Dr. Maria Axvig-Dwyer
Dr. Maria Axvig-Dwyer is an integrative dentist who is excited to continue her training in biological dentistry. She believes in a practice philosophy that seeks the safest, least toxic way to accomplish modern treatment while supporting whole-body wellness.
She is a member of the International Academy of Oral Medicine and Toxicology (IAOMT) and is SMART (safe mercury amalgam removal technique) certified. She enjoys integrating nutrition and supplements to support oral/total body health, and works closely with an established network of allied health professionals.
Dr. Axvig-Dwyer likes to provide patients with an esthetic alternative to braces using Invisalign, and finds great satisfaction when a patient finds a renewed sense of social confidence as an outcome of her treatment. She is also mindful of airway issues due to restrictive anatomy and seeks to provide orthodontic treatment that will not compromise the airway. She is passionate about diagnosing and treating obstructive sleep apnea in both adults and children and is happy to be expanding her services in dental sleep medicine.
Dr. Axvig-Dwyer graduated from the University of Minnesota School of Dentistry and joined her father’s growing practice, where she brings fresh enthusiasm and knowledge of the latest dental trends to compliment the practice. Outside of the office, Dr. Dwyer loves spending time with her husband and three active kids, and can often be found at the skating rink watching her hockey player or figure skaters. An avid supporter of humanitarian efforts to provide dentistry and opportunity to underdeveloped countries, she enjoys traveling with her family to Haiti where they are working to build a faith-based school, soccer academy, church, and dental/medical clinic in the rural community of Verrettes, Haiti.
