hank you for your interest in Woodgrove Dental, your Woodbury and Cottage Grove dentists. Serving the east metro area including Woodbury and Cottage Grove, we are excited to welcome you to our practice. Since 1970, we have been a part of the east metro community. We love seeing infants through seniors, from preventive care to cosmetic dentistry. Our doctors, Shannon Cunningham, Vicki Raitor, and Evgeny Bashirov, have decades of experience and are excited to get to know you.
Dr. Shannon Cunningham graduated from the University of Wisconsin – Madison in 1992 with a B.S. degree in zoology and English. She went on to the University of Minnesota Dental School to earn her DDS degree in 1997 and joined Woodgrove Dental in 1999. She loves seeing patients of all ages for a variety of dental treatment. She’s dedicated to creating an enjoyable dental experience. She enjoys spending time with her husband, two children, and their Old English Sheepdog. She has fun going for walks, watching her kids’ sporting events, Twins games, and cooking. She would love to write a children’s book about going to the dentist.
Dr. Vicki Raitor achieved her Bachelor’s degree in 1984 and her Doctor of Dental Surgery degree in 1988 while attending the University of Minnesota. After graduation she joined Woodgrove Dental in 1989 where she remains today. Her passion for dentistry shows in the quality of the work she produces. In fact, many patients that started their dental care with her as young children, now bring their children to see her. Dr. Raitor extends her zeal for quality healthcare out into the community by volunteering her time with the Spinal Cord Society for the past 28 years. When Dr. Raitor has time, she enjoys activities like walking, biking, boating, gardening and fishing with her family and friends.
