As a fifth grader growing up in Duluth, Jonathan Siverson became enraptured with science. After doing a school report on periodontal disease, he decided he wanted to devote the rest of his life to becoming a dentist. He received a bachelor’s degree in Chemistry from Saint John’s University (MN) and had a research project published in the Journal of Organometallic Chemistry. He completed dental school at the University of Minnesota in 2007, and has been in the business of smiles in the north metro area ever since.
Dr. Siverson’s wife grew up in Forest Lake, and together they built a home in Scandia in 2009 and have absolutely loved living in the area. They have three fun and goofy kids who keep them very busy! You’ll often see the Siverson family at one of the many local lakes, golf courses and baseball fields, at the YMCA and Faith Lutheran Church, and shredding on the ski slopes.
Dr. Siverson is overjoyed to be practicing in the Forest Lake Community and bringing an artistic component to dentistry. He finds tremendous satisfaction in restoring teeth both in beauty and function, and can’t wait to go above and beyond to give you the smile of your dreams!
At Forest Lake Smiles, we see all our patients as family, but it all starts with one incredible team. We're united in our mission to serve our patients every day, and to treat them with the utmost respect and compassion.
