Kristen M. Veltema, D.M.D.
Dr. Kristen Veltema grew up in Hastings, MI and, after spending several years away to pursue her career as a general dentist; she has come back to West Michigan and recently settled in the Holland area. She is excited for her future of being close to friends and family, and to serving the dental needs of the people of West Michigan.

Kristen spent four years completing her Bachelors of Science degree in Human Biology at Michigan State University in East Lansing, MI. She then traveled to the University of Kentucky in Lexington, KY to complete four years of dental school to earn her degree of Doctor of Dental Medicine. Kristen chose the University of Kentucky due to its small class size that allowed for more direct contact with professors and patients and believes that she had an excellent educational experience.

Following dental school, Kristen elected to complete one year of additional training through Indiana University’s General Practice Residency program in Indianapolis, IN. This program focused on “hospital dentistry” which is geared toward treating medically, physically, and mentally compromised patients. This year of residency allowed Kristen to gain additional mentoring and guidance on how best to meet a broad range of patients’ needs.

Kristen strongly believes in treating each patient as an individual and tailoring treatment to meet his or her needs. She believes in comprehensive dental care which includes thorough exams and attention to detail so that each patient can be aware of his or her oral health and the options that he or she has to improve or maintain it.

Dr. Kristen Veltema believes that prevention is the best approach to dental care and she will inform you of anything that you can be doing to improve your oral health prior to help minimize problems from occurring.

Kristen’s favorite aspect of dental care is “cosmetic” dentistry. She loves to help patient’s improve their smiles in any way and is meticulous with the appearance and quality of her care. Dr. Veltema was involved in athletics and community service throughout her academic career. Kristen enjoys spending time with family, many outdoor activities, and giving back to the community whenever possible.

Dr. Veltema is a member of the:
American Dental Association (ADA)
Michigan Dental Association (MDA)
West Michigan District Dental Society (WMDDS)
Academy of General Dentistry (AGD)
