Advanced Technology

At Personal Care Dentistry you’ll find a visit to your dentist isn’t what it used to be. Technology advancements have made it possible to detect problems earlier; provide better, more comfortable treatment; and reduce pain and anxiety you may have associated with dental care in the past.

Conservative Care

We believe in a conservative approach to care, which means that we don’t recommend care that is not necessary at the time you come in for an appointment. We only recommend care that is necessary for our patient’s oral health. And we always consult with our patients (we never pressure) about their care options and work as a team to deliver the best outcome for their needs. Our motto is ‘We Serve the World’s Greatest Patients’ and we take that approach with each of our patients.

Preventative Dentistry

At Personal Care Dentistry, we believe preventative dentistry is important to our patient’s oral health. Our goal with preventative dentistry is to reduce your risk of dental disorders such as tooth decay or gingivitis. These preventative techniques can stop dental problems before they happen, and keep you from experiencing pain and help you to save money.

Please visit our new patient section if this is your first time here. Also, you can simply contact us if you have any additional needs.

Meet Dr. Walter Hunt

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.

And the entire care team at Personal Care Dentistry still follows the Golden Rule of Dentistry each and every day. “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.”

This never-ending quest for excellence in dental care by Dr. Hunt has been embraced by all of the dentists, dental assistants, hygienists and office staff at Personal Care Dentistry. It has resulted in a chest full of awards from fellow dentists and consumers, including:

    ◊ ‘Top Dentist’ by Minneapolis St. Paul Magazine for 4 years
    ◊ ‘Top Dentist’ by Roseville Review readers for 9 years
    ◊ ‘Top Dentist’ by Minnesota Monthly for the last 3 years
    ◊  Angie’s List Super Service award for 5 years

“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. Hunt’s approach to patient care and his “Golden Rule of Dentistry” have roots that go back much further than his 40-year dental career. Dr. Hunt grew up in northwestern Indiana in a small town named Merrillville. By the time his family moved to Minnesota at the beginning of his junior year of high school, he had become an accomplished athlete in both football and baseball. It was then that he also reached a defining moment in his life, one that has influenced his approach to life and dentistry.

“My family didn’t have much money – we lived in a poor neighborhood in Merrillville – so I had a lot of friends who were also poor. But because I was a good athlete in football and baseball, I also had a group of friends who came from families with money. And I didn’t like the way the kids with money would treat the poor kids. It was then that I vowed that I would always treat everyone equally with the same amount of caring and respect,” emphasizes Dr. Hunt. “The worth of a person should not be defined by what they have or how they look.”

For Dr. Hunt, being a dentist and the founder of Personal Care Dentistry is not a job. It is a passion. He has had the same goal for almost half a century – treat people with dignity and respect, and as a dentist, provide them with the best care possible.

“This is my passion, and this is how I can contribute to helping other people have better lives. Even today, I still feel like I get more out of caring for others than they do. I love being here at Personal Care Dentistry,” says Dr. Hunt.

Dr. Hunt has many hobbies and interests, but his real passion is nature photography. Nearly every picture hanging throughout the practice is one he took on his many travels across the globe! He also loves sports, (especially baseball – he played as a pitcher and second baseman in a men’s over 35 league until a hip injury forced him to retire when he was 59), plays the guitar like you wouldn’t believe, enjoys traveling and spending time at the cabin with his wife, Michelle and his four grown “boys” and their families.
