They also enjoy eating good lefse, which is not easy to find outside of the state.

Friendly and personable. Never seemed hurried. Thoroughly answered a wide variety of questions and concerns. Wanted to make sure the treatment recommendations were affordable. Followed up the same day with a phone call when something needed to be changed in the treatment plan.
