Meet Dr. Erickson

Prosthodontist in Duluth

Douglas Erickson, DDS, MS, FACP

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 Charlie B

Mine was a unique process. It was close to four years of work. The outcome far exceeded my very high expectations. The whole office was a breeze to work with, and were super helpful all along the way. The final product looks amazing, and I can't feel anything but normal teeth. The only disappointment is I can't show off my teeth, Covid and masks.

Patient Review By Monica V

My experience with Dr. Erickson and his staff was over- the- top wonderful! He is personable,friendly and extremely competent. He was willing to work within my financial constraints and still provide me with a partial that fits well AND looks good. During my first appointment I was impressed with the clean office and all the safety precautions he has in place. This was only increased post Covid-19. I would definitely recommended him to my family and friends.
