Deepak Kademani, DMD MD FACS

CEO Minnesota Oral and Facial Surgery

When I started Minnesota Oral and Facial Surgery in 2014, I had no idea the amazing journey that would begin! With consolidating an existing successful oral surgery practice into my hospital based surgery practice, we quickly established a regional center of excellence for all aspects of oral and maxillofacial surgery. A wonderful, dedicated team works tirelessly behind the scenes to ensure all our patients needs are met. It gives me great pleasure to introduce two new physicans/surgeons to our practice Dr Scott Claiborne DDS MD and Dr Carrie Hill MD.
We are tremendously grateful for our patients and referral base who entrust us with the care of their patients.
We continue to have a busy hospital based surgical practice. We perform all aspects of maxillofacial and head and neck surgery from TMJ, orthognathic, facial trauma, and benign/malignant pathology and reconstructive surgery.
In 2020, I founded the Head and Neck Cancer Foundation, dedicated to education, awareness, research, and advocacy to this special patient population. In collaboration with several organizations, such as the MDA and other stakeholders, we are working towards creating meaningful change and improving outcomes with earlier diagnosis. We had our first annual Head & Neck cancer walk with over 100 participants including patients, families and providers.
As always, professional leadership, research and education remain a high priority in my practice. Dr. Scott Claiborne and I are starting a new educational campaign through the Spears Study Club. This will provide monthly learning opportunities for our colleagues and staff.

 Dr.Hill, Dermatology, brings a new perspective and service to our clinic and patients. I was nominated for MN Monthly Top Doctor and Top Dentist recognition for the tenth year in a row…thank you. We remain dedicated to creating the highest level of surgical care. I am confident that our team will exceed your expectations!


  • They do an excellent job. Everyone is so kind ,compassionate and caring. Would definitely recommend them!!!

  • Dr K and the incredible NP Julie are above and beyond the most compassionate, grounded, kind and incredible team!! I have been seeing them over the past two years dealing w oral cancer and I could never imagine anyone else in the world taking care of me. They’re not only the best in their field by a mile, they personalize my care and make me and my husband feel entirely like we’re part of their family. I trust them implicitly and can’t sing their praises high enough!!

  • Older reviews are obsolete as the previous Dr sold to Dr K. Dr K and Kristy were the model of professionalism. They weren't rushed and took the time to thoroughly explain all options and answer all question for the tooth extraction that I was very sad about. They had the best bedside manner. I'll be going back to them if I need any work in the future.

  • Anyone would be lucky to be under the care of Dr. Kademani. He is a top expert in his field and has written the textbooks from which other doctors learn their specialty. He is a world famous author, lecturer, and consultant for oral surgery. I have seen him for eight years and am always amazed at his compassion, expertise, and care of his patients.

  • I've been seeing Dr Kademani for 6 years. Always very professional and I place complete trust in him.

Staff Testimonial

I was born and raised in Sauk Rapids, Minnesota and am proud to call Sartell my home. I obtained my bachelors of science degree in nursing from the College of St. Benedicts. While exploring career options in nursing, I found tremendous joy and fulfillment working in oral surgery. For over 20 years now, I have devoted my career to oral surgery and I continue to enjoy the daily challenges. I always smile when a nervous patient acknowledges that “it wasn’t so bad” – I consider that a win! I enjoy the surgical procedures, fast pace, and technology that comes with a career in oral surgery. I also love working closely with the surgeons who keep me on my toes! It amazes me how much variety there is each day in oral surgery. I’ve enjoyed this career so much that I now have two children who are nurses – and one who works alongside me in our clinic! I am mom to three, stepmom to three, and (soon to be) grandma to three beautiful babies. In my free time, I love my flower garden and kayaking on the lake. I’ve been to Fiji X times and am always looking for my next road trip or beach vacation. I am tremendously proud of my career in oral surgery and I hope my patients feel a sense of comfort in the care I provide.
