Dr. Jim Tomhave

Dentist

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.


 

Dr. Steve Tomhave

Dentist

I have always been interested in science, technology, and the arts. Weave these pursuits together with the enjoyment of improving a person’s smile, comfort, and wellbeing, and then you have what dentistry means to me. I feel privileged to carry on this tradition alongside my brother. Having graduated from St Olaf College with a degree in chemistry, I then received my doctorate in dental surgery from the University of Minnesota in 1993. Cloquet is my hometown and I certainly appreciate the region with all the outdoor activities it provides. I am active in Nordic skiing, road/mountain biking, canoe trips, hiking/backpacking, tennis, and traveling. I especially like the arts and music and play trumpet in the Cloquet Community Band and a blues/jazz band. My wife and I especially enjoy spending family time together with our two sons who share similar interests. I enjoy getting to know people and hope I’ll have the opportunity to get to know you too while serving your dental needs in whichever direction that takes you.
