Been going to here for a few years now. And everyone their is so nice. My girls, 4 and 6, love going to the dentist. They always see Brianna and she is amazing with them, makes going to the dentist very fun!! I also had hyperemesis with my last pregnancy, after months of being sick 5-10 times a day, my teeth needed a lot of work and they made the whole experience better then.I ever could have imagined.

This is the best dentist office! Every staff member was incredibly kind and caring. I am extremely impressed with how thorough and educational my experience was. My hygienist, Molly provided the most detailed cleaning I have ever received while keeping it completely painless. They truly are a gentle practice! I am surprised to say that I am excited for my next visit in August!

Had my first appt yesterday as a new patient. You never know what to expect, right? After many satisfied years with my previous dentist (till he retired), I thought I would never find another place that made me feel so comfortable right away. Friendly, caring, kind, knowledgeable, understanding and fun are just a few words to describe the staff here. How many people can say they enjoy going to the dentist? I can!! I am so happy. I have found my new dental clinic for many years to come. Thank you Issacson Gentle Dentistry.

I am so pleased with my experiences at Isaacson Gentle Dentistry.  I have been a patient there for a couple of years now, and love to recommend them to anyone looking for a dentist.  Not only are the dentists great to work with, the whole staff is incredibly kind.  I am always greeted with a smile and treated with respect.  I had some issues with my insurance coverage and they were quick to help me out.  This is a place where they call you by name and treat you as a patient, not just another number.  Isaacson Gentle Dentistry is a dentist you can trust.

Family brought me to IGD after avoiding the dental work I needed for about 20 years! The care and services I received here was extraordinary! Who would have thought getting your teeth cleaned could be pain free. Kelly, the dental hygienist, was very skilled and kind. Dr. Isaacson and his assistant, Ashley, took over with the greatest care I have ever received from any dental clinic in my life. Your kindness, care, and skills have given me my smile back. You are all obviously performing the work you love and what God intended you to do. Thank you from the bottom of my heart and God bless you all!

I would definitely recommend Isaacson Gentle Dentistry.   I was with my childhood dentist till he retired and was recommended to Dr. Isaacson and now take my whole family there.   The staff is always friendly and very knowledgeable.  We recently had a horrible street hockey accident, on a Saturday afternoon, and Dr. Isaacson met us at his office where he was able to save all three teeth!!  Thank you!!  He is always putting his patients first and I appreciate that!!

I would definitely recommend Isaacson Gentle Dentistry to my friends and family.  Dr. Isaacson, Dr. Weisbrod, and their staff provide excellent dental care in a caring environment.  I decided to write a review because it is very hard to find a medical doctor or dentist who gives you the attention that you deserve.  I am so impressed with how they have responded to all my needs.  If I have had an emergency they have gotten me in right away.  I was never told that their schedule was full and so basically I am out of luck.  Like I have been told at my doctor’s office.  It is hard to find any healthcare office that provides the care that we all deserve.  It is nice to not feel like just another number.  They have gone out of their way to make my family and I feel like we matter.  I would highly recommend Isaacson gentle dentistry to my family and friends!!!!

We have been going to Dr. I for years. Because of no dental insurance I bounce around for cleanings when I find a coupon. On a recent visit elsewhere I was told I needed 2 crowns. So back to Dr I I go to get his advice. I do indeed need ONE! So we have a plan to get that fixed. This is honestly the second time this happened. This office is the most honest trust worthy team around.

My experience at Isaacson Gentle Dentistry was excellent! Becky clearly walked me through the check-in and made me feel comfortable in these crazy times. Dr. Isaacson patiently showed me l a couple of issues and recommended some technique changes to my personal care. My hygienist, Jennifer, did a fantastic job cleaning my teeth and just being plain friendly. I would recommend Isaacson Gentle Dentistry for any of your dental needs.

Mark R. from Minneapolis, MN (Source: Yelp)


Hands down, the staff and dental professionals at this location are, absolutely, fantastic!  When first searching for a super dental office (I’m extremely particular about my teeth), I relied upon reviews posted on line and they were right on!  So far, I have been with this office for the past couple of months, and I have been nothing but impressed each and every time I have visited them with the work they have done for me.

I have been going to Isaacson Gentle Dentistry for about 7 years now. They are THE BEST and FRIENDLIEST group of professionals I have ever met. I recommend everyone I know to go to this dentistry. When I had to bring my baby, they entertained him. When it was time for him to start doing his visits, they were so patient and excellent. I just brought my very fearful foster son here and he did it! They calmly explained everything and he did it! I LOVE this business and highly highly recommend!!!!!

I have been going to Isaacson Gentle Dentistry for about a year and a half. I had some major fears prior to going there and they have completely taken ALL fears away! I love going to the dentist now! They are so kind and caring and make me feel like I’m the only patient they have! I have had my teeth straightened with Invisalign here and it is an amazing transformation! I am so happy with the results and am no longer afraid to smile without covering my smile! Loud and proud thanks to Isaacson Gentle Dentistry! Thank you!

Why didn’t I do this sooner? That is what I was asking myself after leaving Dr. Isaacson’s office yesterday. After years of avoiding the dentist I saw a review online for Isaacson Gentle Dentistry and decided to check them out. When I got to their office I was warmly greeted as soon as I walked through the door and didn’t have to wait long to be seen. Ashley K. was friendly and walked me through the whole process, and was very knowledgeable in every question I threw at her. Janice did a spectacular job cleaning my poor, neglected teeth, she explained everything she was doing and gave me recommendations what I should do to keep them healthy. Dr. Isaacson aka “Dr. Zen” immediately put me at ease. He sat and listened to all of my concerns. I have never had a doctor check the surrounding areas of the mouth, jaw, tongue to verify the overall health, he was very thorough. I will be bringing my 7 year old to see Dr. Isaacson and his team for her next check up!!

After having braces as a child, my teeth looked wonderful. As I grew older and began my life out on my own, I never made time to seek dental cleaning. My excuse was, if I floss and brush after every meal, I should be ok for now. I’ll make an appointment later on. The, “Later on”, became years. I kept making excuses, trying to convince myself that my teeth would be okay. After all, I had braces and my teeth looked wonderful…five years ago they did. Now they were showing signs of the enamel chipping in front on the bottom. The five years turned into ten years and then twenty years. Honestly, I am ashamed for going so long without seeing a dentist. Now my molars were showing signs of decay from the years if eating late at night and not brushing my teeth. I also had acid reflux which contributed to the thinning of the enamel. A little over two months ago my wife talked me into going to her Dentist, Dr. Isaacson. I had my initial cleaning which was a little painful when the hygienist hit a decayed molar. She stopped immediately and calmly told me she’d get Dr. Isaacson and he’d be in shortly. About five minutes later he arrived into the room and we talked about options for restoring my teeth. My heart sank when he mentioned tooth extraction. The last option was crowning my teeth. That was the option I chose. Today I have my teeth restored with crowns and my bite and smile has never been better! All at Isaacson Dental are true professionals that care about their patients in every aspect! I cannot thank Dr. Isaacson and all of the staff for their kindness, compassion and taking the fear away from going to the dentist. A valuable lesson learned. Don’t make excuses for not seeing a dentist. Please see a dentist regularly. Please see Dr. Isaacson for regular dental cleaning or cosmetic dental repair. You will not regret it. I regret not seeing him sooner.

I’d highly recommend Isaacson Gentle Dentistry. I started going here over 15 years ago and after 10 years I decided to look for an option closer to home. I proceeded to work with two other dental offices but couldn’t recreate the feeling and care that I experienced from IGD. After a 5 year hiatus, I decided to return and am very happy I did. It’s the same great place it was 15 years ago. I can’t recommend Dr Isaacson and the team enough. They have been amazing for a long time and continue to impress. Strongly Recommend!

Kara T. from St Paul, MN (Source: Yelp)


Issacsons gentle dentistry is a great place to go! The staff and dentists are all so friendly and knowledgable. Even though I’ve moved so the location isn’t as close as other places, I find it is worth the drive to get such quality care for my teeth and have such a great experience at the dentist. I would recommend (and have recommended) this place to everyone!

Kristina G. from Ramsey, MN (Source: Yelp)


I normally don’t write reviews, but the outstanding staff and service at Isaacson Gentle Dentistry is worth talking about!  They are great!  I’ve been a patient since 2005 and have nothing but positive things to say.  I’ve had a lot of work done on my teeth and have always felt Dr. Isaacson and his team do an outstanding job of explaining what’s going on and provide me with affordable options.   I’m currently finishing up my Invisalign and I couldn’t be happier with the results.  I’ve received numerous compliments on how good my teeth look.  This makes me feel great!  Not only is Dr. Isaacson great, along with his wonderful, friendly staff, but his office is immaculate.   The atmosphere and employees provide a warm, relaxed, and even fun experience.  Give them a try…trust me you’ll smile!  =)

Several years ago I ran into an issue with my insurance company( plan changes). I had to change dentists. I found Dr Isaacsons office, and have never felt better about the care and service done at the office. All of the staff is kind, caring and honest. I would recommend this office to anyone. Thank you for everything that you do. The bridge that was just finished is wonderful.

The care I received wasn’t just “good”, it was exceptional! Knowing I needed work done on my teeth, I was fearful in going back due to the worry I would be shamed by the dentist and staff for not having gone to a dentist in some time. This was not the case at all. Going in, I was greeted with friendly and comforting staff who passed no judgment or shame over me. They worked in partnership with me to discuss what a course of action could be to work towards a smile I could feel confident to show off. I felt I had a voice in my treatment plan and got excited as going to be seen opened up new possibilities for me. My hygienist, Michelle was very sweet and personable. She allowed me to feel comfortable and at ease. Even during my initial check up she introduced me to other dental assistants (Ashlee- who I did end up having as an assistant in future appointments) who would potentially be working with me in other appointments. That meant a lot as it she went out of my way to help me feel okay, and as I went in for my next appointment there was an absence of fear/anxiety as I knew a familiar face who’d be working with me! Ashlee and Tara were an incredible team and I absolutely loved having them work on my mouth. Seriously… adored having them! Again, Ashlee and Tara went above and beyond the call of duty to check in with my comfort level. I travel just over an hour to come to this dentist simply because of the service and how everyone of these ladies work with each individual. Ashlee is a phenomenal staff! When I was being seen by another person she came out of her way to pop in and say, “hello”. I have worked with Michelle, Ashlee, Tara Peterson, Emily, Dr.W, and Dr. I, all have been incredible and top notch. The compassion and genuine care these ladies hold is astonishing. Emily and Ashlee, as the assistants truly did what they could to ensure I felt anxiety free, warm, and pain free while being seen. If you’ve avoided the dentist due to fear of judgment, shame, or pain I am tell you, this is the clinic you’ve been needing. Here, you will be met with a shame free space, sweet and joy filled staff, and comfort as you are being seen. I will continue making the day trip up because this dentistry is a treasure! So, go… Check em’ out

I had a TBI over a year ago and at that time I was using Invisalign through this dental office. I was in the hospital for 2 months and forgot about the retainers due to my head injury. Yesterday I went to get my teeth cleaned and get measured to restart the Invisalign process. Everyone was very gentle, understanding and accommodating. Dr Isaacson came to say Hi to me even though Dr Peterson (who was very knowledgeable and nice!) had checked my teeth. Sara did an excellent job cleaning my teeth and they feel great now! I love this place!

Disclaimer:  writing this review because I want to ….only started with Isaacson in the recent past so no personal connection. Being of retirement age and not blessed with wonderful teeth, I have spent my share of time in the dental chairs of several different dentists and been cared for by many different office staff support people starting at a very young age.  The Isaacson team is, without exception is the gold standard of dental care. It is rare that I give anything a 10 on a 10 scale. This group deserves a 10.  They simply want to be the best, they work at it, and seem to never forget that it is all about the patient.  Sound a little too good to be true?  I have no hesitancy in signing my name to this review.  Roger W. Berg

I would definitely recommend anyone who is searching for a dentist, especially people who have had pain at the dentist in the past, try Isaacson Gentle Dentistry. They actually are gentle; it’s not just the name. In the past dental care has caused me great amounts of pain and I learned to be skeptical when the dentist or hygienist says that it won’t hurt but I have been going here for a few years now and have never experienced any pain. They clearly explain all of the options and associated costs and offer great dental care in a serene setting with a very personable and knowledgeable staff.

Isaacson Gentile Dentistry has been my dental provider for about 15 years now and they have done an excellent job in taking care of my dental needs. They encourage good dental care and twice a year provide an excellent “well care” check and cleaning of the teeth. When additional work has been needed, they have taken care of both the treatment and seamless billing/insurance interface to make everything as easy and comfortable as possible. I highly recommend the friendly staff at Isaacson’s for all your dental needs. Tom Youngquist

I trust all of the staff so much I drive over 2.5 hours just to get my dental work done from Isaacson Gentle Dentistry. I have dental anxiety and once I found this place and getting to know their staff, I no longer need to take anxiety medication to make it to the dentist. I have had a lot of dental work done in my life and I can easily say this place is by far the best dental experience I have ever had! I recommend this dental practice to all of my friends. It is well worth the drive!

I’ve been going to Isaacson for a few years now and couldn’t be more pleased! All the staff I’ve encountered are extremely nice and professional and appear genuine. Dr Isaacson is top notch and explains every situation and possible route of action in easy to understand language and appears to want what’s best for you long term, not what will get them the most money. I’d recommend Isaacson Gentle Dentistry to everyone!

I highly recommend Dr Isaacson and his staff for your dental work. We first met him when our daughter needed emergency dental work at Christmas some years ago. Dr Dan went out of his way to help her after hours. Subsequently, my husband and I have become patients and appreciate the caring and professionalism that we receive. When our son and family moved here, they also became patients. What better recommendation is there??
