Grand Rapids Dentist Staff - North Park Family Dental
For over 50 years this office space on the corner of North Park Street and Monroe Avenue has been occupied by a dentist. Dr. Robert Dame purchased the practice in October of 1994. A lot has changed in dentistry over those 50 years but our commitment to our patients and the community in which we practice has not.
North Park Family Dental exists to meet the oral health needs of our patients. We very much consider this a privilege and one that we do not take for granted.
I hope you’ll check out the rest of our site, especially our staff page. They are North Park Family Dental’s greatest asset. I am very blessed to be able to work with such a wonderful group of people who truly care about our patients as individuals.
If what you see here looks like the kind of office you’d like to be a part of, give us a call and schedule an appointment. If you do I’ll make you three promises:
- We will always do our best to welcome you and treat you as we would a guest in our home.
- We will always give you an open, honest assessment of your oral health.
- You will never be pressured into receiving any treatment that you do not want.
I would like to thank you for taking the time to visit our site. It is our hope that it will give you a taste of what our office is like.
All of us at North Park Family Dental look forward to meeting you very soon!
