Meet Dr. Erickson
Prosthodontist in Duluth
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. While in the Air Force, Dr. Erickson served as an educator and dental laboratory manager to over 60 enlisted dental laboratory technicians. He was also instrumental in developing and installing the Air Force Stereolithography laboratory in 1995 – perhaps making Wilford Hall the first medical center in the world to have its own Stereolithography machine to support the many surgical specialties at Wilford Hall.
