Doctors

Dr. Eric Page

Dr. Eric A. Page grew up in Fergus Falls, Minnesota. After graduating from Concordia College at Moorhead, he completed his dental education at the University of Minnesota School of Dentistry, where he engaged in advanced, elective training in Endodontics, Oral Surgery, and Prosthodontics. He attends continuing education regularly and is a member of the American Dental Association and the Southwest Dental Study Club.

Dr. Eric and his wife Jennifer have been excited to return to a more rural setting, and they enjoy Mankato’s many beautiful hills, lakes, and rivers. They are avid swing dancers and teach Lindy Hop, the original swing dance, through Jennifer’s business Deep Valley Swing. They also enjoy canoeing, fishing, swimming, traveling and exploring.

The best!! Even after a…. “hiatus”…

Dr. Eric is amazing! Such a relief to have a dentist you can fully trust, who is open and specific about the whys and wherefores. I had put off changing dentists for *way* too long and am so happy to have finally taken the plunge. (Published on RateABiz)
