Dr. Erickson's bio

This content was provided by Dr. Erickson "I am passionate about orthodontics. I really enjoy helping to improve the lives of people by giving them a smile they are proud of. I can't think of a more rewarding thing to do than to change the way a person feels about themselves. We have a great staff, a great office, and the best patients. We have fun every day, and enjoy getting to know each patient and their family." After studying Chemistry and Biology at Weber State University, Dr. Erickson attended Indiana University School of Dentistry, where he earned his Doctorate of Dental Surgery degree. While in dental school, he earned several awards for research and his work with children and his involvement with fellow students. He presented his research at several national and international meetings. Following dental school, Dr. Erickson served as "Lieutenant Erickson," receiving several awards as a Naval Dental Officer. He moved his family to Okinawa, Japan, where he treated Marines and Sailors and their families for two years. He also served with the 31st Marine Expeditionary Unit, where he served aboard the USS Essex and trained at the Jungle Warfare Training Center. He then served at Naval Dental Center San Diego for a year, helping prepare Sailors for deployment to Iraq and Afghanistan. After his military service, Dr. Erickson pursued his passion for orthodontics at St. Barnabas Hospital in the Bronx, NY. He took courses at Columbia University and completed his three-year Residency in Orthodontics in June of 2006. Dr. Erickson joined Dr. Mervyn K.
