Your No Judgement St. Joseph Dentist

Learn More About Dr. Erickson

Dr. Erickson is a native of Coloma, Michigan where he eventually went on to attend Kalamazoo College. While studying dentistry, he had the opportunity to intern at the National Institute of Dental Research, a part of the National Institutes of Health in Bethesda, Maryland. He’s a graduate of the University of Michigan School of Dentistry. While there, Dr. Erickson was selected to represent the School of Dentistry at the Nippon Dental University in Niigata and Tokyo, Japan as part of a student exchange program. Upon graduation from dental school, he purchased the practice of Dr. Edward Atwood in St. Joseph, Michigan and practiced for many years on Niles Road.

Outside of Dentistry

When he’s not helping patients as their trusted St. Joseph dentist, Dr. Erickson enjoys reading non-fiction, Buddhist, and environmental literature. He chooses to approach life consciously and mindfully, encouraging all those around him to do the same. Dr. Erickson believes that all knowledge and education is always good, even if it can be uncomfortable at times. Much of his energy outside the office is devoted to advocating for a greater understanding and compassion in the world around us. If he wasn’t a dentist, Dr. Erickson would be restoring vintage trailers and travel extensively with his husband.
