Dr. Megan Mulligan, DDS
Dr. Madeline Stead, DDS
Dr. Madeline Stead joined Grand Avenue Dental in May 2023. She completed her undergraduate studies and earned her Doctor of Dental Surgery degree from the University of Iowa in 2019. She then went on to work at a community health center in Cedar Rapids, Iowa for three years. She is happy to be back in the Twin Cities living and working very close to where she grew up. Dr. Stead loves that dentistry blends her creative and artistic abilities with her interest in the sciences, health, and wellbeing. She strives to provide each of her patients with the best individualized care possible through compassion and open communication. Being a general dentist feeds Dr. Stead’s passion because she enjoys seeing patients of all ages and loves the daily variety of patients and dental health opportunities. “Taking the time to build relationships with my patients is very important to me because I want them to feel comfortable in my care.” In her free time, Dr. Stead enjoys traveling, trying new restaurants, staying active outdoors, and spending time with her family, friends, and big Bernedoodle (Bernese Mountain Dog / Poodle), Henry.
Dr. Paul Amble, DDS
Kristen joined Grand Avenue Dental in February 2020. She graduated from Herzing University with an AAS in Dental Hygiene in 2009 and worked with Dr. Mulligan in a large group practice early in her dental career. Kristen is detail oriented and enjoys building trusting relationships with her patients. When she is not working Kristen enjoys golfing, home projects, dog training, playing fantasy football, and watching the Vikings during football season. She currently resides in the North Metro with her two dogs. She has a Great Pyrenees (George) and a German Shepherd (Mayhem). While Mayhem does live up to his name in many ways, Kristen trained him in tracking and nose work (finding scent) as well, a nice skill to have if you tend to misplace important, smelly, items. In addition, she volunteers at Minneapolis Animal Care & Control as a dog walker, treadmill trainer, and TikTok content creator.
