About Us

Skyway Dental of St. Paul has been serving downtown’s dental needs for over 35 years.  We strive to be the most convenient, comfortable, and compassionate dental office in the city.


Dr. Carly Lawson joined the Skyway Dental team in 2011 and became owner in 2014.

In 2006, Dr. Lawson graduated at the top of her class from the University of Minnesota School of Dentistry.  She earned accolades for her academic, clinical, and leadership abilities.  In private practice, she has excelled in helping people feel more comfortable at the dentist and more confident in their smile.  “I want to create an environment where patients can trust that they are receiving quality dentistry from someone who really cares about them as an individual.”

Outside the office, Dr. Lawson enjoys spending time her family – husband (and Skyway Dental business manager) Kramer and children Owen and Norah.  When she can get a little time to herself, she enjoys running, golf, reading, and indulging her sweet tooth.

A native of Farmington, Minnesota, Dr. Apelgren attended the College of Saint Benedict, then completed her Doctor of Dental Surgery at the Minnesota School of Dentistry.  Since graduation, Dr. Apelgren has been in private practice, providing exceptional care to patients of all ages.
