Meet the Dentist

Peder B. Morse D.D.S

Dr. Peder B. Morse is a 2003 graduate of the University of Minnesota School of Dentistry.  After growing up in Stillwater, MN, Dr. Morse's undergraduate study in Studio Art was completed at St. Olaf College, in Northfield, Minnesota. Having a passion for the arts and sciences and working with his hands, Dr. Morse decided to pursue a degree in Dentistry. Dr. Morse finds his artist background a perfect match for designing meticulous and sound dental solutions for his patients. Dr. Morse has practiced in Duluth for 16 years. He is a member of the Minnesota Dental Association and the American Dental Association.  

Dr. Morse has many interests outside of dentistry which change with the seasons: fishing in the Spring, cabin time, cycling, hiking, running, exploring in the Summer, bird hunting in the Fall, and Nordic and Telemark skiing through the winters. An annual goal is to finish the American Birkebeiner ski marathon each February.  Dr. Morse enjoys sharing his seasonal interests with his wife Siiri and two sons Ian and Carl.
