Kalamazoo Smiles Provides Plenty of Reasons to Smile

Nothing is more important to me as a parent than seeing my children smile. Getting them to smile can sometimes be easy: a balloon, a new book, an ice cream cone, or going to their favorite place to play.

While getting them to smile may be easy, following proper dental care to keep that smile healthy can sometimes seem overwhelming. Kalamazoo Smiles, Dr. Schier and staff, are committed to providing the highest quality dental care available. Improving health, comfort, function, and esthetics for their patients remains their paramount goal.

Dr. Katherine Schier, D.M.D.

For over 30 years, Kalamazoo Smiles has provided state-of-the-art dental care. Centrally located in Kalamazoo, Dr. Schier and staff serve the entire southwest Michigan community with a complete range of dental treatment and care for toddler through adult age. 

Kalamazoo Smiles is accepting new patients. Call today to schedule an initial exam which will give you and your family time to get to know, and feel comfortable with the staff and have all of your dental questions answered. Or, submit your appointment request online.

    My kids love to have tickle time. They ask us almost every night before bed, especially our two youngest. I love it, the way the smile & laugh makes my heart so happy. They also really like to be surprised. Whether its it’s a trip to do something fun, or a special treat, or even just unexpectedly picking them up from school. They are always so happy that i try to do something often.

    We are a large family we feel like we’re always on the go so the 2 things that make my kids smile the most is when we do something together that is an activity as a family like a game or a hike. The next thing that makes them smile is 1 on 1 time with mom or dad, a time where we can listen to just them, their ideas and how their day went. I see some of the biggest smiles when they’re telling me their stories
