Dr. Darcy was born in Fargo, North Dakota and raised throughout the world. Her father’s military career in the Navy took the family throughout the United States and overseas. Following graduation from a DODDS school in Sicily, Italy, she returned to her birth state for her undergraduate degree in speech language pathology and audiology from the University of North Dakota.
She then received her Doctor of Dental Surgery degree from the University of Minnesota School of Dentistry where she continued her dental education and completed her 2-year specialty training in Pediatric Dentistry and received a Master of Science degree. Following residency, Dr. Darcy and her husband, Dr. Carl, fulfilled their joint military obligation to the United States Air Force by serving as dentists overseas in Okinawa, Japan for three years, which is where they started their family.
Dr. Darcy and her husband Dr. Carl, are the busy parents of their two children, Saffron and Brody. Like every parent, they are busy year round keeping up with the kid’s activities. They enjoy swimming and surfing in the summer (which passes too quickly) and skiing in the winter.
Dr. Darcy was one of the first practitioners in Minnesota and Wisconsin to offer tongue and lip releases to infants and continues to support this practice by speaking at several clinics, hospitals and meetings over the years. This passion has expanded into more in depth understanding of tongue function, arch development and airway, which has led the practice into providing new supportive therapy options for patients that include myofunctional therapy and interceptive arch development treatments. Dr. Darcy is board certified by the American Board of Pediatric Dentistry and a member of the American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry. Dr. Darcy is credentialed at Children’s Hospitals and clinics of Minnesota, Laser Certified by the Academy of Laser Dentistry, and CPR/PALS Certified.
Dr. Darcy’s strives for each family to leave the office with a happy memory of their visit to the dentist and treats each child with the care and compassion as if they were her own. She has always loved working with children and is excited to teach kids and their parents how to care for themselves and learn the importance of not only oral health, but also their overall health. Her practice philosophy revolves around providing the best, most well rounded care for all children in a comfortable environment. Dr. Darcy understands her importance of establishing a dental home and habits that will affect her patients throughout their lives.
I was nervous about the "unknowns" of tongue tie, and why breastfeeding was so painful for me. Dr. Darcy and her amazing staff are warm, welcoming and professional from the start! I felt comfortable and informed the whole time. Dr.Darcy is knowledgeable, direct and incredibly kind. A great experience.
Today, I took all three of my kids here. My oldest I knew wouldn't have any issues, as he loves the dentist. My middle has had horrible experiences at the dentists and hates going, but they made him so comfortable that they were able to complete a full exam with X-rays! This is a huge accomplishments! My youngest is 2 and she did a full lap exam with the Dr without any issues! I cannot recommend this place enough.
Dr. Michelle is amazing with my son. He has autism and his first few visits were not very successful. However, they have gotten a little better with each appointment, thanks to the patience, kindness and flexibility shown by the team at Riverdale pediatric dentistry.
St Croix Kidds is the place to go to help kids feel good about the dentist. All of the staff are caring and responsive to questions or dental concerns. The dentists are thorough and positive. My kids look forward to their six-month check ups. The environment is collorful, fun and inviting. All-in-all a great experience.
The staff was friendly and the office is kid friendly. They were very good with both my kids. Happy with our experience and will be happy to call them our dentist.
I scheduled appointments for all 3 of my kids at the same time. We were in and out in about 20 minutes! The staff here is incredible! We recently moved 45 minutes away, but I continue to bring my children here. It is well worth the drive to know they are in a safe, friendly and efficient environment.
Love this place and they have an amazing team. The kids absolutely love the kid focused environment. They love all the wonderful ladies (especially Ms. Rachel) who are so gentle in their care for them. Dr. Beinlich has a great child like personality that really puts the kids at ease. You know you have found a great place when you tell the kids they have a dentist appointment and they get excited. All around this is a great place to trust with your little ones!
The staff here is amazing and super friendly. Dr. Tyler was amazing with my son today. Most patient office I’ve ever walked into. I am definitely pleased with our service today and can’t wait to go back.
I took my infant son for evaluation of a tongue tie. The atmosphere is so warm and welcoming over looking the St. Croix river. The staff is kind compassuonate and you can tell they really love what they do. They were excellent at explaining what they were evaluating, what the procedure was going to entail and making sure you were able to do the therapy at home after to ensure the best results.
Wow! Great staff, Amanda was amazing and helped my son feel at ease. She is very good at her job and obviously loves working with kids. Dr. Meghan was great and fixed my son's teeth, making sure he was comfortable the whole time. Will definitely recommend to my friends! Thanks for all your care and patience with my son and for making it a smooth process for us too!
Had a great day with my two boys at St.Croix Kidds. They were both very engaged in their appointments and the Assistants and Dr Darcy explained the procedures well.. I would Highly recommend this pediatric office. My boys are always happy to go even if it is to get a filling. Lots of distractions to keep their minds busy so they don't worry !
We just has our first appt here and WOW!!! Love the office and the staff is all so nice. The dentist we saw is spectacular!
Friendly staff, easy to make appointments especially in an emergency! The kids like that they can watch a movie while having their teeth worked on.
Today was my 3 year old son's 1st visit to the dentist. I was very impressed with how they interacted with my son and how they made it fun. He also like receiving a toy at the end. I will definitely recommend this dentist office to my friends and family. 😀
Friendly, caring and curteous staff. Never feel pressure to "do more". And we are in and out in a flash. Love this place! And so do my kids!
Great staff, great dentists! They are so patient with kids who are hesitant about their visits. There is also a nice play area for kids who are waiting.
St.Croix Kidds is amazing! The staff is very friendly, patient and make dentist visits fun! My boys (5yr and 3yrs) love going and always walk away with a smile!
