David Bates, DDS

Dr. David Bates is a second-generation dentist who was born and raised in the Minneapolis area. He attended dental school at the University of Southern California School of Dentistry. While in dental school, Dr. Bates worked extensively with children in underserved areas of California with the USC Mobile Clinic. He served as the clinic’s co-director, which ignited his passion for giving back to the community through dentistry. Upon graduation, he moved back to the Twin Cities to join his father’s dental practice in the Twin Cities’ suburbs.

After almost a decade spent working with his father, Dr. Bates decided to follow his vision of opening a distinctive dental practice right in the heart of the North Loop. As a proud resident of Minneapolis, Dr. Bates was drawn to the North Loop’s vibrant community atmosphere with an urban twist. As the proud owner of Loop Dental, Dr. Bates looks forward to meeting and serving the area for many years to come.

“The North Loop deserves a unique dental practice –
and I’m thrilled to provide my patients with the highest quality, individually-tailored dental care possible.”

Dr. Bates is an active member of the Twin Cities’ dental community and was named the 2017 recipient of the Minnesota Dental Association’s New Dentist Leadership Award, which recognized, “his willingness to go above and beyond the call of duty in ensuring the success of organized dentistry and never hesitating to serve when needed.” Dr. Bates is a member of the Minnesota Dental Association and the Saint Paul District Dental Society. He is also a past president of the Saint Paul District Dental Society Speakers’ Bureau, which he has been a member of since 2009. In addition, he is a member of Omicron Kappa Upsilon Dental Honor Society, has served on the 2013-2014 Minnesota Dental Association Constitution, Ethics and Bylaws Committee, and has been a delegate to the Minnesota Dental Association House of Delegates since 2013. He is also currently a member of the Minnesota Dental Association Resolution Review Committee. Dr. Bates was a member of the first graduating class of the Great Lakes Implant Institute and believes in staying ahead of the curve on the latest dental techniques and technology.

When away from the office, Dr. Bates enjoys spending time with his wife, their two young sons and their two dogs Sydney and Murphy. He is an avid traveler, skier, runner, and swimmer. He loves living in Minnesota, and he especially looks forward to the warm summer months!

Geoff Sudit,

Dr. Sudit attended The University of Texas for his undergraduate studies where he graduated summa cum laude with a Bachelor of Science degree in Psychology. He then attended the esteemed dental school program at the University of Minnesota. While there, he earned his DDS and was awarded the American Association of Orthodontists Senior Student Award upon graduation.

Dr. Sudit practiced general dentistry in the Minneapolis area before completing his post-graduate training in orthodontics, along with a Master’s Degree in Dentistry. After all of that schooling, Dr. Sudit returned to Austin, excited to learn more under the tutelage of Dr. Randy Kunik, one of the best practitioners of Invisalign in the industry.

After working with Dr. Randy Kunik for a few years and earning a reputation for quality care, exceptional work and a top-notch ability for connecting and relating to his patients, he is proud to be out on his own, doing what he loves, and returning to the city that he loves – Minneapolis.

Outside of orthodontics, Dr. Sudit is an avid sports fan, loves playing with his very spoiled dog Wally, and spending as much time with his young family as his busy life will allow.
