Dr. Jon Erickson was born and raised in Minnesota. His path to becoming a dentist included a bachelor's degree in nursing from Bethel College in 1984. After working for 5 years in Rochester at the Mayo Clinic while continuing to take college courses, Dr Erickson began dental school at the University of Minnesota and graduated in 1994. He continued his training with a General Practice residency in the US Air Force, spending 3 years total in the USAF. He began Fairmont Family Dentistry in 1997, buying the practice of Dr. Tom Hanson.
Patient comfort is very important at Fairmont Family Dentistry, and Dr. Erickson has made it a priority in his continuing education courses. With his background in IV therapy and critical care nursing, it was a natural fit to do sedation dentistry at Fairmont Family Dentistry. Dr. Erickson is one of the few general dentists in Minnesota to offer IV sedation for surgical as well as ordinary restorative procedures.
When not in the office, Dr. Erickson loves spending time with his wife and family and giving his time at his church.
