More Than Just Your Typical Dental Office
The typical dental office provides patients with safe, effective dental care to help them meet their oral hygiene goals, but at Cornerstone Dental, we do that and go a step further. Most of our patients are pleasantly surprised at how different their experience is in our Fargo dental office. Combining a high level of skill, dedication to timely appointments, efficiency, and a true dedication to patient success, a visit to Cornerstone Dental is like visiting no other dentistry practice in the area. We enjoy working together to help our patients achieve their goals, and it shows. If you want to learn more, call

As a dental practice, we are committed to preventive care. We want to help our patients maintain and enhance their smile’s natural health and beauty through the use of innovative treatment options, state-of-the-art technologies, and conservative dentistry services that preserve the greatest amount of healthy tooth structure. Our high standards and dedication to personalized treatment planning starts the moment you walk through the front door. Every member of our team will make you and your family feel welcome and right at home. During treatment planning, we don’t “sell” you anything or prescribe a “one-size-fits-all” method for your oral health care. Instead, we partner with patients to help them understand all of their treatment options and choose the right services to address their unique oral health care needs.
In order to maintain our high standards, especially treating patients at the appointment time, we rely on our patients to arrive at their scheduled appointment times. That includes calling in advance to cancel or reschedule an appointment and arriving on time for your scheduled visit. We reserve the right to discontinue treatment for those patients who fail to keep their appointments or repeatedly cancel with less than 24 hours’ notice. We respect our patients’ time and holding patients to this standard ensures we can continue to see every patient in a timely manner.
Education & Prevention
Our treatment philosophy is focused on education and prevention, not treatment for disease or in response to emergencies. We want to help patients keep their smiles healthy vs simply treating issues as they arise. That said, we do make every effort to accommodate treatment for those patients who do experience dental emergencies. In many cases, we can provide urgent care appointments on the same day you call.
While we are dedicated to offering personalized treatment plans, scheduled preventive maintenance appointments at least twice a year will be recommended for every patient we treat at every age. During your biannual dental exam, we will carefully examine your smile visually and by using state-of-the-art x-ray technology. Our team is screening for the early indicators of common oral health concerns that can be overlooked by the untrained eye. Some of those health issues we’ll be looking for include tooth decay, gum disease, teeth grinding and clenching, and even oral cancer. We can then help to guide your at-home care to halt decay or other damage, or in the case of oral cancer and other more serious health concerns, we’ll partner with you to receive the advanced treatments you need in our office or with a skilled medical doctor.
We go the extra mile to meet or exceed infection control and safety standards. We maintain strict sterilization, cross-contamination, storage, sanitation, and other criteria as outlined by the American Dental Association, the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA), and the Centers for Disease Control (CDC).
Training & Expertise
Every member of our team is a committed dental health professional. You can rest assured knowing you always receive high-quality treatments that will keep you smiling. We are all committed to continuing education that ensures we are at the forefront of dental treatment options, and you always receive the most up to date services. Our team members also maintain memberships in professional dentistry associations, which gives us access to a network of our peers who help us to stay engaged and actively learning and growing year after year.
A Positive Experience
Many patients with dental phobias and anxiety tell us they had a bad dental office experience in their past. These patients may then avoid visiting the dentists for their necessary care, leading to more serious oral health issues. That’s why creating positive experiences for dental patients of all ages is so important to us. We never want you to miss out on the dental care you need. We achieve this goal by treating each of our patients with kindness, honesty, and respect at all times. Our team members also take the time to listen to you and address any fears or concerns you express. We truly can’t wait to show you how different dental care can be.
