Dr. Schaus is a graduate from the University of Minnesota School of Dentistry. Following graduation, Dr. Schaus entered the United States Navy Dental Corps where he served Sailors and Marines aboard the aircraft carrier USS Theodore Roosevelt (CVN -71), including a deployment to the Middle East.

Sara began her career as a Dental Hygienist in 2010 and has worked at a wide variety of clinics as both a clinician and in practice management. She was so happy to be able to start working with Dr. Schaus in 2020. She is grateful to work with a team who shares her passion for education and preventative medicine, especially because she knows our mouth often give clues about larger overarching health conditions. Sara works with Dr. Schaus as a Licensed Dental Hygienist, dental assistant, Orofacial Myofunctional Therapist, and occasionally at the front desk. This variety allows her to be involved in each step of a patient’s dental health journey! She loves getting to know her patients and tries her best to make each visit as comfortable as possible.
When Sara isn’t hard at work, you’ll likely find her off in the woods somewhere – running with her shepherd, Loma, riding her horse, Onyx, hiking, camping or competitively cycling (gravel, mountain, cyclocross and fat!). Sara grew up on a dairy farm in central Wisconsin, but she has been a Minnesota resident for the last 10 years and loves her cute, historic home in South Minneapolis.
