Dr. Jenny Ruoho

Cosmetic and Family Dentist with Advanced Sedation and Implant Training

Dr. Jenny Ruoho has had a lifelong interest in dentistry and began working in the dental field in 1991. She started her career as a dental assistant and later graduated with a doctor of dental surgery degree from the University of Minnesota School of Dentistry in 2002. After graduation, Dr. Ruoho completed a residency at the Veteran’s Hospital in Minneapolis.

During the residency, she learned advanced endodontic (root canal) and oral surgery techniques as well as dental sleep. After completing the residency, Dr. Ruoho worked in various private practice settings before opening Relaxation Dentistry in 2007. She has completed advanced training in several specialty areas including cosmetic dentistry, sedation, implants, tongue tie, TMJD, functional occlusion, snoring and sleep apnea.

She completed her dental implant training through the Misch International Implant Institute and was awarded Fellowship status in The International Congress of Oral Implantologists in 2014. She is passionate about learning the latest technology and techniques in implant dentistry and completed over 100 hours of implant-specific continuing education in 2019 alone. She is an alumni of the Pikos Institute.

Dr. Ruoho has been a certified Invisalign provider since 2016. She is an ambassador of The Breathe Institute in Los Angeles, CA and has received training at Alabama Tongue Tie Center and The Dawson Academy.

Dr. Ruoho is passionate about providing a wide range of single tooth dental services (endodontics/root canals, oral surgery, implants, and restorative dentistry) as well as full arch immediate implant dentistry and complete dentistry. Complete dentistry involves an understanding of how the TMJ, the muscles of mastication, the teeth, the tongue, and the airway all work harmoniously together. Complete dentistry may include an assessment of the TMJ, a functional analysis of the forces on the teeth and TMJ, tongue tie restrictions, airway assessment, sleep study, interpretation of airway and TMJ imaging, understanding forces that cause thinning, chipping, cracking and broken teeth, TMJ and facial pain.  

She provides three levels of sedation including Nitrous oxide, Oral Conscious Sedation and IV sedation (by special arrangement with CRNA).  

Her focus is doing high-quality, long-lasting dentistry and making each appointment as comfortable as possible.

Dr. Ruoho lives in Chaska with her husband, John and their sons, Jack and Charlie. She enjoys running, reading, photography, skiing, mountain biking, cooking and spending time with family, friends and her West Highland White Terrier, Lemon.
