The Hartland Smilemakers are happy to announce that we will be adding to our team. 

Starting June of 2021 Dr. Joel Kerwin will be joining the Hartland Smilemakers. We will still be continuing the fine traditions of HSM dental and we are excited for Dr. Kerwin to be a part of it all. HSM has been caring for Hartland and your families since 1975 and will continue to do so for many years to come. Dr. Kerwin grew up in West Bloomfield, Michigan and attended Michigan State University, where he graduated with a degree in Finance. After working in finance for two years, he decided to return to school to pursue a career in health care, his true passion. He was accepted into Northwestern University where he completed a post-baccalaureate degree in pre-dental and then graduated dental school from the University of Detroit Mercy School of Dentistry. He is passionate about helping patients with all of their dental needs including restorations, crowns and bridges, root canals, Implants, Invisalign and cosmetic dentistry. Dr. Kerwin is an advocate of continued education and is always trying to keep up with the latest trends in the field, to better treat his patient’s needs. In his free time Dr. Kerwin enjoys spending time with family and friends, watching and playing sports and traveling. We hope all of you are just as excited as we are to welcome Dr. Kerwin to the Hartland Smilemakers family.

The health and safety of our patients and staff is our top priority.  We are following and exceeding guidance from the Centers for Disease Control ( CDC), the Michigan Dental Association (MDA) and the American Dental Association (ADA).

Our waiting room seating is configured so that patients can be 6 feet apart.  If all seats are occupied, you can feel free to wait in the car.


Each patient room is thoroughly disinfected before and after every visit.

The waiting room is cleaned several times throughout the day.

Hand sanitizer will be readily available at check in and in exam rooms, and hand washing may be done in our exam rooms and bathroom facilities.

Our policies are aligned with the latest COVID-19 guidelines issued by the CDC, MDA and ADA guidelines.

We are anxious to start serving your dental needs again and look forward to seeing you soon.
