What sets Van Hoof Dental apart from the other dentists in the Appleton area? This was the question I asked myself when determining the mission and core values of our dental practice. Van Hoof Dental was founded to provide excellent dental care in the Fox Valley and surrounding area where patients are treated as part of our family. We take pride in building lasting relationships by listening to your needs and wants and delivering the very best dental care and service you deserve. I believe all of our patients deserve to feel valued and cared for because this is how I treat my own family members.
I am a native of Appleton, WI and am excited to be back in the Fox Valley after spending the last few years practicing in Madison, WI. While in Madison, the opportunity to practice with a group of experienced dentists as well as participate in many continuing education courses from some of the most respected names in the dental community rapidly expanded my practice. Continued education ensures that I am providing the most up to date and exceptional dental treatment available.
Outside of the office, I enjoy spending time with my wife, Whitney, and our dog, Scout. We enjoy all outdoor activities especially long walks and hikes. We always are looking forward to the next adventure. In the summertime you can find us spending time up north or out exploring the Appleton area.
I look forward to the opportunity to be your dentist and cannot wait to meet you!
