Meet the Doctors
Dentistry provided in a warm and caring environment is what you will find at the office of Dr. Karen O'Rourke. The patients in the practice cover a wide age range; from infants to seniors. In practice for over 30 years, Dr. O'Rourke has a broad range of experiences you will value as a patient. She has avidly pursued continuing education, bringing a preventive orthodontic exerciser to her patients from Australia for children as young as three. The orthotropic treatment she provides is based on a philosophy and technique developed in England by Dr. John Mew. The benefit of this particular treatment is that it strives to correct the cause of the problem, not just straighten teeth. For adults, she has pursued education in cosmetic dentistry, full reconstruction, and implants to replace missing teeth.
Dr. O'Rourke graduated from the University of Michigan and then completed an optional one year General Practice Residency at the U of M hospital. This residency training took her through the eight dental specialties as well as rotations through the hospital. Emphasis was placed on treating medically compromised patients, oral cancer patients, and patients requiring dentistry under general anesthesia.

She taught for a number of years in the hygiene program at GRCC and is involved in a number of community and professional organizations. Dr. O'Rourke is on staff at Mercy Health Hospital and Spectrum Health Hospital. In addition, she is a Fellow of the American Association of Hospital Dentists, a Fellow in the American College of Dentists, and a member of the American Dental Association. Thankful for the gifts she has received, Dr. O'Rourke gives back to the community by volunteering at Health Intervention Services, the Adult Dental Services Program, and the Donated Dental Services Program of Michigan.


Dr. Lora Wonderly's mission is to provide comprehensive dental services in a calm, safe, and comfortable setting for people of all ages. She loves to see her patients smile!

Dr. Wonderly was born and raised in Ohio. Dentistry intrigued Lora as a child and she always looked forward to visits with the family dentist. She was accepted at Ohio State University for her undergraduate degree and then Temple University School of Dentistry in Philadelphia for her dental education. After graduation, she attended a general practice residency program at the Erie County Medical Center in Buffalo, NY. Continuing her education is very important to her and she loves to expand her knowledge with the latest techniques and ideas. Dr Wonderly enjoys thinking outside the box and believes in finding the root cause of symptoms instead of only treating the symptoms. Some of her special interests include TMD, sleep apnea, orofacial myofunctional therapy otherwise known as "face yoga" and tongue tie release. She also enjoys restorative and cosmetic dentistry through crown and bridge work, dental implants and orthodontics.

Dr Wonderly loves outdoor activities, changing of the seasons and college football which is what brought her to Michigan. At any time, you can find Dr Wonderly biking, running, hiking or dining out at the local restaurant scene. She has a love for animals and adopted her dog Oakley who was rescued from a very abusive situation by a humane officer. Dr Wonderly volunteers at Grand Rapids HQ drop in center for homeless and at-risk youth performing dental screenings along with teaching dental health.
