Dr. Elizabeth Minard, DDS, FAGD
As a Wisconsin Native (Go PACK!), I did my undergraduate studies at the University of Wisconsin-Madison and then attended Marquette University School of Dentistry, where I graduated Magna Cum Laude in 2014. In 2020, l received my fellowship (FAGD) in the Academy of General Dentistry--a 6-year endeavor--requiring over 500 hours of continuing education and passing a rigorous examination. Among only 6% of dentists in the United States with the distinction, an FAGD award is one of the highest awards a general dentist can achieve. It represents my commitment to continuous learning and staying on cutting edge of dentistry.
What I really want you to know about me is that I love dentistry and I love people. I am passionate about achieving optimal oral and overall health and am committed to helping you do the same. I consider it a privilege and honor to work with people to help educate and motivate them to achieve their goals.
In my personal life, I am devoted to achieving optimal health through nutrition, exercise and constant learning. Being active is #1 for me. I enjoy crossfit and yoga and anything where I can get moving outside! I love to read and am always listening to podcasts and audio-books where I can continue to learn.
As you can probably tell from this bio, I love to chat. I promise to take the time to answer your questions and make you feel at ease. Please feel free to reach out to me personally if you have any questions about your dental care. I look forward to getting to know each and every one of you!
