Carl E. Schneider, D.D.S.
I grew up in Hibbing, MN, attended the University of St. Thomas, then received my post-graduate in Dentistry at the University of Minnesota in 2001. After graduating, I served as a Dental Officer in the United States Navy Dental Corps for three years. From here, I joined our fantastic team at 44th Street Dental in 2004.
My wife Stephanie and I reside in Edina with our 3 children; Graydon (11), Frances (9), and Freddie (6). I have many interests outside of dentistry which include spending time with my family, skiing, hunting, fishing, coaching the kids in their many activities, and playing hockey and golf. Also, I am a member of the Edina-Morningside Rotary Club, an organization which gives me the opportunity to give back to the community to keep it growing and strong.
As many of you may know, I am a 3rd generation dentist. Following in the footsteps of both my father and grandfather, I have had tremendous mentors who have inspired me to have the same passion for dentistry as they did. I love dentistry because it allows me to create smiles and relationships that last a lifetime.
