What Sets Us Apart

Developing Healthier, More Confident Smiles

Dentistry, as practiced at Andrew L.F. Hegstad Family & Cosmetic Dentistry, starts with getting to know you as a person. We want to learn who you are, what is important in your life, about your health and wellbeing, and to understand your dental goals and any uncertainty you have.

This conversation begins with your initial consultation and continues in every exchange. The benefits of an open dialogue are many: you are able to express yourself without fear of being judged or lectured; you are reassured that we are here and listening, which creates a bond of trust; and we learn how we can help you in a manner that fits your situation.

For Dr. Hegstad and our team, dentistry is about caring for and helping you, beyond your teeth and oral health. Each of us wants you to achieve and maintain your healthiest, most confident smile – and to know we are here for you.

Why Choose Our Practice?

Longevity, Stability, and Reputation: Our office has been part of the community since it was opened in 1973. Dr. Hegstad was a patient here as a child, and bought the practice from his childhood dentist, to offer high-quality, personalized dentistry to his hometown.

Our staff members are committed to the practice; all have been here for more than ten years and two have been with the office for over 30 years! They are skilled, warm, and dedicated to ensuring everyone who walks through our doors immediately feels welcome and at home.

Over the years, we have built a strong reputation as a dental practice that focuses on your whole health and distinct needs. We help you take control of your health, providing useful education, so you are able to make informed decisions about your overall wellness.

Family Friendly: Your life is busy, and we want to make taking care of your smile – and those of your family members – as convenient as possible. That’s why we set aside blocks of time in our schedule for full families to come in together!

Beyond offering block appointments, we do everything possible to ensure positive and productive visits for each member of your family. We love introducing little ones to our office and make the experience fun by offering “chair rides”, so they can get comfortable with sitting in a treatment chair before they come for their first check-up!

Comfortable, Attentive Procedures: It is essential you are fully comfortable in our care. We’ll talk with you before, during, and after procedures to determine your comfort level and if there is anything that needs to be adjusted. We use the latest techniques in comfort management and ask that you let us know if you have any discomfort: we’ll immediately address the issue!
