Why He Was Nominated
Dr. Dalseth, with two associates also under 40, advocates modern, progressive innovation. His practice has received recognition for installing an energy-saving heating and cooling system.
Attention to detail — from taking kids’ pictures to remembering to ask a patient about his sick brother — is one thing that keeps multiple generations of families coming to his practice. “There’s a lot of satisfaction seeing grandparents, children and grandchildren,” he says.
It’s difficult to see patients suffering from pain, Dr. Dalseth says, but rewarding when they leave comfortable.
Favorite Office Music
Classical. “Music is supposed to be a subtle undercurrent,” he says. “Soothing and felt, not necessarily heard.”
