Gendler Dental Care and its office is spacious, warm, and inviting. You will feel welcomed and safe from the moment you call our office to make an appointment to the time you walk through the door.

We are dedicated to our patient’s dental health; because of this mission, we have invested in the latest technology and equipment to assure you receive comfortable, dependable dental care. For example, our fully digital office utilizes digital radiography that emits 90% less radiation than traditional X-rays. Because we want our patients to thoroughly understand their treatment plan, we use intraoral cameras to take images inside your mouth. The reason we do this, is so we can then display them along with your X-rays when you’re in the dental chair. This aids us in providing an accurate and comprehensive diagnosis. The intraoral camera and images also provides your dental care provider with a better view and understanding of your unique dental treatment needs.

The digital radiography also enhances the communication between our doctors and laboratory technicians. What does this mean to you? It means we can provide better dental care and service that lead to more predictable results for our patients.
The investment our dental practice made in its own 3D CT scanner gives us ultimate precision when placing implants and this is the key to successful outcomes.

Cone Beam or CAT scan technology allows us to create a 3-D replica of the anatomy of your head and neck in a 1:1 ratio. This data assists our team in evaluating implant placement and restoration options, discovering pathologies, planning orthodontic procedures, aiding in extractions, and analyzing airway capacity. Currently, there are only a few hundred I-CATs in the world, only a few in the state of Minnesota and one at Gendler Dental Center.

Technology is great, BUT we understand it is the personal touch that goes further in making your dental experience a pleasant one. It’s the personal touch that makes you feel good about your smile and your choices for dental care.


We value our patients and that means we value their time. Because we understand that time is of the essence to our patients, we are one of a handful of dental offices that has a full service laboratory on site. What does this mean for you? It provides unmatched convenience for our patients. In many traditional dental offices, a patient will have to wait to receive crowns or dentures. At Gendler Dental Center we eliminate wait times, reduce the potential for additional appointments, and many other dental care procedures can be addressed on site, saving you valuable time, lessening your discomfort and saving you money.


We understand that for many, dental care visits cause fear and anxiety — usually based on prior dental experiences. We appreciate and understand that and that’s why our dental practices specializes in relaxation/sedation dentistry. We have made it our mission to work with dental phobic patients and help put them at ease. Our team caters to the needs of our patients and we strive to deliver your dental care in a safe, comfortable environment, and as pain-free as possible. Our stress-free dental care experience includes offering a relaxing spa-type atmosphere, soothing music, and the latest movies for your enjoyment. Most important to our patients is the gentle touch practiced by our dentists and dental hygienists.

As if all of this wasn’t enough we do know that a relaxing atmosphere and caring attitude aren’t enough to allay our patients dental fears. To alleviate the fear, anxiety and pain for our high-fear, low-pain-threshold patients we provide a full range of sedation dentistry. Proven sedation dentistry methods will help alleviate fear and help you face dental visits with confidence. Dental phobia is nothing to be ashamed of (and you’re not alone in that fear). Talk to us. We can help.


We care about our patients and every level of dental care we deliver. We take our responsibilities to your dental health and your comfort seriously, but we like to have fun too. Our office staff provides a lighthearted atmosphere that we think you’ll enjoy!

We practice the “Golden Rule” of dentistry, meaning we will treat you the way we’d want to be treated. Our team loves working together, and it shows. We collaborate to deliver an unsurpassed level of service and care.


Excellent dental care involves more than clinical skill and high-tech tools (although we pride ourselves on providing that). A good experience for both the doctor and the patient is one in which the lines of communication remain open. We want to get to know you and truly understand your needs and concerns. That’s the way we do business, and we are in the business of building lasting relationships with our patients. We want to provide you and your family with the type of dental care that we would demand for ourselves and our families.


You lead a busy life. Making time for dental care is a smart choice, but we know you’ve got other things to do. We do our best to see you on time, efficiently address your issues, and get you back to your day. We’ll give you our time by answering your questions and explaining your options, and then working with you to make dental care decisions you can feel good about.
