About Us

Now accepting patients!

True North Community Dental Clinic is opening the week of September 11th, 2017. We are here to serve patients of all ages in the communities of Scott, Carver and Dakota counties.   

What makes us different is that we exclusively serve patients who are insured through Minnesota Health Care Plans (MHCP) or are uninsured. We want to be your dental home and a place where you can participate in regular preventative and routine dental care.  

Having a positive experience and making a relationship with you is very important to us!
