About Capitol Dental

We Have Over 40 Years Of Experience in Dental Care Services

Capitol Dental Center was founded by Dr. Schafhauser in 1979 immediately after graduating from the University of Minnesota School of Dentistry. The practice was first located in the Lowry Medical Arts and moved to the corner of 6th and Wabasha shortly after.  Several practices joined Dr. Schafhauser over the years. The practice relocated to Town Square in 2022. Over the years, Dr. Schafhauser continued to be an active participant in continuing education, both locally and nationally. Contact us today to make Capitol Dental your trusted St. Paul dentist.

    Dr. Mike is the absolute best. I had a serious fear of dentists before going to him due to a previous bad experience with someone else. Thanks to him I no longer have that fear and I even look forward to my visits. Every member of his staff is understanding, patient and kind. As a customer you truly feel valued and respected. I won’t go anywhere else besides Capitol Dental.
