Dental Services in Shakopee, MN
After seeing the same dentist for 10 years, I finally switched and Dr. Forest immediately caught two cavities that needed to be addressed. I got them taken care of today and would definitely recommend! The procedure went great. I also learned that they do Invisalign and whitening at a great price.

- Does Mint Dental Handle Dental Emergencies At The Shakopee Location?
Yes. At our Shakopee location, Dr. Forest and Dr. Schulhof can handle dental emergencies. A dental emergency is any oral health problem that’s causing you serious oral discomfort, bleeding, or pain, and that you are unable to treat on your own.
Whether you have a serious and painful toothache, a cracked or broken tooth, or a loose or missing piece of dental work like a filling or crown, we can see you right away. We offer same-day emergency dentistry for new and returning patients during normal business hours at the Mint Dental Shakopee location.
For more information or to schedule a same-day appointment right away, just give us a call at (952) 445-3349. You can discuss your issue in detail with our dental team, and make sure you get the same-day care you need in Shakopee.
- What Should I Expect On My First Visit?
You’ll need to fill out some basic paperwork before your appointment begins at our Shakopee location, with information about past health issues, medications you’re taking, and other basic details. We recommend coming in about 15-20 minutes early to your first appointment, if possible, so that you can complete the required forms and paperwork.
Next, you’ll be taken back to an operatory, and your appointment will begin, consisting of a teeth cleaning, an oral exam, and x-rays, if needed.
Teeth cleaning – One of our hygienists will clean tartar and plaque away with special dental tools. Then, your teeth will be buffed and polished, and flossed to remove any further debris before your oral exam.
Oral exam – Dr. Forest or Dr. Schulhof will examine your mouth and look for signs of gum disease, tooth decay, oral cancer, and other common oral health issues. They may also ask you to discuss any past oral health challenges you’ve had, and about dental work like fillings and crowns.
X-rays – X-rays are usually required during your first visit, since they allow Dr. Forest and Dr. Schulhof to look for oral health problems that may not be visible with a visual exam alone.
After your consultation, Dr. Schulhof or Dr. Forest will discuss your oral health with you, and inform you of any potential issues they’ve found. Depending on their findings, you may need to schedule additional follow-up treatments, or just your next six-month visit to Mint Dental.
