COVID-19 UPDATE     

March 24th, 2020

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic and recommendations from the CDC,  Minnesota Dental Association, and Governor Walz's Executive Order 20-01, our office will suspend all nonessential/non-urgent care until at least April 15th or until the peacetime emergency is rescinded.  During this time, patients of record will be seen for limited dental emergencies by appointment only. To be in compliance, if you have a scheduled appointment leading up to and including April 15th, WE HAVE CANCELED IT. Once we are allowed to provide regular dental services, we will contact you to resume your dental care.

If you have traveled to/from an infected area or experience any of these symptoms (fever, cough, and/or shortness of breath), please contact our office to reschedule your appointment.  Once you are cleared of a fever and symptoms for at least one week without the aid of medications (tylenol, ibuprofen, NSAIDS) or have no longer tested positive for COVID-19,  you may be seen as a patient. Periodically check our web page for further updates.  

We apologize for this inconvenience and hope for your safety and wellbeing during this challenging time. 

Welcome to Our Practice

Welcome to Tomhave Dental Associates, Your Dentist in Cloquet, Minnesota

Welcome to our webpage!  Whether you are an existing patient, a new patient, or someone looking for an answer to a dental question, we hope you find this site both helpful and interesting.  We are a third generation family dental practice.  Our Grandfather, “Tom” Tomhave, started this practice in Cloquet in 1926, and other than a brief interruption during which he served in World War II, this practice has been steadily growing and improving ever since.  Our dad, Jack, practiced dentistry from 1953 to 1995,  Jim began in 1985, and Steve in 1993.  We are proud of this legacy and the trust our patients place in us.  Our goal is to serve as your dentist for a lifetime, we have many patients in their 80’s and 90’s whose only dentist has been a Tomhave.  This gives us a unique perspective and passion for our patients and their dental health.  We provide excellent care while also understanding the emotional and financial burdens that can sometimes accompany dentistry.  Despite our long history we strive to have the most current and relevant knowledge, skills and technology available.

 As proud as we are of our family tradition and history, we are equally proud of the people we are fortunate enough to share our workday with.  We think you will find our staff exceptional!  They are all compassionate, engaged and fun people, who go well beyond their duties to ensure the comfort of our patients.  We know you will enjoy your experiences with them.

Our services include:

  • General Dentistry
  • Same day Crowns
  • Preventive Care
  • Pediatric Dentistry
  • Periodontal Exams
  • Cosmetic Dentistry

Should you ever need additional information about our practice, we are always available to answer your questions. Let us care for your entire family! We look forward to meeting you.

    I love what I do.  It may sound strange, but I have so much fun as a dentist, and I find it incredibly rewarding.  We have the great fortune of wonderful patients and staff with whom we can laugh, and we do have a lot of laughter, and with whom we can share life stories and who have become close friends.

    When I am not at work, I most enjoy time spent with family: my wife Jennie, two sons, Ben and Peter, and our Australian Shepherd, Tika.  We treasure our time in the outdoors, whether it be at our cabin in the summer, canoe trips up North, or day hikes on the Superior Hiking Trail.  In the winter we still hike, but also get out skiing and play the occasional family game of hockey.  Tennis is a sport I have participated in my entire life and I have been lucky enough to have been involved in helping coach the boy’s high school tennis team.  With our youngest son graduating we are looking forward to exploring new opportunities while finding ways to stay close to our boys.
