your new smile - Shannon
your new smile - Shannon's before and after


Shannon was self-conscious about her smile. Following 10 months of braces, her new smile was completed with whitening and bonding techniques.


“I can hardly believe these teeth are mine! Smiling is now something fun to do. I hid my crooked teeth behind a half smile for many years. I never thought my teeth could look this nice and so quickly. My braces were on for only 10 months. The whole staff was helpful and encouraging through the process. It is great to be able to smile and not feel self-conscious. Thanks for making smiling fun!”

“Dr. Z actually changed my smile. They take the time to do it right… it feels like family there.”

He is one of the most genuine and caring people I have ever met. He is extremely knowledgeable and took the time to explain all my options and procedures fully. With his high level of expertise and attention to detail, Dr. Z crafted a work of art! I absolutely love my new smile! The end result far surpassed my expectation.”

your new smile - Petra's before and after


Petra was concerned with her lower teeth crowding relapse following braces as a teenager. As an adult she chose Invisalign, whitening and bonding to complete her new smile.


“I had crowding in my lower teeth and didn’t think I would get as good of a result with Invisalign as with traditional braces. I was completely wrong. Invisalign worked great and exceeded my expectations. I had a great smile in a few months with the added benefit of hardly anyone knowing I was using Invisalign. I could slip the trays on and off with ease and they were much more comfortable than I anticipated. I love my new smile!”

In the 8 months of going through getting my new smile, I lost 62 pounds and got rid of the ugly mustache. I now have a great smile and a whole new attitude. I highly recommend Dr. Z & H to all my friends, family and anyone who wants a new healthy smile. They take the time to do it right… it feels like family there.”

“Dr. Zuidema and the entire team at Zuidema and Hess are amazing people. I was very hesitant to pursue orthodontics because I was so embarrassed about my smile and didn’t know where to start. We developed a treatment plan that was based upon my needs, desires and the future of my oral health. I always felt welcomed and comfortable. I am SO happy with the final results — I can’t believe my new smile!”

I thought I would just have to live with the resulting grey color of my lower teeth for the rest of my life. Dr. Zuidema & Hess and their staff were able to whiten the teeth internally. What an improvement! I am getting married this summer and am so thankful that I can smile with confidence for the wedding photographer.”

I told him I wanted to be able to smile with confidence for my wedding. We knew that it was going to be close getting the work finished in time. I put my faith in [them], and two weeks before my wedding, the braces came off and I was able to smile, really smile, all day for my wedding.”
