At Wood Park Dental, we have been providing exceptional dentistry to our patients for 35 years. We’re proud of our commitment to provide each patient with the personalized care and attention they deserve. Patient comfort is our priority, and we strive to make every interaction with us pleasant and stress-free.
When choosing a dentist, it’s a good idea to trust your oral care to experienced, caring dentists like Dr. Jon Skare and Dr. Marcia Kangas. They will treat you as the unique individual you are and listen to your concerns because if it matters to you, it matters to us.
If you have missing, damaged, stained or broken teeth, our Eagan, MN dentists will recommend the dental treatments that make sense for you. In addition to general dentistry, Dr. Skare is trained to design and fabricate lifelike CEREC dental restorations here in our office while you wait. He has also studied dental implantology and can complete the entire process, from placement to restoration, here in our comfortable, modern dental office.
Generations of patients have trusted their oral health care to the warm and friendly professionals at Wood Park Dental. We would love to show you how an attentive team, gentle treatment, and modern technology can change your attitude about dentistry.
We look forward to welcoming you!
Dr Jon Skare
"“At Wood Park Dental, we are perfectionists and just want the very best outcome for our patients. The best part though, are the relationships that have formed over the past 35 years of practice. I love seeing and chatting with patients who are like old friends, and many of their children and grandchildren are now patients as well.”
Dr. Jon Skare attended Hamline University for his undergraduate degree in biology. He then took his love of science and helping people to the Univesity of Minnesota, where he earned his Doctor of Dental Surgery (DDS) degree.
He has been proudly serving patients in the Eagan, MN community since 1985. Dr. Skare’s decades of experience, specialized training, and state-of-the-art equipment allows him to offer you and your family the high level of care you deserve.
Dr. Skare continues to learn everything he can about advances in modern dentistry. Since 2007, he has devoted himself to advanced training and education in CEREC technology and same-visit dental restorations. Dr. Skare also studied dental implantology extensively under Dr. Arun Garg, a leader in the field, and continues to update his knowledge of implant dentistry.
Wood Park Dental is a family-owned and operated practice. Dr. Skare’s wife Cindy is our office manager, and his daughter Leah works at the front desk. His Puggle Ziggy runs his life outside of the practice as he is so high maintenance, but also very loyal.
In his personal life, Dr. Skare is up at his cabin every chance he gets. There is so much to do and so little time to do it, and it’s a labor of love that will never be complete. He also looks forward to his annual canoe trip into Quetico Provincial Park every August and has only missed one year since 1978.
