Meet our doctors!
Dr. Draft and his family
Dr. Draft has been practicing dentistry in Grandville for almost 25 years and now also practices in Montreal Quebec with his wife, Dr. Corinne D’Anjou. He has 5 children with his blended family and travels between Canada and the United States monthly to provide dental care to patients in both countries.
Dr. Draft enjoys being a general dentist because he can provide a wide range of services. From small fillings to root canals and extractions, to very complicated full mouth reconstructions and implants, Dr. Draft enjoys being challenged on a daily basis by the specific needs each patient has. Dr. Draft is very comfortable working on patients of all ages, from the youngest teeth to the oldest teeth.
Dr. Draft credits an early fascination with building model trains to his beginnings in dentistry. He quickly developed the skills necessary to work on small objects and an excellent attention to detail. Applying these skills and a strong desire to help people, he soon geared his schooling towards the goal of becoming a dentist. He attended Hope College and graduated with his B.S. in Chemistry. From there, he was accepted to the University of Michigan School of Dentistry and graduated in 1998 in the top 20% of his class.
In 2018 Dr. Draft became a board certified Forensic Odontologist with the American Board of Forensic Odontology. He uses his dental skills to identify human remains, providing dental age estimations, and provide analysis of bitemark evidence. Dr. Draft is the chief Forensic Odontologist for the Kalamzaoo County Medical Examiner and also provides forensic services for the Laboratoire de sciences judiciaires et de médecine légale (LSJML) in Montreal Quebec.
Dr. Draft is a Fellow of the American Academy of Forensic Sciences, a member of the American Society of Forensic Odontologists, the Disaster Mortuary Operational Response Team, and the Michigan Mortuary Operational Response Team.
In 2010, Dr. Draft was honored by the Grandville-Jenison Chamber of Commerce as the Small Business Person of the Year Award recipient.
Another of Dr. Draft’s passions is using his skills to help others who are less fortunate. Dr. Draft was asked by a local non-profit Christian based organization, Partners, to help organize and start a dental clinic in Werkok, Southern Sudan. In 2008, Dr. Draft was asked to join the PCC board and traveled to Sudan on an annual basis for several years delivering much needed dentistry to a population who has survived many years of civil war, famine, and disease. Dr. Draft currently makes annual trips to Guatemala and has recently returned to Kenya for several mission trips.
Dr. Hoitenga has a great passion for dentistry. He attended Ferris State University for his Bachelors of Biology degree. After graduating he received his doctorate degree at The University of Michigan School of Dentistry and graduated in 1998. After receiving his license to practice, Dr. Hoitenga continued at University of Michigan as a clinical instructor in the dental department.
He practiced in Alpena, MI then moved to Ann Arbor where he had his previous dental practice and taught clinical dentistry at University of Michigan.
Dr. Hoitenga is a member of the American Dental Association and the Michigan Dental Association. He was also nominated to be a member of the Pierne Fauchard Academy; an honor society of Dentists.
Outside of being a dentist, Dr. Hoitenga is a U of M football fanatic as well as Seattle Seahawks fan. He spends his free time in the outdoors, sports, and on home projects and spending time with his family.
