Meet Paul Greenawalt, DDS

Dr. Greenawalt is a board-certified oral surgeon who enjoys providing a superior level of care for patients and making their experiences as positive and as beneficial as possible.

About Dr. Paul Greenawalt

Dr. Paul Greenawalt is from Twin Cities, Minnesota. He became an oral surgeon because he enjoys taking care of people and working with his hands. Oral surgery poses challenges that he can overcome through a combination of precision and technical expertise. 

While serving active duty in the Navy, Dr. Greenawalt also worked at this practice for almost a year. After he left the Navy, he joined this practice as an associate and then became a full-time partner. When considering a practice to join, Dr. Greenawalt looked for a group practice with a strong focus on implant dentistry. He wanted to work alongside specialists interested in continuing education, both to expand upon their knowledge and to share information through lectures and presentations. Dr. Greenawalt approaches each day with enthusiasm and positivity because he loves what he does. 

Dr. Greenawalt can almost always find a way to relate to patients and their families on a personal level. Helping patients feel like they’re a person, not just a case, reduces anxiety and nervousness. Pre and post-operative instructions are tailored to every patient to coordinate with their lifestyle and overall health needs. He finds it rewarding to take something that people might be afraid of or avoid, and turn it into a worthwhile and positive experience that is better than they expected.

He attended a shared residency program at the Naval Station Great Lakes, the University of Chicago, and the Medical College of Wisconsin.
