Precision Dentistry with Compassion and Care

Does it Feel Like Going to the Dentist is a Major Ordeal, Every Time?

Dentists don’t take the time to fully explain what they’re doing. It’s like they don’t think I’m smart enough to understand.

In-network, out-of-network? Covered, not covered? Hidden fees and confusing invoices. Ugh! Just tell me how much it is!

You have to miss work. You show up 15 minutes early only to sit in the waiting room until 30 minutes after your appointment time.

You’re lucky if they even know your name. They just get you in and get you out as fast as possible. It’s frustrating!

Dr. Blakeslee and his staff are so caring. He never tries to sell you on dental repairs that aren’t needed, and he is so gentle. He has top of the line equipment and his fee schedule is very reasonable. I drive 2 hours to go to his clinic, because they are the BEST..

Nice job preparing my tooth for a crown today Dr. Blakeslee! The entire experience was about as pleasant as it can get for a visit to the dentist 😉

I've had many bad experiences with the dentist as a child... But, the team here made me so comfortable and took my threats to harm them seriously if I felt any pain I couldn't handle! The conversations they have while I'm in that chair having my teeth reconstructed make me not think about what they are actually doing in there....I am not so afraid to go to the dentist anymore!

Expert Dentistry Provided With Compassion

We know that going to the dentist isn’t usually something people look forward to. But we believe it doesn’t have to be that way.
Most dental offices provide an unwelcoming experience, treating you with polite, but unfriendly, clinical coolness. That can be pretty frustrating, and a little demeaning. After all, it’s your mouth they’re working on. Before they start rooting around in there, shouldn’t they at least hear what that mouth has to say?

We know that you want a dentist who sees and hears you, actually listens to you, so they can understand your goals. Every patient is different and every patient deserves to be treated in a unique way.

At University Ave Dental, you’re not a number. You’re valued as people. Our patients describe us as “compassionate, caring, and gentle.”

That doesn’t mean we don’t take our responsibilities and our dedication to the science of dentistry seriously. Our continuing education sessions help us provide you with the best, and most modern techniques available. Here’s how Shari W. describes University Ave. Family Dental, “They are so caring. They never try to sell you on dental repairs that aren’t needed, and they’re so gentle. They have top-of-the-line equipment and the fee schedule is very reasonable. I drive 2 hours to Blaine to go to this clinic because they are the best.” If you’re looking for a dentist that’s worth driving two hours to see, getting started is simple.
