Meet Our Staff

White Bear Smiles dental staff

We are a firm believer in staff continuing education, and have truly assembled a team of caring health care professionals. We want our techniques, materials and methods not just to be state of the art, but to be based in reality and practicality – on what will work for the long-term, and be of real benefit for our patients.

Bottom line, we like what we do, are proud of what we do, and want to do our absolute best for you.

Have you ever wondered about the treatment we recommend?

Ask questions! We're more than happy to talk with you about our recommendations and available treatment options. More often than not there'll be choices for you to make, choices about whether to get composite or porcelain fillings, about whether to get a crown, or how to replace a tooth or which cosmetic approach is appropriate, and even whether to accept, defer, or phase treatment. If you have any insurance questions, Kristen or Patty would be happy to help you.

Your best choices for treatment are always those that fit your needs, your priorities, and your budget. So please, feel free to ask questions. Your participation in treatment decisions is the cornerstone of appropriate and cost effective care.
