I like the wide-ranging challenges of general dentistry, and I particularly enjoy providing quality patient care. Away from the practice, my favorite activities include raising Labrador Retrievers, running and spending time with my wife at our cabin.

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

I have Acute Anxiety and has previously had some bad experiences at a dentist in another state so I avoided it for a couple of years. Dr Routte has made me comfortable and confident enough that I no longer need nitrous for my appointments and he always makes sure I do not feel any pain during a procedure. He talks me through my procedure and does not make me feel ridiculous at all about my anxiety! I also fully appreciate that he will refer to a specialist when it's not his area of expertise rather than doing something just to make an extra buck. The first root canal I needed, he referred me to an endontist and I chose someone else- that was a mistake. I will go with Dr Routte's referral suggestions moving forward!!

I feel I always feel the doc could spend more time for my concerns but the appointment set for seems to be insufficient on a case by case. The dental job involved would need to be monitored for any follow up adjustments to avoid the same issues.

My hygienist and Dr. Routt are amazing! I always enjoy seeing them both and look forward to my twice yearly dental exams. My hygienist is kind, patient, a good listener and my visits are relaxing and enjoyable. She does a fantastic job and is consistently in a good mood. Dr. Routt is the best dentist I have ever had. I trust him and feel like I am in good hands with both my hygienist and Dr. Routt.

It was my first time with Park Dental seeing Dr. Routt. I left in awe at the respect and courtesy I was shown as a patient. Additionally, I was impressed by Dr. Routt's teamwork, cheerfulness, and ability to converse well with me. I am going to recommend Park Dental to my family and friends.

I love my doctor to death -- he's great! My only request is that he keep his nails trimmed, because when one scrapes against my gums, it's uncomfortable. Once he even scraped some tissue off my gums which really hurt and continued for a few days.

Dr Routt is fantastic!!! Had cheek swelling and he quickly diagnosis the problem. From previous oral surgery. I was able to get in immediately and he took the time to solve the problem. He is a true professional who really cares about his patients and the long term health of those he works with. I have recommended him to two friends who are thrilled with the care he gives.

Excellent. I asked for advice regarding my son who has a mental disorder and hasn't seen the dentist in over 10+ years. He recently had a lower front tooth break off (at the gum line) and refuses to go to a dentist to have it pulled and an implant put in. Dr. Routt was very patient, responsive and empathetic with me in answering my questions.

Dr Routt has an amazing "chairside" manner. He is very gentle and engaging. I feel lucky to have found him when I moved to the Twin Cities and recommend him to anyone looking for dental care.
