Best experience I have ever had. Really they took care of me and I am not a fan of dentists. I have had major dental work done and the office staff and dental assistants have been fantastic! If you need a dentist I recommend Ericson Dental all the way. I love Ericson Dental and will never go to another dentist.Lisa G.
Both Dr Ericson and Dr Baer are personable, kind, and most importantly, great dentists. The office environment is very inviting, and the staff are happy to be there. Dr Ericson is the first to know and learn about new techniques, and I find that very comforting and exciting. He really wants the best for his patients! Highly recommend.Shannon C. (FEB '16)

I have been going to Dr Ericson for a few years now. It is always a great experience. They are all very friendly and professional. Dr Ericson is phenomenal and is always eager to talk to you and find out how you are doing and what you have been doing!Alex H. (Jan '16)
I have been pleased with the care I've received at Ericson Dental this past year. The staff is pleasant, the dentists are skilled, and the equipment is first rate. I had a cavity filled about 6 weeks ago. Dr. Ericson used a new machine which numbed only the tooth, not the surrounding tissue. No more walking around with a numb jaw. Sweet!Wayne I.
Dr. Baer and the other staff at Ericson Dental are amazing. This is one of the cleanest, most professional offices I've been to. It is very clean, there is no waiting past your appointment time, everyone is friendly, and clearly this whole team knows what they're doing and have worked together for some time. I highly recommend this dental office!Ryan O. (Jan '16)

Very professional staff and Dr. Ericson provides a conservative approach to dental care. Always takes time to answer questions and never appears to be in a hurry.David G.
I have had nothing but great experiences at Ericson Dental. The doctors and the staff are caring and knowledgeable. They even got me in on short notice when I chipped my front tooth. Thank you Ericson Dental.Mike T. (Mar '16)
3 Commonly Asked Questions About Dental Insurance
Don’t forget! Every dental insurance policy is a bit different. The best way to get accurate information about your insurance plan and fully answer these questions is to ask.
Does dental insurance only cover exams and cleanings?
Not usually. Most dental insurance policies cover more than just cleanings and exams. Your plan probably also provides at least partial coverage of procedures like fillings, crowns, and root canals.
Is there a limit to what my insurance will cover?
Yes. Dental insurance plans typically have a maximum amount they’ll cover each year. Our team can help you anticipate this and make sure you maximize these benefits every calendar year.
Does dental insurance cover implants?
It depends. Dental insurance companies typically consider implants a “major” procedure. Some insurances may cover a certain percentage of the cost of major procedures, and others won’t. It’s important to check plan details to understand what’s covered and what percentage.
