Dr. Jackie was born and raised in Sugar Land, Texas. Her parents immigrated to the US from Taiwan. Growing up, Dr. Jackie always enjoyed creative pursuits and had a fascination for bugs (she could do without mosquitoes though!)
Dr. Jackie received her Bachelor of Science in Biology at the University of Texas and then moved to Philadelphia where she received her Doctor of Medicine in Dentistry from the University of Pennsylvania School of Dental Medicine. While in dental school, Dr. Jackie earned an Honors in Community Health, performing dental service in local elementary schools and free clinics around Philadelphia. After graduating from dental school, Dr. Jackie moved to Indianapolis to complete a two-year university and hospital based pediatric dental residency at Indiana University / Riley Children’s Hospital, where she was a Fellow in the Leadership Education in Neurodevelopmental Disabilities program.
Dr. Jackie has also lived in Michigan and Pittsburgh, but she hasn’t stopped dreaming of the Twin Cities and is excited to finally call Minneapolis home. In her free time, Dr. Jackie enjoys spending time in the great outdoors with her husband, painting, crafting, exploring all different types of visual art and finding delicious restaurants around the Cities.
During residency, Dr. Jackie was awarded her certificate and Master of Science Degree in Pediatric Dentistry for her research into the safety of portable X-ray devices. Dr. Jackie is board certified by the American Board of Pediatric Dentistry.
Dr. Jackie believes that dental health outcomes relate strongly to our early experiences in a dental setting and that working together to create a positive atmosphere can make all the difference. Dr. Jackie aims to meet each child where they are, with the goal of tailoring her approach for each child’s unique needs. She believes dental visits can be fun and joyful, and hopes to equip kids and families with the tools they need to build healthy smiles!
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!
Our first experience at this office fantastic! He let them do everything! They were so patient and explained everything before they did it!! It was my Littles first appointment at the dentist and she loved every minute!! Great experience for all today!!
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 !
Amazing dentist office for kids! All the staff were so friendly and engaged with my son. The office decor and all the staff's positive happiness was so wonderfully kid-centered. They were patient and caring, even when he was hesitant to open for the x-rays. Dr. Morgan was amazing with my son but also to me, explaining things clearly. I didn't feel rushed or pressured at all. I'm so glad we switched to New Richmond Kidds!
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!
The kids and I love the staff here. They have my kids comfortable in going to the dentist and they are very clear before and after what is being done or needs to be done. Thank you all for a wonderful job!
My toddler actually likes going to the dentist! I don't know if it's the way they talk to him, how the office is sooo kid friendly (movies, horse saddle, etc), or the fact he knows he gets a brand new toothbrush and toy to pick himself! They're great!
