Meet Dr. James McDontald

James McDonald, DDS

I believe that practicing dentistry is a privilege. Helping people improve their lives by improving and maintaining their oral health is the reason I became a dentist almost 30 years ago. I truly enjoy getting to know my patients and their families and have built some wonderful relationships with them over the years.


 I feel I owe it to my patients, who put their trust in me, to provide dental services in the best and most modern manner possible. The changes and developments in the field of dentistry have been amazing and provide me with exciting new ways to provide treatment for my patients. I continue my education through the Heartland Study Club and have been involved with organized dentistry through the North Dakota Board of Dental Examiners and the North Dakota Dental Association.

Our Team

Our staff members are truly the heartbeat of our practice and have been a special blessing. They are all good people who are good at what they do. I’ve worked with most of them for a decade or two and consider them to be a very special group of friends.

Outside the Office

I am a Fargo, ND, native and am honored to live and work in this great community. My wife, children and I love to travel, camp and spend time on the lake.  I love to fish and am an avid baseball fan. Over the years, I have been a Red Cross Board member, served on Church Boards, been a Big Brother in the Big Brother/Big Sister Program, taught confirmation, been a youth athletic coach, and serve as the Redhawks Baseball Team Dentist.
