Why Choose Us

Corporate dentists, like other big businesses, are often more about the hard sell than service.

At Lakeside Dentistry, our Rochester, MN dentists never pressure you to make decisions about your family’s dental care. We’ll never try to talk you into a service you aren’t sure you want. We give you the information you need and respect your ability to make the right choices for your family.

Dr. Jim Gores, Dr. Lucy Gores, and Dr. Peggy Scott, all of whom grew up in Rochester, enjoy serving families. Lakeside Dentistry wants to take care of your family’s teeth for a lifetime, from your child’s first dentist visit to restorative dentistry for senior teeth.

If you want to experience no-pressure family dental care, call Lakeside Dentistry at 507-316-6444.

Our Top Dental Technology

Lakeside Dentistry uses the latest dental technology, even for services as basic as dental exams. Our dentists use a high-tech tool called CariVu that enables them to see inside your family’s teeth and find cavities in their earliest stages. And our digital radiography works better than traditional X-rays because we can enlarge or sharpen digital images to get a clearer view.

We Do Our Best to Relax You

If any family members are uneasy at the dentist, our compassionate team can relieve their dental anxiety. From the friendly faces at our front desk, to the nearby lake, to our comfortable furniture, Lakeside Dentistry’s atmosphere feels relaxed. We use laughing gas to take the edge off, if needed. And we offer longer appointment times if that helps settle their nerves.

Speaking of appointment times, we offer extended hours to make it easy to get your family to our Rochester, MN dentist office without missing school or work. We open at 7:30 a.m. five days a week. And we stay until 7 p.m. on Mondays and Tuesdays.

For family-centered dental care, call Lakeside Dentistry at 507-316-6444. Or use our online form.
