"Our Practice Philosophy is to provide the best care to our patients and always to treat them with respect and concern for their well-being."

Our Practice History

Our practice is located in the historic Pere Marquette Train Station. It was built in 1927 after the original 1870 station burned. The last train to serve our station left in 1971. It was abandoned for 27 years, and was only saved from the wrecking ball by a neighbor who refused to let the railroad knock it down. We purchased the building, and restored it as closely to the original as we could, right down to the font on the signs..

Inside the office you will note the décor of the 1920’s, but the technology of today. We are committed to staying current in both training and technology, but one thing that sets our office apart is our staff. You will not find a more caring, capable group of people anywhere.

Drs. Mountford, Ruszkowski, & Andaloro

Our Grand Haven dental practice philosophy is to provide the best care to our patients and to always treat them with respect and concern for their well-being.
