Over 30 years ago, I became a patient of Dr. Jerry Mulder. I’ve always found him and his staff to be knowledgeable, honest, caring, and personable. Outside of being an excellent dental practice, the honesty and integrity are very apparent. Whenever I’ve made an appointment, due to a concern, procedures where never done unless needed. If a procedure was needed, it was done after an in-depth conversation covering all questions. In short, Dr. Mulder has great respect for his patients and their needs.
Today, I had my 6 month check up and cleaning. As usual, everyone was personable, friendly, and professional. Amy has been cleaning my teeth for a couple of years. She has all the wonderful qualities you’d expect from your Dental Hygienist.
Obviously, after all these years of being a patient, I’d definitely recommend Life of Smiles to anyone needing the variety of dental services that are offered.
Excellent team @ A Life of Smiles! Professional and Courteous
Amy is so gentle, it is a pleasure to come and get your teeth cleaned. Judy is always so anxious to fit me in on my time.
Once again you all impressed me with your insight, professional consideration, and exceptional treatment! Thanks and applause!
Tales of a Turncoat.
There are reasons why so many people dislike, fear and avoid dentists: bad memories of childhood visits, the antiseptic office spaces and smells, the buzzing, hacking, grinding sounds, the impersonalized invasion of one’s mouth – a sensitive and intensely personal place and really — lets just say it — the discomfort and pain.
I have been one of those people for my entire life. Although I always insured that my children received good dental care, I adopted a crisis management approach to my own which revolved around good personal dental habits (a euphemism for rigorous brushing, ahem) and professional intervention when needed. With each professional intervention my opinion on dentists in general was reinforced. But you can only food yourself for so long and in my sixth decade, well, the spaghetti stuck to the wall and I knew the ultimate crisis was close to hand.
I was a new transplant to Michigan and so I had to find a dentist. I googled. I whittled the list down to five or six options. I checked professional sites, read reviews.
I chose Jerry Mulder DDS and never looked back.
The office is warm and welcoming, a lovely space actually. Dr. Mulder is calm, measured and very, very good at what he does. The staff is a happy lot and seem to thrive in their work. There is also a strong culture of continuing education with the splendid result that patients can be assured that they’re receiving state of the art care.
As I was researching A Life Of Smiles, I read a review by a patient that said that since they had discovered Dr. Mulder and his daughter Dr. Allyson Mulder, they “actually ook forward to going to a dentist now”. I took this with a heaping grain of salt complimented by a large eye roll.
But now…now…I must confess that I don’t mind gong to THIS dentist, not one little bit.
And you should too!
As pleased as punched turncoat.
I had some serious TMJ problems which, because of unusual spinal problems, promised to get more serious–something, I assure you, I did not want. Both my splint (worn at night) and my orthotic partial work perfectly to keep my jaw aligned regardless of my spinal condition.. This is great because I still have more spinal issues to get through (and am working hard on them). So the dental science is really good. And everyone here is top notch–spirited, friendly, timely, available, and open to questions.
Dr. Mulder and his staff make going to the dentist a pain-free and enjoyable experience! Best dental care I’ve had.
I discovered I had TMJ in 1987. I was grinding my teeth at night while sleeping. I also was experiencing jaw pain, migraines, clicking and locking of my jaw as a result of my TMJ. I had surgery in 1988 to alleviate the pain. In 2000 I was able to receive a jaw reconstructive surgery. The surgery was a huge success until 2014 when I started having pain, migraines and could not chew my food. I went to see Dr. Mulder who began treating me with therapy and a neuromuscular orthotic designed to realign my jaw. I immediately felt relief and after the 2nd treatment, I could enjoy chewing food again! His treatment is working and I feel so much better. Thank you Jerry and your entire team for returning the pleasure of eating food back into my life and relieving me of all the jaw pain i was feeling.
After being diagnosed with sleep apnea and trying a CPAP and BiPAP I knew I needed another option. Dr. Mulder reduced my sleep apnea symptoms to be almost completely under control. I can sleep all night with my mouth guard and no more obtrusive machines. I cannot express how happy I am with what Dr. Mulder has been able to do for me. I would HIGHLY recommend to anyone!
I was diagnosed with severe sleep apnea in 2012. After no success with Bi-pap and CPAP therapy, I was referred to Dr. Jerry Mulder who fitted me with a sleep apnea mouth appliance. It had made a huge difference in my quality of sleep, I am finally able to wake up feeling well rested and my wife appreciates that I no longer snore! After almost giving up on being able to sleep well, I am very glad that I found Dr. Jerry Mulder and the whole Life of Smiles team who have all been very helpful and knowledgeable through the process.
