Check out what some of our happy patients are saying about us:

Long time visitor, first time reviewer…all that to say, Loop Dental is a awesome. I’ve been a patient at the North Loop site for close to 3yrs now and its a place I recommend and send all my friends. The practice aesthetics are cool, fresh, and modern; great modern equipment; plus there are snacks, water, and seltzer while you wait. Administrative staff is exceptional – they take the time to get to know you and are pretty flexible working with your schedule to get you in for appointments and any billing items. Brooke, my hygienist, is great. She’s got a nice sock game and quick wit, but more importantly an exceptional memory – convo is always fun knowing she’s taken the time to remember me as a person and chat with me through any service. I never feel judge if i’m not flossing, although she like to remind you the importance. I’d call her a friend, even if she would just call me a patient. Dr. Hannon – great teeth but also personable and funny, plus she’ll always stop by to say hi. Dr. Bates (who my friends and I affectionately call Dr. Loop) is great at answering any questions and ensuring you’re having a solid experience – plus I respect anyone who has a well groomed beard. All-in-all, I really enjoy Loop Dental. The staff is extremely calm and welcoming; you can tell they’ve taken to time to form a good team. The dental team is funny, but take their craft seriously (Brooke has an epic tooth tattoo), and love to get to know their patients. Plus, like your classic dental visit, I always get a bag of mini toothpaste, tooth brush, and floss – great for when family and guest visit or i’m traveling. Hard to believe, i don’t have any issues with the team, because no one is perfect, but honestly they are great. Never had issues with billing, scheduling, or just outcomes with any cleaning or filling (they’ve constantly let me know if something doesn’t feel right to come back and they’ll fix it – luckily nothing hasn’t felt right). Check out the team in North Loop, you wont be disappointed!

Such an overall great experience, I have had a few consultations now as well as treatments and I felt I was in good hands for all of it. The environment is so clean and COVID cautious. The staff were all excellent and answered my questions, Dr. Hannon is so personable and made me feel at ease but also very professional. I highly recommend!

I cannot recommend the team at Loop Dental highly enough. The entire staff from the front desk, to the dentists, to the hygienists are top of the line. State of the art equipment, quick and efficient appointments, and excellent customer service. I must also mention my amazing hygienist Brooke who is truly a joy to work with. She does excellent work (my smile has never looked better), is a blast to talk with during my appointments, and makes going to the dentist something I not only don’t mind, I honestly look forward to it. If you need a dentist, look no further.

One of the best offices I’ve been in! Staff is very friendly and truly seem to enjoy their jobs. There is always laughter which is so refreshing. Oh, and the dental care is top notch! Dr Bates is very patient, thorough and knowledgeable. He and his staff go the extra mile to ensure that your dental appointment runs smoothly. Even though it’s a dentist appointment, they always make you feel like you matter.

My first experience at Loop Dental was wonderful. I was greeted by two friendly front desk staff. The cleanliness and organization of the office helped alleviate my dental anxiety. My hygienist was gentle and thorough. Dr. Hannon not only explained everything in great detail but she also referenced X-ray photos of areas I needed treatment on. No one wishes for dental work but I felt like I was thoroughly educated and well informed. I knew that I was in good hands! Thank you so much for a first great experience at your office and look forward to my return visit.

Nadia E. from Northeast Minneapolis, Minneapolis, MN (Source: Yelp)


I can not recommend this place highly enough. The staff is beyond friendly – one hygienist even comforted my infant when he got fussy so I could finish my exam – no joke.  And Dr. Bates himself is a perfectionist, which is exactly what you want out of a dentist. I finally found a dentist that I trust to tell me what I need and when I need it. If you need a dentist, you need to go here!

Top notch service, I was able to do my first consult with Dr Bates who was very attentive and informative on my dental treatment plan. The staff is very receptive and friendly right from Sarah the Manager who received me, to Jamie the assistant and Ben who clearly articulated the estimate of my costs at the end of my consult – did I mention state of the art clean facility. Glad I found Loop Dental!

This place is amazing! Best dental experience I’ve had! The people are super friendly and knowledgeable, the place is clean, and they put a lot of effort into making it a great experience (especially for patients who may have fear of the dentist). They also don’t have the “shame-y” vibe that most places do. I’ve recommended them to multiple family and friends.

Jaysa J. from Minneapolis, MN (Source: Yelp)


Love this place- it’s unlike any dentist’s office I’ve been to before. Everyone (including the receptionist, hygienist, and dentists) was extremely friendly and helpful. They really took the extra time to make sure I understood exactly what they were talking about. Dr. Bates neatly laid out the procedures I need to have and prioritized everything- without any sort of pressure or judgment. The office itself is also beautiful, very clean, and modern. So happy to have such an amazing dental office in North Loop!!

Irina B. from Barcelona, Spain (Source: Yelp)


Fantastic office, which was both helpful and very friendly. The space is beautiful. The hygienist I had was phenomenal, very gentle. David is also great, very thoughtful not in a hurry. I love how involved in the North Loop community they are! Great add to the neighborhood.

I’ve been going to both offices for about a year now and have always enjoyed my experience. Everyone is always very warm and welcoming, I’m always greeted with a smile, they are on top of communication and are easy to get ahold of. Rarely do I have to wait more than 5 minutes after checking in. Always very clean and following Covid regulations. I had a cleaning today and Anna was very pleasant and gentle on my teeth, which was so nice! Definitely recommend.

Nat O. from The Strip, Las Vegas, NV (Source: Yelp)


This was my second visit at Loop Dental with Dr. Bates. Phenomenal service. Everyone that works here is pleasant, professional and competent. I’ve had one cleaning and also had 2 fillings redone. They were very helpful in working with my insurance. I can’t recommend them enough. I live in the loop now, but even if I move outside of the cities, this is my dentist.

Ben A. from Excelsior, MN (Source: Yelp)


Great! I’ve seen Dr. Bates for several years now at their original location (and his father before that). They have a fantastic team that have always been accommodating and friendly. Today I chipped a tooth and they put in a filling within hours. So helpful! I also love their clean, modern office and the new convenient location. I’ve already started recommended Loop Dental to my friends and coworkers.

Melinda R. from South Haven Charter Township, MI (Source: Yelp)


I have never been fond of dentists. I received excellent care from Dr. Bates and the Loop Dental staff. They fixed my cracked crown right away. It was basically painless. They went above and beyond just to insure I was comfortable. Dr Bates called the next day to make sure all was well. I will definitely be returning for my annual care.

Lynn Sorensen (Source: Facebook)


Loop Dental staff is always friendly, professional and personable!!! They are very accommodating in scheduling appointments. My cleaning and check-up appointments are thorough…but quick. Any questions I have are answered in terms that I understand.

Matthew B. from Washington, DC (Source: Yelp)


Had a great experience with Dr Bates. In town for a few weeks and walked by the office, so decided to stop in to ask if they could help with some dental work. They went above I expected providing great service and setting up a plan of care while I am in town. Dr Bates explained everything while he was doing it and and was very thorough. Felt like I received the best care.

I’ve had a great experience with Loop. They are always very nice, they constantly walk you through every step and procedure. They regularly stop to make sure you understand and to hear your comments or questions. The technology is advanced which is unlike many of my experiences and makes me feel as though I’m getting more proactive care. They email every statement in advance and all the forms so its very flexible and convenient for my schedule. The staff is always very welcoming and polite, the office is always very clean. Its been a great experience thus far.

My experience at Loop Dental was great. Olivia was my hygienist and she was so kind and walked me through each step of my cleaning/checkup. Olivia took her time and really worked hard to get rid of some stains on my teeth which were bothering me for a while. Also the office is super clean and everyone is friendly.

B W. from New Brighton, MN (Source: Yelp)


I really can’t express in words how my experience was, from the front desk personnel to the dental assistants and most importantly, to the dr . All were truly some of the nicest and authenticity caring staff I’ve ever come acrossed. But all that means nothing if the skill set isn’t there, but it is and way above, most likely the most talented and knowledgeable staff that I’ve ever experienced , I have a huge fear of the dentist and was only greeted with caring actions and understanding , never shamed or was bothered if I needed to take a break, and my results are going from a smile that I’ve been embarrassed my whole life to a smile I’m proud of and it looks like me, not fake, just a much better version of my original smile. I would never lead anyone on, I take recommending someone very seriously , so once again, this is the best dental office that I have ever experienced. Actually , this is the best office in general they I’ve ever experienced , thank you to all of the staff and to dr bates, you treated me with dignity and respect and I’ve gone for being freighted of the dentist to actually can’t wait to see everyone next appointment

Mason S. from Minneapolis, MN (Source: Yelp)


I recently moved to Minneapolis from Eau Claire, WI and I chose Loop Dental as the experts to help maintain my smile. I am nothing but impressed by the professionalism and friendliness of the staff here. The work Dr. Bates had done was fantastic. He found areas that my old dentist hadn’t performed the best work on and so he gave some extra attention to fix it up for me even. If you need a dentist or contemplate your current office you visit; I highly recommend going here.

Loved my experience at Loop Dental! Would highly recommend if you’re looking for a high class, efficient, and thorough dental exam. Their bedside manner alone is worth the visit and their dedication to keeping all their patients healthy and safe during COVID-19 is unparalleled.

Loop Dental made the entire process so easy right from the start of scheduling. My appointment was scheduled quickly, and I was provided multiple reminders. I was able to fill out a detailed client questionnaire prior to the appointment which allowed me to be directly seen with no additional wait times or paperwork. The staff were extremely friendly and professional. Dental visits have typically made me anxious, but from the care I received, I felt really comfortable. The doctor and staff answered any questions I had, and the services I was recommended were clearly communicated with me. I felt like Loop Dental took more time in educating me about my services rather than just telling me. It’s a place where you can tell each and every person cares about their quality of patient care. I could not be more happy for selecting Loop Dental!

Service started with a smile and friendly demeanor when I was greeted by Sarah the receptionist. Exceptional hospitality and professionalism displayed by hygienist Jenna. Followed up by excellent care and easy-to-understand information regarding the health of my mouth, from Dr. Bates. Upon exit, once again, Sarah provided the utmost care and kindness I would find in a friend. So grateful to have found a group I can trust with my dental health!

Absolutely great service, fine team, clean office, easy to make appointment and to find office. One time I wanted to come in earlier and they even made the necessary accomodations for me to do so. Glad to be a customer and great prices as well. I had a deep cleaning and it didn’t cost an arm and a leg

Dan C. from Minneapolis, MN (Source: Yelp)


We have been coming Loop Dental for several months after moving to the twin cities. I knew we needed to find a dentist for the family, but dragged my feet until life kicked me in the pants – An old filling had crack open and it was a bad scene in there. I called Loop and they fit me in the next day and did a wonderful job fixing the damage, replacing my filling etc. I have since been back as have my wife and son for routine cleanings and they are fantastic every time. The office is also a breath of fresh air. I am so used to the old fashioned dentist office that is sterile, cramped, with 80’s soft rock playing – like the world stopped 30 years ago. Loop Dental is a modern, inviting place, seems almost like a spa. There is lots of natural light, too. The people are very friendly and they are great communicating with you over text and email.

Jakesa T. from Burnsville, MN (Source: Yelp)


So happy that I found this dental office. I think I might switch! The space is very modern, bright, open and very welcoming! They have a variety of beverages for guests and even cookies, yes cookies at the dentist! That alone makes it theeee best! To the real stuff! The provider that saw my 2 year old son introduced himself to us in the lobby and made us feel exceptionally comfortable. He treated my family as if he’d known us before. He was very patient, kind and gentle with my son and gave us lots of encouragement. He left with a smile on his face and a small toy! Very pleased and will continue to have these lovely people work inside our mouths!

I wanted to reach out to explain the best dental/medical advocate vs. insurance, I have ever met. I would know because I am a three time breast cancer survior, and going to the doctor is basically my job. I left Minnesota in August for California. Laura had contacted me, late fall, and said she thought I hadn’t gotten enough covered from Atena for the work I had done at Loop Dental (amazing place period- everyone). She battled hard and emerged victoriously- with $165. To show you my perspective of the work she did for me: I require two bags of Chemo every third week at $13,000.00 per bag- it’s a maintenance program. While I am covered by medicare, and have secondary coverage with BCBS-Federal, no one has EVER, worked as hard to help make sure I was getting what I was covered for, like Laura. I have had countless surgeries, radiations and the whole, as they say, enchilada or nine yards (pick your simile). She is a ray of light (as is all of Loop Dental) in a very dark industry, though she is especially bright. Please make sure you do whatever you can to retain her and do what needs to be done for her to continue to grow within the company. Total Rock Star.

The entire experience was great. The location was impeccably clean. Every staff member I interacted with was warm, personable and knowledgeable. Some additional perks- 1) a text line that connects to a staff member in the office, 2) a free and easy parking lot. Needless to say I’ve found my new dental office.

Carly Klass (Source: Google)


Wow! I have not been to the dentist in a few years and I was greeted by the most welcoming and helpful staff. Each staff member was attentive, provided me detailed information and answered all of my questions. Their front desk staff personally set up an appointment with an Endodontics. I highly recommend getting an appointment here.

Brianna M. from Manhattan, NY (Source: Yelp)


Loop Dental provides such a pleasant experience! The facility is beautiful with all brand new and high tech equipment. The staff is extremely friendly and knowledgable, making you feel very comfortable during your visit. Dr. Bates is an expert at what he does and provides a very thorough examination. I had to have some work done on my teeth and it was the easiest and most pain free dental work I’ve ever had!!

Gabriel M. from Minneapolis, MN (Source: Yelp)


So I was running late for my appointment and they still got me in! They had a full schedule booked up with patients and they took there time with me and worked on the stuff that we could get done! I had a cancellation fee before from a different dentist office so that’s why I was worried and stuck in traffic! I was so happy that they did that! They all are very kind and nice. The best part when I come in is how they inform me every step of the way so I know what’s going on! I highly recommend Loop Dental!

After 16 years of being a faithful dental patient at Nicollet Station Dental, I decided to make a change because my dentist retired. My initial visit today with the Loop Dental Team and Dr. Hannah was great. I felt safe and trusted in the office right away. The dental office is beautiful, clean and outfitted with great technology. Loop Dental is a block from my condo – I love supporting businesses in my neighborhood.

Great experience at Loop Dental! Very warm, friendly and professional staff. I have a history of feeling anxious going to the dentist but will continue going back to Loop. From the moment I checked in until the visit was complete they helped me to feel comfortable and calm. They had very clear safety and infection prevention practices in place. Thanks!

Ashley K. from Hiawatha, Minneapolis, MN (Source: Yelp)


Loop Dental does an amazing job! I’ve been in 4 times over the last month or so to get a bunch of work done. Each time was a pleasant experience. Dr. Bates is friendly, warm, and very gentle. He is very knowledgeable and takes the time to educate you about what’s going on in your mouth. The rest of the staff are very kind as well! They really master the art of personal care here. Best dental experience of my life!
