Dr. Ebose Okoruwa, he goes by Ebo (A-bow) for short, was born in Cedar Rapids, Iowa and grew up in Council Bluffs, Iowa and Omaha, Nebraska. His parents migrated from Nigeria to Iowa because his mother started her career as a MD pediatrician there. His mother is known around town as Dr. O and she is very involved in the community. Dr. Ebo played football and ran track at his high school, Omaha Creighton Preparatory School, before graduating in 2010.
Dr. Ebo received his undergraduate degree in biochemistry at the University of Iowa, and stayed in Iowa City to complete his dental school education at the University of Iowa College of Dentistry and Clinics. In dental school he participated in research and was the Vice President of the Pediatric Dentistry club. Every year in dental school he participated in the Iowa Mission of Mercy, where they gave away millions of dollars in free dental care to the public. Also, he volunteered to work at a free dental clinic in Iowa City that provided treatment for the less fortunate in the area. He graduated dental school with distinction, a recognition of his academic achievements while in dental school. Upon graduation from dental school, Dr. Ebo moved up to Minneapolis to complete his residency in specialty training in Pediatric Dentistry at the University of Minnesota. However, in his heart he will always be a Hawkeye.
After 10 years straight of going to schooling, Dr. Ebo is excited to finally set down roots in the Twin Cities. Outside of the clinic, you can find him biking around the cities, going on hikes, and watching sports.
Dr. Ebo is trained in pediatric advanced life support and basic life support. During residency, he worked in the research lab of Dr. Robert Jones where he investigated how different bacterial strains may have a role in a cavity progressing but are not affected by routine prevention techniques commonly prescribed. Dr. Ebo is a member of the American Board of Pediatric Dentistry, the American Dental Association, and the Minnesota Academy of Pediatric Dentistry.
Dr. Ebo is a firm believer in prevention and trying to make an individualized plan for each patient that works for the goals of both patient and provider. When caring for children, he wants to make sure that each child feels like they are heard and have a positive experience. He wants to prevent children from developing dental phobias due to bad childhood experiences, which can lead to a lifetime of poor oral health. Also, that every day is another opportunity to learn something new.
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!
