Meet Dr. Jayce

Dr. Jayce Apelgren grew up in Southeastern Wisconsin. He then attended Lawrence University. Following this experience, he earned his Doctor of Dental Surgery at the University of Minnesota School of Dentistry. Here he fell in love with the Minneapolis area and the love of his life, Dr. Katee Apelgren.

Dr. Jayce has many interests outside of dentistry. Whenever possible, he spends time with his family and friends. One of his biggest hobbies is the outdoors. Dr. Jayce enjoys camping, traveling, fishing, hunting, running, golfing, and much more. He is passionate about volunteer work and believes everyone should have something to smile about.

Dr. Jayce was able to see firsthand the type of impact a caring dentist can have on a patient. At the age of 12, he chipped his front teeth in a swimming pool. He was grateful for the kindness and gentle nature that his dentist had at that time. Dr. Jayce has used his experience as a foundation for the care that he delivers to his patients.

I had my first visit today at Apelgren Dental! It was the best dental visit I've had. My hygienist was wonderful, very gentle but effective. Dr. Jayce was very welcoming and took the time to explain a procedure I need. I did not feel like just another patient and did not feel like anyone was rushing to get me out the door! Thank You Apelgren Dental for a great experience.
