Erica A. Grunwald, D.D.S.

My name is Dr. Erica Grunwald. I grew up in Clinton Township and now reside in Rochester. I attended Michigan State University and obtained a Bachelor of Science in Lyman Briggs-Physiology. I went on to the University of Detroit Mercy School of Dentistry and graduated with my Doctor of Dental Surgery degree in 2001.

Upon graduation, I was commissioned as a Navy Lieutenant and began my duty as a Naval Dental Officer. During this time I completed the Advanced Education in General Dentistry Residency, while stationed at Naval Station San Diego. After that  year of extended training, I was stationed at MCAS Miramar where I deployed with the 1st Medical Battalion in support of Iraqi Freedom.
After completing my active duty, I returned home to Michigan and worked as an Associate dentist in a Detroit area private practice for 7 years prior to arriving in Armada. Armada is a wonderful place to practice!

In my spare time I like to read, travel, workout and spend time with family and friends. 


My name is Sharon. I have been a dental hygienist for 38 and have had the honor of getting to know many families and individuals in Armada and the surrounding areas.  My goal is to make each patient feel comfortable in a dental setting and educate them about their oral hygiene.

I have been married to my husband, Chris, for over 36 years.  He recently retired and is busier than ever.  We have 3 children and 3 grandchildren.  Our oldest son, Ryan, is a dentist in Uganda, East Africa.  His dental ministry is Hope Smiles Uganda and in the past 4 years has served over 8,000 patients.  Derek is an insurance agent and executive bonds broker helping clients all over the U.S. and out of the country.  Meghan is an industrial operation engineer at Ford.


My name is Sherrie and I am a Registered Dental Hygienist.  I have been working in dentistry since 1995.

I grew up in the Grand Rapids area and attended Grand Rapids Communtiy College and Grand Valley State University.  I was married in 1997 to Jason and in 2007 we moved to Armada so he could work as an engineer but also help his dad on their local farm.  I enjoy family time with my 5 children and we all enjoy sports, hunting, boating and vacationing anywhere with a beach.

I love the care Dr. Grunwald and her team gives the patients and am blessed to be a part of it!  It truly is a family friendly environment.  I'm proud to serve the community in which I live.  It's a great place to be.


My name is Norma and I am a dental assistant here at Grunwald Family Dentistry. I have been working in the dental field since 1978 when I began dental assisting right here in Armada. I assist Dr. Grunwald with the procedures and treatments needed to keep you in great dental health. My career started out as a receptionist at a Richmond area Physician’s office before I moved to the dental field.

I was born and raised on a dairy farm in Richmond, and I still live in the area today with my husband, Mike. We have two grown children; Andrea, who lives in Richmond and Jason, who lives in Chicago. I look forward to seeing you in our office.


My name is Andrea.  I grew up in Royal Oak, where I met my husband, Kevin.  We moved to the Armada area in 2009 and love raising our 3 young children here.  I work at the front desk and have worked in the dental field for over 15 years.  I am so happy to be here at Dr. Grunwald's office and I look forward to meeting you.

I am married to Steve and have 2 grown children, daughter Katie, son Casey and 1 granddaughter, Morgan.

I grew up in Crystal Lake, Illinois and later moved to Phoenix, Arizona, where I resided for 18 years.  We moved our family back to the Midwest in 1996 where we enjoy the four seasons and sense of community.

My hobbies include sewing and floral design.
