Dr. Shelley Wakefield grew up in Burnsville, and after completing dental school she opened the Dakota Dental clinic in Apple Valley. Dr. Wakefield is one of fewer than 100 dentists in the state to have completed a Post-Doctorate Degree in Cosmetic Dentistry from the University of Minnesota. This means that at Dakota Dental, patients can receive treatments from a tooth filling to teeth whitening to cosmetic veneers — all in the same dental clinic.
Dr. Bennett Isabella attended dental school at Marquette University. After completing his degree, he moved back to his hometown of Apple Valley and began seeing patients at Dakota Dental. Dr. Isabella is passionate about continuing his education and stays up to date on the latest dental surgery techniques, sedation dentistry, and implant dentistry. Dr. Isabella was also recently named one of 2018’s ‘40 Under 40’ by Incisal Edge Magazine.
Dr. Ellen Jacobson grew up in White Bear Lake. She went to Iowa State University and returned to Minnesota for her Doctorate of Dental Surgery degree. Dr. Jacobson enjoys creating healthy smiles and educating patients about the benefits of preventative dental care. Dr. Jacobson is passionate about giving back to the community, and has participated in multiple volunteer opportunities both locally and internationally.
In addition to their many dental services and a friendly staff, the Apple Valley dental clinic provides a calm and comfortable atmosphere and a play space for children to ensure that patients of all ages feel at ease.
