Orthodontics is about more than just teeth--it’s about relationships. Finding an orthodontist and an office where you feel comfortable will make your orthodontic experience a great one.
Jeff Erickson, DDS
Dr. Erickson often receives compliments on his ability to listen to and communicate well with patients. He does a marvelous job of helping people feel comfortable as he strives to fully understand each person’s needs, works hard to make sure that those needs are met, and that their questions are answered. Patients can tell that he sincerely cares, and really enjoys what he does. He loves to have fun and laughter can often be heard throughout the clinic. Although he does have fun, Dr. Erickson takes orthodontics seriously. He is meticulous about getting your teeth just right and often gets compliments from dentists and patients about the quality of his work.
As we take the braces off a patient, we ask them what they liked best about their experience. Most often, the answer is “the staff.” Our staff is friendly, fun loving, and works hard to take care of our patients. Since they see our patients on a regular basis, they get to know each other well, and develop lasting relationships. Although the staff takes time to treat each person individually, they are well trained and treat patients efficiently. They try hard to not make you wait, and have great systems in place to get you on your way quickly. The staff works hard, enjoys what they do, and has an enjoyable time, but are also sensitive and are able to understand and fulfill their patients’ needs.

Since a very young age, I've always known that healthcare was going to be my career path. I was born and raised in Deweyville, Utah as the oldest of three. My parents are also my heroes and they have always motivated me to work hard and follow my dreams. Shortly after graduating from Bear River High School, I decided to move to St. George where I completed a dental assisting program. Working with Dr. E has been one of the best experiences of my life. I love seeing all of our awesome patients every day and working with such an amazing staff. It's not too often that you can say that your happy place is also your job. I am extremely grateful for this office and the opportunity I have to help others gain confidence and love their smiles.
