My experience getting an implant was amazing, The care, speed and innovation was only matched by seeing the joy in which Dr. Leitner and his team do their work. Best dentist I have ever had, and the cost was literally half of the 2 other estimates I was given by other offices.

Dr John Leitner DDS

Founder

Grand Haven born and raised, followed by a roundabout way back. Time at MSU, a bicycle trip that ended in Montana with me working in a dental lab and a D.D.S. from University of Michigan in 1982, practicing in Pennsylvania and then coming back home to take over my father’s dental practice in 1990.

My priority is always patient relationships. I have an equal commitment to learning the latest techniques and investing in helpful technology, at no added cost to patient care. My office was the first to embrace enhanced microscopic dentistry, one of the first to offer complete digital records, and laser treatments. The world is constantly changing and advancing, and I believe continuing education combined with flexibility is important in offering excellent care for my patients.  When I’m not caring for patients you will find me swimming, biking and enjoying time with my family.

Grand Haven born and raised, Over 35 years experience, Grand Rapids CC RDH grad, 5 years with Dr. Leitner. Being part of a local dental office really allows me to get to know patients and their needs over time. I value the relationships and especially love when the person in my chair for a cleaning before a prom is the same little one first jumped up in the chair as a toddler. I also enjoy being hiking, camping and kayaking with my family.
