GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. -- Great Lakes Dental Care is dentist office in Grand Rapids that takes not just oral health, but complete health very seriously.

As a part of the healthcare community in West Michigan, they feel they have a responsibility to bring awareness to things that can affect everyone's lives.
