On time, friendly, professional and efficient. What else should it be?

Carol is always pleasant on the phone and in person – The dental assistants are more than dental technicians – They have become friends and peers – I also like the Dentist – He is patient and thorough! I used to prefer having a child and being in labor to going to the dentist – No longer!

I called for an appointment one day and got in the next. I felt very comfortable with the staff and dentist. I felt involved in my treatment options which I liked.

I have been going to this clinic for quite some time and have nothing but complete and total respect for the quality of services of Dr. Rathjen and his staff. He’s a perfectionist and does great work, and all the staff are friendly.

Susan W. | St. Louis Park, MN

The staff at Northpointe is fabulous! Shelly is the best hygienist I’ve had. Carol is so helpful and friendly. Dr. Rathje gives me tips for my teeth and where to kayak. I feel like they really care about me and my health, and appreciate that they now take your blood pressure, too. They’re always looking for ways to make my experience better.

Kathy G. | Indianapolis, IN

Always a pleasant experience and everyone is very good at what they do. Especially Carol. Her knowledge about insurance is greatly appreciated.

I’ve been a patient of Dr. Rathjen and Northpointe Dental for ten years. You can feel free to share your “fears of dentistry” with any of them. They have been very accommodating, understanding and sensitive to all my worries and quirks. They make each visit as comfortable as possible. I’ve been very happy with Dr. Rathjen’s work and how the staff puts you at ease as soon as you walk in the door.

Carol C. | Spring Lake Park, MN

Dr Rathjen has been our family’s dentist for over 30 years. He has driven our daughter to the hospital when she knocked out her four front teeth. He did an emergency repair of a tooth I broke off after office hours. He is a perfectionist and expects only the best from his office staff. Dr Rathjen always puts his patients first by continuing to educate himself and staff with newest procedures. He simply is the best !!

Doug W. | Rogers, MN

Teeth should be cared for like a classic car especially at my age. Having a perfectionist with Dr Rathjen’s skills is what everyone should want in a dentist. His work is virtually painless. The most difficult times are on your back in a comfortable chair trying to stay awake when he is drilling. Of course they are too nice to say anything about my snoring!

Steve H. | Oakdale, MN

My visit was extensive and involved some unexpected work but Dr Rathjen was once again flexible and provided superior care and follow-up. There was minimal discomfort and I am again amazed by the quality of the experience. I highly recommend Dr Rathjen and his staff!

Ed C. | Hastings, MN

Excellent as usual. Doc is the best friendly and professional dentist. The oral surgen I see said “Craig was the best dentist he’s even worked with.

Susan M. | Brooklyn Park, MN

I highly recommend Dr. Rathjen and his entire staff for the best in dental care. I have had a number of services completed since I became a patient. Dr. Rathjen is thorough and considerate when offering his professional advice. I appreciate the care, attention to detail, and skill of the whole team!

Dana S. | Coon Rapids, MN

I’ve been coming here for over 20 yrs. The people are always friendly; the appointments smoothe, painless and efficient. Their work has always been excellent.

Rebecca J. | Coon Rapids, MN

Dr Rathjen really does wonderful work and really wants people to be happy with the results as well. The staff is very caring and willing to help and answer all questions. I have recommended him to everyone that mentions needing dental care.

As always, your services are friendly and professional. I know I am getting the best! It was good to see everyone!

Dr. Rathjen and his staff are an excellent dentistry team. Always prompt, courteous, and accommodating while maintaining technical excellence.

Cheryl S. | Fridley, MN

I have been a patient of Dr. Rathjen’s for over 30 years. He and his staff are always doing the utmost to ensure comfort and they are amazing at doing reconstructive and cosmetic work. Dr. Rathjen is a true perfectionist. I have referred many patients to him.

Michelle H.

I’ve been coming to Dr Rathjen and his Northpointe team for about 20 years. Before that, I didn’t see a dentist for 15 years! I had such bad memories of pain and anxiety that frankly, I was afraid to go to a dentist ever again. In fact, I think I cancelled on Dr Rathjen twice and he ended up calling my home to talk with me. He knew! He got me to come in and I’ve never been sorry since. My three sons and husband have enjoyed their thorough, friendly, comfortable care too. I’m so grateful to the friend that referred Northpointe Dental Care to us. No more dental phobia! I actually look forward to my visits now…who knew!

Heather D.

My family and I have been coming here for several years, and we have had great visits, every time. My kids aren’t scared to come to the dentist either, which is saying a lot!

Carol B.

Very professional staff treats you with a welcoming and personable manner. Makes you feel right at home. An enjoyable experience from start to finish.

Larry R.

My wife and I have been with Northpointe for nearly twenty years, that tells you that we find Dr. Rathjen and his crew to be exceptional.

Dennis C. | Spring Lake Park, MN

Very professional and competent care. My comfort during the procedure was forefront in the staffs eyes. A visit to the dentist is always stressful but I was cared for with utmost concern.

Carol is always pleasant on the phone and in person – The dental assistants are more than dental technicians – They have become friends and peers – I also like the Dentist – He is patient and thorough! (I used to prefer having a child and being in labor to going to the dentist – No longer!


Very professional but relaxed at the same time. Enjoy not having to wait because of over-booking appts. All employees are enjoyable and know what they’re doing.


I found Dr Rathjen through a friend- I’m very pleased. He showed me everything and gave me options and prioritized treatment. He didn’t pressure me to do everything at once, since it was a lot of work. They helped me use my insurance the best way, and found out how much my work would cost me. He does really good work and they are all very nice. I have told my friends to come to Dr. Rathjen too.


I hate going to the dentist. The staff at NP treat you like like family. I feel very comfortable when I’m there. They set up a treatment plan and let me work on what we can afford.


Every time I have an appointment, Dr. Rathjen amazes me with his care and knowledge. Very personable office. Carol manning the ship is the best! 🙂

Mary P. | from Coon Rapids

Dr. Rathjen, you went above and beyond to get all that was needed to get the work done right. I appreciate that you took the time to talk to me to explain the procedure. You and your staff made me feel like family. You also said that you had the best people in the lab. I want to Thank the Lab as I know they also went above and beyond. Great job! My teeth look natural, my speech is better and I feel younger.
