Lake Minnetonka Dental, a premier dental practice in Wayzata, MN is owned and operated by Dr. Bryan Laskin. Dr. Laskin and his dental practice are paving the way for other dental practices by using OperaDDS, a software he created. This software has been adopted by many other dental offices nationwide and helps dentists dramatically improve their in-office communication.

Dr. Laskin, a graduate of the University of Wisconsin-Madison and the University of Minnesota School of Dentistry, founded Lake Minnetonka Dental in 2001. Since then, his passion for technology and innovation has enabled him to grow his highly successful dental practice in Minnesota from one dentist to now having five practicing dentists.

While working at his practice in Wayzata, MN, Dr. Laskin realized that he needed a more effective way to communicate with his staff and patients. To tackle the problems that dental practices face every day, OperaDDS was born and continues to evolve. OperaDDS is a revolutionary dental communication software that includes three amazing offerings. Recare, one of the offerings was created to help keep in touch with and build relationships with patients. It offers two-way text messaging, so that dental offices can contact their patients with ease and with more efficiency.

Pager, an additional part of OperaDDS is an essential tool for improving inter-office communications. Not only does it include instant office messaging and one-touch paging, but it allows the office staff to create custom checklists and to send pertinent information to the dentist right before he enters the exam room. OperaDDS also includes an important messaging system called Chorus, which is the optimal way to collaborate with labs and other partners securely. It allows dental practices to send cases and emails to their partners without the worry of poor security. Dr. Laskin’s creation, OperaDDS, is an efficient and dynamic tool to help streamline dental practices.

Dr. Laskin is a father of two, a snowboarding and guitar enthusiast, and a frequent volunteer at Donated Dental Services, giving dentistry free of charge to the disabled, elderly or medically compromised. As he continues to help patients gain confidence in their smiles and improve the way modern dentistry is performed, Dr. Laskin’s mission to help others with dentistry has been a fulfilling experience.

Friends and colleagues of Dr. Laskin describe him as a dentist, innovator and entrepreneur. A trailblazer in his field, he juggles running his successful dental practice while continuing to expand and innovate his rapidly growing dental technology company. With a deep passion for dentistry, he wants to leave a lasting mark on the dental industry.
