Dr. Travis Wildenberg

Travis grew up in Superior, WI and attended college at the University of Wisconsin - Madison. After graduating with distinction in 3.5 years with a degree in Molecular Biology, he took time off to pursue two of his passions - downhill skiing and waterskiing. He spent the next two winters living in Big Sky, MT and Crested Butte, CO, and during the summers he worked as a waterski instructor and counselor at Camp Laurel in Readfield, Maine.

Dr. Wildenberg returned to his academic studies after a year and a half, obtaining his D.D.S. degree from Marquette University in Milwaukee, WI, followed by a General Practice Residency at the University of Utah - Salt Lake City. There he studied advanced techniques in periodontal surgery, oral surgery, endodontics, and implant placement and restoration.

Dr. Wildenberg is married. He and his wife, Sara, moved to the Twin Cities area when Sara was accepted into a surgical residency program at HCMC. Her medical training also took them to Honolulu, HI for one year where she completed a fellowship training program. While living on Oahu, Travis would fly over to Kauai each week to work in a dental office on that island. Travis and Sara have a very active house with three young children. 

Dr. Wildenberg is excited to bring his adventurous spirit to the Harbor Dental team! His practice philosophy has always been to treat each patient as he would a member of his own family. Compassion and quality are what he strives for.

When not at the office, Dr. Wildenberg can be found enjoying the lakes of Minnesota  (whether behind his boat on a waterski or in his canoe fishing in the Boundary Waters), cross-country or downhill skiing, hiking, camping, hunting, and introducing his son to all of the wonderful outdoor activities available to us here in Minnesota.
