Dr. VanderHeide has been part of the West Michigan community his entire life. He received his undergraduate education at Calvin College in Grand Rapids, and attended dental school at the University of Michigan.
He began practicing dentistry in 2001, and built the new, state-of-the-art West Michigan Dentist office from the ground up in 2003.
When not in the office, he enjoys spending time outdoors with his wife and children, especially boating, skiing and a great round of golf.
"Earning my patients' trust and respect is rewarding to me, and I want to make each visit a positive one. It's a great feeling when someone comes in feeling apprehensive or afraid, and leaves saying, 'that wasn't so bad.' It's very satisfying to help people feel comfortable enough to get the treatment they really need."
