I was born in Denmark and I speak multiple languages fluently (Danish and German amongst others). My dental career began in 1989 as a dental hygienist followed immediately by dental school in North Carolina. I served as a dental officer for 6 years in the US Air Force, mostly in Germany.

My husband and I continue to enjoy raising our 2 children in Minnesota. We are active campers and especially enjoy exploring Minnesota along Lake Superior. My family and I are very active in the Danish-American community and we enjoy many of the cultural events offered in the Twin Cities. During my spare time, I enjoy many different creative projects. I thoroughly enjoy providing dental care to my patients. I greatly appreciate my patients’ trust, sharing, and personal interaction every day.

The dental care you deserve is waiting for you at a nearby Park Dental.

I am 79. My dentist for years was my best friend until he retired. Dr. Dunford is by far the best dentist I have ever seen. I recommend her to all my friends because of the staff at your Edina Southdale location.

Dr. addressed her concerns with me lying on my back while 8 months pregnant and was accommodating. She made me feel comfortable to ask for breaks to sit up and she suggested I could rest on my side if needed too.

Both my kids enjoyed visiting with the dentist. They wanted to tell me her stories that she shared. and those little toy gifts for being extra good patient helps their ego.

My husband took the kids to the dentist. The Dr was very attentive and also made the kids feel comfortable. She shared her childhood story about snowball fights which the kids listened to her attentively and then i heard the fun story later in the evening. Seems like even my husband enjoyed the interaction. :)

Dr. Dunford is exceptional! In this day and age when medicine can seem to be more about business, Dr. Dunford is truly a healthcare provider, focusing squarely on the health and well-being of patients.

The doctor was knowledgeable and concerned about the deterioration of a tooth. She wanted me to set up a consultation in order to go over the options for treatment.

Dr. Dunford and her dental hygienist are a great team. Her hygienist is very conscientious in her hands on work and has very good customer service skills. As rushed as Dr. Dunford is between patients, I always feel once she's in the room with me, there is no rush until all my questions are answered. She has taken care of my dental needs very well for at least a decade. She is the best dentist I've ever had.

I appreciated the detailed and sometimes technical information about the status of my teeth, and a good discussion about the options. I don't want it dumbed down. Perhaps there could be a patient preference for how much detailed information you want from your dentist. I want the details so I can make a good proactive decision.

Dr. Dunford has provided insights that other dentists have not. She suggested I get braces due to odd wear patterns on my teeth. She also explained that white fillings last about 7 years while silver fillings last about 22 years. The information about fillings was very helpful because I'm on a budget and trying to get the most bang for my buck.

have to say - I had the same doc for 10 years or so before Dunford and never had confidence in her ability. I can talk more about that if you want. Dunford TOTALLY turned my case around with her care, apologies (for prior work done poorly) and willingness to rectify it. SHE's the reason I'm still at park dental edina and commute an hour to see her.

my dentist( like the gal before her too) is a joy to be around...very knowledgeable...and because I had poor hygiene as a child, my mouth is a war zone now with many issues and if it weren't for her prodding(because of course everything is painful) it wouldn't be getting done.....I very much appreciate her effort and her caring!!!!
