My name is James, and I would like to pass on information and experiences both my wife and I have had being patients of Dr. Mulder. My wife and I have been married for 30 years with 3 children and 5 grand children. I feel that we have had many experiences dealing with doctors, dentist, and hospitals to pass on opinions that may be helpful to others. We have been under the care of Dr. Mulder for 3 years and during that time we have been amazed on the advancements of dentistry. From the scheduled checkups, the early stages of cavities, even to the most intricate procedures of TMJ that my wife has had done the past year.I must say, being a doctor is a very noble profession, with many different avenues of interest. My personal opinion is, there are many doctors with many talents, but there are really a few healers.Dr. Mulder is a healer! His 30 plus years is a testament in it self. He is aware of the advancements of his trade, but what sets him apart is the patients physical and mental state days after the procedure is completed. The office helps the patients and are aware of of their anxieties that some people do have. My wife is one of many that needs extra attention even for the simple cleaning.Example, medication is prescribed the day before our visit. The room and staff are waiting in the examining room so when she arrives the procedure starts and efficiently ends then we leave. Any additional information is followed up the next day. Needless to say this is why we appreciate Dr. Mulder and his supported team here in Grand Rapids.I hope our experiences with Dr. Mulder and team will help any person looking for a very good dentist for themselves or their family.

I've just had dentures made and installed by this group and wanted to say these guys are excellent. I wasn't at all ready to need dentures but because of other health issues I had to. I was made a lot more comfortable with the idea by all the people I talked with here and found they were kind and patient and definitely know their stuff. The dentures actually look very much like my teeth did back a few years when they were healthy. That's amazing to me as some of them were missing! I wondered if they would just look like they came of a cooky cutter kind of process where they looked like they were made to look the same for everyone, but I'm happy they look like my own. And the first set went in right after extractions were done, fit well and had no discomfort from them. Don't know if that is true for every case, but mine fit very well right away. So I looked better right away! That goes a long way for the ego pain! And they welcomed me to call any time for an adjustment if they do start to hurt or get loose as the swelling goes down and they will see me that day. I can tell they will be there for me through the six months it takes till I can have the permanent set put in and then after that I have no worries about the follow up care on those. So, EXCELLENT care! And thanks to all the staff who are professional and very good at what they do while paying very close attention to my case as an individual.

WOW! First of all, I'd like to say how disheartened I am to read such negative reviews on our daycare center! Our kids have been going to this center since birth and I appreciate all they have done (and continue to do) for our kids and family. As much as I would love to be a stay-at-home mom, it just isn't an option for us. As many working parents can agree, deciding on who will spend more time with your children than you do; is understandably one of the most difficult choices we have to make. We want to ensure our children feel loved, while having fun and learning through play/discovery. The staff at EDWE treat our children like their own family =0)The environment at Every Day Wonders is very loving and comfortable. As a parent I can appreciate the daily routines and structure that is provided to ensure stability, while not feeling to regimented. Whether you need childcare for traditional or non-traditional hours, EDWE is more than flexible and accommodating regarding availability (even open on the weekends and until 11:30pm!) They even offer special “Slumber Parties” or Date Nights for the parents; especially around holidays-ie: Black Friday/New Year’s Eve etc. I hope you find this review helpful because I know exactly how hard of a choice this is to make. I will continue to recommend EDWE to friends, family, co-workers or anyone looking for a daycare center!

I am very happy with the daycare services that EDWE has provided for my children for the past 2+ years. I was immediately comforted with their open engaging atmosphere - lots of colors, activities, and happy kid sounds. I was even more impressed with the learning curriculum that they have incorporated into their classrooms. My son will be leaving for kindergarten soon and is completely ready for the academics! I truly hated not being able to stay at home with them, and it was important for me to find a place where they were not just another kid or number. I have been so grateful that their teachers invest so much of their time, effort, and love into helping my children grow up well rounded and loved. Miss Donna and Miss Kelly - You guys are AWESOME! While most of my experience has been positive, there have been a few bumps along the way. Anytime you have a brand new daycare starting out - there are bound to be a few hiccups with new software and new policy. I was actually very impressed with how well the owner, Cara, and director, Julie, handled all the changes and policies. Anytime I had trouble, I just talked to them. They actively listened to the concerns and then addressed them quickly. Overall, a great daycare and definitely worth checking out.

I've just had all my upper extractions done by this group and wanted to say these guys are excellent. I wasn't at all ready to need dentures but because of other health issues I had to. I was made a lot more comfortable with the idea by all the people I talked with here, especially Mary in the front office who was very kid and patient in helping me understand the process. Evette, also in the front, is also friendly and knowledgeable. In fact I found the whole staff were kind and and definitely know their stuff.I have actually had extractions done here before and the dentist before as well as Dr. Carmody who did these the other day were both very caring and had the teeth out very quickly even with a couple of them being complicated. I felt calmed and confident in their care. Dr. Carmody and his tech Michelle understood my other health problems and made special accommodations for that which made a huge difference. So, EXCELLENT care! And thanks to all the staff!

Hello Judy and Dr. Mulder, I wanted to write a note of appreciation of your wonderful work in helping me with my sleep apnea. As you'll recall I was referred to you by Dr. Madala from the Mercy Health Sleep Clinic. The two sleep tests that she had performed on me indicated 32 to 37 incidences of awakening in each hour while using a CPAP. The purpose of the referral was to have a dental appliance custom made for me which would allow my breathing passage to open wider to improve my sleep. This was completed and the last tests only using the dental appliance and no CPAP machine showed only 4 incidences of awakening in an hour. As a result of this Dr. Madala has suggested that I only use the dental appliances and not the CPAP. I must say that I am certainly sleeping more soundly.Thank you sincerely for you help!

This is a response to snowraven2101/10/2013. She stated that our fees went up without notice and the current fee of $205 went to $208. This information is incorrect. We sent out notices of our rate increases 6-weeks before they were instituted explaining exactly what the fee was for. This information is also found in our contract for services.. The regular fee was $198 for her age group. Then we instituted an arts & science fee of $3, bringing her weekly total to $201 not $205 +$3. This fee stays right in the child's classroom. We have used this fee to bring in a magician, a puppeteer, and a story teller. We use this money to take field trips to the zoo and Children's Museum, the pumpkin patch, and other trips that get our young child out into the world to explore.

Childrens Garden Child Care & Learning Center
Wow -- place always feels, clean, cozy and like home. I can't say enough about it! I had two children in attendance for over 10 years. Not only did all of the staff show their love to my children, I also knew they cared about our family! The few concerns I had were taken care of very quickly! It really scares me how many parents are "so perfect" . I even tried another chain center because of convenience but quickly transferred back to Children's Garden. As we all know, there's always two sides to any situation so go meet the staff and check out the facility. They work together as a team a family! My children are who they are because of all the staff at Children's Garden.

Childrens Garden Child Care & Learning Center
Okay, I will start with positives. The facilities are nice and clean and in a nice location very close to Meijer's HQ.The problem is the lady that runs the place. You will be on a weekly basis signing papers and being lectured about her rules. It just isn't a loving environment for your child. Do not even think about going here if your child has any special diet or minor special needs. They are a lazy group, and save extra vacation day's because they will have you come get your child for the most minor things.I switched to Walker Child care and the experience has been wonderful.

GREAT 1ST VISIT FOR MY CHILDREN! It was their 1st time ever at a dentist office, and after seeing me get my teeth cleaned and x-rays done, they were fighting to go next! Loved that the ladies were so nice to them. I think the kids laughs filled the office! It really was a great time for their 1st visit to a dentist! After finding out I had cavities they worked with me to get me back in the next morning to fill them! THANK YOU ALL! Would totally recommend to others!!!
Tips & Advices
  • If a tooth decays and the nerves or pulp (soft internal tissue which helps teeth develop) become inflamed or infected
  • If a tooth is cracked or broken and nerves are exposed
This generally depends on any specific issues you wish to address with your teeth. There are toothpastes designed to whiten teeth, fight cavities, decrease sensitivity, prevent bad breath, resist gingivitis, and those specific to children (with lower fluoride content). There are also toothpastes that offer “complete” protection by combining aspects of many of the above toothpastes.
It’s recommended to get a professional cleaning at least two times per year.
  • Desensitizing toothpaste numbs the nerves in the teeth that can cause discomfort.
  • Mouth guard can protect against grinding teeth during sleep.
  • Fluoride treatment can be applied by dentists to sensitive areas to numb teeth and strengthen enamel.
  • Root canal can treat problems in a tooth’s core.
  • Surgical gum graft where a piece of gum tissue is removed from a section of the mouth to cover an exposed root.
Not everyone needs to have their wisdom teeth removed, but there are certain signs that can help you and your doctor determine if yours should be:
  • Wisdom teeth are pushing other teeth around, causing pain and misalignment
  • Cysts form around newly emerged wisdom teeth, causing jaw damage
  • Gums get inflamed and swollen, causing cavities and pain
  • Doctor determine from x-rays that wisdom teeth will cause problems in the near future
