What Sets Us Apart

Your Smile: Our Passion

At Dakota Smiles, we love helping our patients achieve excellent oral health, one person at a time. Offering a range of family and cosmetic dental care, we improve lives and smiles, comfortably.

Dakota Smiles was founded in 2008, by the husband-and-wife team of Dr. Charles Duchsherer and Dr. Julie Kennedy. We were joined by Dr. Bethany Baillargeon Marx and Dr. Lisa Kyllo. Our family and cosmetic dentistry office is housed in a brand-new, beautiful facility that was built with your comfort in mind.

Our office features comforting colors, state-of-the-art technology, and, best of all, a team of experienced people focused on one thing: delivering painless, life-improving dental care.

The Dakota Smiles Philosophy

  • We are passionate about serving our patients in an honest, ethical, and trusting environment.
  • We provide beautiful dentistry with exceptional quality and superior customer service.
  • As a team of talented individuals, we will succeed by respecting our differences, being accountable for our actions, and always being willing to help one another.
  • We strive to exceed our patients’ expectations, and promise to work hard and give it our all!

Everything we do in our office has one goal in mind: helping you achieve a healthy, beautiful, and lasting smile.

We deliver personalized, gentle dental care that’s tailored to your situation. We focus a lot of time on patient education. It’s important for you to understand your unique oral health and how it affects overall body health. We’ll teach you and give you the tools and information needed to make positive changes in your life.

Pediatric Dentistry

Dr. Kennedy sees and cares for the children and teens in our practice. She has extensive continuing education in pediatric dental care and, being a mother herself, excels at connecting with younger patients.

Knowing that a child’s first dental visits set the tone for future feelings about dentistry, Dr. Kennedy and our team ensure that every visit is enjoyed. We encourage children’s natural curiosity and desire for independence, and teach them how to take great care of their teeth and smile.
