Dr. Koehnen began Uptown Dental's tradition of comfort and care in 1999. She attended the University of Minnesota, Morris for undergraduate studies. She went on to receive her Doctorate of Dental Surgery from the University of Minnesota in 1995. Dr. Koehnen has a commitment to continuing education and has completed courses in cosmetic dentistry, oral surgery and implant restoration.
Dr. Koehnen was raised in Shakopee and now resides in the Whittier neighborhood of Minneapolis. She enjoys volunteering locally and abroad. She travels to Honduras with the International Health Service of Minnesota every February and works in remote villages providing dental care to those who have no access to dentistry. She also volunteered locally at the Uptown Community Clinic since her graduation until its closure in 2014.
Dr. Koehnen loves the artwork in dentistry, even in a simple filling. She is passionate about dentistry and thinks the way to alleviate the common fear of dentists is explaining every step and showing patients everything she does and why she is doing them. Knowing what is going on in your mouth helps alleviate the anxiety many people have about going to the dentist. She knows no one loves getting their teeth worked on, but she'll try to make it fun, if that's possible!
Dr. Rohlfsen joined Uptown Dental in 2008. She has a B.A. in biology from St. Olaf College and is a 1998 graduate of the University of Minnesota Dental School. She enjoys getting to know her patients and is dedicated to keeping them informed and comfortable during their appointment. Dr. Rohlfsen pursues continuing education classes on a variety of subjects to keep her up-to-date on the latest trends in dentistry.
When Dr. Rohlfsen is out of the office, she spends her time as a clinical instructor at Argosy University in their Dental Hygiene Department. As an adjunct professor, she teaches General and Oral Pathology and Pain Management to dental hygiene students. She took her first dental mission trip to Vietnam in 2013 and looks
forward to another mission with her students to Jamaica. Outside of dentistry, Dr. Rohlfsen enjoys spending time with her husband and twin boys, cooking, reading, and traveling.
