Sedation can be a safe option to help children through their dental appointment and complete necessary dental treatment that potentially could not be completed otherwise. Drs. Stephanie and Katie are also certified by the American Board of Laser Surgery for treatments using a laser, including frenectomies to relieve a lip or tongue tie if a child is having difficulty with feeding or speech development.

Our wonderful and experienced team takes pride in making all children feel comfortable, at ease, and welcome. What sets our office apart is the kind, gentle, and compassionate care we provide. Laughter, fun, and smiles are the goals of each visit. As parents ourselves, we understand that our children are the most precious people in the world. We built our practice around the needs of children and take our roles as members of your child’s healthcare team very seriously.

Education is the focus of our practice, which is why our Board-certified doctors feel it is important to take their time getting to know each patient and their family. We value parental involvement and believe that with the right approach, parents and guardians can enhance the positive experience for their child.

Drs. Aimee, Chris, and Jessica believe in minimally invasive dentistry to reduce treatment time and costs, whenever possible. We do offer sedation dentistry but pride ourselves in our outstanding behavior management skills. Our office utilizes the highest standards of care and the most up to date, evidence-based techniques and materials available. Most importantly, each child is treated in the absolute safest manner possible.

  1. Hudsonville Dental worked miracles with my daughter. She had extensive work done and they were amazing at getting her to sit still for almost 1 1/2 hours!

  2. I am stunned that Dr. Heather (Mallory-May) of Breton Gardens dentistry wasn’t at the top of the list. She is simply amazing. Kids with dental fears? See her.

  3. We have tried one in Grandville, but are so happy to drive right past it to Hudsonville Family Dentistry. One of my girls used to have to be pulled from the car to go in. Hudsonville Family is far more respectful to children and their bright smiles are always warm and welcoming!!!
