Morgan Feldpausch D.M.D. M.P.H.

Dr. Morgan Feldpausch was born and raised in mid-Michigan. She attended Hope College and earned a Bachelor of Arts in Psychology. In addition to her undergraduate coursework, she participated in several extracurriculars. She served as president of the Pre-Dental Club and continued working as a certified lifeguard—which she began doing at the age of 14. She was also a member of the planning committee for Hope College’s annual Dance Marathon, raising funds for Helen DeVos Children’s Hospital in Grand Rapids. Dr. Feldpausch then worked at the Holland Free Health Clinic as a Program Assistant, primarily serving as grant manager and authoring applications to fund the clinic’s various health programs.

Dr. Feldpausch went on to attend the Arizona School of Dentistry & Oral Health (ASDOH) in Mesa, Arizona, where she earned her Doctor of Dental Medicine (DMD) degree. She simultaneously earned her Master of Public Health (MPH) degree with a dental emphasis. Dr. Feldpausch was elected Vice President of her class and maintained this position for all four years of her dental education—a first in the school’s history. She was inducted into Omicron Kappa Upsilon (OKU), the national honor society in dentistry which symbolizes outstanding scholarship, character, service, and research. Individuals from the top 12% of each dental school class across the country are chosen for lifelong membership.

As part of her clinical training, Dr. Feldpausch practiced at five Federally Qualified Health Centers across the United States in community health settings to provide oral surgery, root canals, restorative, and pediatric care. Her training was strongly influenced by ASDOH’s emphasis on holistic healthcare. She treats each patient with a comprehensive mindset, focusing on the connection that oral health has on overall health and vice versa. Dr. Feldpausch is a strong advocate for preventing and managing dental diseases and loves to help families achieve optimal health.

Dr. Feldpausch proudly calls Grand Rapids home. When she is not doing dentistry, she enjoys a variety of outdoor activities including camping, hiking, running, and swimming. She also enjoys reading, catching up on her favorite shows, and spending time with family and the many friends who reside in west Michigan.
