Rochester Dental Office Adds New Associate Dentist

ROCHESTER, MN--(Marketwired - July 14, 2015) - A Rochester dental office has welcomed a new associate dentist skilled in all aspects of dentistry.

Dr. Rob Vander Broek, a Michigan native, will officially join the staff at Northwest Dental Group on July 25. He practices full-scope general dentistry and has clinical interests treating patients of all ages and special medical needs. He has published nine scientific articles on head and neck cancer pathogenesis, prevention and treatment, and he has also passed the Fellowship examination for the Academy of General Dentistry.

“Dr. Vander Broek brings a new perspective to our practice and has a gentle and professional way with his patients,” said Dr. Steven Sperling, who operates Northwest Dental Group. “With the addition of another staff member, Northwest Dental Group gains more experience and knowledge, which will translate into better care for the patient.”

Dr. Vander Broek earned both his Bachelor of Science and Doctor of Dental Surgery degrees from the University of Michigan. He then completed a one-year general practice residency at Carolinas Medical Center, as well as one-year fellowships at the National Institutes of Health and University of Michigan Medical School.

He stays active in continuing education courses and maintains additional memberships in the American Dental Association and Minnesota Dental Association.

“I’m happy to have the opportunity to serve the greater Rochester community and look forward to building enduring relationships with the patients at Northwest Dental Group,” Dr. Vander Broek said.

Northwest Dental Group provides comprehensive services in general dentistry, cosmetic dentistry, tooth extractions, Invisalign, sleep apnea treatment, sports dentistry, root canals and dental implants. The talented staff at Northwest Dental Group can replace missing teeth with dental implants or use implants to provide stability to dentures.

Northwest Dental Group is a unique Rochester dental practice as it offers several forms of sedation. The practice uses sedation techniques like oral conscious sedation and IV sedation for fearful patients or for patients who need extensive dental work.

Dr. Sperling holds an undergraduate degree from St. Olaf College in Northfield and earned his dental degree from the University of Minnesota School of Dentistry. He holds a Mastership from the Academy of General Dentistry and Fellowship with the International Congress of Oral Implantologists. Dr. Sperling has completed thousands of hours in continuing education, which includes live training and in-office training. Dr. Sperling is also a governor-appointed member of the Minnesota Board of Dentistry and is the co-author of an Amazon best-selling book, “Change Agents”.

Northwest Dental Group serves as a location for the annual Dentistry From The Heart event, a program aimed at providing a free day of dentistry to local residents who do not have access to dental insurance or regular dental care. Staff members also volunteer with The Salvation Army Good Samaritan Clinic in Rochester and Mission of Mercy.
