“I love the fact that when I come to work my entire family is working alongside of me. My entire family is in dentistry and we love making our patients smile. Our dental practice here in Grants Pass is all about overdelivering to our patients. We strive to achieve the very best results and deliver long-lasting dental work. We offer new technologies that make dental care more comfortable and convenient for our patients. Along with my wife and my mom, we all share the same passion for making people smile every day! Our goal is a true family practice and to treat our patients as our family.” ~Dr. Sten Erickson
