Dr. Erickson

Southern Oregon raised, Dr. Ian Erickson had an interest in Dentistry at an early age. His mother Linn is a hygienist and his father Mart is a dentist.  With both parents in the dental business, Dr. Erickson developed  a thorough understanding of the profession. In 2000 he graduated from Grants Pass High School and was accepted into Linfield College.  In 2004 he graduated from Linfield with a Bachelor of Science Degree and then went on to attend Oregon Health Science and University School of Dentistry. It was at OHSU that he met and married his wife Dr. Nicole Keck. Together they graduated from OHSU in 2008 and came back to their hometown in Southern Oregon. Over the past 4 years Dr. Ian Erickson has been working with his father, Dr. Mart Erickson in Grants Pass.  He has valued the opportunity to learn from his father and is excited to begin using his skills at his own practice in Medford.   Sports and extracurricular activities have always been a very important attribute of Dr. Ian’s life which he continues still. He is currently the President of the Rogue Valley Dental Society as well as an active cycler and snowboarder. All of which has taken a recent backseat since the addition of the Doctor’s two boys.

“It has always been a dream of mine to practice with my wife.  Together we are able to provide patients with a true family dental care experience.” – Dr. Erickson

Dr. Keck

Dr. Nicole Keck-Erickson (Dr. Keck) lives in Central Point with her husband and three energetic kids.  Born in Ashland, raised in Medford, she grew up playing sports and was a member of several clubs and organizations. Her childhood experience sparked in her a passion for the outdoors and community involvement, both of which she carries with her today. After graduating from South Medford High School, she went on to get her Bachelor’s Degree in Biology from Oregon State University. She then attended Oregon Health and Sciences University and received her Doctorate in Dentistry. At OHSU she met and married Dr. Ian Erickson of Grants Pass. After graduating, she and her husband moved back to Southern Oregon to practice in their hometown community. Dr. Keck greatly enjoys building long lasting relationships with her patients, while at the same time improving their health and smiles. She understands many people get anxiety when faced with dental appointments, so it is important to her to do what is necessary to ensure that each patient has a comfortable experience.  Dr. Keck loves working in a dental practice with her husband, as well as volunteering at places like the local Children’s Dental Clinic and Medford’s Missions of Mercy.
