A Word from Dr. Berghuis:
I seek to form long lasting dental relationships with both my patients and their families. I believe patient education is essential to every dentist-patient relationship to not only maintain oral health, but also trust.
My team and I provide customized, comprehensive care in a state of the art environment to each and every one of our patients. I continue to stay on top of the latest advances in dentistry through continued education to provide excellent care to each patient. Our goal is to make every dental visit as comfortable and painless as possible.
It is important that my patients are educated on every treatment option available to them to make an informed decision. I want my patients to feel that they are the “driver” of their treatment plan. It is my job, as their dentist, to assist them on the road to a healthy, beautiful, smile.
Service & Volunteering:
It’s important to me to give back to my community and the dental field through volunteering. I have been involved with Give Kids a Smile Day, Mission of Mercy and many school oral health programs in the area.

I grew up in southwest Michigan, more specifically Gull Lake and completed my undergraduate studies at Western Michigan University – Go Broncos! My husband, a Wisconsinite who bleeds green and yellow, and I met in college. We moved to southeast Wisconsin after undergrad to complete my dental education at Marquette University where I soon fell in love with the cheese-head state. Together, we have two small children, our son Landon and daughter Kinsley. We have a rescue black lab mix, Riley. Outside of dentistry, I am an avid football fan whom enjoys hiking, travelling, yoga, and spending time with family and friends.
