Portage Family Dentistry

Do you need one trusted office for all of your family’s dental needs? Courtside Dental offers Portage family dentistry services for kids, adults and seniors. We know how important your smile is to you – it’s the backbone of your social interactions and possibly one of your best features! We’re here to care for your smile and improve it if you’re not completely satisfied with it.

Offering Personalized Care for Each Member of the Family

We may offer care for entire families, but each member receives individualized attention. With our family dentistry in Portage MI, each person is unique, and their mouths are, too! It’s not uncommon for one child to need braces, while another needs whitening treatments. Genetics do play a role in how strong the teeth are as well as how they are positioned, but there are many other factors, too. You can count on our Portage dental clinic to understanding your needs and put them first.

Friendly, Relaxed Family Dentistry in Portage MI

From the moment you walk into our office, we want you to feel at ease. We realize that the dentist can be an uncertain place, even for adults. Our Portage dental clinic has gone a long way to change the image of the traditional dentist. We have cozy seating, TVs for the kids and magazines for our patients to relax with. Our staff is always friendly and patient. Don’t hesitate to ask us questions whether it’s about our procedures, appointments or billing. We’ll find an answer for you.

Keeping Abreast of the Latest Technology

Courtside Dental provides restorative and cosmetic dentistry in addition to Portage family dentistry. It is our goal to keep abreast of new changes in technology so that we can always offer our patients the most advanced procedures. Dental veneers, for example, can be used to fix a wide range of problems, ranging from discoloration to cracked teeth to misalignment. Applying veneers is far less invasive compared to a crown. These are the types of procedures we strive to offer.

I have been coming to Courtside Dental for over 25 years. I have had nothing but positive experiences here. Both my parents and sister are patients here as well. They are professional, friendly, and extremely good at what they do.
Jason Kausrud

Dr. Paul of Courtside Dental, and his warm, kind staff are simply the best dental practice I have ever encountered.  Dr. Paul is a great example of what a dentist should be.  He takes the extra time to ensure your comfort and confidence, treating his patients like family.  The office is incredibly clean and when I have an appointment, I am always seen on time with little wait.

After almost 43 years practicing dentistry, I never thought I would find someone who I thought could do dentistry by my standards, my philosophy, or my compassion. But I did find it in Paul vanLonkhuyzen. I have complete confidence in his ability, business professionalism, working with our team, and most importantly, giving the best dental care to my patients. He is the best thing that happened to both Susan and I while I was looking towards my retirement. I could not be more blessed.
Dr. Tom Saewert, DDS

When I had my first consultation with Dr. Paul about my dental implants it just confirmed that this practice is the perfect fit for me. I have somewhat of a unique set of dental needs because I was born without two teeth, causing me to need dental implants. Being 25, working with a limited budget, but also being very particular about my teeth I wanted to make sure whichever dentist I chose would be a good fit. Dr. Paul did an excellent job explaining everything to me, communicating clearly, answering all of my questions and putting my mind at ease. During each visit he would always walk me through the process in a way that was easy to understand.

With the retirement of venerable Tom Saewert DDS from Courtside dental, I would like to express my congratulations and warm welcome to Dr. Paul vanLonkhuyzen, DDS for the smooth transition of the practice to his care.

The service I have since received has been overall excellent, precise and professional. I look forward to continuing to enthusiastically endorse courtside dental to other clients. I have great confidence in Paul’s expertise and professionalism and the kindness of his staff.

John Bradtke, MD

From the minute I walk in the door I am more than just another “set of teeth” at Courtside Dental. Everyone in the office goes above and beyond, always striving to put their patients needs first. Their friendly caring demeanor and sincere personalities are a breath of fresh air. Dr. Paul’s professional approach and knowledge are second to none. A serious fella with a great sense of humor who sometimes sings along with the radio. Performing his magic to make sure my mouth is a healthy happy mouth. He takes his time and he is a perfectionist because he knows his reputation is on the line when I am out there smiling away. I may be one of the few that seriously looks forward to going to the dentist, but I promise I speak from the heart.
