I chose dentistry because of the perfect mixture of art and science needed to develop lifelong patient relationships. I strive to help patients with dental fears and anxiety find a way to be comfortable in a dental office and empower them to regain oral health. I love working with patients to develop the best individualized treatment plan for their specific needs.
After dental school I completed a general practice residency in Seattle, WA, learning to manage patients with various medical complexities, neurological/intellectual disabilities, and severe dental anxiety/phobia. I was able to refine my dental surgical skills taking after-hours hospital emergency calls and managing dental trauma and infections. I later became the Assistant Program Director of the residency program and participated in teaching and mentoring dental residents. I ultimately left this position to return to my home state of Minnesota to be with family and serve the community I grew up in.
Outside of dentistry, I enjoy traveling, reading, and experimenting with new recipes. I am also an avid photographer and especially enjoy landscape and macro photography.

Dr. Helal was wonderful. She made me feel calm and comfortable. She explained my options and listened to my concerns. She's the first dentist that made me feel like a trip to the dentist is not terrible. I look forward to working with her.

During my visit, I had an excellent experience with Dr. Helal. She was professional, thorough, and it was apparent that she took time to review my file before my appointment in order to better understand my needs. I will definitely continue to see her for all my future dental needs.

Why do some doctors not have a star rating or comments?
In order to provide our patients with the most accurate and beneficial information, we only post star ratings and comments for a doctor once they have received a minimum of 30 surveys within the previous 12 months.
