About Us

Dr. Schafhauser

Dr. Michael Schafhauser was born in Fort Worth, Texas and raised in Roseville, Minnesota. A Minnesota boy through and through, he attended the University of Minnesota where he earned his B.A. in Psychology in 1975. He continued his education and earned his D.D.S. from the University of Minnesota School of Dentistry in 1979. He has been practicing dentistry in the heart of St. Paul ever since.  

In his free time, he enjoys spending time with his wife, Susan, and their three daughters- Carrie, Emily and Alison. Skiing, fishing and woodworking are a few of his hobbies, and getting away for a weekend at his Cabin in northwestern Wisconsin is always a welcome respite for him.

Dr. Neu

Dr. Natalie Neu is a Marquette University graduate with over 15 years of experience. She prides herself in providing a calming and stress-free dental experience for her patients. Dr. Neu meets her patients where they are and then partners with them to meet their oral health goals.
In her free time, Dr. Neu enjoys spending time with family and friends, walking her dog, Lucy, and trying new and interesting cuisine.

Professional Organizations​

Outside of his community work, Dr. Schafhauser is active in numerous professional dental organizations aimed at continuing his education and enhancing the level of care he provides.  He is a former President and current member of the Minnesota Dental Association (MDA), a current member of the American Dental Association (ADA), an active member of the St. Paul District Dental Society (SPDDS) and a clinical instructor at the University of Minnesota.  He is also a member of the Pierre Fauchard Academy, an Inductee into the American College of Dentists and the College of Dentistry International. 

Giving Back

Dr. Schafhauser strongly believes in the importance of giving back to the community. He participates in the national Donated Dental Service program, offering free dental work for qualifying patients with extenuating circumstances.

And, if need be, patients can be seen by him at St. John’s Hospital, where he is a dentist on staff.
