With excitement, joy, and also a tinge of sadness, I have decided that I will be retiring in 2018. This will be a time of transition for me, as I plan to continue seeing patients for approximately 6-9 months into next year.
As the relationships that I have built with my patients are so cherished, I am committed to making this transition the best for you and your dental health. After completing an extensive search, the team and I are thrilled about the person we have chosen to care for you.
Dr. Paul Schaus graduated from the University of Minnesota School of Dentistry and has 11 years of experience in the field. I have the utmost confidence you will find him caring, personable, and professionally excellent. Dr. Paul and I share a philosophy regarding the importance of good listening, mutual respect, individualized attention, and excellent technical dental care. Over the next year, I will gradually cut back on hours as we collaboratively transition to his leadership.
This has not been an easy decision, as I truly value the close relationships that have grown over the many years of my practice. However, I believe the time is right for me to step away, while my wife Janet and I enjoy good health. My granddaughter (and her expected sibling) is pulling at my heart, and I know there are extra rounds of golf, travels, teaching and volunteering opportunities awaiting me. I have had the unique privilege of caring for two, three, and sometimes even four generations of your families. I value your trust, loyalty, support, and heartfelt friendship. It has been a joy to serve you and to give you my best. I thank you from the bottom of my heart. I have been so blessed!
I'm excited to meet all of you and to work alongside Dr. Buzz. I'm looking forward to learning from the best and honored to be joining such a wonderful team!
Our mission is to help people get healthier by giving them individualized attention, sensitive and empathetic listening, and high quality dentistry. Our team is friendly, hard working, and a group of caring individuals who are dedicated to improving your health and encouraging excellent and appropriate health choices.
We believe that people appreciate being listened to, being treated with sensitivity, caring, and respect, and having a trusting relationship with their dentist and the entire team.
You want a beautiful smile and you want it to be your own. Many people have seen (or had) cosmetic dental work that looks unnatural, and know that is not what they want. Cosmetic dentistry can mimic the beauty of natural teeth, if done with the right care and knowledge.
Our practice is relationship-based. Dr. Raymond and Dr. Schaus have more success when they take the time to understand who each patient is and what they want.
Your goals may be health, beauty, strength, value, or longevity. We want to know your goals and circumstances in order to plan for you the most appropriate options. By taking the time to learn about you and your concerns, we hope to inform, and educate you about the possibilities. We encourage you to actively participate in the planning. If you are feeling anxious about dental visits, Dr. Raymond can take the fear out of dentistry.
If you are looking for high-quality dentistry in St. Paul, Minnesota, or the Golden Valley area, we would love to meet you. We do serve patients throughout Hennepin County and beyond. An initial consultation is the perfect chance to get to know us, and it is free. Please contact us today to schedule a meeting with Dr. Buzz Raymond, or Dr. Paul Schaus.
