When I grew up, my family went to the same dentist my entire childhood because we had a great relationship with our dentist. My goal is to create a similar, long lasting relationship with my patients at Park Dental.  My philosophy places a high value on patient education and preventative techniques to improve my patient’s oral health. I believe the most important aspect of patient care is an accurate diagnosis and constructing treatment plans for each patient’s individual needs.

In my free time, I am an avid runner, a diligent reader and enjoy traveling at any opportunity. Although I’m from the Chicago suburbs, I fell in love with the Twin Cities when I came here for dental school and decided to make the move permanent. I now live here with my fiancé, cat Loki and dog Leia.

Dr. Orech was very thorough. She was kind and she explained options I might take for future procedures. My dental hygienist is always very thorough with her procedures. She has been my hygienist for years. She's very friendly and is a good conversationalist. She remembers things about me that I have told her in the past. I'm confident when I leave the office that I know exactly what I have done correctly taking care of my teeth and what I should do in the future in caring for my teeth.

I wondered about why the dentist checked the jawbone and sides of my jaw. It was amazing how many joints / muscles control the jaw.

They seemed extra-rushed compared to previous visits, and didn't do as many things on the exam as they usually have done. Also, can you add different patient-dr interaction protocols re the sunglasses thing? I'm always nervous at the dentist and it would be helpful to have a reminder to remove the sunglasses when talking to the dr so it's a more human interaction.

She was confident but at the same time it seemed she in a rush. Was hoping for more thorough explaination of the X Ray. Such as loss of bone, though she did mention the gum desease.

both the hygienist and dentist took extra time to explain things to my 4 year old son to make him feel more comfortable during his cleaning and exam, I was very impressed with their patience and ability to connect with a child.

This was the most educational visit I've ever had to the dentist. I literally learned how to brush, floss, and use rinse correctly for the first time in 34 years.

I don't intend to suggest that there was a *lack* of concern or care on the part of the doctor; merely that there was nothing exceptional, either. That is almost universally the case when coming in for routine cleanings - you spend 30-40 minutes with the hygienist, and then the dentist comes in and just kinda says hello and gives your mouth a cursory glance. This is not a complaint, just a statement of fact.

She is absolutely amazing. I let her know that I was afraid of feeling any pain when I went in for my filling. She took it seriously and made a big effort during my appointment to ensure that I was comfortable.
