Founded in 1979, Dakota Pediatrics has served the South Saint Paul & Inver Grove Heights community for over 30 years. Dr. Jane VanRoekel, the clinic's founding pediatrician, believed that healthcare should be delivered in a family-focused atmosphere where a strong relationship exists between provider and family. That’s how we've quickly become one of the best pediatricians in St. Paul. Throughout our existence, Dakota Pediatrics has always stayed small to truly provide that level service, especially when large corporations and private practices consolidated to increase profits at the expense of their patients. In 2010, Lindsey Deeb, RN, CNP, Dr. VanRoekel's daughter-in-law, took over ownership and operation of the clinic and continues the tradition of family-focused healthcare. Not all pediatricians in St. Paul will strive to build a relationship with your family, but here at Dakota Pediatrics it’s our top priority.
