When we’re not caring for your child’s first tooth or your teen’s consultation for Invisalign, we may be helping an older family member considering tooth replacement with a partial or full denture, or implant-supported denture. At Lake Minnetonka Dental, we believe no one should have to struggle with tooth loss, especially in a smile they don’t feel confident in. With the choice of a beautiful partial or full denture, patients can recover their healthy abilities to eat or speak comfortably and enjoy life again in a beautiful smile.
“I have had Ashley as a hygienist every time and LOVE HER! She is friendly, thorough and tells me the truth. Dr. Herman was efficient and I immediately had total confidence in her. I feel like I am in my "family dental office" and people care about me as a person. I have EVERY reason to stay at Lake Minnetonka Dental and plan to do so for many years to come.”
“This place is amazing!! I have never felt so comfortable going to the dentist in my life. The staff have always been warm and welcoming, and made me feel very at ease. The first time I was there, they took me on a small tour of the facility so I could get to know the surroundings. I can't say enough about Dr. Julia Herman and her assistant... they were fantastic!!”
“Everyone, including myself hates going to the dentist - but when they offer keurig coffee and bottled water, have top of the line technology and a t.v in each room - its actually fun! Plus new patients receive teeth whitening kit, travel mug etc! Also I had Marty as my hygienist - he was so informative, I learned a lot about how to care for my teeth. 100%+ recommend this place!”
“I've gone to the same dentist my whole life. I am amazed at what the staff remembers about me and asks when I come, it makes the experience quite personal. Free whitening for life? Sign me up!”
“I have such a hard time going to the dentist... many fears. I had a general cleaning today and I have to say I was so well cared for. Bobby Jo is a dear sweet person. Very perceptive, caring, careful.. I don't know if there are enough great words to say about her. Thank you all!”
Wow! Recently had my first visit and the experience was incredible! Not commonly said about the dentist... but true! Everyone was so polite and really seemed to enjoy working there. TVs, free wi-fi, and complimentary teeth whitening all make this an outstanding experience for customers. Eager to go back for my next visit!
