I would never ever go to a different dentist.  I have been seeing Dr. Joan for at least 8-10 years, as I hate going to the dentist and hate dental work ( they make you super comfortable) and who doesn’t want the most gentle woman dentist in town.  They patiently call me when I don’t show up for appts and cleanings…and they really spend the time when they make crowns.  
The best dentist in Mpls. Go see Dr. Joan.

This is practice is outstanding. They are excellent dentists and dental assistants. Their equipment is up-to-date. They are fastidious about cleanliness without being overbearing. The atmosphere is warm and friendly without being excessive. The work they do is top-rate and they do not press clients for procedures about which the client is still considering. They communicate very well and give you detailed information about the work they are doing or plan to do.

Weird to say that you love a dentist, but this place is great. I have recommended it to some friends with dentist anxiety and they had good experiences! The staff go out of their way to make sure you’re comfortable and informed.

It’s so hard to find a good dentist. This being my first dentist visit needed since I moved to the area they were fantastic and I will be sticking with them! Very personal and professional! I had chipped my front tooth and half of my tooth was missing, they made my smile look good as new again! Very happy with the results and their pleasant customer service and personal accommodations with anything I needed and very knowledgeable for any questions or concerns I had. I definitely recommend them!

Friendly place. I have twins and one of them is absolutely energetic. He cannot handle to sit still per too long and Sarah, did an amazing job interacting with my son and keeping him entertained while taking care of his teeth. I do recommend this place and strongly recommend to ask for Sarah to take care of your little energetic one.

Such a great dental office and staff!! They have provided me with top notch care – Dr. Joan Jakubas really cares about her patients and wants the best for us. Also the dental assistants are a pleasure! They frequently ask how you are doing, remember personal life details, and don’t make you feel rushed. The massage chairs and blankets are just the icing on the cake of this already wonderful dental office & staff! Free parking too!

I am a regular patient of the Minnehaha Falls Family Dental, and from the very beginning I felt welcomed, comfortable, and taken a very good care of. Personnel at the clinic is very professional, attentive to small details, encouraging and calming (when needed). I was recommended by my family member and now recommend it myself.

I recently moved across the river from Mpls to farmington, I have changed my health care providers to the dakota county area, but I will not change my dental clinic. The staff and providers are all excellent, front desk staff are always bright and friendly even when I have the first morning appointment. I always know what my cost will be in advance when any treatment is recommended. The care by my hygienist and provider is exceptional.

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


I used to hate going to the dentist, and now I don’t mind at all! The staff is friendly and caring and when I leave there after a cleaning my mouth doesn’t hurt for a week later – like it did at my last dentist. Dr. Joan is so relational and friendly, as well as excellent at her job… gentle! They are all like friends and I guarantee once you’ve been here you won’t go anywhere else for your dental needs.

Gerilyn H. from Shakopee, MN (Source: Yelp)


My family has been going to Jakubas Dental, now Minnehaha Falls Dental for nearly 23 years. We always receive the finest dental care in a friendly and compassionate environment. We have since moved from Minneapolis to Shakopee and continue to have Dr. Jakubas and Dr. Swanson provide our dental care. We wouldn’t have it any other way, the doctors and their staff are simply the best! The Hommerding Family

I’ve been going to Dr. Jakubas since her first office on 42nd & 38th.  It has been a pleasure watching her practice grow into her third and present location.  I never hesitate to recommend Jakubas Dental Clinic to friends looking for a new dentist.  The office staff, hygenists, dentists and assistants are all awesome. In my younger years I was always afraid to go to the dentist but now I actually look forward to my visits.  If you’re afraid to go to the dentist, this is definitely the place for you.

I love these people! They listen to their patients needs and concerns. I’ve never felt uncomfortable with the hygienist nor the doctor. The people at the front desk are great communicators and leave you feeling well taking care of on your way out the door. As a person of color I’ve felt uncomfortable and unimportant at nomourus dentistries, but this practice makes certain that they’re patients are treated with the upmost respect.

Kendra P. from Minneapolis, MN (Source: Yelp)


Joan is my favorite dentist ever!! Her staff is super friendly and helpful. I didn’t really like it when they told me that Diet Coke isn’t good for my teeth, but I guess nagging is the repetition of unpalatable truths. I even recommended Dr. Joan to my friend and she liked her and continues to go to her.

Steven T. from Minneapolis, MN (Source: Yelp)


I just moved to the area from out of state and had quite a bit of dental work needing to be done. I must say that all of the staff, from the front office, on back, of course including Dr Jakubas are wonderful. While going to the dentist is never fun, I can honestly say that this is the best experience I have had with a dentist that I have ever had, which in turn makes it far easier (while still not easy, at least for me) to go to the dentist than I have in the past. Thank you!

I have been a patient of Jakubus Dental Clinic for many years! They are so caring and friendly it makes going to the dentist so much easier. Also, the building is amazing and it also right off the blue line train. Thanks for looking after my teeth and dental health, Dr. Joan and staff!

Dental hygienist was thorough and provided information on issues or areas that I had questions or concerns about. All staff were pleasant and helpful. Questions were answered completely by the dentist. They are monitoring ongoing issues and provide information about the status. I highly recommend this clinic.

I’ve only been going here for a few months but I love it. The dental assistant actually explained the cleaning process and what they were doing while they were doing it, I’ve never had that type of experience. Dr. Jakubas is very kind and charming and does great work. This is really a great dental office. If you’re in the area and looking, give them a try, you won’t regret it.

A really outstanding dental office. I have been going for years, and recommend Minnehaha Falls Family Dental to all my family and friends. The staff is professional and so welcoming. They are excellent at keeping the visit comfortable and relaxing (for those of us with dental anxiety), and have been very accommodating. I broke a tooth in half at the end of the work day, biked over, and they were able to see me and make the situation bearable until I could get to an oral surgeon. In my book, the best dental office in the cities.

Mary B. from Minneapolis, MN (Source: Yelp)


As always, I am very happy to have Jakubas Dental (now Minnehaha Falls Dental) take care of my “teeth” needs and maintenance.  (I’ve lost count of the number of years I have been coming to them.  A friend initially recommended them for me).  My appointment yesterday was thorough, the hygienist and the dentist were friendly, careful and attentive to my questions.  The accounting receptionist spent extra time with me to make sure I understood my insurance options (I had to switch health insurance this year) and she clarified how things would work under the new plan I am considering.

I started seeing Dr. Joan and staff almost a decade ago after years of not seeking routine dental care. I had a few bad experiences with dentists in Chicago and Michigan and was not eager to “shop” for a new one in MN. Her entire team has changed my perspective on what care can look like, and I couldn’t be more pleased.

Mj L. from Minneapolis, MN (Source: Yelp)


I have been a client for over five years. They are quick to get you in if you have a dental emergency and very kind. They never pressure you to take x-rays, get fluoride rinses, or come in for cleanings. Their office is beautiful, cheerful, and the people working there seem to enjoy their jobs. They are always clear about costs and handle insurance smoothly. Top notch!

Carl A. from South Saint Paul, MN (Source: Yelp)


I’ve been going to Minnehaha Falls Dental for many years and I believe they are the best group of people I’ve ever used for my dental needs. Dr. Joan is definitely the best dentist I’ve ever had and her staff is top notch. I really like the building they’re in. Its very comfortable and unique. Very up to date with all the advances in dental care as well. I’d highly recommend it.

I just started going to Dr. Jakubas when I got dental insurance this year and I was easily won over. Most dentists do the same stuff as far as dentistry goes but the way the office runs can make the experience either enjoyable or a real pain. The Jakubas office has a lot of things going for it: 1) Friendly Staff – Dr. Jakubas, all the receptionists, and the dental hygienists are super friendly, easy-going, and chatty in a way that makes the time go by quickly. 2) Thorough – The receptionists always explains what my insurance will cover along with my options for price breaks. She even helped me schedule my fillings so I would get the most coverage and not pay out-of-pocket. 3) Quality – I overheard Dr. Jakubas and a receptionist talking about some convention they went to about the newest dental equipment and based on the videos they show me on the computer and the tooth x-rays that instantly come up on the screen, it seems to me they have the latest technology to make treatment easy and quick for patients. 4) Fun – The office makes me smile. They have a tooth-shaped pillow that they stick under my head whenever I sit down in the chair. They also have mobiles hanging from the ceiling at the exact location I have to look while getting my teeth cleaned. So far I have enjoyed watching both tiny sailboats and little white birds (Jonathan Livingston Seagull anyone?) softly bob around in the sky. It’s mesmerizing. Today I said I was cold and the hygienist even brought me a cozy blanket to warm me up. I was so snuggly with my blankie and tooth pillow that I took a little morning nap in the chair while they did a filling. Since my insurance kicked in, they have done a great job of getting my mouth in good shape again and it has been an incredibly pain-free process.
