Meet the Doctor behind the blue bridge

Dr. Tiffany Kimmel is originally from central Pennsylvania, where she grew up on her family's fruit and vegetable farm. She attended Lafayette College and received her bachelor’s degree in Biology and completed a minor in Art. She then attended University of Michigan School of Dentistry for her doctorate. Dr. Kimmel belongs to the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry, the American Dental Association, the Michigan Dental Association and the Academy of General Dentistry.

Dr. Kimmel met her husband in dental school and fell in love with West Michigan and the lakeshore after visiting. She knew at once that this was where she wanted to live and practice dentistry. In her free time, she enjoys spending time with her family and being outdoors and near the big lake. Her hobbies include cooking new dishes, running, golfing, painting and snowboarding in the winter. 

“I absolutely love what I get to come to work and do every single day. I get to use my clinical and artistic skills to help people to stay healthy and find confidence in themselves and their smile! I strive to create a great patient experience and bring my best each and every day.”

Dr. Nick

“It is my goal to provide quality dental care in a comfortable and anxiety free environment for all of my patients. It is important to me that patients are listened to, understood and never judged.”

Dr. Nick was born and raised in Rockford, Michigan. He attended Michigan State University, where he received his bachelor's degree in Human Biology and a minor in Spanish Language. He went on to the University of Michigan School of Dentistry for his doctorate. Dr. Nick belongs to the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry, the American Dental Association and the Michigan Dental Association.

From a young age, Dr. Nick always wanted to work in healthcare. During high school, he realized he loved working with his hands after taking various woodworking classes. Dentistry was the perfect combination of these two things. Dr. Nick loves spending quality time with his wife and their two dogs, Izzy and Barkley.  His hobbies include golfing, grilling, snowboarding and astronomy. He can be found during any season cheering on his beloved Spartans.

How Blue Bridge Came To Be.

During her early career, Dr. Kimmel had the opportunity to examine aspects of dental practices that she really liked, and those that she would like to change. Over time, this list grew longer and the vision for Blue Bridge Dental became more clear. In early 2022, after surrounding herself with a great team, Dr. Kimmel was ready to make that vision a reality. What followed was a year of planning and careful consideration to create Blue Bridge Dental for her patients.

Blue Bridge Dental is modern dentistry. We want our patients to feel at home, so from the minute you walk in, you are in a lounge space, with a beverage bar, natural elements on the walls, and a calming fragrance in the air. 

We are utilizing the latest technology in dentistry to help deliver the best care. From digital scanners to intraoral cameras, technology has made it easier to communicate with our patients. These tools help us to focus on preventative dentistry so that we can be conservative when it comes to actual treatment! 

We focus on oral health as an essential part of overall body wellness. We recognize the importance of oral-systemic health, and we practice dentistry knowing that what is going on in your mouth can have a connection to the rest of your body.

Sustainability is becoming more of a focus within dentistry and the dental industry is noticing! We are able to utilize sterilizable instruments when possible to minimize waste, choosing suction tips that are biodegradable, and even investing in certain dental items made from recycled plastics.
