Put Your Child’s Oral Health in Experienced Hands

Dr. Katie and Dr. Kyle are warm and friendly pediatric dentists who have trained and studied extensively beyond dental school. Dr. Katie and Dr. Kyle are both board certified through the American Board of Pediatric Dentistry. 

Before completing his pediatric residency, Dr. Kyle was a general dentist for eight years treating patients of all ages and from all walks of life.

A Friendly, Stress-Free Setting in Apple Valley, MN

Our pediatric dental and orthodontic practice is a fun and friendly place that was designed with children in mind. Children need to know that they are in a safe space, where they can always expect to see friendly, familiar faces. Every member of the Carousel team is here because we love working with kids, and it shows in every interaction we have with your child.

Our job is to provide age-appropriate care, help kids get comfortable going to the dentist, and set them on a path to a lifetime of healthy smiles.

Set the Stage for a Lifetime of Happy Smiles

Starting children off with their dental care at an early age allows them to gradually acclimate to the idea of oral health care and visiting the dentist. We’re here to offer all the support, guidance, and education parents and caregivers need to help promote excellent oral health habits at home.

And since Dr. Katie and Dr. Kyle have two young children of their own, you can also be confident that they have plenty of practical experience in addition to their advanced training!
