Dr. James Strikwerda earned his dental degree from the School of Dentistry at University of Michigan in 1953.

At Strikwerda and Gardner Family Dentistry, we emphasize the importance of preventive dental care, and take important steps to help avert the development of tooth decay and gum disease before they start. We encourage biannual checkups for routine teeth cleanings and comprehensives examinations, to keep your teeth cavity free from the start and to detect oral health conditions early on, when they are easiest to treat. We make dental care engaging and informative, especially for our youngest patients, who are just establishing the foundation for a lifetime of optimal oral health. For pediatric patients, we also recommend dental sealants and fluoride treatments, which are proven to reduce the risk of cavities in children.
To enhance the appearance and function of your teeth, we offer cosmetic and restorative treatments. A beautiful smile contributes to a positive self-image and can be an asset in your social and professional life. Your highly skilled dentist combines the art and science of dentistry to give you a set of pearly whites you’ll be proud to share with the world. Procedures such as teeth whitening or porcelain veneers, can help you achieve the dazzling white smile of your dreams. Teeth whitening removes stains to reveal a smile that is several shades brighter. Porcelain veneers can transform chipped, discolored, undersized or misaligned teeth to give you an attractive, harmonious smile. When missing teeth affect your ability to smile, speak and eat with confidence, we offer the most effective and cosmetically pleasing methods of tooth replacement. Our advanced methods of tooth replacement include fixed bridges and customized, natural looking dentures.
