In 1977, Dr. Walter Hunt founded Personal Care Dentistry in a small office space with three employees on Hamline Avenue in Roseville. He had just graduated from the University of Minnesota’s School of Dentistry and he was determined to build a different kind of dental practice, one that focused on what he calls the “Golden Rule of Dentistry” – caring for all of his patients the way he would care for his own family.
Now, 40 years later, Personal Care Dentistry has grown to take up the entire third floor of the office building on Hamline Avenue where he started his practice. Four dentists and more than 30 staff blend the latest technology with a gentle touch in a warm, caring and compassionate atmosphere.
“We take the time to really listen to our patients and provide close, personal attention to best customize their care,” emphasizes Dr. Hunt. “I know the kind of care that I demand as a patient, and that is the kind of care that I strive to provide. I call it the ‘Golden Rule Dentistry.’ It is a philosophy shared by all of our staff members.”
“Our patients truly feel we are an extension of their family and that they can always depend on us to provide excellent care based on compassion, respect and personalized service,” emphasizes Dr. Hunt. “We believe in a conservative approach to care, which means that we don’t recommend care that is not necessary at the time they come in for an appointment. Our motto is ‘We Serve the World’s Greatest Patients’ and we take that approach with each of our patients.”
Dr. Kyle Hunt is a 2014 graduate of the dental school at the University of Illinois (Chicago) and earned an undergraduate degree in chemistry at Gustavus Adolphus College. He is the son of Personal Care Dentistry’s founder, Dr. Walter Hunt, and has been helping out in the practice since he was 10 years old.
What motivates Dr. Kyle as a dentist? “To help people,” he says. “To use the skills I have and will continue to develop to help people be more confident in their smile and their oral health, and to make sure every patient I see is treated with compassion and excellence.”
When Dr. Andrew Heinisch decided to move his dental career to the Twin Cities in the Fall of 2018 from Worthington, Minnesota, he had a wide range of options in where he would practice and how he would practice. “I looked at both private practices and chain practices, in both downtown locations and suburban offices. But I kept finding that their goal was not to develop patient relationships based on trust and quality of care.”
Dr. Henisch grew up in St. Paul and went to Harding High School. He worked office jobs in two Twin Cities hospitals after he graduated from high school, including three years when he managed to juggle both full-time jobs. Eventually he decided to enroll at the University of Minnesota as an undergraduate and majored in biochemistry. He worked the entire time he was at the U of M, and also volunteered at the Union Gospel Mission and taught GED classes in math and science. Dr. Heinisch graduated in 2010 from the University of Minnesota, and then was accepted in the dental program at the University of Iowa.
Each and every day it is our mission to not only bring back our patient’s smiles but to also fully restore their dental function. In doing so, Personal Care Dentistry patients experience life-changing results.
I love this dental office and the people working there. They are so friendly and work with me as their customer to meet my needs and my schedule. I really love the dental hygienist and my dentist, just really friendly people who smile a lot.
My husband and I have been going to Personal Care Dentistry for over 30 years. Specifically, we've been attended to by Dr. Walter Hunt. We couldn't ask for any better service. We strongly recommend this practice. The office itself is quite lovely, the personnel is professional, efficient and always very friendly. Thank you Dr. Hunt!!
We switched to Personal Care Dentistry a few years ago and I wished I had done it sooner! The gentle and compassionate care is so appreciated! Everyone from the front desk to the doctors are great! We especially like Jordan, she is fantastic!!!
Personal Care Dentistry makes it easy to go to the dentist. Dr. Hunt's staff is efficient, kind and caring. My hygienist makes me feel very comfortable as she cleans my teeth, the time goes fast! Be sure to check out Dr. Hunt's photography on the walls while your there, so fun to look at!
