Dr. Eric Thiede
Dr. Eric Thiede is originally from Eau Claire, WI. He completed his bachelors degree in Biology from the University of Minnesota – Duluth. After graduating, he volunteered for a year with AmeriCorps, serving as a youth counselor for rural school districts near his hometown. After serving his volunteer term, he attended the University of Minnesota School of Dentistry and completed his Doctor of Dental Surgery.
Dr. Thiede’s personal philosophy is on comprehensive care. His membership in the Academy of General Dentistry (AGD) started early in dental school and continues to be a major source of post-graduate continuing education. His interests are broad and include all areas of restorative dentistry, surgical and implant dentistry, cosmetics, management of OSA, TMD, and issues surrounding dental anxiety management. He looks forward to growing with his patients over time and developing the relationships that originally steered him towards dentistry.
In his down time, Dr. Thiede loves sports and outdoors. He’s not too old to give up competitive adult sports, especially ice hockey and in the summer loves hitting the golf course. He’s also a big outdoorsman, enjoying camping, hiking, fishing, hunting and backpacking, the PNW has been an incredible place for enjoying all those pursuits. As a born and bred, Wisconsinite, Dr. Thiede also enjoys bringing a little Green n Gold competitive spirit to the practice.
