Eric was raised on a farm in northwestern Minnesota, but he and his wife, Jessica, lived in southern Illinois for four years after graduation, and are just now returning to Minnesota.
They have a one-year-old son, Eli, and appreciate being closer to family and the Minnesota-Nice people of this area. They enjoy most outdoor activities, especially fishing, canoeing, and camping. Eric is also a hobbyist beekeeper and enjoys photography.
Dr. Strand received his undergraduate degree in Biology from the University of North Dakota and completed his dental degree at the University of Minnesota, Minneapolis. He had a very strong interest in academic research throughout undergrad and dental school, but found that he enjoys clinical dentistry because it is a great amalgamation of basic science, technical skill, and customer service.
Erics finds the most interesting and rewarding part of dentistry is getting to know his patients, and he looks forward to meeting more people around Fergus.
