Michigan’s first multi-specialty dental practice opens Grand Rapids location

By | Featured, Grand Rapids Blog Article, News & Announcements

After ten years of helping families smile along the Lakeshore, Smile Dental Partners is opening a new practice in Grand Rapids called Smile Cascade.

Since opening Smile Grand Haven in 2008, Dr. Darren and Paige Riopelle have been challenging the status quo of traditional dentistry with a high-quality, patient-centric, preventative approach. Today it is the only multi-specialty resource along the Lakeshore capable of comprehensive dental care from birth through adulthood.

The new Grand Rapids location on Cascade Road is home to three distinct specialties that are typically not found in one practice—Smile Cascade (adult and teen dentistry), Little Smiles (pediatric dentistry), and Smile Orthodontics.

“Our goal has been to provide a dental experience that is 180 degrees from what people expect,” explains Dr. Riopelle. “We combine a personal, friendly, and fun experience with state-of-the-art technology and a proactive approach to dental health.”

Smile’s patient-centric approach is evident throughout the new Cascade practice. Adults enjoy private exam rooms, convenient lunchtime appointments, and an adult family room equipped with wifi and coffee bar. For young patients, Little Smiles provides a child-friendly environment that starts with a life-sized tree and interactive games in the Little Smiles family room. Beyond that, kids enjoy an “underwater” exam room with a giant fish tank and flatscreen TVs above each child-sized exam chair.

“We go above and beyond to create a fun and positive experience for babies, toddlers, through adolescents,” explains Dr. Cristian Brutten, Little Smiles’ Pedodontist. “That first positive experience for young children is important to establish a good relationship with healthcare providers throughout their life.”

Making a visit to the dentist a positive experience for kids has been the inspiration for everything at the practice. Parents are invited to bring children as early as 1 year old to Little Smiles for a “chair ride” to help them feel comfortable with the environment before their appointment. The Little Smiles team visits local daycares and elementary schools for Dental Health Month to teach kids healthy dental habits and foster a positive relationship with healthcare providers. Little Smiles also provides special needs care and hospital dentistry services.

Smile Cascade is now open and accepting new patients of all ages.
