Meet Dr. Thompson
Rebecca R. Thompson, D.D.S.
Not just anybody can claim to be a country girl and a city girl, but I can and do. I started out my life on a very small dairy farm in southeastern Minnesota and am happy to say I developed my work ethic there. Around my eleventh birthday I moved to Minneapolis where I found a whole new world. I am truly grateful for the diversity in my upbringing. I finished high school in Minneapolis and returned to my rural background when choosing college.
I graduated from St. Olaf College with a Bachelor of Arts in Psychology and went on to the University of Minnesota School of Dentistry. I graduated in 2000 and joined a group practice in Champlin Minnesota. I returned to the School of Dentistry to teach part time for a short time while maintaining my busy work schedule, but soon discovered I loved being a dentist much more than being a teacher. Dr. Craig Peterson lured me to Waseca in 2002 and I am happy to call it my home. I took over his practice in 2003 and have been able to keep the wonderful staff and family-like atmosphere he worked so hard to achieve intact.
I live in Waseca with my two little girls, and truly enjoy being a part of such a warm community. I have met so many wonderful people here and look forward to meeting you too.
