Dr. Patrick Capp

If you’re in need of some dental work, here’s a name you can trust: Dr. Capp.

But West Fargo dentist Patrick Capp didn’t see the connection between his name and his chosen field when he picked it.

“The funny thing is, before I went to dental school, I’d never heard of a cap before, on your tooth,” the Brooks, Minn., native said. “I knew it as a crown.”

A cap or crown is a piece that fits over and envelopes the tooth.

He may not have known he was choosing a name-appropriate profession, but it’s worked out well. Capp said he enjoys what he does.

“You get to meet and talk to a lot of different people,” he said. “That’s always interesting.”
