Dr. Susan Althoff’s interests in biology and her personal dental journey with extensive orthodontic treatment led her to pursue a dental career. As a child, she was at the dentist and orthodontist frequently for crowding, impacted teeth, and an uneven arch.
This extra time spent with dental providers made her comfortable in the dental setting and now allows her to relate to those with many dental concerns and needs. Before becoming a dentist, she obtained a Bachelor of Arts degree in biology from Concordia College, Moorhead in 2007, and worked for a dental office as an intern/assistant, solidifying her desire to become a dentist. After graduating from dental school in 2016, Dr. Althoff worked as a general dentist in Colorado Springs, Colorado, expanding her skills in fixed and removable prosthodontics, cosmetic dentistry, conscious sedation, pediatric dentistry and oral surgery. Dr. Althoff is certified in Invisalign (clear aligner) orthodontics and is actively involved in various professional dental study clubs.
Her focus is helping patients understand why treatment is recommended through intra-oral pictures and an open, honest dialogue so they can make an educated decision to improve their oral health. Dr. Althoff is motivated to provide excellent dental care and create positive, lasting relationships with her patients.
Away from the practice, Dr. Althoff enjoys spending time with her husband, Cory, their two children, Oliver and Lily, and dog, Minnie. Dr. Althoff and her family are originally from Fargo, North Dakota, and are excited to be closer to family and also to all the activities Minneapolis has to offer. She and her family enjoy being outdoors, watching Minnesota sports, and spending time with family and friends.
