DentistAdam Podratz, D.D.S.

I grew up in Granite Falls, Minnesota, and earned my dental degree from the University of Minnesota in 2001. While at dental school I met my wife, Alana, who was born and raised here in South Minneapolis. I spent the next 10 years in private dental practice, first in Wisconsin and then in Colorado. Eventually we started a family and decided it was time to move back to Minneapolis. I acquired this practice from Dr. Brandenburg in 2014. I have truly enjoyed treating patients of all ages, and sometimes many generations of the same family, in the neighborhood that I call home.

We are a friendly, low-key, family dental practice. We strive to treat our patients as unique individuals, and to help with any dental concerns they may have in an efficient and comforting manner. I am a firm believer in using prevention mixed with appropriate, conservative treatments to help preserve healthy tooth structure for a lifetime.

When not in the office, I can most likely be seen shuttling my two kids around to various activities or running my dog Astro around Lake Nokomis. Other hobbies include tennis, camping, and spending time at the family cabin.
