New Patients

Jan 2023

Modern Dentistry Associates are proud to announce the retirement of Dr. Sven Erickson, who has served our community for 33 years. He is passing the torch to Dr. Andrea Godawa, who will uphold the qualities Dr. Erickson instilled in his practice of caring for patients. Dr. Godawa will continue to provide superb care to all patients, present and future. Please offer your congratulations to both Dr. Erickson and Dr. Godawa on their next adventures.

Start Loving Your St. Joseph Dentist

Welcoming New Patients

You’ve found your new St. Joseph dentist. Now what? It’s time to schedule your new patient appointment. We take pride in being able to see new patients who are struggling with a dental emergency the same day you call our office. Generally, a new patient like you is easily and conveniently scheduled within one or two days of your initial contact with our office. We welcome you to our office and we know that the partnership you form with us is one that will last a lifetime. Most new patients will see a dental assistant first, then a hygienist, before meeting with Dr. Godawa.

Why We’re More Than Just a St. Joseph Dentist

In our office, we like to think that we create true and pure partnerships with patients. It’s an approach to dental care that’s more relationship-based and less clinical. We don’t just say we take the time to get to know and understand you, we listen and do it the right way. From your initial comprehensive exam to every single followup appointment in the future, you and your needs come first and foremost. In all of the years we’ve practiced dentistry, the one thing we value most is the people we’ve met and the stories they have shared. We’re just here to help make life a little easier and better with a healthy, balanced smile and outstanding oral health.
