Meet Our Doctors

Dr. Andy and Dr. Katie are passionate about the field of dentistry and the opportunity to work with patients in the West Michigan area. They are a husband and wife team who met during their education at the University of Michigan School of Dentistry. They were married near the shores of Lake Leelanau in 2008 and started VH Dental together in January, 2010.

Dr. Andy Van Haren, DDS and Dr. Katie Van Haren, DDS

Dr. Andrew M. Van Haren, DDS

Before he began VH Dental, Dr. Van Haren spent four years working with various dentists in the West Michigan area, becoming proficient in the latest, exciting procedures in dentistry and specializing in patient prevention education. Dr. Van Haren received both his undergraduate degree and Doctorate of Dental Service degree from the University of Michigan. He is a member of the American Dental Association (ADA), the Michigan Dental Association, and the West Michigan Dental Association. Dr. Van Haren strives to make his patient's dental experience an enjoyable one (often with humor) and continues his education in the dental field to stay abreast of the latest advancements in dental care. In addition to his practice, he spends time volunteering on a mobile dental unit that provides care to underprivledged children in schools across West Michigan.

Outside dentistry, Dr. Van Haren is an avid golfer, skier, and outdoor enthusiast. A native of Grand Rapids, he likes any time spent with his and Katie's two dogs – Zoey and Brady – and enjoys opportunities to be around family and friends.

Dr. Katie M. Van Haren, DDS

Dr. Van Haren also received her Doctorate of Dental Service degree from the University of Michigan after attending Central Michigan University for her bachelors in science degree. She honed her skills working with prestigious dentists in Grand Rapids and Big Rapids before starting the practice with Andrew. She has exceptional clinical skills and a passion for helping patients understand the value of every day dental maintenance and care. Dr. Van Haren is also a member of the American Dental Association (ADA), the Michigan Dental Association, and the West Michigan Dental Association. She is dedicated to keeping up with the latest techniques in dentistry and known among patients for her warm smile and friendly approach.

Dr. Van Haren grew up in Merrill, Michigan – a farming community located in mid-Michigan – and spent summers helping out with her family's ice cream shop and farm. When not practicing, she joins Andrew as an avid golfer, cross-country skier and fan of the outdoors. She enjoys spending quality time with family and friends. Dr. Van Haren is also an excellent cook and baker (much to Andrew's pleasure!).
