Your Caring Eagan, MN Dental Office

Choosing a new dentist can feel overwhelming, especially when you have a variety of options. At Gentle Dental Eagan, we try to make your dental choice easy and stress-free by providing dedicated, patient-centered care. 

We treat all our patients with respect and try to make appointments pleasant, even for those with dental anxiety. We provide nitrous oxide (laughing gas) and oral sedation when necessary to help patients relax during dental procedures.

Dr. Michael and the rest of our staff are committed to providing gentle dentistry. As we jokingly say, we cater to cowards in our dental office, so if you feel like the Cowardly Lion when it comes to visiting the dentist, you have found your perfect dental home. 

We genuinely care about our patients, and Dr. Michael, our skilled dentist, enjoys building long-lasting relationships with everyone who visits us! We have proudly served families in our community since 1997, and we look forward to serving you.

Dental Services for the Entire Family

We provide a wide range of dental services to meet the needs of your entire family. Since we offer a variety of dental services, including preventive, restorative, and cosmetic procedures, we are prepared to address many oral health issues. Whether you need teeth replaced or a basic dental cleaning, our staff is ready to assist you. 

At Gentle Dental, we use the latest advanced methods and technologies, providing patients with unparalleled care and comfort.

Our advanced technologies include:

Digital X-Rays

Compared to old-fashioned x-ray units, digital x-rays provide higher quality, more detailed images that can be manipulated for optimal visualization. Digital x-rays also emit 90 percent less radiation than traditional machines, making them a safer choice for our patients.

Intraoral Cameras

For early detection of cavities and an accurate representation of conditions in the mouth, intraoral cameras are essential. Dr. Michael and his team use these cameras to show you what they see inside your mouth. This is excellent for increasing your understanding of various things going on in your mouth and the treatment needed to solve them.


DryShield is an incredible breakthrough device that protects your lips, cheek and tongue while you receive treatment. Instead of using claustrophobic rubber dams or having saliva pool up in your mouth, DryShield comfortably evacuates all liquids from your mouth while keeping you gently propped open. 

Payment Options for Your Dental Care

At Gentle Dental Eagan, we believe that cost should never come between you and the care you deserve. That’s why we accept a variety of dental insurances and payment options for your convenience. We also have a membership plan for patients without insurance that offers you and your family members 15% off any dental treatment in our office.

Unfortunately, we do not accept Medicaid or medical assistance programs as payment options in our dental office.

If you have questions about paying for your dental treatments, please give us a call for assistance. We are here to help you!
