Your Dentist In Kalamazoo County

At the Sharp Smile Center, we create stunning and healthy smiles. Using cosmetic, general, and sedation dentistry, we can refine your appearance and restore your well-being. Our friendly team is proud to serve the Portage and Kalamazoo, MI, communities.


Sharp Smile Center has joined with the Crown Council Smiles for Life Campaign to generate funding for seriously ill children with disabilities and disadvantages. Each year, from March 1 to June 30, all of the proceeds from our teeth whitening procedures go directly to Smile for Life Foundation. As an additional incentive, each whitening recipient can undergo the procedure at a discounted rate.

A Practice Set Apart from Other Dentists

Going to the dentist can be less than enjoyable for many adults and kids, so we make it our mission to provide a comfortable, relaxing, and even fun experience for families in Kalamazoo, Portage, MI, and neighboring communities. When you choose us, you also get:

World-Class Dentistry

We are a general dentistry practice by name, but we provide extraordinary dentistry by profession. Our doctors have decades of experience and additional education in a number of dental specialties. Using cutting-edge technology and revolutionary procedures, our patients receive nothing short of the best in the industry.

A Comfortable Experience

We want your trip to the dentist to feel more like a day at the spa. Our office is full of luxury amenities, including a coffee bar, iPads, and heated massage chairs. We even offer sedation dentistry to help calm your nerves. If there is anything we can do to make you more comfortable, please just ask!

Comprehensive Care

Our dentists can perform a wide variety of cosmetic and restorative procedures from teeth whitening to porcelain veneers to dental implants. Because we have the training, technology, and experience to perform virtually all procedures on-site, your entire family can get the dental health care they need without ever leaving our office.

Top-of-the-Line Dental Technology

We make it a priority to offer the best technology in the dental industry at our Kalamazoo dental office. Our in-office technologies include computer-aided design and manufacturing (CAD/CAM), T-Scan™ digital occlusal analysis systems, and more. These systems help us give more accurate diagnoses, design precise restorations, and deliver better-looking results. 

Meanwhile, our technology increases the safety and success of many types of treatment. We proudly utilize the latest dental lasers to perform treatments in less time, causing less discomfort. Laser technology helps our dentists improve procedures like crown lengthening, gum contouring, frenectomies, periodontal therapy, removal of benign tumors, and treatment for cold sores and canker sores.

I feel fortunate to have found the Sharp Smile Center! Dr Sharp exudes warmth and caring and inspires confidence. He was a wonderful listener about both my immediate needs and where I hoped my future smile would be. I felt very much at ease throughout our visit. The facility itself is very nice and homey. And every person I interacted with was warm and personable. I am really looking forward to working with the Sharp Smile Center team to get my smile back! My experience so far has been a 10 out of 10. I'm sure I'll have more positive things to say as the work is performed.

When I see that Sharp Smile wishes me a Happy Birthday today. I realized how far I've come from the smile they donated to me after a severe assaults. 8 of my teeth were destroyed, on top, in front. Dr. Sharp and his staff treated me with dignity and kindness and fixed my smile. My granddaughter told me I had a pretty smile after they were finished and tears streamed down my face. Thank you! Dr. Sharp you changed my life. Forever Grateful! The best part is, his work is amazing. Its been about 3-4 years now. I couldn't have been blessed with a better cosmetic dentist.

Dental Implants Your Smile Deserves a Second Chance

Restore function and aesthetics to your smile with dental implants. In addition to correcting missing teeth with custom implant-supported restorations, implants improve your oral health by preventing bone recession. 

Thanks to advancements in dentistry and our state-of-the-art techniques, more patients than ever can qualify for implants. We happily accept financing through LendingClub® and CareCredit® to help you manage out-of-pocket costs.

Our implant posts are made of a material used by NASA.
Titanium alloys are lighter and stronger than steel, helping to ensure a long-lasting solution.
Our dentist, Dr. Sharp, has placed more than 1,000 implants with a 98% success rate! ​We carefully plan each treatment to minimize complications.

We Ensure Your Comfort With Sedation Dentistry 

Many patients struggle with anxiety at the dentist's office. Dr. Sharp explains why sedation truly helps.
"I have extensive dental anxiety and trauma, because of that have avoided getting much needed dental work to save my teeth for over 10 years. Sharp smile center was recommended to me from a friend and I am so grateful I found them. From the first appointment to yesterday, my procedure, everyone has been so amazing and warm. Amber, Dr C and Dr Sharp were gentle, kind, and so reassuring to me through every step. I will definitely be recommending them to everyone I know who is needing dental work. 10/10 recommend. Thank you guys for such a great care, it truly means the world to me and has helped my dental anxiety so much." chelsey banker
