At Waseca Family Dentistry we strive to give you the best possible treatment and experience to help you achieve your dental goals

Dr. Christianson

Dr. Christianson graduated from the University of Minnesota School of Dentistry in 2008, after completing his undergraduate studies at the University of Minnesota Duluth.

Continuing education is a top priority, as he strives to stay on the cutting edge of dentistry so that he can provide the best dental care possible.  Dr. Christianson has completed many orthodontic and implant courses to further the care he can provide to patients.   

In his spare time, he enjoys spending time with his wife and four children. As an outdoor enthusiast, that's where he can be found when he is not at the office.

Dr. Christianson also enjoys coaching his children’s sports and watching most sports.


Dr. Backes

Dr. Backes is from Buffalo, MN. He is a 2013 graduate of the University of MN School of Dentistry, after receiving his undergraduate degree from St. John's University.

Dr. Backes is a member of the Academy of General Dentistry.

Dr. Backes believes in treating patients with compassion and care. He strives to work with each person to help them reach their own personal dental goals.

He is committed to continuing education to provide the best and most recent dental care available. Dr. Backes is here to provide excellent dental care for you and your family.

When away from the office, Dr. Backes enjoys spending time with his wife and family. He loves being outdoors and enjoys tennis, hiking, spending time at the lake, and photography.

Dr Ostrander

Dr. Ostrander grew up in Glenwood, MN and attended the University of St.Thomas and graduated with a degree in Biology. He completed my dental school education at the University of Minnesota. 

Dentistry is an incredibly rewarding profession. Dr. Ostrander prides himself on clear communication with patients to understand their goals and make sure they feel heard so we can work together to achieve a trusting and comfortable relationship. 

It is important to Dr. Ostrander to stay up-to-date with the most current techniques and technology through my association with several continuing education societies including the ADA, AGD, and attending the Star of the North Conventions. 

When I am not in the office, I enjoy playing sports like golf, softball, pickleball, and basketball. During the summers I spend as much time on a boat as I can!
