With more than a decade of experience, Dr. Jeffrey Erickson brings his small town work ethic to his passion for the art of dentistry, and the positive impact he can make in his patient’s health. As a second generation doctor, he understands that both skill and compassion are required for exceptional patient care. He recognizes the trust that patients place in him and his dental team, and appreciates every patient relationship for this reason.
Born and raised in a small town northwest Iowa (Humboldt), Dr. Erickson was taught a strong work ethic at a young age. Growing up a son of a family physician gave him firsthand experience with the healthcare field at an early age, as he made frequent visits to the ER with his mother, who was a doctor. Early morning farm chores and responsibilities he did with his father ingrained the importance of adhering to a schedule, and an early bird mentality with Dr. Erickson. These life skills have stayed with him into his dental career and how he views patient care.
Dr. Erickson earned a BBA in Business Management and a BBS in Biology from the University of Iowa. He graduated from the University of Iowa Dental College in 2010. Dr. Erickson is driven by continuing his education in advanced technology and learning the latest and greatest in digital dentistry. Dr. Erickson continues to expand his knowledge and build upon his skills, dedicating hundreds of hours per year to continued education courses to better serve the needs of his patients. He has advanced training with the World Clinical Laser Institute, the International Dental Implant Association, CEREC Doctors, Spear Education, 3D Dentists, and Myotronics.
When he is not providing his patients with the most advanced care, Dr. Erickson enjoys being outdoors. After 10 years of practicing dentistry in Colorado, Dr. Erickson and his family moved to Arizona to get away from the snow! He exchanged 75+ days of skiing for 75+ days of playing golf. When he’s not seeing patients or continuing his education, he dedicates most of his free time to his growing family, with his wife, Summer, and their two young daughters, Sloane (3) and Scotlyn (1).
