Meet Dr. Erickson

Prosthodontist in Duluth

Douglas Erickson, DDS, MS, FACP or Roxanna Esguerra, DDS, MS

Dr. Doug Erickson is a Diplomate of the American Board of Prosthodontics. He received his DDS degree at the University of Minnesota, and his graduate prosthodontic training through the United States Air Force prosthodontic training program at Wilford Hall Medical Center and the University of Texas Health Sciences Medical Center San Antonio, Texas.

Dr. Erickson served 10 years as a commissioned officer in the United States Air Force, achieving the rank of Lt. Col., prior to establishing a full-time prosthodontic practice in Duluth, Minnesota.

Patient Review By Peggy R

Julie's kindness and compassion when I first made my appointment and when I had my consultation was one of the main reasons I went ahead with my bonding procedure.Dr. Esguerra is so professional, thorough and so very skilled. She even called me the evening prior to my procedure to make sure I didn't have any concerns. I feel like a new person now and can smile proudly. Thank you so very much!
