Get to know us

Dr. Grossmann was born and raised in St. Paul, MN. In 1973, he graduated from St. Olaf College, with a degree in Chemistry. He then attended the University of Minnesota Dental School, graduating in 1977.
During the early years of his dental career, Dr. Grossmann worked as an associate in a private practice and taught at the University of Minnesota Dental School on a part time basis. It was at the dental school where he met Dr. William Hartwick, which led to the purchase of our practice, St. Anthony Park Dental Care, in 1979.
Dr. Grossmann’s professional involvement has evolved over the years. He served as treasurer for the St. Paul District Dental Society and was a delegate for the Minnesota Dental Association. He held the position of secretary/treasure of the MDB, a subsidiary of the Minnesota Dental Association, and served on its board of directors for 15 years. He is currently a member of The St. Paul District Dental Society, The Minnesota Dental Association, The American Dental Association, and The Academy of General Dentistry.
Outside the realm of general dentistry, Dr. Grossmann has an interest in the areas of occlusion and sleep apnea. Subsequently, he is a member of The American Equilibration Society and The American Academy of Dental Sleep Medicine.

Deb (Registered Dental Hygienist)

I received my degree from Mankato State University, and have been practicing dental hygiene for 18 years.  I have a husband, two wonderful daughters, two challenging dogs, and lots of fish at home.  In my spare time, I volunteer at my church and at the girl’s school throughout the year.  I love to scrapbook, play volleyball, mountain bike, hike, camp, travel, and spend time with my family.  Life is good.


Cheryl (Registered Dental Hygienist)

I graduated from the University of Minnesota and have been with the practice since 1984.


Joanie (receptionist)

Joanie has been with the office since 1980.  She lives in the area with her husband.  They have two children and five grandchildren, ranging in age from 3-14.  She enjoys travel, reading, walking and being able to stay working on a part-time basis.



As the newest member of the team I have enjoyed getting to know the staff and patients.  I am married to my high school sweetheart and we have two grown children.  Living as empty nesters, we enjoy playing tennis, riding the Minnesota bike trails and traveling.  I hope to be a member of the Saint Anthony Park family for many years to come.
