I am originally from Ojai, where I attended Nordhoff High School. I subsequently completed my undergraduate studies at UCLA before leaving the Southern California sun for the University of Michigan School of Dentistry. After dental school, I elected to stay in beautiful Ann Arbor and continue my training in Oral & Maxillofacial Surgery, as well as complete medical studies at the University of Michigan Medical School. It was during that time, that I met the love of my life, and we started our family. From there, I followed my passion and did a fellowship in Craniofacial Surgery and Pediatric Oral & Maxillofacial Surgery at the University of Pittsburgh and Children’s Hospital of Pittsburgh of UPMC. After finally completing my training, I began practicing in West Michigan, where I have been for the last 10 years. I have focused on dental implants, exodontia, orthognathic surgery, pediatric anesthesia, and cleft lip and palate surgery. I remain faculty at Michigan State University, and was the previous chair of Dentistry and Oral & Maxillofacial Surgery at Spectrum Health System, the largest hospital system in the state of Michigan. I am double board certified by the American Board of Oral & Maxillofacial Surgeons and the National Dental Board of Anesthesiology, and a Fellow of the American College of Surgeons. I make the promise to all of my patients that no one will be more knowledgeable of the current literature base, and that I will always practice cutting edge, evidence based dentistry and medicine. My patients deserve this. I happily bring with me my amazing wife Kelli, my daughter Colleen, and my son David. We are avid explorers of all that California has to offer, from the amazing hiking trails, to incomparable beaches. We are thrilled to be a part of this amazing community.
The epitome of modern dentistry, friendly, fast, efficient, and painless . Great staff, Amy in finance, Dr. Schaeffer, and dental assistant Deana were very friendly and helpful. All and all a great experience.
Everyone was so nice and helpful with all the dental care and billing information They make it so easy for us. Thank you so much!
Many years ago, after receiving intolerable and painfully substandard dental work from a competing office in the same area of town, I became literally panicked to get future care from any dentist. Then when things could not be put off any longer, I mustered up courage to set an appointment with a dental office that I had heard, had great personal service. To my amazement, they were able to calm my fears and expertly take care of my dental challenges with no problem. Needless to say, this was a great relief to me and preventative care is now back in my life. 🙂
No waiting, and the staff were friendly and professional. They have never tried to sell me work I didn’t need nor lie to me. This place is a rare gem among dentist offices.
Treated like an old friend! Love everyone there and have confidence in their work.
I’m not to fond of going to the dentist but all the staff there are AMAZING. The dentist talked me through my procedure and made me feel really comfortable.
Everyone at the front desk, the doctor and the rest of the staff were extremely friendly, professional, helpful and caring. I really felt comfortable being in your office. Thank you for making a dental office experience as pleasurable as possible.
