Patient Testimonials

Totally Worth It! - Cody

I hadn't been to the Dentist for several years after a couple of bad experiences. My wife convinced me to give White Bear Smiles a try , after being a lifelong patient and having nothing but the best things to say. I'm so glad I did! The whole staff is welcoming and a pleasure to interact with. My wife and I drive all the way from Prior Lake and it is totally worth it! I can't imagine a better dentist experience.


I went in for the first time today for a cleaning and a check up. The facility is very comfortable , and everyone was so nice and I was very impressed with all the high-tech equipment. I went with their Membership Program because it's a great deal and I felt very well taken care of.

10/10 would recommend! - Dana

Amazing doctors, amazing staff! As someone without dental insurance they have a great program to keep up on regular visits without breaking the bank. Not a pressure practice. Comfortable, clean and modern environment. 10/10 would recommend!

Genuinely Care! - Anja

The White Bear Smiles staff are always friendly and accommodating - I enjoy catching up with them at each visit. the clinic itself beautiful, modern, and very inviting.

White Bear Smiles - Patient Testimonial

"Switch!" - Marcia

"We have been to many dentists over the years and Dr. Anderson has by far been the best of them. Everything is so different, from the staff to the equipment. My husband had a cavity filled and even that process was better than other dentists. We actually look forward to going to the dentist now. I would recommend this office to anyone, in fact we do! I've told all my friends to switch."

"Exceptional Service" - C.E.

"I would like to thank you and your staff for the exceptional service and treatment I received during the process of getting my new “choppers”. From my first visit for an estimate, to extraction, temporary denture, final denture and fitting, your honesty and caring were superb. I feel you are a great dentist, but also you have selected a staff to your own high standards. Thank you to all. Sincerely,"

Fantastic Job! - D.W. and K.W.

"Our daughter, was in for her first dental check-up right after her third birthday. She was very excited to go see the dentist and to have her teeth tickled. :) Thanks to your staff, she had a great time and was not afraid at all. They did a fantastic job explaining what was happening and letting her touch the instruments. It makes it easier for us as parents, as well as those working on them, to have our children enjoy doctor visits and we just wanted to say thank you and keep up the good work!"

White Bear Smiles Patient Testimonial

"Each Visit" - Hess

"As always, visit was handled in a polite, professional and pleasurable manner. I have the utmost respect for this operation and it’s employees."

"Immediate Service" - Thomas

"I broke a capped tooth and was able to get in that day and have it taken care of. This was very important to me because I was leaving on a trip 2 days later."

"Satisfaction as Usual" - Kenneth

"Having been a client of Dr. Anderson for two years, I declare his care to detail and that of his staff to be extraordinary. He replaced a denture which had been a problem and did a fine job. His service is reflected in the beautiful facility that he has created and maintains. Each patient is accepted almost as a family member and is so treated."

"Emergency Care" - Carol

"I was in need of emergency care and was taken care of immediately. The staff is always most helpful and pleasant and Dr. Anderson took care of my needs right away. I know that I can always count on this office to do the right thing. I am most grateful."

"Above and Beyond" - Ruth

"Dr. Anderson and his staff go above and beyond my expectations. In fact I felt rested after my cat nap in the chair and went to a very productive afternoon feeling no after effects. Truly, I’m always inspired after a visit, because you all project such an upbeat, happy to be here attitude!"

"Best Dentist Ever!!!!!!!" - Robert

"I look forward to visiting Dr. Anderson and his staff because they are the best and friendliest in their field. Thank you for making something I hate to do or go to a nice experience."

"Lovely People" - Martin

"Since coming to live in the area from England, I can have nothing but praise for Dr. Anderson and his colleagues. Every effort is made to make one feel comfortable whilst they do the necessary, and they have made me a lot less nervous about dental visits."

"Simply the Best" - Karen

"Dr. Anderson and his team provide customer service which exceeds expectations everytime. I have been a patient for more than 20 years and every visit has been pleasant, efficient and completely comfortable. What strikes me most is the team’s dedication to their patients’ experience. Even when injecting pain killer, Dr. Anderson numbs the injection site and then massages the medication in. I remember receiving painful novocaine injections in the past, but I’ve never had one from Dr. Anderson. During each step of any procedure, the staff explains what to expect and checks in with you along the way to make sure you’re doing OK. For one long procedure I was offered a movie menu, but they finished before the movie was done. When I returned for the follow up, my movie was cued up to the precise spot where I’d left it. Who pays that kind of attention to detail? Dr. Paul Anderson, that’s who! He pays the same kind of attention to your dental health. I have sent many friends and family members over the years and they have become Dr. Anderson fans as well. Trust him. You’ll be healthier and happier when it’s time to see your dentist."

"Thank you so much to Dr. Anderson and staff! I was going to the dentist knowing I was going to receive bad news and they made me feel so comfortable and wanted and cared about. I felt like they really wanted what was best for me and my teeths’ future ;) I’ve already told my friends. ;)"

"Beyond My Expectations" - Josh

"After hearing so many of my friends talking about White Bear Smiles, I thought I would give Dr. Anderson’s office a call for my next dental cleaning. I recently had that cleaning and now I know why so many of my neighbors and friends recommend White Bear Smiles. Dr. Anderson and his staff went far beyond my expectations. Dr. Anderson was very thorough with my exam and explained to me some of my dental issues I have in words I could understand. With money being what it is these days, he also explained what needed to be fixed right away and what treatment could wait. I appreciated knowing ahead of time the costs and what my insurance would pay. Dr. Anderson’s hygienist and assistant took the time to show me better ways to brush and floss my teeth, which now I do everyday! Thank you White Bear Smiles for giving me a new dental home!!"

Thank you again,"
