It’s never too late for a great smile

Ken Hoevemaar's smile transformation

GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (WOOD) It’s never too late to make changes to improve your life. Those changes may include your appearance. Dr. Betsy Bakeman helped Ken Hoevemaar get a new smile with her work in cosmetic and restorative dentistry.

Ken was referred to Dr. Bakeman by his general dentist in 2006. He had a lot of wear and breakdown in his teeth. Ken decided not to start treatment then, but came back in 2010 when his condition was even worse. Dr. Bakeman looked at all aspects of Ken’s dental health to develop a plan to give him a new smile.

Ken says he used to train himself to speak different so people couldn’t see his teeth. Now he is more confident with his new smile.

Contact Dr. Bakeman to see how you can have the best smile. Call (616) 940-0481 or visit
