Dr. Sara Dueñes
Dr. Dueñes grew up in Rochester, MN and yes, she’s short, but still competed in and loves a variety of sports and dance. She obtained her Bachelor of Arts degree from Macalester College in St. Paul with a double major in Chemistry and Biology and a minor in Psychology.
She worked at the Mayo Clinic doing laboratory research. She went on to earn her Doctor of Dental Surgery degree from the University of MN. She has received awards, attended national conferences, and published a scientific dental journal article. She loves the combination of science and the art of dentistry, but especially transforming people with cosmetic work and dentures and relieving pain with extractions and root canal treatments as well as treating children – all of her patients appreciate her small hands.
She is familiar with Spanish and enjoys many things like cooking, fishing, swimming, paddleboarding, sailing, telescoping, photography, playing all kinds of games, solving puzzles, and trying guitar as of lately. She prides herself in always striving to do everything to the best of her ability, so come on in and have that bad tooth removed, repaired, or replaced by someone “fun-sized”!
