about us

Tori-Thuy Conrad is originally from Hue, Vietnam. She and her family came to America for a better future and a chance at freedom in 1980. Growing up with the Vietnamese name Thuy (Twee), Dr. Conrad's siblings gave her the nicknames "TWEETY" and "BIRD". While she didn't care much for those names then, she has grown to love it, leading her to naming her practice after it.

Dr. Conrad attended Coe College in Cedar Rapids, Iowa where she received her Bachelor of Arts Degree in Chemistry. She then moved to Minneapolis where she studied to be a dental hygienist prior to entering dental school. Dr. Conrad earned her DDS degree at the University of Minnesota. She then pursued her passion to serving children by completing a two-year residency in Pediatric Dentistry also at the University of Minnesota. Throughout her educational endeavors, Dr. Conrad participated in various community service and leadership opportunities. She was awarded the American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry Award, School of Dentistry Leadership & Professionalism Scholarship, Order of Omega Leadership & Academic Award, Phi Sigma Theta Honor Society, and Excellent Patient Relations Award.

Dr. Conrad is a Diplomate of the American Board of Pediatric Dentistry and is Board Certified. Dr. Conrad is also a member of the American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry (AAPD), American Dental Association (ADA), Minnesota Dental Association (MDA), and the Minnesota Association of Pediatric Dentistry (MAPD).

Dr. Conrad is a member of the medical staff at Children's Hospitals and Clinics of Minnesota where she is able to provide comprehensive dental treatment with the use of general anesthesia in a hospital setting. Dr. Conrad is certified through the International Center for Laser Education and utilizes the newest technologies to integrate and facilitate successful feeding/nursing in infants and young children.

Outside of work, Dr. Conrad enjoys cooking with her husband Rob and spending time with their three children, Raegan, Riley, and Griffin. She owes her success to her wonderful husband, children, and family. She also loves spending most of her days outdoors when she's not at the Bird House.

Special Services:

We offer several sedation options for children who are apprehensive. These highly effective methods can be administered in an oral form or an inhalation form using nitrous oxide/oxygen (N20-02) (Laughing gas).

It is important that children remain calm and minimize movement during dental treatment to prevent injury to themselves and dental staff in order to receive high quality dental care. For children who are afraid, uncooperative, or too young to understand dental treatment, nitrous oxide/oxygen for analgesia may be very beneficial in helping the child relax.

At times, nitrous oxide sedation may not be sufficient to offset the level of anxiety of the child, as sedation with oral medication is a safe alternative to help the child become more relaxed.

We do not use any form of physical restraint unless needed under urgent situations (dental extractions or injuries sustained secondary to facial trauma). Our main goal is to always keep our patients comfortable in order to reinforce a positive experience.
