Dr. Christopher E. VanDeven, DDS
I was born and raised in Michigan. My mother was a dental hygienist. She encouraged me to become a dentist, and for once I actually listened!
I received my undergraduate degree at Hope College, where I would eventually meet my wife. I attended dental school at the University of Michigan. After dental school I completed my residency in pediatric dentistry at the University of Maryland. After finishing my residency I spent one year completing a fellowship in public health dentistry at the Howard Co. (MD) health department, treating children without health or dental insurance. We knew that we wanted to come back to West Michigan to start a family, and I was very fortunate to meet and begin working for Dr. Aimee.
My wife and I have four beautiful children: 3 girls and a boy. Mostly, I enjoy spending time at home with my family, but I also enjoy playing basketball, golf, running, biking, and reading. On most Saturdays in the fall, you can find me singing Hail to the Victors and cheering for my favorite team, the Michigan Wolverines.
I am very fortunate to have found such a wonderful profession, and I am very dedicated and motivated to provide the highest possible dental care that I can for your child.
