Dr. Kemmer is very excited about joining the Jenison Family Dentistry team in serving the city of Jenison and the surrounding communities. Born and raised in Bay City, Michigan, she received her Bachelor of Science degree in chemistry at Saginaw Valley State University and her Doctor of Dental Surgery degree from the University of Detroit Mercy School of Dentistry.
From there she moved to California to complete an additional year of training through a General Practice Residency at Cedars Sinai Hospital in Los Angeles where she was the Chief Academic Resident. Through her residency she gained advanced training in anesthesiology and removable prosthodontics. She has taken advanced courses to
become an Invisalign Orthodontics provider, and she was very fortunate to be able to attend courses at the highly sought after Scottsdale Center for Dentistry where she worked to learn and master CEREC technology. She is a member of the American Dental Association, the Michigan Dental Association, the West Michigan District Dental Society, and a local dental Spear study club participant.Being able to use her special gift of dentistry to serve others brings much joy to Dr. Kemmer, as she actively seeks out different opportunities to do so. She has volunteered as a part of a dental mission trip to Honduras, has been able to participate in multiple states with the Give Kids a Smile Day – where thousands of underserved children receive free oral health services – and most recently has been able to help fellow Michigan residents through the MDA’s Mission of Mercy event. Her giving goes beyond dentistry as she was a mentor to a girls youth soccer team during her time in California and is currently involved in God’s Kitchen here in Grand Rapids. She looks forward to getting more involved with the local community and finding ways to serve those in need.
Dr. Kemmer loves to remain active and is so excited to get back into winter activities! Enjoying nearly all sports, she especially loves soccer and played on the women’s varsity soccer team in college. She also enjoys yoga, reading, spending time with loved ones and all of the wonderful things Michigan has to offer.
Dr. Kemmer is committed to educating you about your oral healthcare and making you feel welcome in our office. She loves working with patients of all ages and can’t wait to serve you at Jenison Family Dentistry!
