How to Find Top Cosmetic Dentists in MN (5 Questions to Ask)
What’s the one thing you wear 24/7?
Now, if you’re unhappy with your smile, this might be unsettling, thinking you are “stuck” with your teeth forever.
Don’t worry! With cosmetic dentistry in MN, you CAN change your teeth and achieve the smile of your dreams.
Cosmetic dentistry offers services that can minimally or dramatically transform your smile, such as repairing a chipped tooth or changing the entire appearance of your smile.
Not only that, having a smile you love is proven to improve your quality of life.
At The Gorman Center for Fine Dentistry, we believe your smile deserves the best. Why settle for anything less?
However, searching for the “best dentist near me” can be overwhelming. Your journey to your dream smile shouldn’t be anything but exciting and fun.
To help you narrow down your search for the top cosmetic dentists in MN, we have a list of five crucial questions you must ask yourself when reviewing dentists.
1. Is this dentist AACD accredited?
The American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry (AACD) is the world’s largest organization for cosmetic dental professionals, dedicated to continuing education and responsible patient care.
To become an AACD accredited dentist, a dentist must pass a written exam, submission of clinical cases, and an oral exam.
Dentists who are AACD accredited have proven their skills and knowledge in cosmetic and restorative dentistry.
Our dentist in MN, Dr. Steve Gorman is one of only nine AACD accredited dentists in Minnesota. Additionally, he is an extremely active member, regularly attending the annual international meetings where the “best of the best” gather to share the latest in cosmetic dentistry.
2. What are this dentist’s credentials?
Once you have eliminated the dentists who are not AACD accredited, it’s important to compare credentials – how many years of experience does this dentist have?
With the advancements in dental techniques and technology, dentistry can be: faster, less painful, more effective, and cheaper.
If a dentist is not continuing his/her education to learn new techniques or invest in the latest technology, then they will not be able to offer you the best dental care available today.
Another way to recognize a dentist’s expertise is if he/she gives back to the dental community.
For example, our dentist lectures dental professionals on cosmetic and restorative dentistry and was a founding member and past president of the Minnesota Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry.
To easily find this information, review the dentist’s About Me page on their website. If it isn’t listed there, ask to review his/her resume.
3. Do you like this dentist’s real patients’ results?
You know what they say, “A picture is worth a thousand words.”
We strongly recommend you review a dentist’s smile gallery of real patients’ before and after results.
The top dentist in MN will have smile results you LOVE and want for yourself.
Cosmetic dentistry is an art form. It requires extreme skill to craft teeth and smiles to enhance your natural features and seamlessly blend in, so no one will notice you’ve had dental work done.

4. What cosmetic dentistry services does this dentist offer?
There’s no one-size-fits-all treatment.
How you choose to enhance your smile can vary based on your smile goals, budget, timeline, and more.
That’s why a top cosmetic dentist will be trained and educated to offer a variety of services.
Plus, having all your treatment done under one roof will save you time and money.

5. Has the dentist won any awards?
Any dentist can claim they are the best, but if their peers or patients don’t say the same, it begs a different story.
An unbiased way to find the top cosmetic dentist in MN is to look at the dentist’s awards.
If he/she has won awards, ask yourself:
What is the award about? Who voted? How recent was this award? Has this dentist received the award multiple times?
We are proud to say that our North Oaks dentist has won numerous awards, including:
- Top Dentist in Mpls St Paul magazine, for the past eight years
- Best Dentist 2018 in Minnesota Monthly
- Top Dentist Hall of Fame in Mpls St Paul Magazine
You can also look at a dentist’s reviews and read what his/her patients are saying about their experience and results.
