Kyle R. Edlund, DDS, the Team Dentist for the Minnesota Wild Hockey Team

After graduating with honors from the University of Minnesota Dental School in 1987, Dr. Kyle Edlund went on to complete a year-long residency in the University’s Advanced General Dentistry Education Program. In 1989, he established his private practice in Woodbury, Minnesota, a growing community east of St. Paul. During this time, he served as a part time clinical instructor at the University of Minnesota. He also treated home-bound and nursing home patients for Dental Home Care and served on their Board of Directors for seven years.

Dr. Edlund completed the United States Dental Institute’s two-year orthodontic program in 1992. Today he, his associates, and a staff of dedicated dental professionals have a flourishing practice where they provide everything from basic preventive care to complex cosmetic dentistry. Dr. Edlund’s goal is to provide state-of-the-art dental care in an atmosphere that is both relaxing and reassuring. An advocate of dental implants, Dr. Edlund was also recently awarded Fellowship status by the International Congress of Oral Implantologists.

An avid fisherman, Dr. Edlund is also passionate about sports. He and Dr. Pelke are the official dentists for the Minnesota Wild hockey team and the St. Paul Saints baseball team.
