    In Loving Memory:

   Dwight Tschetter DDS

Dr. Tschetter grew up in South Dakota. He graduated from Loyola Dental School in Chicago, IL. He started Tooth by the Lake in 1982 as a mercury-free practice. He loved learning and took  many hours of continuing education every year.  On weekends his hobby was running a small resort on Duluth's North Shore. His passion was seeing people's health restored through less toxic, health centered dentistry.  On June 14, 2016 Dr. Tschetter passed away from an unrecoverable stroke.  He will be deeply missed by us here at Tooth by the Lake and by thousands of patients whose lives he touched in so many ways!
