Park Dental Champlin

Meet Dr. Carol Bahnemann! Dr. Bahnemann practices at Park Dental Champlin and has over 30 years of service with Park Dental. In her profile, Dr. Bahnemann shares why she chose dentistry, what she enjoys about the group practice setting, as well as some fun personal facts about herself. Check out her profile to learn more!

What made you choose dentistry?
In short, I wanted a career in health care where I could care for people, develop one on one relationships and work with my hands in a creative way. Dentistry has given me all of that!

What do you love most about being a dentist or what do you find the most rewarding?
I love the team approach to dental care. Working together with my assistants, hygienists and scheduling manager to earn and grow our patient’s trust in us is humbling, challenging and rewarding. I’m proud of my team for their focus on and commitment to our patients and I think our patients can tell we enjoy working together to provide their dental care.

What’s your care/treatment philosophy?
The foundation of my care philosophy is my belief that every person is made in the image of God and therefore has special inherent value, making them worthy of respect and protection. It is an honor and a privilege for me to provide dental care to God’s highest creation. This belief motivates me to serve and care for my patients with excellence and compassion.

Is there a particular area of dentistry you enjoy the most or like to focus on?
I very much enjoy the challenge of diagnostics. Putting together the information gathered from tests, radiographs, patient symptoms and history to come up with a diagnosis is a bit like solving a mystery. It involves asking the right questions, active listening, and thoughtful consideration. It’s the first step toward knowing how I might be able to help the patient.

When did you start or how many years have you been with Park Dental?
I started with Park Dental in 1990.

What is one thing you love most about Park Dental?
The never-ending quest for how to do better for our patients and our team members.

What do you enjoy most about being part of a group practice?
Group practice provides a built-in community of dental professionals with varying skills, interests and personalities.  It’s fun and energizing being around a group of people who are diverse yet have a common passion. It’s a learning and growing, giving and sharing environment like no other.

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