Read on to learn more about our highly qualified dentist, hygienists and staff.
Dr. Friesz and his wife, DeeDee, grew up in Mandan, North Dakota. They both attended the same high school and through the years have raised two wonderful children, Jazmyn and Nevin.
When I look back now, I believe I always wanted to care for the health of people and never hesitated in the direction I was pointed during college. I gained my bachelor degree from the University of North Dakota and during that time learned a great deal about many sectors of the health care profession. Ultimately I was led into dentistry through my wife. She had attained her dental assisting credentials early on and through her contacts, I began to understand the tremendous care provided by dentists. Moreover, I saw the close relationships they had forged with their patients and that really finalized my career path.” Dr. Jason Friesz
In 2002, Dr. Friesz graduated with his DDS degree from the University of Minnesota and began his search for the right place for his family to call home. St. Cloud seemed perfect from the start. Everyone has welcomed them so warmly and they have enjoyed all the recreation the St. Cloud area has to offer.
