Our Dental Team
We like to practice dentistry together and it shows!
It's no surprise then that over a hundred dental practices from across the country have come to learn about our five-star service through the Boger Center for Professional Development. Through regular morning huddles, continuing education, working with consultants and get-aways together, we work hard to cultivate a healthy culture of respect and open communication so that we can together provide unsurpassed, top-notch comfortable dental care for you and your family.
Each year, we take time to regroup, re-vision and re-establish our mission statement. The result, we believe, is a healthy, professional environment in which our patients can experience the most that dentistry has to offer for overall, lifelong oral health. Come visit the cosmetic dentists and their excellent team in Plymouth, MN. Contact us today in the Minneapolis area and experience this five-star service for yourself.
