    Dr. Sarah (Swartz) Bouwkamp grew up in Ionia, Michigan and dreamed of becoming a dentist ever since she can remember. After graduating from Ionia High School in 2014, she completed her undergraduate studies at Hope College (Holland, MI) and obtained a Bachelor of Science in Biochemistry-Molecular Biology. 

    Dr. Bouwkamp graduated in 2022 with her Doctor of Dental Surgery degree from the University of Michigan School of Dentistry. During her time at UMSOD, she was honored with many awards, including the Pierre Fauchard Academy Scholarship, D4 Student of the Year Award, and Student Excellence in Predoctoral Education. She is a member of the American Dental Association, Michigan Dental Association and West Michigan District Dental Society.


            Dr. Sabrina (Swartz) Rodriguez was born and raised in Ionia, MI, graduating high school with the Class of 2015. She then continued her education at Grand Valley State University (Grand Rapids, MI) and eventually received her Doctor of Dental Surgery degree at Marquette University School of Dentistry (Milwaukee, WI).

            Dr. Rodriguez is a member of the American Dental Association as well as the Michigan Dental Association. She participates in a local dental study group and looks forward to being apart of her community. 

            In her free time, she loves to walk trails with her cavapoo Ruby, bake sweet treats, and is always taking a recommendation for a good book. 



    Dr. Lowell Swartz (Doc) came to Ionia in 1991 to begin his dental career. He grew up in Saginaw Michigan then attended the University of Michigan studying Biochemistry as an undergraduate. He then went to the University of Detroit and graduated in 1991, moving to Ionia and starting Ionia Family Dentistry shortly after. 

    Although dentistry is a passion, Lowell is most proud of his wife, Judy, and daughters, Sarah and Sabrina. He and Judy have lived in Ionia for many years and have been long-time supporters of their community. 

    Although Dr. Swartz is retired from patient care, he is present and active in supporting Drs. Sarah and Sabrina as they continue on what he started at Ionia Family Dentistry.
