Dr. Don Blakeslee, his beautiful wife and two talented daughters, have called Fridley their home since 1981. When not in the office, you can find him tending to his burgeoning garden, trekking the world with his DSLR camera, molding pottery clay, sharpening his sailing abilities, camping in Minnesota wilderness and maintaining his fitness with yoga.
Home-grown talent. Ever since graduating from the University of Minnesota, Dr. Blakeslee has committed to providing the best care for his patients. From his kind smile, gentle demeanor and focus on understanding your needs, you know he has your best interest at heart.
Dedicated to service. Not only can you find him in the Blaine office, you’ll find him volunteering throughout the Twin Cities. Every month, Dr. Blakeslee donates his dental skills to Sharing and Caring Hands in Minneapolis. Another way he has given back is through the Give Kids a Smile program since 2003. A free program held every year to help families and children unable to afford basic dental care.
With a heart of gold, Dr. Blakeslee treats every single person who walks through his doors as family. His quick witted humor makes seemingly difficult dental appointments, easy as pie. Stop by the University Ave Dental office to get to know Dr. Blakeslee even more.
When you’re at University Ave Dental, you’ll feel like part of a family. We greet everyone who walks through our doors with a warm welcome. We believe in being your best dental advocate providing you with answers about your dental health or your treatment options. We can’t wait to meet you and see you smile!
I have been a dental hygienist since 1989, graduated from University of Minnesota Duluth. I have enjoyed working with the staff at Blakeslee Dental since 1998. While making each patients experience unique to their needs, I find it rewarding to help them achieve a higher level of health.
I balance my work schedule by spending time with my husband, our two daughters, and our dog.
I graduated from the University of North Dakota (go Sioux) in 1992 with a degree in political science, spanish and psychology. My intention at that time was to go onto dental school. After deciding instead to pursue a career in dental hygiene, I enrolled at Normandale Community College. I have been a registered dental hygienist since 1996 and have been with Blakeslee Dental for the past 9 years. I wish I would have found them earlier!!
I love working with Dr. Blakeslee and all the girls; they truly are fun to be around. The best thing is that we ALL enjoy our jobs and want to improve the health of our patients.
I have 3 children who keep me busy with hockey, fast pitch, lacrosse and yes, more hockey. I also have a 4th child – Charli – our golden retriever who loves 24 hour attention
