Fight Decay with Composite Fillings at Ericson Dental
Cavities are a reality of life. Almost everyone will at one point or another suffer from tooth decay. Fortunately, composite fillings offer a way to help fight decay and keep your mouth and whole body healthy.
Ericson Dental’s philosophy of care is centered on using modern, non-invasive strategies and techniques to make sure your dental and whole body health remain strong. That’s why we use composite fillings to help you fight decay in your teeth.
In addition to looking more natural and being a stronger material for your tooth’s filling, it’s also less toxic and a more environmentally friendly material.
Why composite fillings?

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)
