About Dr. Peter Zwier

For over 30 years, Dr. Peter J. Zwier has been providing a broad range of general and cosmetic dental services to Grand Rapids, meeting the needs of your whole family in one convenient location. Your oral health is extremely important to your body’s wellbeing, and a beautiful smile is a wonderful asset at any age.

The best approach is to start early and simply make it non-negotiable. The option is: Do you want to brush first or do you want to have mom or dad brush first? You can also find ways to make it fun. Our office has used a chewable tablet that you randomly give to the kids when they don’t expect it to see how well they’re brushing. Ask your hygienist for more information at your next six month cleaning appointment.
