“This is My Passion”
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:

When Kim Bruss looks back at her 39 years as a dental hygienist at Personal Care Dentistry, she marvels at the changes that she has witnessed during those nearly four decades. She has watched the practice grow from a couple of employees and 500 square feet to the nearly 30 employees and 8,000 square feet that now distinguish the practice. She has seen Dr. Kyle Hunt go from a toddler who would visit the practice with his dad, Dr. Walter Hunt, to being a key member of the care team as a dentist. Find out more about Kim in this feature story.
If you read any of Personal Care Dentistry’s patient testimonials and reviews it won’t take long before you come across some glowing praise for a hygienist named Missy. Since 2004 Melissa Hall has been providing the highest level of professional treatment with her characteristically compassionate chairside manner. Her winning ways are in part from her training at the University of Minnesota and by following Dr. Walter Hunt’s Golden Rule of treating Personal Care Dentistry patients as they themselves would want to be treated.
