every amazing company is an
extraordinary story to tell.
For 36 years, the team at Personal
Care Dentistry has been treat-
ing patients like they were family
with compassion, respect and
excellence. Their family of dentists,
hygienists and office staff blend the
latest technology with a gentle touch
in a warm, caring atmosphere. Their
never-ending quest for excellence
in dental care has resulted in Dr.
Walter Hunt, D.D.S., the founder
of Personal Care Dentistry, being
named Top Dentist by Minneapolis
St. Paul Magazine for 4 consecutive
years and voted Top Dentist by the
Roseville Review for the last 7 years.
Dentistry is not what it used
to be, emphasizes Dr. Hunt.
Advancements in dental technol-
ogy, paired with our highly experi-
enced team, now create a treatment
experience that is quicker, longer
lasting, and more enjoyable than
ever before.
Personal Care Dentistry, located
in Roseville at 2233 Hamline
Avenue North, Suite 320, recently
expanded their clinic to take up the
entire third floor of the office build-
ing they are in. They now have more
than 8,000 square feet of state-of-
the-art treatment facilities for their
four dentists and more than a dozen
dental hygienists to provide the very
best care possible. This is the third
time the clinic has expanded at this
same location, where they started in
1977 with less than 500 square feet
of space.
Many of our patients have been
coming to us for decades, notes
Zach Hunt, Clinic Administrator at
Personal Care Dentistry. They truly
feel we are an extension of their fam-
ily and that they can always depend
on us to provide excellent care based
on compassion, respect and personal-
ized service. Our motto is We Serve
the Worlds Greatest Patients and we
take that approach with each of our
patients. Personal Care Dentistry
was recently awarded the Angies List
SuperService Award for the third
consecutive year.
According to Dr. Hunt, We
take the time to really listen to our
patients and provide close, personal
attention to best customize their
care. I know the kind of care that I
demand as a patient, and that is the
kind of care that I strive to provide.
I call it Golden Rule Dentistry. It is
a philosophy shared by all of our staff
Zach Hunt notes that Personal
Care Dentistry offers both same-day
emergency appointments and early
morning and evening appointments.
Whether youre an early bird or
night owl, we can accommodate you.
We open as early as 6:30 a.m. and
stay open as late as 8 p.m. We are
dedicated to making sure our services
are as easily available as possible.
Personal Care Dentistry offers a
variety of treatments and techniques
to keep patients comfortable dur-
ing their appointments, says Dr.
Hunt. Whether our patient suffers
from Dental Anxiety, a strong gag
reflex or simply prefer to be a little
less aware of the treatment theyre
receiving during their appointments
with us, they have options.
Personal Care Dentistry also
makes sure that all patients with
our without insurance can afford
access to the outstanding care
that they are known for providing.
Personal Care Dentistry accepts most
plans offered by the major dental
insurance providers.
For patients with restrictive
health insurance plans (or no health
insurance), there are several options
available. These include 1) Quality
Dental Plan a dental savings mem-
bership program that will cover all
of a patients preventive care and
a portion of restorative care, or 2)
CareCredit, a personal line of credit
that can be used for various health-
care treatments and procedures and
has no-interest and low-interest pay-
ment plans.
We truly believe that if you
make an appointment at our clinic,
you will experience the best in pre-
ventative, restorative and cosmetic
dentistry at Personal Care Dentistry,
says Zach Hunt in conclusion.
At Personal Care Dentistry, youll fnd award-winning dentistry that blends the
latest technology with a gentle touch in a warm, caring atmosphere. For 36 years,
patients have experienced the difference at Personal Care Dentistry!

Personal Care Dentistry Episcopal Homes of Minnesota
Midway Village will house three residences. They will add 168 new homes to Episcopal Homes' Midway campus. The Fairview Avenue Green Line station will be at the door.
Live life to the fullest at Episcopal Homes
Episcopal Homes President & CEO Marvin J. Plakut and Community Relations
Director Deb Veit with Midway Village rising behind them.
A lot has changed since Sister
Annette RelI Iounded the original
Episcopal Church Home in 1894.
'Sister Annettes mission to
proviae safe, aignihea homes for
seniors ana support their physical,
social, ana spiritual neeas has
remainea unchangea,` says Deb
Veit, Director oI Community
Relations, 'but our aehnition of
Sister Annettes mission has grown
in scope ana scale.`
Episcopal Homes` mission
has grown to include the entire
continuum oI senior homes and
services: Long-Term Care, Short-
Term Rehab, Assisted Living,
Catered Living, Independent
Living, and Home Care.
'We set the stage for all of our
resiaents to fully embrace life,`
says Veit, 'ana people aont have
to be Episcopalian to live here. In
fact, most of our resiaents arent.`
Midway ViIIage Rising
When Midway Village is com-
pleted later this year, it will add
three new residences to Episcopal
Homes` Midway campus: The
Terrace at Iris Park (Catered
Living), Episcopal Church Home
- The Gardens (Skilled Nursing
and Memory Care), and Midway
Pointe (AIIordable Independent
Living). 'Miaway Jillage will
grow the number of resiaents our
home campus serves by 60,`
says Marvin J. Plakut, Episcopal
Homes President and CEO. 'The
aemana for what we ao is so great
that all three resiaences shoula be
fully occupiea when they open.`
Te idea behind Te Terrace
at Iris Park is for residents to be
able to stay in their homes for the
rest of their lives, says Veit. We
will help preserve and enhance their
independence by catering to their
needs as they change.
Te Terrace will ofer 58 one
and two-bedroom apartments. It
will open this fall on November 1

with the Green Line at the door.
Fewer than 10 apartments remain.
Minnesota's First
Episcopal Church Home -
The Gardens will be the Iirst
Skilled Nursing and Memory
Care residence in Minnesota built
around the nationally acclaimed

Moael of Care.
Imagine your loved one living in
a 10-person home and enjoying
four times more personal attention
than in conventional nursing
homes! For the whole story, visit
The third residence in Midway
Village will be Midway Pointe.
There are already over 250 people
on the waiting list Ior its 50 aIIord-
able one-bedroom apartments.
'Many people actually become
more active when they move here,`
concludes Veit. 'Freeaom from
home maintenance chores opens
up time for them to focus on the
things they love, ana they ao'`
The Green Line will be at the
door when Midway Village opens,
and that will give residents even
more Ireedom. It will be an exciting
place to call HOME.
As he begins his 45th year
of auto service, Ted Brausen,
owner of Brausens Family
Repair Centers, says he wants
to thank customers for sup-
porting his family for two
generations, including loyal
customers who move away
but still keep coming back
for service.
His customers would prob-
ably like to thank him as
well for offering high-quality
service and products for their
automobiles all these years.
I am a good customer
and they treat me really
well, says Liz Ofstead of
Shoreview, a customer for
over 15 years. I like the
repairs and maintenance they
do, and theyre upfront about
telling me the cost, which is
as reasonable as any place.
They advise me if my tires
can last a few more months
and if its worth it to do cer-
tain repairs or just buy a new
car. ... And they offer me
Brausen started manag-
ing the Arden Hills busi-
ness when he was 17 and a
senior at Mounds View High
School after his father, Joe,
who started the business in
1969, could no longer do
so because of medical rea-
sons. Over the years, Ted
Brausen expanded the busi-
ness, adding service stations
in Roseville and Blaine,
and more recently, Blaine
Tire and Auto Center. He
offers full automotive ser-
vice, including brake repairs,
regular maintenance and tire
Brausens wife, Cheri,
does the bookkeeping while
his son, Jake, is a service
manager at the Arden Hills
location. And some staff
members have worked there
so long they are like family,
Brausen adds. Three employ-
ees have been with the
business for over 30 years,
including Dave Isakson, who
manages the Arden Hills
location and Mike Kelly, the
Roseville manager.
Customers are treated like
family as well, and are greet-
ed by name. Brausen also
offers courtesy rides in the
area and free loner cars when
a vehicle is in for major
Brausen explains that in
addition to providing the
highest quality customer
service, his business is also
quality-driven when it comes
to repairs. Theres a lot of
difference in car parts. It
always intrigues me why peo-
ple would want the cheapest
tires and brakes and give up
a lot of safety and features
and noise problems by going
cheap. We put the right
parts in, not the cheapest,
and were honest about what
we sell people.
Ted notes customers can
make service appointments
on their website at www. And his
computerized record-keeping
system makes it easy to keep
track of service done and ser-
vice needed.
In the 70s if a car could
make 100,000 miles, it was
amazing. Now you can go an
additional 100,000 miles if
your car is well maintained,
Brausen says. Its important
to have the right people
doing the maintenance, and
we are the right people. My
employees are paid well to
take care of you, and thats a
big reason people trust us.

The location of iSight Family
Eye Care may be familiar, but
as soon as you walk through the
doors, you wont believe your eyes.
iSight, located in the space of
Graf Optical in the shopping cen-
ter adjacent to Byerlys, boasts new
owners, a new look, new brands
and a new philosophy of customer
Were family owned, customer
focused and very involved in
the day-to-day operations of the
practice. says Jim Johnson, who
operates iSight with his wife Jill.
Although iSight has only been
in its Roseville location for a few
months, the Johnsons are not new
to the optical business.
They own Metro Optics in
downtown St. Paul, Cottage
Grove Optical and recently sold
Dinkytown Optical to their
daughter and son-in-law.
In addition they own Specs on
the Beach, their sunglass website.
The staff at iSight has been
impressed with how quickly the
community has embraced their
presence. This is a great commu-
nity and we are happy to be a part
of it. Jim says.
We have established a rela-
tionship of trust with new and
former customers in a short time.
Jill notes. Many patients have
referred us to their friends and
family and will stop by to chat on
their way to Byerlys.
Great Selection,
Great Prices
Customers having trouble find-
ing frames that flatter them will
love iSights variety of eyeglasses.
The experienced opticians will
recommend styles specially suited
to an individuals face shape, style
preference and occupation.
There are also special selec-
tions for patients that have chal-
lenges finding the perfect fit, such
as larger men, petite women and
people of Asian descent.
Among the 1,500 eyeglass
and sunglass frames on display at
iSight, there are frames for every
budget, with frame and lens prices
usually lower than their larger
franchise competitors.
But that doesnt mean iSight
is skimping on quality. While
many eyewear stores carry a lim-
ited selection of products, the
Johnsons personally handpick
eyewear from a variety of large
and small, specialty manufacturers.
Since we are independently
owned, we have the freedom and
flexibility to carry over 100 dif-
ferent brands. says Jim. No one
should walk out of here without
finding something they love. Jill
We often hear that a customer
has been looking everywhere for a
perfect pair of glasses, and finally
found them at iSight, Jill says.
Often for much less than they
would have spent elsewhere.
Their selection of frames
include well known frames from
Ray-Ban, Oakley, Prada, Tom
Ford and Tag Heuer and specialty
frames from TC Charton, Dillon,
Legre, Police, Eco and Spy.
To give them an upperhand on
service, the Johnsons own their
own eyewear lab, which means
single-vision glasses can be ready
by the next day.
Dr. Chad Legois
iSight accepts most insurance
plans and has partnered with Dr.
Chad Legois, who performs eye
exams on Mondays, Wednesdays,
Fridays and Saturdays with eve-
ning appointments available.
Originally from the Green Bay
WI area, Dr. Legois graduated
cum laude from Southern College
of Optometry. He has been
practicing in the Twin Cities
area since 2005. Prior to join-
ing iSight, Dr. Legois practiced
in a variety of settings ranging
from refractive surgery to general
optometry. Regardless of the
practice type, his professional
philosophy has always been to
provide each patient with a thor-
ough, comprehensive and courte-
ous examination while leaving no
question unanswered.
With Dr. Legois experience
and their state-of-the-art equip-
ment, they can provide early
detection for glaucoma, retinal
problems and macular degenera-
We look forward to meeting
former customers of Graf Optical
and exceeding the expectations
of new iSight customers, Jill
says. We will all do our best to
help you see your best and turn
heads along the way.
You won't believe ,our e,es at iSight

A mechanical whirring fre-
quently fills the back room of
Georges Shoes & Repair in
Arden Hills, as three family
members take turns stitching,
grinding and polishing. They
refurbish a wide variety of leather
goods from a worn pair of work
boots to a fraying baseball glove.
Theres so many things you
can fix, owner Ron George says.
Is it worth it? Bring it in and
well tell you.
Cobblings been the George
familys business since 1905, and
the shoe store and repair shop
recently celebrated 50 years
in the northern suburbs. The
Georges sell well-made shoes,
socks and accessories and revital-
ize and customize footwear, hand-
bags and whatever else can be
saved with a little leather, a few
stitches or a new sole.
Theyve cleaned off winter
salt stains, stretched the calves
of leather boots, added Vibram
soles to woven shoes to get them
winter-ready and even restored a
cherished pair of womens shoes
after a dog chose them as a chew
But if something a customer
brings in is beyond repair, Ron
has no problem admitting it.
We like to tell them exact-
ly what theyre getting, he
explains. We dont like surprises.
And we like to be upfront.
Rons father moved the busi-
ness from West St. Paul in 1963.
Born into the craft, Ron explored
other trades for a while, but
eventually came back to shoes in
the 1970s.
He takes pride in his busi-
ness and takes care to make his
customers happy. Being a family
business, its personal, says Ron.
I like taking something and
making it better. The father of
fives getting ready to retire and
hand down the business to two of
his children, Melissa and Luke.
The family knows people value
what they put on their feet, and
Georges wants to make their
footwear last. They even have a
24-hour drop box for repairs.
We turn your old friends back
into new friends, adds Luke.
Their national customer base
includes some big names. Theyve
done Nordstroms repairs since
1992, fixed bejeweled boots for
Madonnas tour in 2012 and
recently shipped a shine box to
an Olympic speed-skater.
On the retail side, the Georges
make friends.
We like to have good rela-
tionships with our customers,
says Melissa. Their varied selec-
tion includes shine boxes that
Ron often makes himself, and
they offer many brands of foot-
wear, including Minnetonka
Moccasins, UGG, Dansko and
Merrell. Georges is an authorized
Birkenstock repair location, and
half of the back wall and a dis-
play are dedicated to the popular
Smartwool socks. Also available:
Beautiful Leather Goods coin
purses, shoe polish and other
The Georges also like to do
good in the community. Theyve
donated about 1,000 pairs of
shoes annually to Soles 4 Souls
and gave to Josephs Coat, a local
non-profit that offers clothing,
household items and hygiene
products to those in need.
Whether youre looking for
something new or hoping to save
something old, stop by Georges
Shoes and Repair. Chances are
youll find more knowledge,
variety and experience than you
expected just as other loyal
customers have.

Clients who walk into Hank
Allwordens State Farm office in
Roseville may have forgotten why
they chose State Farm in the first
place, as theyre greeted by new
faces in the front office.
After all, theyre accustomed
to having their insurance in
Allwordens and longtime advisor
Pa Vangs hands, and the variety
of financial products, flexibility
to alter plans when their needs
change and fast response time have
become something they expect.
But that strength, speed and
broad selection are no accident,
Allworden points out.
State Farm is number 44 in
Fortune 500
he notes,
adding that
his team
of trusted
agents Stacy
Rebechini and
Vang is the
main reason
behind the suc-
cess of his local office.
Our mission is to help people
manage the risks of everyday life,
recover from the unexpected and
realize their dreams, Allworden
explains. Our success is built on
a foundation of shared values,
quality service and relationships,
mutual trust, integrity and finan-
cial strength.
That mission translates into
policies that fit. Newlyweds with a
first apartment can find affordable
renters insurance that protects
all those gifts and new purchases.
Young families can know their
homes and autos are insured and
repairs or replacement will be has-
sle-free. And, later, they can rest
assured their loved ones will be
provided for with a thoughtfully-
planned life policy.
But State Farm offers much
more, Allworden says. Part of the
security he can offer is financial
planning and financial products
such as low-interest loans to help
people map out and fuel their
financial journeys.
Business owners know bet-
ter than anyone that margins
are slim, liabilities are many and
finding someone to give the time
and attention to their particular
needs and safeguard every aspect is
invaluable. Thats why Allworden
is a trusted partner in the success
of many local ventures.
Being an agent is a great source
of pride for me. Every day, we have
an opportunity to meet with peo-
ple, uncover their needs and offer
solutions, he adds.
Allworden has been with State
Farm for 23 years, spending 10 as
a claim superintendent and 13 as
an agent serving the St. Paul area.
His hard work
let him open
his own office
in the shopping
center next to
the Roseville
licensing center.
It offers private
consulting areas
for individu-
als and groups
or families to
discuss the
vital questions
Allworden can answer.
The office also participates
in safe-driving programs, offer-
ing the Steer Clear curriculum
to Roseville Area High School
classes. Not only do they cover
driving safety, they outline the
costs a young driver will have to
pay for insurance as well as the
discounts they can earn with top
Its a community effort,
Allworden says, and the com-
munity has responded. Last year,
his agency was Best Insurance
Provider in the Reviews Readers
Choice survey.
Its no wonder that by the time
clients leave Hank Allwordens
State Farm office in Roseville, they
know they and maybe their
neighbor will be coming back.
A referral is the greatest com-
pliment we can get, Allworden
says with a smile.

John Kopas says.
Abbey Carpets customer
service is so extraordinary that
John, now in his 80s, received
the only Lifetime Achievement
award ever given by Abbey
Carpet. He and wife Rieta
opened their store 40 years ago
in 1973. That store was located
in the Brighton Village Shopping
Center, which was brand new
and beautiful.
Rieta would leave at 3 p.m. to
meet the children coming home
from school, and John would
remain in the store until 9 p.m.
and sometimes do measures after
that. It wasnt easy, says John.
Abbey Carpet is a franchise,
and John and Rietas store is
the second oldest in the nation.
Abbey Carpet has grown and
now numbers over 1,000 stores
in the United States.
In 2003, John and his part-
ner Tom Link relocated to
their 8,000-square-foot location
(located next to the Mermaid
Entertainment Center in
Mounds View).
Because of their dedica-
tion and emphasis on quality
service, Angies List has given
Abbey Carpet of Mounds View
the Super Service award an
unprecedented four years in a
row. In addition, theyve earned
an A plus rating with the
Better Business Bureau and 100
percent satisfaction with the
Checkbook Consumer Report.
John says his business has
installed carpet and flooring for
multiple generations and he is
greeted warmly wherever he goes.

had in meeting people and mak-
ing their homes beautiful, he

Great Clips
In 2014, Great Clips is cel-
ebrating another successful year at
their new location on Lexington
Avenue in Roseville.
After nine years at its former
location, the salon moved across
the street to 1789 Lexington Ave.
in 2012.
Franchise owners Renae and
Gary Newport say theyd like to
thank their loyal customers who
have followed them to their new
location and invite everyone to
stop in to see what the staff at
Great Clips has to offer.
It does not seem possible that
weve been in this community now
for over ten years, but we love it!
says Renae.
Its no surprise that the salon
has such a strong customer base;
at Great Clips, stylists are expe-
rienced, appointments arent
necessary,and prices are affordable
for any budget.
A lot of people might be sur-
prised to know weve held our
price points for over 10 years,
Renae says. Haircuts are $14 for
adults and $12 for seniors and
children, and clients can get other
services a la carte whether it
be a shampoo, style or perm.
You only pay for what you want
and need, says Renae, adding that
people can pay triple the price to
have their hair cut at other salons
salons that may not have stylists
with as much experience as those
at Great Clips.
Great Clips in Roseville also
accepts non-expired competitor
coupons, and offers discounted
haircuts at a rate of $9.99 to all
active military men and women.
Not only can Great Clips cli-
ents save some cash, but time as
well. Great Clips is open seven
days a week, from 9 a.m. to 9 p.m.
Monday through Friday, 8 a.m. to
6 p.m. on Saturday, and 10 a.m. to
5 p.m. on Sunday, so even those
with the busiest of schedules can
find a time that works.
And if youre really pressed for
time, try Great Clips new Online
Check-In service, which allows
customers to add their name to the
salons wait list even before they

sign in online. Great Clips Clip
Notes feature is another tech-
savvy tool the salon offers. When
someone visits the salon, staff
enters in the clients name, which
stylist cut their hair, and how it
was cut. Next time the client vis-
its, stylists have all that informa-
tion at their fingertips.
The team of experienced styl-
ists at Great Clips in Roseville
has worked together for years, and
salon manager Dana Scheithauer
has been with the company for a
Customers have confidence in
seeing familiar faces, Renae says.
I believe its the people that make
the business successful. Newport
herself has been with the company
since she first helped run a Great
Clips franchise in 1995. She has
also served as Corporate Regional
Director for the Minneapolis-based
Newport said she and her
husband jumped at the oppor-
tunity to purchase their own
Great Clips franchises for many
reasons, including the companys
stellar reputation. Since 1982,
Great Clips has been offering
competitively-priced, high quality
hair services for men, women and
children. Now, with more than
3,500 salons across North America,
Great Clips salons serve more than
one million customers each week.

In addition to offering stellar ser-

of a woman who called Kath recent-

homes may have been built with

dont measure up to better-grade

A seamless process
Well go the extra mile to help

And with a more than quali-

Most jobs are completed on the

Everybody works together, and

That all changed when Linders
auctioned off all its seasonal gar-

the display shelves) that was
stationed outside his store every
spring and summer.
And best of all, he says, long-
time manager of the local Linders
garden mart, Kathy Harrell, and
her crew of seasonal workers will
be back this year.
She and I are going to try to
make the transition as seamless
as possible, he says. We want to

maple, cherry and birch, Lisa notes the company
also sells and installs exotic wood from many other
parts of the world. The woods can be installed
unfnished or pre-fnished and come in a variety
of colors. Exotic woods, with their luxurious dark
tones, have proved especially popular, as they
stand up to heavy trafc without losing their looks.
And wood, unlike other coverings, is an invest-
ment in home value.
At $10-$14 a square foot, renewable hardwood
foors can be more expensive than carpeting, but
new carpeting does not increase the value of your
home, Lisa says.
Steve explains that a project installing a
hardwood foor in the familys weekend cabin at
Sturgeon Lake led to the fooring businesss start.
A former teacher and counselor in Minneapo-
lis Pubic Schools, he laid the foor in 1980 with
Lindas help.
They liked it so much, they went back to
Roseville, ripped up the carpets in their home
and replaced them with hardwood foors. When
a neighbor saw the results and asked for help
with his own home, Floors by Steve was of and
When Steve retired from teaching in 1995 and
Lisa joined the business, it was still home-based.
Lisa started at the kitchen countertop, moved to
the basement, and then to a tiny ofce to manage
orders and accounts.
Today, the Schmids have a 2,000 square-foot
showroom in Roseville thats lined with wood
fooring samples to view. Both Steve and Lisa
have earned craftsman degrees from the National
Wood Flooring Association and continue to at-
tend seminars to stay up-to-date on hardwood
fooring trends and techniques.
Floors by Steve handles any size job, from
small homes to big commercial projects that re-
ally draw trafc, such as the American Swedish
Institute, Mill Valley Kitchen and a just-completed
job at a Pizza Luc restaurant. Theres a crew of
skilled installers, some of whom have 30 years
experience. The company also brings in experts
specializing in steps, vents, moldings and trim to
join the team when needed. And if a customer
needs design help on an install, well send out a
professional at no charge for the frst hour, Lisa
Company employees are experts at patching,
repairing, cleaning and recoating existing foors,
as well. By specializing only in wood, we ofer
unequaled quality, service and expertise, Linda
says. From the initial greeting in our showroom
to our knowledgeable sales staf and experienced
technicians, every stage of your experience is sure
to be a pleasant one.
The company uses a dust containment sanding
system that eliminates much of the dust associ-
ated with refnishing and ofers environmentally-
friendly waterborne fnishes by Bona. These
Swedish polyurethane fnishes have no noxious
fumes, so homeowners and their pets dont need
to be absent while their foors are being worked
A price comparison proved that everyday
prices at Floors by Steve are often lower than the
sale prices at the chain stores.
All of which leads to many rave customer
reviews, such as the one received from Nancy
M. of St. Paul: We love our new foors! We fnd
ourselves just staring at them!
Floors by Steve: The family keeps on growing,
just like the business!
Steve Schmid, Paul Schmid, Patrick Pohl and Lisa Pohl (left to right), and their animal companions, are the

Chalet Dental
Show off your smile with the help of Chalet Dental
Many people might
think it takes months, even
years, for dental work to
effectively transform their
smiles. But near-instant
results are possible with
Chalet Dental.
Specializing in cosmetic
dentistry, Chalet Dental
in Roseville helps patients
achieve confidence in their
smiles, often within just a
couple of office visits.
Owner Dr. Brent Fred-
rickson notes the practice
offers a plethora of options
such as clear, removable
Invisalign braces, veneers
and implants. Chalet Den-
tal also provides same-day
crowns and can fix unsight-
ly gaps and broken teeth
after just one or two trips
to the office. Additionally,
chairside whitening deliv-
ers optimal results for even
the most stained teeth.
People might not real-
ize how quickly they can
change their appearance,
Fredrickson notes. And
the overall appearance of
your teeth has a huge effect
on how young you look.
Because dentists have in-
depth knowledge of facial
muscles and facial expres-
sions, Chalet Dental also
offers Botox treatments to
compete against the signs of
aging. Patients will gener-
ally see an improvement in
their appearance within two
to eight days after treat-
ments, and Fredrickson
notes the treatments are less
invasive than most proce-
dures offered by plastic sur-
geons, such as face lifts.
All in one place
In addition to providing
cosmetic dentistry, Chalet
Dental Care also treats pa-
tients with gum problems.
Periodontist Dr. Hema Me-
non specializes in rebuild-
ing and contouring patients
gum lines. She also replaces
missing teeth with dental
implants. Chalet Dental per-
forms a wide range of pro-
cedures all in one location.
We pretty much do ev-
erything in one place, says
patient care coordinator
Bridget LaBahn.
In treating a wide range
of conditions, Chalet Dental
makes patients comfort a
top priority. Electric instru-
ments used by dentists and
hygienists are quieter than
ever, digital scanning has
replaced the messy, foul-
tasting molding material
previously used for tooth
impressions, and digital X-
rays can now be taken with-
out film being placed in the
patients mouth.
We have state of the art
equipment for everything.
LaBahn explains.
The Chalet Dental office,
with its calming earthtones,
warm decor and skylights,
makes patients feel more
like theyre taking a trip
to the spa than the dentist.
The friendly staff contrib-
utes to the offices relaxed
Many patients have been
coming to Chalet Dental for
years, and enjoy seeing the
familiar faces of reception-
ists and experienced hygien-
ists and dentists theyve be-
come comfortable with over
time. The practice initially
opened in 1973 and became
Chalet Dental in 1984.
Patients are like family
here, says office manager
Lori Scheller, who joined the
practice in 1978.
Call to schedule a compli-
mentary consultation to find
out how Chalet Dental can
help transform your smile,
because as Fredrickson says:
Your smile makes you feel
good inside and out.

Hamernicks Decorating Center

Despite a lagging economy,
Hamernicks Decorating Center on
Rice Street in St. Pauls North End
has been growing on its tradition
of ofering top-quality products
and service. Owners Ted and
Lynn Natus attribute the business
strength to a loyal customer base
and a knowledgeable, hardwork-
ing staf.
Several of Hamernicks more
than 100 employees have been
with the company for a decade or
more. Unlike most of the big box
stores, Hamernicks employees are
experts in their felds, with special-
ized knowledge in the products
and services the store provides.
We dont have a lot of turnover
with our staf, Lynn says. We are
good to our employees and they
are good to our customers.
And all of the stafs hard work
is paying dividends. Since Ted and
Lynn purchased the business from
founder Ed Hamernick in 2000,
the company has expanded six-
fold. A few years back, the com-
pany opened a 22,500-square-foot
Mill Direct warehouse complete
with a spacious showroom fully
stocked with carpet, tile and vinyl
products customers can see and
touch as they make their choices.
The building is conveniently locat-
ed directly across the street from
Hamernicks home ofce, which
houses the companys professional
design center and residential
After years of hard work and
innovation, Ted, Lynn and their
dedicated staf have turned
Hamernicks into one of the re-
gions premier decorating centers.

or laminate fooring, new coun-
tertops, window treatments or a
fresh coat of paint to your home,
Hamernicks is truly your one-stop
shop for all of your decorating

continuously operating from its
current location for over 50 years.

years ago and has been wholly

Ted and Lynn have no plans of
slowing down; in fact, last year
may have been their busiest yet.
Ted just fnished his year-long
reign as King Boreas LXXVII of the
St. Paul Winter Carnival. It was a
position he thoroughly enjoyed,
although it added 2,000 hours of
volunteer service to the Natus al-
ready busy schedule the couple

been so good to them over the
We both want to give back to
the community and what a better
way to give than the opportunity
we were given through the Winter
Carnival, Lynn says.
While Ted and Lynn have had
multiple opportunities to move
out of their North End location
over the years, they have no inten-
tion of going anywhere.
Rice Street has made us what
we are, the area has been so good
to us. We have never given any
thought of going anywhere else,
Ted says. Ive been blessed to
have a wonderful family, a second

The Truman Company
Devoting himself to the
rare coin and precious metal
trade for well over three
decades, Westerlings com-
mitment to the customer is
second to none. From their
Roseville office, he and his
associates offer purchases
and appraisals for estates,
banks, insurance companies
and individuals.
My staff and I are dedi-
cated to helping people pre-
serve and grow their wealth,
Westerling explains. Thats
why The Truman Company
offers personalized service
tailored to each individual.
Introduced to the busi-
ness by his Uncle Truman, a
young Roger became enam-
ored with coins. This nearly-
lifelong passion encouraged
Westerling to open his own
business under the Truman
Every time he visited my
family, he gave me a coin that
had an interesting history.
His hope was that I would
develop a real interest in
rare and unusual coins, and
it worked, Westerling says
with a smile.
Westerling visited
Minnesota to appraise a col-
lection in 1998, and was so
touched by the welcome he
received he decided to move
both his home and business
to St. Paul. He currently
works with about 3,000 cli-
ents around the country.
Westerling is a life member
of the American Numismatic
Association and holds an
A+ rating with the Better
Business Bureau.
His knowledge can reas-
sure people that theyre
insuring or pricing such
items correctly. Im more
than happy to visit a home or
bank to review a collection,
Westerling notes. Theres a
market for everything!
Though old coins appreci-
ate gradually, precious met-
als have undergone dramatic
spikes over the past decade
in value, Westerling adds.
From 2002 to 2013, the value
of silver went up by 668 per-
cent and gold by 595 percent.
Many of Westerlings custom-
ers are currently transferring
individual retirement account
funds from banks to a pre-
cious metal IRA.
I honestly think the prices
for gold and silver will con-
tinue to rise throughout our
lifetime, while the U.S. dol-
lar declines, Westerling
explains. Transferring to a
precious metal IRA can be an
excellent investment.

Devoting himself to the
rare coin and precious
metal trade for well over
three decades, Westerlings
commitment to the cus-
tomer is second to none.
From their Roseville office,
he and his associates offer
purchases and appraisals
for estates, banks, insurance
companies and individuals.
My staff and I are dedi-
cated to helping people
preserve and grow their
wealth, Westerling
explains. Thats why The
Truman Company offers
personalized service tai-
lored to each individual.
Introduced to the busi-
ness by his Uncle Truman, a
young Roger became enam-
ored with coins. This near-
ly-lifelong passion encour-
aged Westerling to open
his own business under the
Truman name.
Every time he visited
my family, he gave me a
coin that had an interest-
ing history. His hope was
that I would develop a real
interest in rare and unusu-
al coins, and it worked,
Westerling says with a
Westerling visited
Minnesota to appraise a
collection in 1998, and was
so touched by the welcome
he received he decided to
move both his home and
business to St. Paul. He
currently works with about
3,000 clients around the

His knowledge can reas-
sure people that theyre
insuring or pricing such
items correctly. Im more
than happy to visit a home
or bank to review a col-
lection, Westerling notes.
Theres a market for
Though old coins appre-
ciate gradually, precious
metals have undergone
dramatic spikes over the
past decade in value,
Westerling adds. From 2002
to 2013, the value of silver
went up by 668 percent and
gold by 595 percent. Many
of Westerlings customers
are currently transfer-
ring individual retirement
account funds from banks
to a precious metal IRA.
I honestly think the
prices for gold and sil-
ver will continue to rise
throughout our life-
time, while the U.S. dol-
lar declines, Westerling
explains. Transferring to
a precious metal IRA can
be an excellent invest-
Customers will feel
at home in The Truman
Company office, where
they might even meet
Westerlings pooch, Sonny,
and his wife, Donna, a
Twin Cities artist whose
work is featured through-
out the office.

They say that dog is mans
best friend, but the staff at
St. Francis Animal and Bird
Hospital know that cats, birds
and rabbits are too. St. Francis
can help you take care of all
of your best friends, furry and
They specialize in the care of
dogs, cats, birds, rabbits, ferrets
and rodents.
The close-knit team of animal
lovers understands the special
relationship between people and
their pets. Thats why they go
above and beyond to provide
compassionate and quality care
for every pet.
We think of ourselves as the
small, neighborhood practice.
We set out to be part of the fam-
ily, says Dr. Jennifer Blair, who
owns the practice.
Being part of the family
means developing individual
relationships with each of
their clients. The doctors at St.
Francis afford a half an hour
for each appointment so they
can talk with clients about
their pets health. They make
follow-up calls to ensure pets
are healing well, even calling on
Sundays to check in with criti-
cal cases, and they give clients
one-on-one time with veterinary
technicians to learn about treat-
ment and care.
The staff at St. Francis feel
a responsibility to share their
knowledge and expertise with
the community. Their vision
statement says: We provide the
tools that our clients need to
make careful and informed med-
ical decisions for our pets.
One of the tools the clinic
provides is its website. Staff
know people go online to look
up information on pet care, so
they post educational sources on
their website.
St. Francis began serving the
Roseville community in 1992.
From a family-run business
that operated out of a garage,
St. Francis has expanded into
a five-doctor practice with
20 technicians and assistants.
The practices most recent
expansion occurred in October
2012 when it hired a new doctor.
Dr. Katie Cartledge worked at
a practice in south Minneapolis
before joining the team at St.
Francis. She says her move was
inspired by her desire to learn
more about St. Francis niche:
avian medicine. She loves the
variety of exotic birds owners
bring to the practice, as well as
the opportunity to share knowl-
edge with so many other doc-
Its been a fabulous team to
join, Dr. Cartledge says. We
provide very good care here.
Their services include den-
tistry, surgery, radiology, ultra-
sonography and more. A full
in-house lab enables them to
process tests and results quickly.
And their full pharmacy makes
picking up medicine easy and
We provide your pets medi-
cation at an affordable price,
Dr. Blair says.
St. Francis is dedicated to
supporting the community and
the people and pets who are
part of it, whether its providing
pre-adoption care to pets from
local shelters, teaching avian
medicine at the University of
Minnesota or participating in
the Roseville parade.
We try very hard to be part
of the neighborhood, part of the
community and part of our cli-
ents families, Dr. Blair says. St. Francis Animal and Bird Hospital

Were constantly changing the
menu, says General Manager
Tom Horwath. We have all the
basics, but our signature dishes
you cant get anywhere else.
Known for its specialty burgers,
Sensers features popular fan fa-
vorites like The MVP, a 10-ounce
hand-pattied burger topped with
creamy aged Wisconsin ched-
dar, prime cut smoked peppered
bacon, sweet caramelized onions
and a house-made bourbon BBQ
sauce. Or try the Black & Bleu,
a savory 10-ounce burger dusted
with Cajun seasonings, covered
with cave-aged blue cheese, sweet
caramelized onions, creamy aged
Wisconsin cheddar cheese and
prime-cut smoked peppered ba-
And for those with eyes big-
ger than their stomachs, Sensers

fll you up... and then some. The
2 1/2-pound beef patty is topped
with 12 strips of bacon and totals
6 1/2 pounds of food. Its free if

100 have ever fnished it.
Not in the mood for a burger?
No problem! Sensers has pizzas,
fatbreads and other mouthwater-
ing entrees to suit any set of taste
buds. New additions include Mac

sions before each football game

donated to the team. After the
game, Sensers served a pizza
bufet for the players, their fami-
lies, coaches and friends.
It helps bring everybody

When they frst opened their
doors in 1980, Apollo Heating
and Air Conditioning set the
bar for excellent service in the
metro area.
For the past 34
years, the family-

like Lennox, Car-

The knowledgeable and
friendly staf will help you
determine whats best for your
home, no matter what service
you may need. Apollo is pre-
pared to tackle any issue
whether your furnace is on the
fritz, air conditioner is acting
up or just want to make your
home more energy ef cient,
Apollos technicians are ready
to lend their expertise.
Comfort specialist Ryan
Halverson says Apollo has
seen a recent uptick in business
since housing construction and
remodeling is on the rise. Many
clients are choosing to install
new, more energy-ef cient elec-
tric heat pumps, he says.
These new variable-speed
heat pumps from Lennox can
reduce home utility costs by
49 percent for the majority of
winter, Halverson says. This
reduces the reliance on gas and
propane, which are expensive.
Apollo has also been ex-
panding its air duct cleaning
service, and is prepared to
take on even the dustiest of
ducts. Blending state-of-the-art
technology with classic good
service, an Apollo technician
will come to your home and
take a video of whats in your
air ducts. If theres excessive
dust and debris, chances are
good your air ducts need to
be cleaned out. Using a roto-
brush to reduce the amount of
airborne dust and dander that
could contaminate your home,
a technician can whip your
ducts back into shape in a mat-
ter of hours.
Apollo is also convenient
for those on the go. As always,
Apollos staf is only a phone
call away, but customers can
also book appointments on
Apollos newly redesigned
An array of outstanding deals
and special ofers are also avail-
able on the site.
Were constantly updating
and redesigning our website
to make it more convenient for
folks to use, Halverson says.
In addition to providing
quality services at afordable
prices, Apollo is community-
minded. Partnering with Twin
Cities Live, Apollo has given
away a number of furnaces,
valued at $5,000 each, to fami-
lies in need this winter.
Its great to be able to give
back to the community, Op-
erations Manager Aaron Cave
says. Weve been getting a lot
of positive feedback from cus-
tomers about our Twin Cities
Live giveaways.
