About Our Edina Dental Team 

44th Street Dental has a reputation for providing excellent dental care in Edina since the 1930’s. Although we operate in a new building that features state-of-the-art technology, our quality approach to care is old-fashioned. Our dentists, Steven J. Veker and Carl E. Schneider, emphasize building trust and personal connections with our patients and practice our philosophy of top-notch dental care. Whether a young patient is receiving their first checkup or a parent is coming in for cosmetic procedures, we offer the same level of detailed treatment and individual attention.

Our Treatment Philosophy

We pursue the utmost quality with our procedures. Dr. Veker and Dr. Schneider take the time to ensure that your smile is fully functional and aesthetically pleasing. Our whole team supports the doctors in delivering compassionate care by helping every visit be as positive as possible.

As soon as patients walk in the doors, they are treated like family and given personalized attention, where we answer any questions or assist with insurance paperwork. Whether in-office for important procedures or calling for help with a dental emergency, our patients can rely on consistent service from our Edina dental team. 

Efficient and Precise Care

Our doctors are committed to delivering modern treatment with tested methodologies and the newest technology. We offer procedures that are proven to produce predictable health results, better improving our patient’s wellbeing. With tools such as our 3D Cone Beam Scanner and digital x-ray machine, we can diagnose dental issues with precision and treat them proactively. 

Dr. Veker and Dr. Schneider combine their many years of experience with advanced technology to improve treatment results and deliver better care. We make root canal therapy a much faster process with our CEREC machine, which creates custom crowns in a single visit. Our doctors use a DIAGNOdent™ pen to find cavities in hard-to-reach areas, protecting patients from severe dental health issues caused by untreated decay. 

Comfortable Dental Treatments in a Positive Environment

We do everything possible to put patients at ease about their dental health and pay close attention when pain is a factor. The team at 44th Street Dental understands exactly what patients are going through when they have discomfort. Our clean and calm office is filled with natural light from our large windows, making for a relaxing environment. Furthermore, our dentists listen to patients and address any severe concerns as quickly as possible. If additional relief is needed, they can provide nitrous sedation.  

Helping Our Patients Afford Dental Care

Dental treatment is important to both self-confidence and general well-being, but it can be costly. We are providers for Delta Dental, Health Partners, and MetLife, which helps many receive necessary procedures. When patients need to divide the cost of dental treatments over time, we finance procedures through CareCredit. Our front-office staff is incredibly helpful and will explain a patient’s coverage or assist with any paperwork. 

Our Practice is proud to deliver care to Edina and Southwest Minneapolis. Visit or call 44th Street Dental receive the care that you deserve
