We always welcome new patients at Bassett Creek Dental! Please call (763) 546–1301 to make an appointment at your convenience.

First Visit

If you have a specific problem, our doctors will always take care of that first. Then we will schedule you an appointment with one of our Minneapolis dentists for a complete dental checkup, including x-rays and an oral exam. Coming prepared for your first visit is as easy as filling out the Patient Registration Form and Medical History Form.

Patient Comfort

Your comfort is our top priority. During your treatment, you can choose to listen to our stereo headphones. You can also request nitrous oxide gas to help you relax.

Financial Arrangements

Our staff is sensitive to your financial needs. As partners, we will work with you to plan our dental treatment to fit you budget. For your convenience, we offer several options for the payment of your dental services. Our staff will help you design an extended payment plan that fits into your budget. For more information, please call our office.

Dental Insurance

Bassett Creek Dental will make every effort to assist you in obtaining maximum benefits from your insurer. Our insurance coordinator can help you file claim forms. If you are offered a choice of dental plans, we can also help you make an informed decision about which plan will be best for you. There is no charge for this service. For complete insurance information, please contact your insurance company or our business office during standard office hours.

Patient Protection

We believe it is important that you feel comfortable with your choice of health care provider and that you are fully informed on what precautions are being taken to insure your good health.

At Bassett Creek Dental, you will notice that each doctor and team member wears a face mask, gloves, and eye protection. In accordance with the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), face masks are worn as barriers to aerosol spray, while gloves are worn as a barrier to the prevention of transferring bacteria or viruses through cuts or abrasions.

This, however, is only part of the picture. What you don't see of our infection control procedure is just as important, if not more so, than what you do see. We want you to know that all operator surfaces are disinfected between each patient and all of our instruments are either disposable and thrown away after use, or are sterilized.

For your protection and health, Bassett Creek Dental is using an A-dec® self-contained water system in our dental treatment rooms. The system is a dental waterline unit that continuously provides disinfected water for our patients. This system is designed to deliver optimally controlled, quality water for use in our patients dental treatment.

We also maintain a separate sterilization room fully equipped with two types of state-of-the-art sterilizers. These "autoclaves" are used to sterilize our instruments. We insure that sterilizers are working properly by carefully testing their performance on a regular and frequent schedule.

Since 1990, we have had a full-time Infection Control Coordinator on our team, ensuring that we follow the recommendations of the American Dental Association and the American Academy of Dental Group Practice.

Should you have any questions regarding our infection control protocol, please don't hesitate to contact our Patient Coordinator.
