Park Dental Albertville-St. Michael

In this week’s installment of “Get to Know the Park Dental Doctors”, we’re introducing you to Dr. Alex Litzenberg at Park Dental Albertville-St. Michael.  Dr. Litzenberg joined Park Dental in 2017 after graduating from Midwestern University College of Dental Medicine.  In his profile, Dr. Litzenberg shares what other career he considered before choosing dentistry, as well as other interesting facts about himself.  Enjoy learning about Dr. Litzenberg!

What made you choose dentistry?
I knew I wanted to have a career in medicine where I could help impact and improve lives, but also wanted a job that would be conducive to having a family and not being at work 24/7.

What do you love most about being a dentist or what do you find the most rewarding?
My favorite thing about dentistry is having patients that have had ongoing dental anxiety/phobia return and say that they had a great experience and are not as anxious as they once were. It is also very rewarding to watch a patient smile for the first time in a long while because they aren’t self conscious about their teeth anymore.

What’s your care/treatment philosophy?
I try to be as realistic about treatment as possible. I always present the most optimal treatment to patients, and work with them to find a treatment plan that they’re comfortable with. Not every treatment will be right for every patient.

Is there a particular area of dentistry you enjoy the most or like to focus on?
I really enjoy restorative dentistry – fillings, crowns, veneers, etc. It’s rewarding to be able to restore function and esthetics to a tooth or teeth that a patient was not happy with or unable to use.

When did you start or how many years have you been with Park Dental?
I began practicing as a licensed dentist in 2017, with Park Dental.

What is one thing you love most about Park Dental?
I really enjoy the group practice aspect of Park Dental. I believe that this team approach leads to better, more comprehensive care for our patients.

What do you enjoy most about being part of a group practice?
With a group practice, patients always have somebody they can reach with their concerns. If a doctor is sick or on vacation or a practice is closed there is always another doctor or practice that can serve a patients’ needs or help with their concerns.

And now for a little fun, let’s get to know Dr. Litzenberg on a personal level.

  • What did you want to be when you were a kid?
    I wanted to be a professional basketball player. I’ve always loved basketball and I was already over 6 feet tall coming into high school. Unfortunately, I stopped growing after my freshman year. As it turns out, Dentistry is not a bad “second option”.
  • What was your very first job?
    My first job was at Papa Murphy’s when I was 15 years old, which is good because I loved pizza and ate a lot at that age.
  • What do you like to do on your days off?
    On my days off, you could probably find me either on a golf course, going camping/hiking, and/or spending time with my wonderful wife, daughter, and 2 dogs.
  • What’s your favorite food or drink?
    Pizza is easily my favorite food. Although, if it comes to fast food, Taco Bell.
  • Who is your hero or who inspires you?
    I really like to see celebrities or professional athletes who us their money/influence to better the community rather than just buy more cars and mansions.
  • What is an interesting fact that people may not know about you?
    I am a twin. We are fraternal and he is an engineer.
  • If you could travel anywhere in the world, where would you go?
    In the US, I’d love to go back to Nashville where my wife and I got engaged. I’ve never been to Europe, but I’d love to travel some of the countries there as well.
