Sandpiper Dental would like to announce the retirement of our long-term hygienist, Sandee.  Sandee was with Sandpiper Dental for over 37 years!  Through that time she witnessed many changes within the practices – updates in location, technology, techniques, staff, and developed relationships with multi-generational families.  She was an often requested hygienist who loved seeing her every six months!  Sandee will be greatly missed by both patients and by her fellow team members here at Sandpiper Dental.  We wish her the best of luck in her retirement and hope she enjoys her days off with her husband, Joel, and their family. 



Sandpiper Dental would like to announce the retirement of long-time dentist and owner, Dr. Thomas W. Waite.  We would like to congratulate him on a very long and successful career serving his patients and the community of Brooklyn Park for nearly 47 years!  We also wish to thank him for always giving his patients the finest oral care possible and for always being a kind, respectful, and generous employer to his team here at Sandpiper Dental.

Dr. Thomas W. Waite graduated with his Doctor of Dental Surgery degree from the University of Minnesota in 1969. He practiced for nearly 47 years and had completed advanced training in several areas of dental care, including aesthetic dentistry, BOTOX® for dentistry, and advanced restorative (face). Dr. Waite continued his education in the dental field several times over the course of his career and was a member of a number of prestigious professional organizations, including the American Dental Association, International Congress of Oral Implantology (Fellowship status), American Academy of Implant Dentistry, American College of Implant Dentistry, and American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry. He always wanted to give his patients the best care in a caring, personal environment.

Dr. Waite has a wonderful family, which includes a son, a daughter, four fun grandchildren, and a little dog named Sunny! He looks forward to being able to spend more time on the golf course!
