Who We Are


Founded by Drs. Vacharee and Andrew Peterson, Community Dental Care was one of the first private clinics in the Twin Cities that focused primarily on serving low-income and patients from all walks of life.

To ensure continued access to high-quality dental care for the large number of our patients enrolled in public programs, the clinic was incorporated into a 501(c)(3) nonprofit in August 2004 and began serving patients as a nonprofit in January 2005. In May 2008, CDentC opened its second clinic location in Maplewood. In December 2012, a third location opened in Rochester. On January 13, 2014, Community Dental Care launched its fourth location, in Robbinsdale. Our fifth clinic is currently planned to be open in Rochester on August 14th, 2017.

Today, with 58 chairs and a staff of 260, we provide dental services to more than 31,500 patients every year.
