Douglas McNaught, DDS
"I love the challenges of dentistry, and I am dedicated to my best. Helping people, encouraging prevention, and being able to instill good oral health habits is what makes my profession so rewarding. We have one of the best dental teams possible, and itâ€™s extremely rewarding and gratifying to work with so many outstanding professionals. " - Dr. McNaught
Long Lake Dental opened its doors over 50 years ago when Dr. John Sagehorn began practicing in this area. I began working with Dr. Sagehorn over 25 years ago, and in 1998 was honored to take over the practice and continue providing the outstanding dental and patient care that he was known for. Many of our staff have been with us for almost 20 years. We all enjoy working together, and we know that you and your family will always enjoy visiting our practice. I am proud to welcome you to Long Lake Dental.

Outside of the Practice
I am originally from Montana, where my parents still live in Great Falls. In 1981, I chose to make Minnesota my permanent home. Today I live in Cottagewood along Lake Minnetonka. My lovely wife, Kate, and I have three adult children. Our oldest son is a recent graduate of Northwestern Graduate School with a masterâ€™s degree is Sports Marketing. Our second daughter is a happily engaged bride-to-be, and works in research and development for General Mills. Our youngest daughter, a recent Marquette University graduate, is currently seeking further education in advertising. My wife and I are extremely proud of our children.
Kate has worked with me at Long Lake Dental for over 15 years now, and she takes care of the bookkeeping, accounts payable, and partners with me in making major office decisions. She is not only a wonderful wife, but also an exceptional business partner. I enjoy spending my days with her at the practice and at home.
Living in the Lake Minnetonka area is wonderful! When Iâ€™m not at the practice, I enjoy participating in a variety of lake activities, from sailing and fishing in the summer, to skiing and ice fishing in the winter. I am the past commodore of the Minnetonka Yacht Club, and enjoy sailing our 38 foot â€œAâ€ racing scow. When Iâ€™m not sailing, you can often find me fishing for muskies. I am also a huge garage sale shopper, and have found many great treasures including collectible antiques, as well as old nautical, hunting, and fishing equipment.
