With specialties including preventative, restorative and cosmetic dentistry, the office of Anderson Lake Dental is fully equipped to meet your dental needs and exceed your expectations. Our mission is to provide professional and compassionate dental care and to help our patients achieve the beautiful healthy smiles they deserve.
Confidence about your smile can affect how you feel about yourself personally and professionally. Many advances have been made in general and cosmetic dentistry, but the quality of care you receive can vary from practice to practice. That’s why it’s important to insist on a dentist with the right credentials and extensive training when considering a dental procedure. Our dental professionals are highly skilled artisans who have been trained at leading dental schools and pursue continuing education to provide outstanding care.
As part of our commitment to improving our patients’ smiles and lives, we are proud to offer flexible scheduling and financing options, because dental health is something that no one should put off because of time constraints and money problems.

Dr. Shiraz Asif, DDS
I received my dental degree from Karachi Pakistan in 1999. In 2000, I moved to the United States with my wife, who is my life and dental partner, Dr. Ambereen Suhrwardy. I completed my dental residency in Operative Dentistry at Indiana University – Purdue University at Indianapolis in 2004, and completed my education in Advanced Education in General Dentistry at the University of Minnesota in 2005. I recently completed my Certificate of Cosmetic and Esthetic Dentistry from the University of Minnesota and I have clocked hundreds of hours of continuing education in dentistry.
After earning my dental license I worked as a general dentist in two solo practices, one practice in Minneapolis and one in Prior Lake, Minnesota. In 2006, I joined a group practice with ten doctors and served as a full time dentist and the clinic director for three years. In January of 2009, I acquired Dr. Kathy Arnold’s practice in Eden Prairie, Minnesota.
My goal is to provide the finest dental care in the most comfortable environment. I try to show deep personal respect and genuine enthusiasm for all my patients. Excellence in our practice results not only from our high tech facility but also from the highest level of training combined with sincere dedication towards our patients. I am a firm believer in honesty as a part of dentistry and only recommend treatment that I would consider for myself and my loved ones.
When I am not practicing dentistry I enjoy spending time with my wife Amber and kids Danial and Aleena. I love to stay active and fit, play the piano and travel whenever possible.
Dr. Shiraz is a member of the AGD and the Acadamy of GP Orthodontics.
Dr. Ambereen Suhrwardy, DDS
I received my dental degree from Karachi/Pakistan in 1999. It was there, that I met my husband, Shiraz. We married after graduation and came to the United States for further studies. We were both accepted into the two year Operative Dentistry program at Indiana University – Purdue University at Indianapolis. I graduated from the program in 2004 and started my residency in the Advanced Education in General Dentistry at the University of Minnesota. After earning my dental license, I worked for a two years in a private practice, a group practice, and for nursing homes. The nursing home experience helped me further develop oral surgery and removable prosthodontics skills.
My top priority as a dentist is to treat each patient as an individual, provide them the best dental care available, and place their comfort and satisfaction first. I am always at the forefront of my profession and continually expand my professional knowledge by attending numerous classes and seminars each year. I have attended several continuing education courses in various fields of dentistry including endodontics, implant restoration, and CEREC.
