Two dentists opened a pediatric practice in the area.
Dr. Meghan Condit and Dr. Christy Vollmar last month opened Grand River Pediatric Dentistry in Jenison, at 7758 20th Ave.
The dentists offer preventative and restorative dentistry, as well as sedation dentistry, meant for patients with dental anxiety or phobia.
The owners completed their residency training together at Ohio State University. Each of their families later moved to West Michigan, and the two have been practicing at Cherry Health Services. They then decided to open a practice together, Condit said.
“We both have the same love for working with children, passion for education on oral health and have always worked well together,” Condit said. “We are excited to be able to create an environment that is family-centered and child-focused where both parents and children can feel comfortable and safe.”
“Being mothers ourselves, we know each child is unique and deserves the very best care, so we always treat children as if they were our own.”
The space is 3,300 square feet with room for expansion in the future.
The space was most recently a fitness gym, so renovations were needed.
Ada-based Dixon Architecture was the architect on the project. Grand Rapids-based First Companies was the contractor on the project. Kentwood-based Midway Dental was the equipment supplier.
The practice is in-network with Delta Dental and accepts most major forms of insurance.
Both doctors are board-certified pediatric dentists and are diplomates of the American Board of Pediatric Dentistry.
Condit’s dental degree is from the University of Michigan School of Dentistry. She also has a master’s degree from Ohio State University with research focused on dental trauma in children.
She earned her undergraduate degree with honors in biology and economics from the University of Michigan.
Vollmar completed dental school at The Ohio State University. During her residency, she completed a master’s degree with research focused on dental injuries in pediatric patients. Her bachelor’s degree in chemistry is from Miami University in Oxford, Ohio.
