Dr. Caitlin Hemmerich

(Maplewood, Woodbury, and Forest Lake offices)


Dr. Caitlin Hemmerich is a highly skilled and compassionate periodontist.  She is dedicated to clinical excellence and patient-centered service.  She is known for her calm demeanor and empathetic approach.  She takes time to listen to patient concerns and brings a unique blend of expertise and warmth to Ridge Periodontics.

Dr. Hemmerich was mentored in her training by Drs. Rob and Jane Jensen, and when they were ready to retire they knew she was the perfect fit to continue to provide their patients with the excellent periodontal care that they had been providing since 1974.  She bought the practice in 2018 and it became Ridge Periodontics. 

In her free time Dr. Hemmerich enjoys playing the violin, traveling, and biking with her husband and two sons.
