Dr. Steve Bakke

Dr. Bakke was born and raised just down the road in Scandia, MN, and is proud to say that he’s called this area home for almost his entire life. He went to the University of Minnesota, Duluth for his undergraduate degree, finishing up at the University of Minnesota, Twin Cities. Afterwards, he took a few years off from school before heading to the University of Minnesota School of Dentistry for his Doctorate of Dental Science. That was close to 20 years ago, and he’s been practicing dentistry ever since.

When he’s not in the office, he enjoys spending time with his family, and, more than anything, being outdoors. Whether it’s camping, canoeing, hunting, or fishing, Dr. Bakke would rather be out in nature than anywhere else, (aside from Bayview Dental of course!).

Same-Day Crowns

Our office is equipped with the latest in dental crown technology, including our very own CEREC system. This system enables us to create a detailed image of your smile and then create a custom crown made of durable ceramic that is virtually indistinguishable from a natural tooth. Perhaps the biggest benefit to the CEREC system is its speed. With traditional crowns, there is usually a waiting period of several weeks between your initial visit and receiving your crown. Because we design and construct our crowns in-house, you’ll walk out of our office on the same day as your visit with a beautiful and functional smile.

Digital X-rays

We utilize the latest in intraoral and extraoral radiograph technology to create super-detailed images of what’s going on beneath the surface of your smile, all while exposing you to a minimal amount of radiation. Digital x-rays are safe, and effective, and help us to give you the exceptional dental care that you deserve.
