Dear Patients, Friends and Colleagues:

After 28 years of working and raising my family in the Lompoc Valley, it is time for me to retire from practicing dentistry full time. I am very excited to announce that my practice will be merging with Ericson Dental. Starting in October, all of our patients will be seen at 1201 E. Ocean Avenue at Ericson Dental’s current location. After a slight remodel, we will all be returning to our current location at 719 E. Ocean Avenue.

I have chosen Ericson Dental because of the reputation they have built in our area and because I have recognized they practice with a philosophy in alignment with my own. With affiliations with the AACD, ICOI, AGD, CDA and Santa Barbara and Ventura County Dental Society, I am confident that we will provide for all of your family’s dental needs together. In fact, Karen and I will be joining Dr. Sten Ericson, Dr. Dane Dudley, Dr. Robert Brugnone and the rest of the Ericson Dental team and are looking forward to this new partnership!

I want to thank you for your business and friendship over the last 28 years. I have loved being a part of this community and look forward to continue seeing you as part of the Ericson Dental team.

The initial visit to this dentist office was surprisingly pleasant. I arrived early and was seated in the dental chair before the actual appointment time. All of the staff were courteous, knowledgeable and friendly. The dental work was performed quickly and painlessly.

As always my visit was outstanding. No one has ever cleaned my teeth as well as Kristian does. Top notch professional practice and staff. Dr. Ericson has succeeded in providing us with the best people to care for our dental needs. Mission Accomplished ! Thank you so very much 🙂

I loved my visit!! I was greeted with a warm smiling welcome by Theresa and Cynthia at the front. Theresa kindly helped me to fill-out my information on the ipad and I then had my teeth cleaned by Christian. Christian was amazing!! She explained everything she did, was personable, friendly, and gentle. Dr. Ericson also greeted me with a smile and was very informative and thoughtful! I would highly recommend this dental office to anyone-- it is by far the most comfortable and welcoming dental office in town!!

I really liked the new hygienist who cleaned my teeth. She also helped me to learn how to place my teeth whitening trays into my mouth. I appreciated her taking the time to show me this. I also really appreciate the office almost always being on time.

I walked in on a Friday afternoon with no previous appointment and they got me in right away. The did a quick x-ray and solved my problem!! Outstanding, warm and welcoming!!

Amy at the front desk was very kind and welcoming. She was also very clear in explaining and providing a written summary of my costs and insurance benefits. I really appreciated this.

Shirley is also a delight. Dr. Ericson showed sincere interest in my post-crown work discomfort. Amy promised to email a cost update to the crown work. Teresa is wonderful personable. What a fine team!
