Minnesota's Best Dentists of 2014

2014 Top Minnesota Dentists

Finding a good dentist can be tricky. You want a skilled dentist who treats patients with respect, kindness, and confidence, a dentist who is honest about discussing costs upfront (before any treatments are administered), a dentist who is able to see patients in a reasonable timeframe. You want a dentist who has a reputation for clinical excellence and providing knowledgeable, compassionate care. How, though, do you find these dental professionals? What’s a starting point?


The Selection Process

When you’re looking for any new health care provider—general practitioner, dentist, specialist—you ask for recommendations, right? You ask the people you trust: Who do you see? Why do you like him or her? It’s often the best way to narrow down a very large, very comprehensive list of possibilities. This is the same approach Professional Research Services took when they contacted 2,000 licensed general dentists and dental specialists and asked who the dental experts would recommend with their own family’s dental care. Every dentist was allowed to recommend up to three colleagues in each given dental specialty (general dentistry, endodontics, oral and maxillofacial surgery, orthodontics, pediatric dentistry, periodontics, and prosthodontics). Once the ballots were complete, nominees were carefully evaluated on the basis of survey results, the legitimacy of their license, and their current standing with the State of Minnesota’s Department of Health. The result? A list of approximately 200 outstanding “Top Dentists,” as chosen by their peers—a sample of the great dental talent found in Minnesota.

Dentistry for The Entire Family

If you haven’t been to the dentist in awhile, you won’t be met with looks of disapproval at Dentistry for the Entire Family in Fridley.

“We do not scold, judge, or lecture,” says Dr. John Cretzmeyer. “We see many patients who have been absent a long time due to fear, money, or just plain procrastination.”

Very little shocks this experienced dentist, named a 2014 “Top Dentist” by his peers.

“I’ve been doing this for 40 years,” says Dr. Cretzmeyer. Odds are pretty high that “a patient won’t come in with something we haven’t seen before.”

Exams are thorough and detailed, complete with an oral cancer screening. The pros and cons of every treatment is carefully explained, with dollar estimates, time frames, and insurance coverage.

The staff of Dentistry for the Entire Family understands that a welcoming environment is key in building trusting relationships. When patients come in to have work done, they can put on the headphones to watch the TV screens above their chairs and request nitrous oxide or relaxation medicine for additional comfort. A trip to the dentist shouldn’t be stressful or frightening. With the right staff of dedicated dental professionals—like Dr. Cretzmeyer, Dr. Robert Laing, Dr. Curtis Weyrauch and Dr. Thyra Jagger—it can even be fun.

Modern Care Endodontics of Edina and LivingTooth™

Dr. Todd Geisler is a root canal specialist who can offer patients a new alternative to traditional endodontic procedures—an option that may breathe life into an otherwise dead tooth. The process of this cutting-edge technology, invented by Dr. Geisler, is called LivingTooth™. As a pioneer in regenerative endodontics, Dr. Geisler plans to feature the LivingTooth™ procedure as part of his newly-opened endodontic clinic, Modern Care Endodontics of Edina.

Modern Care Endodontics of Edina features a full array of endodontic services including the newest microscopic technology available to identify and visualize the complex anatomy of the tooth. Cone Beam CT scanners provide three-dimensional imagery of the tooth, allowing Dr. Geisler to diagnose disease and defects in teeth that may normally go undetected by conventional x-rays.

Dr. Geisler’s clinic will be the first in the world to offer LivingTooth™, which attempts to reconnect the immune system to the tooth by using a patent-pending technology. Traditional root canals use a rubber-like material to seal the tooth, which may eliminate pain but results in a dead tooth. LivingTooth™ technology utilizes the body’s own natural growth factors to regenerate the tissue inside the tooth. The result: patients keep their living teeth.

Dr. Geisler gained insight into regenerative procedures while completing his endodontic residency at the University of Texas Health Science at San Antonio. Since residency, he’s worked to simplify these procedures and broaden their application to a larger number of patients.

Along with partner Dr. Michael McFarland, Dr. Geisler plans to package the LivingTooth™ technology and distribute it to dentists worldwide. Their hope is that this technology will significantly impact the more than 40 million root canals that are performed globally each year.

Dr. Geisler is a member of the Regenerative Endodontics Committee for the American Association of Endodontists and the Scientific Advisory Board for the Journal of Endodontics. Modern Care Endodontics has a second location in Lakeville, in partnership with Dr. Jay D. Simonton. Dr. McFarland operates a general practice in River Falls, Wis.

Jakubas Dental Clinic

Going to the dentist is a positive experience at Jakubas Dental Clinic, not only because of the skilled work of Dr. Joan Jakubas and her friendly, professional team of associates, but also because patients get the five-star treatment with massage chairs, warm blankets, padded head rests, and a calming atmosphere.

“We value our patients,” says Dr. Jakubas. “We treat every person we work with as a true partner in maintaining overall health and satisfaction. We have a genuine concern for their well-being.”

Named a 2014 “Top Dentist,” Dr. Jakubas not only believes in the “patient first” mentality, but works closely with her staff to educate patients about the relationship between healthy oral care and better overall health. She utilizes the latest in high-tech equipment, including the latest digital imaging technology (providing better accuracy and clarity when examining x-rays) and the Vel-scope cancer-detecting system, which allows her to screen a patient’s mouth for precancerous and cancerous growth. (Early detection of pre-cancerous and cancerous lesions increases the chances of prevention, treatment, and recovery.)

For 26 years, Dr. Jakubas has been a trusted name in the local dental community, seeing patients for everything from general dentistry to endodontics to implants to cosmetic smile makeovers. She gives back through volunteering with Project Homeless Connect, Give Kids a Smile, and the Ronald McDonald Dental Van.

With degrees from prestigious organizations and membership in various professional associations, Dr. Rizvi has the academic background and scientific knowledge to keep his patients’ teeth, gums, and smiles in great condition, but it’s his interpersonal skills that really shine. He is able to put patients at ease, gain their confidence, and help them overcome their fears.

“As a team, we understand that our patients come first,” says Dr. Rizvi. “A satisfied patient is a happy patient.”

He supports this philosophy through providing a continuation of care in the most friendly, efficient, and comfortable way possible, by catering to his patients’ unique needs, and by making himself available for emergency situations, even on holidays.

Hultgren, Hoxie & Waki Orthodontics

When it comes to providing family-friendly dental care in one of the most beautiful Minneapolis neighborhoods, the staff of Linden Hills Dentistry is at the top of their games.

“Each patient deserves excellent dentistry, delivered comfortably and competently in a welcoming environment,” says Dr. Kordie Reinhold, selected as a 2014 “Top Dentist” by her peers.

Whether patients are seen for a standard cleaning or a more elaborate smile makeover, the professional Linden Hills team—Dr. Reinhold, Dr. Peter Hinke, Dr. Chas Salmen, hygienists, assistants, and administrators—works hard to ensure patients feel cared about, respected, appreciated, and most importantly—satisfied with their results.

She has a warm, caring personality, is specially trained in aesthetic dentistry, and has an intrinsic talent for designing smiles (reworking, replacing, and reshaping teeth requires an artistic eye).

“It’s immensely rewarding developing patient relationships,” she says. “We love what we do.”
