All the way through surgery, as well as the six months of healing, Dr. Panek and his assistants were nothing short of courteous, considerate and caring, going above and beyond the call of duty. It was as if they were traveling with me on this new journey. Dr. Panek is truly gifted. I can honestly say that a day doesn’t go by without my utmost gratitude for Dr. Panek and his assistants. I would still be toothless today if he would’ve been like all the rest stating, ‘There is nothing more we can do for you.’ But instead, he did an extremely difficult surgery, flawless and with brilliance. Dr. Panek, without a doubt, is # 1 in my book!

Patient Review By Audrey S

Dr. Noordhoek was AMAZING. Friendly, upbeat, funny! All characteristics I value when evaluating an individual operating inside of my mouth! Nothing but positive things to say about the staff, surgery, and facility. An overall great experience for a not-so-fun procedure, but I was more than well taken care of (to say the least!), and I would 110% recommend to anyone!

Patient Review By Megan F

I would definitely recommend Grand Rapids Oral Surgery and Dr. Billups. They eased my anxiety and were very informative. I received a call the day after my biopsy to check on how I was doing, which I thought was great!

Patient Review By Lori W

There is no way to thank Dr Panek and his staff for all the work, that was done for me. I hope sometime in the future I can pay it forward, to some one else. Thank you so very much. And to the girl who handled that huge camera, that took the finished pictures, great job!!!

Patient Review By Jamie L

To say that I was terrified to have my two impacted lower wisdom teeth removed at the age of 34 is a gross understatement. My anxiety was through the roof and despite my fear, the staff and doctor made me feel so incredibly comfortable throughout the entire process. I cannot thank them enough for the professional, kind manner with which they treated me while doing their job so effortlessly! Before I knew it I was done and on my way home. Thank you all for making this a smooth, experience for someone who is always so plagued with anxiety! I highly recommend this office!

This is my second extraction and implant with Dr. Panek. Both procedures were quick and pain-free. Dr. Panek has had a lot of experience with these procedures, and it shows! I highly recommend him and his courteous staff.

Patient Review By Jim M

I am extremely impressed by the entire experience. I felt very supported prior to, during and after my procedure. Dr. Noodhoek and all staff worked very hard to attend to my care. I was provided options for pain management and given excellent information related to after care and the healing process. I would definitely recommend this practice to friends and family.

Patient Review By Lloyd L

It has been 2 weeks now and my pain is going away. Again i am very thankful to Doctor Panek and staff for taking care of me and following up on my surgery. Also for giving a little break on the cost. Don't know if it was a Veteran discount but this old Army Veteran is grateful.
