Hello! Portage Pediatric Dentistry is a single office, single doctor private pediatric practice located in Southwest Michigan, halfway between Detroit and Chicago. We moved into a brand new custom-built office in 2017 with intentional room to add additional providers. We are looking for a pediatric dentist who is compassionate, driven, enthusiastic, and a team player to join our growing practice. We provide treatment with nitrous oxide, mild oral sedation, in office IV sedation with area pediatric anesthesiologists, and general anesthesia at the local hospital and affiliated surgery center. We have a very strong hygiene base and receive a large number of referrals from area general dentists. Orthodontic treatment is usually referred out.
A full time associate position is readily available. Partnership is a very viable option for the right candidate, if interested. We are able to offer a competitive compensation and benefits package. Whether you are a new graduate or in the thick of your career, please consider being a part of a practice where you can put patients first, truly grow into the type of practitioner you’ve always wanted to be, and be a fondly thought of and well respected member of a wonderful community. If you want your practice to be truly special and meaningful for your patients, your community, and yourself without the trepidation of doing a start-up, we may be the perfect fit for you!

About Portage Pediatric Dentistry
Hello! My name is Dr. Jody Wrathall and I am the one doctor owner of Portage Pediatric Dentistry! I bought a well established practice from a retiring pediatric dentist and in October 2017 our office moved in to a brand new office built with purposeful room to grow. We are a premier private pediatric dentistry practice in Portage, Michigan. Our newly built, custom-designed office features 6000 square feet with an additional 1000 square foot mezzanine. We have four quiet rooms, a consultation room, and a six chair open hygiene bay. We are fully digital and paperless, with TVs above every chair and two playrooms for the children to enjoy. Our office is located on a private golf course, in very close proximity to outstanding schools and other very reputable businesses. Currently we are open Monday-Thursday 8am-5pm and I do hospital cases most Fridays. We are in network with Delta Dental as a premier provider and Blue Cross Blue Shield, taking all other insurances as an out of network provider, and seeing children with state-based insurance on a limited basis. We welcome parents to be a part of their child’s appointment. We typically treat patients until they graduate high school or college, and have a small number of adult special needs patients we see as well.
