Van Haren Dentistry
Grand Rapids, MI
Van Haren Dentistry was founded in 2007 when Dr. Ryan Van Haren purchased his practice from a retiring dentist. The business grew through acquisition requiring Ryan to begin looking for new space. While visiting a friend at Oral Surgery Associates, Dr. Van Haren noticed an available suite in the building that was about the size he needed. This multi-tenant, class-A medical facility is currently home to Oral Surgery Associates, Foot & Ankle Specialists, Mercy Health, and now, Van Haren Dentistry.
Dr. Van Haren’s goal was to design and build a modern dental office where he could provide more complex procedures and aesthetic dentistry. The office includes five operatories, a consultation room, staff breakroom, and photography room for digital smile design. The beautifully designed space, along with new, state-of-the-art dental equipment and updated technology, complete Ryan’s vision. Today, the staff enjoys nearly 2,500 square feet of efficiently laid-out space in a highly visible location at 2144 East Paris Avenue.
The build-out included a mixture of LVT and carpet tile flooring with acoustical ceilings and radius drywall bulkheads. Patients immediately notice the pleasing color palette, attractive barn doors, and unique wood walls that create a comfortable, inviting environment. The coffee/refreshment station features large white tiles accented by wall wash lighting. First Companies completed the work on time and came in under budget – always striving to minimize disruption to other tenants during construction.
“I contacted several of First Companies’ previous customers and all highly recommended them for the job. They spoke of the company’s integrity, honesty and ability to get the job done. I was very comfortable they would do a good job for me. I would highly recommend First Companies based on my experience. They were extremely organized and efficient as well as up front about what to expect throughout the construction process. It all played out as they said, and the office turned out extremely well through their leadership.”
