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.

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.
