Meet the Team at Lone Oak Dental

Our dental practice was started by Dr. Daniel Carlson in 1978. Prior to opening the office in Brookings, Dr. Carlson had offices in Estelline and Arlington, South Dakota. In 2015 Dr. Jordan acquired the practice and renamed it Lone Oak Dental. Here are the components of our Mission Statement, which guides our interactions with you:

  • Offer our patients the highest standard of quality dental care available, in the most compassionate manner.
  • Treat our patients and members of the community the way we would like to be treated.
  • Offer our patients the most advanced techniques, technologies, and materials relevant to our practice of dentistry.
  • Continually advance our knowledge and expertise in all relevant areas of dental care.
  • Use our combined individual gifts and talents, working together as a a team to treat, educate, and comfort patients.

Bradley Jordan, DDS

I grew up in Stillwater, Minnesota. My dental degree is from the University of Minnesota, where I graduated third in my class. After dental school, I had the privilege of completing an Advanced Education in General Dentistry residency in San Antonio, Texas. This intense program gave me the training needed to confidently complete difficult procedures such as implants, cosmetics, full mouth reconstructions, and sedation dentistry. One of the greatest aspects of this program was that we treated U.S. Veterans and it allowed me to give back to those who have served our great country.

After the residency, we relocated to Iowa, where I practiced for three years. We are so happy and fortunate to live and practice in the Brookings area. I am married to the most creative and wonderful woman in the world, Liz. You may see our two young boys riding their bikes or swimming at the aquatic center. Feel free to stop in and say hi!
