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.

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.

Dr. Noordhoek made having an extraction (#31 way in the back) almost a pleasant experience. She's patient, efficient, friendly, attentive and highly skilled. I recommend her without reservation.

Patient Review By Jane L

It took me 2 referrals to get to this point, beginning with my own dentist, then for a possible root canal which couldn't be done..then to Oral Surgery. I am still in the healing process, but after discomfort and bleeding issues the first day, I am following my instructions and doing great. My husband called the afternoon of the procedure because I couldn't get the bleeding to stop, using the gauze pads I'd been given. My husband left a message but we received a call back in a very short time. The old tea bag trick worked, interesting because we had both heard of that but didn't think of it. We appreciate the followup and would certainly recommend Center for Oral Surgery to our friends and family. Thank you for your professionalism and caring attitude

Patient Review By Darlene B

I was very nervous about this extraction. I knew the tooth was cracked and there was some infection in the gum. But everyone was so nice. Tried to make me feel comfortable. Follow-up phone calls were so-o appreciated. Discharge instructions were very thorough and easy to understand. I am now not so nervous about having the implant put in.

Patient Review By Dan S

What a wonderfully diverse and talented team of surgeons...and staff too! And they are every bit as friendly as indicated on the website. I live in Caledonia, but eagerly (yes, even for an extraction) drove to Plainfield and Five Mile for my two office visits. I had never been there or met anyone on the team before my visits, but I HIGHLY recommend them now!

Patient Review By Chadwick B

Dr. Panek performed wisdom teeth extractions for my wife and daughter, and he recently extracted the remains of a tooth for me and replaced it with an implant. We all have had a great experience with Dr. Panek! In each case, the procedure itself was painless and recovery time was short and without complications. Our experience with him and his staff was overwhelmingly positive!

Patient Review By Kayla V

Dr. Noordhoek is an amazing doctor! Her personality is amazing. I was a bit nervous before my procedure, but as soon as she entered the room, I knew I would be alright. She is very calming and relaxing. My coworker said the exact same thing! The staff was also very nice, kind, and understanding. They treated me very well. I would not be afraid to return again. They are very welcoming and I could have not had a better experience. .

Patient Review By Annette V

Dr. Van Heukelom did a great job, my tooth was extracted before I knew it, a relaxing environment which really helped with my nerves, no swelling or bruising, minimal pain and bleeding, instructions were well written out and easy to understand. Dr. Van Heukelom and her team were awesome! Very impressed with the quality of care I received, I highly recommend going to The Center for Oral Surgery and Dental Implants.
