New Patients & Emergencies Welcome!

Giving Back

We are a Grand Rapids dentist office with a lot of heart. Each year, we dedicate time and energy to help our troops overseas and those in need. Giving back to our community is important to our mission as a family dental practice.

How We Give Back

Smiles from the Heart

We understand that not everyone is able to afford quality dental care, which is why we donate our dental services once every year. Patients are able to choose a free dental cleaning, filling, or tooth extraction. The event is open to the public and services are available on a first-come first-serve basis. Our dentists, hygienists, assistants, and front office staff all pitch in to make the event a success for those who are less fortunate.

Last year’s event our team was able to donate $24,875 in free dentistry and brought smiles to 70 West Michigan residents (36 Cleanings | 27 Extractions | 11 Fillings)!

We can’t believe that over the last 9 years our office and sister practices have donated a total of $321,000 in free dentistry to 1,083 individuals.

Our next event will be held on Friday, May 19, 2023. If you are in desperate need of dental care we would love to lend a hand at this year’s event! To learn more about our upcoming free dental day please visit: 2023 Smiles from the Heart Event Page

Halloween Candy Buyback

Kids! Sell your unwanted Halloween Candy to our office and support our troops.
At Contemporary Family Dental we host a Halloween Candy BuyBack Program for the community. The event is scheduled every year on November 1st from 3:00-5:00 p.m. How it works: Kids can bring in any extra unwanted Halloween Candy and we will buy it back from them for $1.00 per lb (up to 5 lbs.). We then ship all the candy to an organization called Operation Gratitude, which then ships it to our troops overseas. Kids are always welcome to write notes or draw pictures for our troops, which we send along with the candy.


To schedule your appointment with one of our Grand Rapids dentists, call Contemporary Family Dental at (616) 209-3969.
