Pier 210 Dental Group is proud to have Dr. Vandewalker as a member of our team and we value the skill set he continually works to enhance for the benefit of his patients.

I have loads of energy, however sometimes I take on too many tasks in a single day; I bite off more than I can chew! I am a decent artist and I love food; I try not to bite off more than I can chew in this instance! If there were only two hours left on earth I would actually try to eat all of my favorite foods from all the best restaurants; here, due to time constraints, I might bite off more than I would be able to chew!

When I am not at Pier 210, you can find me working out or coaching at my former All-Star Cheer gym.
