Our Story

Man Smiling In Dental Chair

Dr. Albert Wesley has 30 years of experience in the dental field, with a focus on the specialty of prosthodontics, a full-mouth restoration, and oral function. He was a member of a team of dentists that helped invent the Teeth-In-A-Day procedure. In 2018 he brought SplenDent Implant Center to the west side of Michigan. Our dentists specialize in implantology, full-mouth reconstruction, and fixed-bridge surgery, using the latest surgical techniques and the highest quality materials. Our commitment to excellence, quality patient care, and safety sets us apart from other implant centers throughout the state of Michigan.

Implant Dentistry You Can Trust

Dental implants improve the function of your teeth and help you look and feel your best. After decades of development and refinement, the revolutionary Teeth-In-A Day surgical technique enables our dentists and oral surgeons to place fixed teeth into a patient's mouth in a single day. Our team of dental professionals, nurse anesthetists, technicians, assistants, and administrative staff offer compassionate, personalized care in a welcoming environment. 

Our surgeons and dentists are proficient in a wide range of techniques and procedures and use top-quality tools and materials to improve your smile and oral health. Whether you are interested in full mouth reconstruction, a fixed bridge, or a single implant, we are committed to providing the quality care you deserve. We strive to make dental surgery as easy and as comfortable as possible, and your safety is a top priority.

Our Dental Implant Centers

Our state-of-the-art facility located in Norton Shores, Michigan is designed to provide top-notch dental implant care and treatment. We offer conscious sedation with nitrous oxide and IV sedation performed by a licensed nurse anesthetist. Our 3D imaging services such as cone-beam computed tomography and orthopantomography enable our dentists to evaluate the condition of your teeth and bone quickly and accurately and create a treatment plan tailored to your specific needs. Our office provide a soothing, calming environment and is equipped with medical-grade surgically clean air purifiers for your protection and comfort.

Our Services

We offer several long-lasting teeth replacement options, including:

Complete replacement with Teeth-in-a-Day - Missing or severely damaged teeth can have a significant impact on your quality of life, health, and emotional well-being.  This unique fixed prosthetic treatment stabilizes bone loss and enables you to smile, eat and speak with confidence. 

Single implants - A missing tooth can make it hard to chew, cause other teeth to shift or break, and lead to bone loss in the jaw. A single implant is placed and integrated into the jawbone and acts as an anchor for a crown, and looks, feels and functions like a natural tooth.

Bridge-supported implants - If you are missing more than one tooth, this type of implant also prevents bone loss and preserves adjacent teeth. Bridge-supported implants provide a long-lasting, functional, and attractive solution for multiple missing teeth.
