Dr. Joseph Kirkwood

In 1994, they welcomed triplets, 2 boys and a girl, into their family, and Dr. Kirkwood joined Beckwith Family Dental Care.  Two years later, their youngest son was born and life since then has been a whirlwind of activity.

Not only is the family busy with sporting events and school projects, they are also all very active in their church community Grace Episcopal Church.  In addition to a busy family life, Dr. Kirkwood’s hobbies include reading, golf and anything related to U of M.  Sue enjoys writing, tennis and creating and teaching mosaic artwork.
Dr. Kirkwood is a member of the West Michigan Dental Association and welcomes you to learn more about the practice.  See first-hand how they assist their patients in creating beautiful smiles to match a lifetime of experiences.

Dr. Daniel W. Grode

Dr. Daniel W. GrodeWe are pleased to have Dr. Daniel W. Grode, at Beckwith Family Dental Care! Dr. Dan hails from Livonia, Michigan, which is in the metro-Detroit area. His idea to pursue a career as a dentist began at a very young age. This life-long goal also allowed Dan to fulfill his desire to help others and today he could not be happier with his decision. His path to dentistry includes receiving a Bachelor of Science in Human Biology from Michigan State University, followed by attending University of Detroit Mercy School of Dentistry for his Doctor of Dental Surgery. The lure of the west side of the state was too great to resist, and he settled in Grand Rapids. When not creating smiles, Dr. Grode is active with sports, his dog named Titan, and his wife, who completed her Master’s Degree as a Physician’s Assistant from Grand Valley State University. Dr. Grode is very excited to get to know all of the great patients here and is ready to continue to deliver the quality care and service you have grown to love from Beckwith Family Dental Care.
