The one dentist that can make your whole family smile.
Dr. Telly Pappas has built Distinctive Laser Dentistry practice by providing exceptional care customized to the unique needs of each patient, and utilizing the latest technologies to maximize performance and comfort. Dr. Pappas is so skilled and so completely devoted to excellence that he handles every aspect of his practice, personally crafting each crown, bridge and dental enhancement, rarely sending anything to a lab, as general dentists characteristically do. He is experienced at dealing with dental issues for everyone from babies to baby boomers and even seniors, cleaning teeth, fixing tooth problems and producing confident smiles with care. With all of the change going on in your life, isn’t it nice to know you can trust one person with all of your family’s dental needs?
Dr. Pappas is, admittedly, a perfectionist. He is devoted to doing things right and making patients feel comfortable–from initial consultation to dental chair to everyday lives. He is exceptionally educated and credentialed, including:
- Membership in the American Dental Association (ADA) and Minnesota Dental Association (MDA).
- Fellowship in the Academy of General Dentistry (AGD) – an honor earned by very few general dentists.
- Membership in the International Congress of Dental Implant Society.
- Graduation from the University of Minnesota Dental School (1987), with Residency completed in Denver (1988).
- Winner of the J. Raymond Gill Award during dental school, an award presented in fashioning crowns and bridges for patients.

In fact, Dr. Pappas is so committed to his patients that he has established an in-house dental lab, where he handcrafts his own crowns, bridgework, implant crowns and other items with incredible attention to detail. In doing so, he ensures superior quality and saves incalculable hours and hassles for his patients. Dr Pappas can often create and fit crowns in half the time and with half the appointments that patients are used to! These crowns are not to be confused with the single color porcelain blocks ground out in a couple of hours that lack enameled and clear zones for superior quality and perfect realistic appearance. In addition, Dr. Pappas uses only the highest noble metal gold and premium porcelain materials from Germany when manufacturing his crowns, guaranteeing life-like looks and a better fit, feel and performance. He gives patients nothing less than perfection!
