Dr. Kristine Bechard graduated from the University of Minnesota Dental School in 1992 and then worked for a year as a dentist on the Navajo Indian Reservation in Ft. Defiance, AZ where her first son was born. In July of 1993, Dr. Bechard moved to Eau Claire, Wisconsin, where both of her parents were raised, and worked there as a dentist for 21 years. Most recently she has been practicing in Durand and Thorp, Wisconsin. She is excited to get back to the Chippewa Valley area where all four children were raised. Dr. Bechard is a member of both the West Central Wisconsin Study Club and the Chippewa Valley Dental Society.
Outside of dentistry, Dr. Bechard enjoys golfing, camping, playing the piano, riding motorcycles and community theatre. Dr. Bechard believes in establishing great relationships with all of her patients and providing them with the highest quality of dentistry possible. She is excited to be taking over an office dedicated to excellence in dentistry and patient care.
