Specialty Dental Care

While Park Dental can provide most of the dental care you will need throughout your lifetime, you may require treatment by a dental specialist.  

Going to a specialist can cause anxiety, so receiving care from someone that your general dentist trusts is essential. For over 10 years, Park Dental and The Dental Specialists have collaborated to provide the best possible specialty dental care – before and after treatment. 

Because we have a close working relationship with The Dental Specialists, there is a smooth transfer of care to the specialist who will perform the treatment. Your general dentist regularly communicates with the specialist during your care, and both work together to provide the information you need throughout the process. 

The Dental Specialists is a unique group in the community because multiple specialists work alongside each other to provide comprehensive specialty care. The doctors have taught at the University of Minnesota; routinely lecture locally, nationally, and internationally; have published in journals and textbooks; and are active in professional organizations. Many of the specialists have made additional efforts beyond their specialty certification to become board certified within their specialty. 

The Dental Specialists are welcoming and professional and make your comfort their top priority. Their practices are located at convenient locations throughout the Twin Cities, some next door to a Park Dental practice. These specialists include:
