Dr. Mitchell Beinlich

Background and Education

Dr. Mitch was born in Minnesota, grew up in Hudson, Wisconsin, and now calls Minneapolis home. He considers himself a true “Minnesconsinite.”  During his time in Hudson, he spent time with his friends playing hockey and football, which he played in college as a freshman, but decided to focus his time and energy on his schoolwork.

Dr. Mitch attended the University of Wisconsin, La Crosse where he received his Bachelor of Science in Biology with an emphasis on biomedical and a chemistry minor. While in college, Dr. Mitch went on a dental mission trip with students and faculty from Marquette University School of Dentistry to continue efforts to provide access to dental care for the people of Antigua and its neighboring towns. He received his Doctorate of Dental Surgery at Marquette University School of Dentistry, where he met his wife,  Dr. Madeline Beinlich, a general dentist in the Twin Cities area. Dr. Mitch also participated in research on Early and Severe Early Childhood Caries, which was published in the Journal of Pediatric Dentistry in 2019. 

After graduating from Dental school, Dr. Mitch worked at Community Dental Care in Maplewood, MN while applying for pediatric residencies. In January of 2021, he matched to Oregon Health and Science University in Portland, Oregon, where he and his wife moved right after their wedding in June of 2021. They spent two wonderful years in the pacific northwest before returning home to be closer to family.

When not in the clinic, you can probably find Dr. Mitch looking at sneakers, learning more about coffee, watching sports, hanging with his family, or a combination of all of the above. He loves to spend time in northern Wisconsin with his family at their cabin, or “camp” as they call it. Oh yea, he’s also Dr. Tyler’s brother.

Additional Training

Dr. Mitch is trained in basic life support/CPR and pediatric advanced life support. His pre-doctoral research dealt with early and severe childhood caries. In residency, he focused his research on sugar substitutes, particularly the rare sugar allulose, which is a natural sugar found in foods like wheat or raisins, that only contributes a fraction of the calories that regular sugar does while maintaining most of the sweetness. Dr. Mitch is eligible to take the American Board of Pediatric Dentistry oral examination in the fall of 2024.

Practice Philosophy

Dr. Mitch aims to create great dental patients through positive experiences and prevention of cavities. The most important thing for him while seeing patients is that kids are safe and comfortable. Dr. Mitch doesn’t like to hear when people say they “hate the dentist” and believes that this sentiment typically comes from a poor experience while younger, so his goal is to help create more patients who love the dentist!
