Erin moved to Columbia Falls, from Washington, in 2019. She cherishes time with her husband, son, and two dogs. Her favorite activities include: working out, fishing, and eating snacks (that’s why she works out). Erin is a great team player, which she attributes to playing lots of sports as a youth. Her preferred pastime is watching movies, especially in the cold Montana winters. We enjoy the wonderful positivity she contributes to the office. Erin is a Registered Dental Hygienist, with a B.S. in Biology, and has been practicing for over 6 years.


Senior Receptionist

Erica became a part of our practice in December of 2020. She graduated from the University of Montana in 2014. She loves our family atmosphere and the sound of laughter in our office, and she is very grateful to be working in such a supportive, family-centered environment with a great team. She tries her best to help patients understand their care needs and strategizes how best to use their insurance benefits. Erica is our resident “green thumb” and brings a wonderful aura to the office with the flora she nurtures.

Erica has been with her husband, Andrew, for over nine years, and together they have three boys. When not in the office, she loves baking and trying all kinds of different recipes for dinner. She paints when she has free time and loves spending time with her family, friends and dogs.
