James Gunelson, DDS

Dr. James Gunelson graduated from University of Minnesota School of Dentistry. Since then he has devoted much of his continuing education to implant dentistry and sedation. He has completed over 500 hours of continuing education courses, completing the Advanced Dental Implant Institute’s Maxicourse Program and his residency in Implant Dentistry. During that time, he also gained the expertise and credentials to offer conscious sedation for his patients. Dr. Gunelson is also a member of the American Academy of Facial Esthetics.

Dr. Gunelson is an avid outdoorsman and gained his love for the outdoors growing up in northern Minnesota. He enjoys hunting deer and grouse and manages to get through the long winters by staring at holes in ice, hoping a half-hibernating fish will pass by. He also enjoys playing and watching sports, cooking and grilling, and traveling.

James has lived in Stanley since 2011 and is married to his best friend and Stanley native Roselenna, who now works at the dental office with him. Their large family of five is constantly on the move and loves to serve their friends and community.
