Combining Intrigue with Dedication

Get To Know Dr. Ami

Dr. Ami Inoue grew up in Mankato, Minnesota as the youngest sibling in her family. Her intrigue for the world of dentistry first began as a child when receiving extra care for her baby teeth. Unlike other children, she truly enjoyed her visits to the dentist. She became so fascinated by older kids getting braces that she began fashioning her own retainers out of fruit roll ups and paper clips. To this day, Dr. Ami’s passion for orthodontics, love for art, and natural curiosity have never waned.

Dr. Ami completed her undergraduate education at Creighton University in Omaha, later taking a year off to teach English in Japan. She returned to Creighton University School of Dentistry and went on to Marquette University in Milwaukee for her orthodontic residency.

As a part of her residency program, Dr. Ami received more than two years of additional education and training, specifically focused on orthodontics and dentofacial orthopedics. This training means Dr. Ami is an expert in the field of moving teeth, and can offer many different types of treatment for her patients.

When she’s not in the office, Dr. Ami is spending time with her family — laughing with her two daughters — dining out and traveling with her husband. She is aIso a dog lover, former figure skater, and enjoys gardening and learning about new flowers and plants.

Welcome to the Hive

What to Expect at Your First Visit

When you first arrive at our office, you’ll be greeted by a member of our friendly and professional team. You’ll then be able to sit back and relax before your appointment begins and enjoy the modern and calming ambiance.

As part of your initial consultation, we will take digital images of your mouth to get a complete look at your oral health. You'll meet with the doctor for an initial exam and complimentary consultation. We spend the extra time to address your concerns and smile goals, and to discuss the state of your dental health with you before outlining a unique treatment plan tailored to your needs.

At the end of the appointment, we'll answer any insurance questions you may have and provide estimates and information about what to expect from your orthodontic treatment.
