Meet Dr. Van Huffel

Meet Dr. Maria Van Huffel

I have been practicing dentistry since 1994 after spending my undergraduate years at Ohio University in Athens then four years in Dental School at The Ohio State University (Go Bucks!). I then completed a one year fellowship in the Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery Department at OSU. I started my practice in Gahanna at my current location in 1995 while also on staff at Children’s Hospital in Columbus. I left Children’s Hospital in 1997 to devote myself full-time to my private practice here in Gahanna and starting my family. AFter practicing 13 years in my first little office space, I built and moved into this office space in 2008. I have traveled to Sri Lanka for a Christian dental mission trip and I have volunteered at the Vineyard Church dental clinic since 2011. I  have thoroughly enjoyed dentistry for the past 22 years and look forward to many more years of loving to come to work each day. I have been blessed with 3 children that keep me hopping. We are involved in running, cycling, snow skiing, robotics competition, cross fit, field hockey, basketball, lacrosse and Taekwondo. Never a dull moment! I want to thank all of our dental family for entrusting us with your health. We are honored and truly grateful!

Customer service is such a forgotten art. But at Dr. Van Huffel’s office they not only understand customer service, but have raised the level of service to an extremely high level.

Dr. Van Huffel's knowledge and skill is excellent and her integrity is above reproach. Her staff is friendly, efficient and professional. She is one of the reasons I chose Columbus for my retirement home.
