Mission Statement

Our practice is working together to realize a shared vision of uncompromising excellence in dentistry.
To fulfill this mission, we are committed to:
  • Listening to those we are privileged to serve.
  • Earn the trust and respect of patients, profession, and community.
  • Exceed your expectations.
  • Ensure a creative, challenging and compassionate professional environment.
  • Strive for continuous improvement at all levels.

Friendly, Caring Atmosphere

The patient experience is not just about getting the right treatments; it is also about knowing your oral healthcare provider is truly invested in your needs. The Smile Center helps patients feel comfortable seeing a dentist by building personal relationships with each individual we care for.

This friendly approach is apparent from the moment you walk into our Norton Shores dental practice, regardless if you are a new patient or have been with us for decades. Our front desk staff is always happy to see you and will gladly assist you in filling out forms and making sure you are comfortable in the waiting room. You shouldn’t have to wait long, however, because we value your time and schedule your appointment to minimize any waiting. This is especially true if you have a dental emergency; Dr. Kuipers will see you as soon as possible.

Our dental hygienists and assistants carry over that friendliness as you move from the lobby to the operatory. Any care provided by our hygienists and dental assistants is gentle and respectful to make sure you are relaxed during treatment. Dr. Kuipers is just as caring, getting to know you and your health personally before every exam, cleaning, or other treatment to ensure you receive the exact care you need.

Keeping Up with Dental Technology

As with any medical field, dentistry goes through significant changes when a new technology or treatment technique is developed, tested, and approved for use. Dr. Kuiper keeps pace with the latest in dental technology because he wants you to receive the highest quality of care possible.

Specifically, The Smile Center takes advantage of the technology that allows us to offer single-visit dental crowns. By using the Planmeca PlanScan® Lab and associated milling device, Dr. Kuipers can produce and place a porcelain crown that restores the structural health of a tooth. Our practice also uses diagnostic tools, from digital x-rays to the VelScope® oral cancer screening tool, to create the most accurate images of your smile.
