Remarkably happy to see you.

Maybe you didn’t know you needed a dental care family. Maybe that’s because you’ve never had one before. You have one now with Edlund Dental.

Our office is filled with smiles all the time. We love working together, and each of us adds unique value to the team. We want you to feel comfortable and easy with all of us. We truly look forward to seeing our patients and catching up with them. With you!

Steve Edlund

Steven M. Edlund, DDS

As a kid growing up in Morris, MN, Dr. Edlund wanted to be a dentist. His family dentist was a kind, caring person who invited Steve to follow him for a day. By noon, Steve knew he had found his life’s work.

At Concordia College in Moorhead, and later at the University of Minnesota School of Dentistry, Dr. Edlund was treated to “amazing educators.” These dedicated instructors reinforced Steve’s natural love for problem solving, which allowed him to love the tough classes. Organic chemistry and Calculus were some of his favorite courses, in large part because of the wonderful teachers.

Dr. Edlund dreamed of having a practice that would allow him to know his patients well, and to work with entire families. In 2008, he purchased the practice of the retiring Dr. Kath, who had established it over the prior 40 years.  Dr. Kath is still a patient at Edlund Dental, and a favorite guest of the staff.

When he’s not in the office, Dr. Edlund lives in St. Paul’s lively Mac-Groveland area with his wife, Elisa. They enjoy their home and neighborhood. He bikes to work whenever possible, and appreciates the beautiful trails near the river.

But some of his best weekends, he says, are spent on the family farm in Morris, where he still participates in planting, harvesting and working the land. Home matters to Dr. Edlund. That’s why he wants his office to be a comfortable, pleasant “home” for his patients’ care.

Dr. Edlund is a member and sits on the Executive Council of the St. Paul Dental Society. He is also a member of the Minnesota Dental Association (MDA) and the American Dental Association (ADA).
