Meet the Team

Our highly trained, knowledgeable staff is dedicated to creating beautiful and healthy smiles in a comfortable and friendly atmosphere. We pride ourselves on your comfort and make every effort to make your time with us as pleasant as possible.

Drs. Erickson and Aamodt and each of our staff members is dedicated to our patients’ successful treatment outcomes. To stay current with advances in orthodontics, we attend continuing education seminars, conduct team meetings, and do in-office training. We strive to keep you informed throughout the treatment process so we encourage you to ask questions. We find informed patients are more comfortable with their treatment, and that gives them the best possible experience and optimum results.
