Dr. Christopher Justema is a native of Grand Haven, MI. Dr. Justema attended Michigan State University's Lyman Briggs College. He graduated with honors in 2007 with a Bachelor's of Science degree in Human Biology. While at MSU, he observed a dentist in East Lansing for over 120 hours and became very passionate about dentistry. It became clear that dentists do not just repair teeth. A dentist improves their patient’s oral health, their smiles, and in many cases their self-esteem

While in dental school, he was involved with school organizations and participated in the Oral Cancer Walk, Give Kids a Smile, and Special Olympics: Special Smiles.
Following graduation from dental school, Dr. Justema moved back to West Michigan to practice dentistry for 5 years. He worked at two dental practices. One office provided family and cosmetic dentistry while the other provided emergency dental care.
Continuing education is a top priority for Dr. Justema in order to provide the best care for his patients. He is currently a member of the following professional organizations and attends seminars regularly to improve his skills.
