Caring for You and Your Smile

What patients first notice when they come into our practice is the thoughtfulness of our office design. With beautiful calming cool colors, amazingly comfortable chairs and a stress-reducing architectural layout, we have thought of nearly every way to help put our patients at ease. Being sweet is welcoming each and every patient of ours with a genuine smile and speaking with a tone that lets them know they are the most important piece to our practice, our patient. As our patients move through our practice and enter our operatories they see that we have done a lot of research and working with architects, interior designers, and ergonomic specialists, we have created a stress-free bubble in a sometimes stressful environment. From the moment you enter our practice until you exit our door, we strive to provide you with the sweetest dental experience.

  • Dr. Dan Hoang, D.D.S.

    Dentist

    Originally from Louisiana, Dr. Hoang decided to take his southern charm to Minnesota at the age of 3.  Here in Anoka County he has been a Flyer, a Graywolf, a Falcon, and a Cardinal.  He then went on to graduate with high honors from the University of St. Thomas in Saint Paul with a degree in Biology.  Due to his great rowing abilities he developed while being a member of UST Crew, he was able to then journey across the river to earn his Doctor of Dental Surgery degree from the University of Minnesota in Minneapolis.

    After graduation, Dr. Hoang practed in a private practice setting for nearly 4 years in Coon Rapids and at the Center of Smile Enhancement in Minnetonka. In 2015, Dr. Hoang and wife founded Sweet Tooth Dentistry to fulfill their dream of serving their family, friends and neighbors in their hometown. Dr. Hoang truly enjoys dentistry with a passion.  No matter how intimidating the situation (he did his first crown on his now mother-in-law) or rewarding the task (he served in Team Smile providing free dental care for underserved children in association with the Minnesota Twins), he adamantly states dentistry is the greatest career, ever.  Dr. Hoang believes that dentistry is a unique blend of skill, art and fun. To be a great dentist you must embody all of the aspects to make great impressions on people and then make great smiles for people.

    As a member of the American Dental Association, the Minnesota Dental Association, the Minneapolis District Dental Society, and the Delta Epsilon Sigma Honor Society, Dr. Hoang is dedicated to providing comprehensive oral care to people of all ages and walks of life.  He appreciates the chance to be the touch of sweetness as the partner in your family’s oral health.

    In his spare time, Dr. Hoang enjoys many sports and testing his skills on many musical instruments. However, most of his time is enjoyed by being with his wife Karmin and their two lovely daughters.

  • Kate, R.D.H

    Hygienist / Patient Care Coordinator

    Minnesota born and raised! Kate has resided in and around the Andover, MN area most of her life. Her passion has always been providing a helping hand to people in any way possible. However, the day came when she knew dental health was her future and she earned her dental hygiene degree at Normandale Community College in Bloomington, MN.

    Kate developed her talents for helping people while fulfilling multiple roles including operations and management at a salon for nearly a decade. This taught her the importance of leadership, teamwork, and superb customer service. She has spent the past 3 years working at a private dental practice in the northwest suburban area as both an office administrator and dental hygienist. She has found her true passion in dental health where she can enjoy building relationships with patients and helping them perfect their smiles however she can!

    In her spare time Kate enjoys spending time with her husband Bo and their puppy Raylan. She is very active and you can find her at the gym throwing weights around almost daily. She enjoys traveling and will most likely throw a tantrum if she doesn’t get to Cancun once per year. When she isn’t flossing or critiquing her husband’s brushing technique, she can be found making a mess in the kitchen.

    “Having the opportunity to work within Sweet Tooth Dentistry from the beginning has been an absolute dream come true! I want to tell the world about what we are doing here – creating an atmosphere that breathes an energetic, fun, and delightful experience in the dental world.

  • Sarah, L.D.A.

    Dental Assistant

    Born and raised in Minnesota, Sarah grew up in Ham Lake near the fresh clipped grass of the Majestic Oaks golf course. At 13 she made the trek and relocated to Oak Grove. As a pretty awesome athlete her whole life, she was involved with softball, volleyball, cheerleading, and gymnastics (her favorite). As a child she always knew she wanted a career that involved helping others. Initially, she considered becoming a nurse. However, through the last couple of years in high school she learned a ton about the field of dentistry from her step-mother (who also happens to be a dental assistant) and the rest was history.

    Sarah went on to graduate in the accelerated Dental Assisting program with Honors at Herzing University in Crystal, MN in 2011. Over the last 3 years, Sarah has gained a great amount of knowledge and experience working for a large dental group. She knows that the dental office can sometimes be stressful so she always strives to make it a fun and comfortable experience for her patient. Sarah spends most of her spare time with her husband Chris and their cat Farley who is actually more like a dog! Whether she is spending time with her parents, learning new crochet patterns from her Grandma or enjoying Grandma’s baked goods, Sarah is always up for a good conversation with pretty much anyone she meets. However, if the sun is beaming and the weather is nice, you can try your best to catch her as she is almost always rollerblading or super-duper-power-walking!

    “I am so excited to start this journey with Dr. Hoang at his dream practice. At Sweet Tooth Dentistry we are not just a team, we are a family and anyone who comes to see us will feel right at home. We all strive to make our patients as comfortable as possible and of course make them laugh and thoroughly enjoy their dental experience.”

  • Jaime, L.D.A.

    Patient Care Coordinator

    Born and raised in the land of 11,842 lakes, Jaime is Minnesota nice through and through. Growing up northwest of the Twin Cities just along the good ol’ Mississippi, Jaime is no stranger to excellent personalities and excellent dentistry! While some children tend to not want their dentist as their BFF, Jaime knew that the dental office was her dream career due to the positive, energetic and fun experiences she had as a child (she actually looked forward to each visit). Understanding the hesitations that others may have, Jaime has always felt that working in a dental office would give her the opportunity to help create the same great experiences that she received herself as a young patient. Jaime’s goal is to make each and every patient feel welcome and comfortable in this wonderful office!

    Jaime comes to Sweet Tooth Dentistry with a ton of smarts. Afterall, she graduated with honors from Hennepin Technical College in 2008 with an Associates of Applied Science as a Licensed Dental Assistant. Immediately after graduating, she launched her dental career by accepting a position at a large dental practice. This large practice setting gave her the opportunity to explore, learn, and master many skills ranging from clinical expertise to business wizardry. In addition to her fantastic dental skills, in the years prior to entering the dental field, Jaime held a management position in retail which helped her develop a strong understanding of how to create and maintain exceptional customer service for our patients.

    “The opportunity to work with Dr. Hoang and the team at Sweet Tooth Dentistry really is a dream come true! Everyone is very passionate about the quality of dentistry and the personal experience that we provide and that is what sets us apart!

  • Whitney, R.D.H.

    Hygienist

    Born and raised in the Cyclone State, Whitney grew up in northern Iowa before she decided to stroll down to Ames and attend Iowa State University. Although she did everything she could while balancing her studies and working hard for the football team, not much success was found on that grassy football field. However, Whitney did gain a great amount of success in the development of her leadership abilities and team-working skills which make her an incredible part of the Sweet Tooth Dentistry team.

    After obtaining her bachelor’s degree from Iowa State University, Whitney went on to earn her dental hygiene degree from Iowa Central Community College and graduated with honors. While working hard to obtain her degree to graduate with honors, Whitney also made it a priority to provide free dental care for the underserved as well as spending time to educate children in the community about dental health. Those experiences helped shape her into the awesome hygienist she is today!

    When Whitney is not busy beating up sugar bugs and making teeth ridiculously clean, she enjoys cheering on the Iowa State Cyclones, Chicago Cubs, and much to her fiance’s satisfaction: the one and only Minnesota Vikings. You can also catch her exploring the parks, restaurants and shops of the Twin Cities, which she is proud to call her new home.

    “Working at Sweet Tooth Dentistry is a dream come true. I never imagined work could be so fun. The people here are so warm and welcoming, and you can tell they sincerely care about each and every patient. It is truly like a home away from home for me.”

  • Ashley

    Patient Care Coordinator

    Being a true Minnesotan since she drew her first breath, Ashley has the “Uff-da” spirit through and through. She actually grew up in Blaine on the same acreage that her dad was raised on and was quite the artist behind a snowmobile and four-wheeler. While attending Spring Lake Park High School, Ashley did manage to take an adventure to Germany, Austria, and Switzerland with her German class. But like any real Minnesotan will tell ya, nothing beats coming home.

    Luckily for us, Ashley made her way to back Minnesota and began pursuing her love of art, style and fashion. Ashley honed her talents and techniques and became an expert in cosmetics while working at a local department store. If that was not enough, Ashley had the determination and desire to attend the Minneapolis Business College where she worked hard and successfully earned her degree in graphic design. Since then Ashley has worked in many different positions in which had to manage working in fast paced environments while making sure every customer was well taken care of.

    This ability to multitask and work well under pressure will be incredibly valuable to allow us to continue to provide exceptional care to our patients. At the end of the day, although Ashley comes to us with a wide range of experience in the workforce, the most important job she had and will ever have is being a mom. Ashley is thoughtful, kind, and eager to help all our patients with any administrative tasks that may arise.

  • Courtney

    Patient Care Coordinator

    Growing up in the city of Ramsey, Courtney has lived in Minnesota all her life. She spent many of her summers playing competitive softball and attended Anoka High School. After graduation she continued her studies and earned a bachelor’s degree in Psychology with High Honors. Although she started off quite shy, Courtney ended up working at Mercy Hospital as an EKG technician working with patients. Soon she realized that she loved working with people and was pretty darn good at it. The experience of working to help patients really brought her out of her shell and steered her towards working for several large companies specializing in customer service.

    Her adventures into dentistry happened by chance. Courtney was looking for a change and ended up working for a large dental office in the northern suburbs where her favorite mother- in-law worked as a hygienist! She worked there for over 6 years while learning so much and honed her skills in working patients and comforting them while expertly coordinating their healthcare.
    Courtney spends most of her spare time with her husband, two little girls, and their dog Jack. When she gets a moment to herself you can find her refinishing furniture or continuously decorating her home. Being outside and anywhere near water is a favorite for Courtney and her family.

    “I am so excited to work at Sweet tooth Dentistry and to work with Dr. Hoang again! He is a great dentist and a great person! He truly cares so much about his patients and their experience here. I am excited to get to know the patients and to learn even more!”
