Happy Retirement Dr. Hamilton!

By | News | No Comments

To all my patients whom I have had the privilege of treating at Summit Family Dental Care:

I sincerely appreciate the opportunity to have provided you with Dental Care. I hope you have been able to stay healthy during this Corona Virus pandemic. I and my family are fine. You can be assured your well being is of utmost importance at Summit Family Dental and that the best protective precautions possible are being implemented.

As for myself, after 42 years of dentistry it’s time to retire. The last four years of my career have been spent at Summit Family Dental Care and I must admit it has been some of the most fulfilling time I have had in Dentistry. The people there are patient oriented and are sincerely dedicated in providing the highest standard of care. They are conscientious, ethical and thorough and will always treat you in a way they would like to be treated. Rest assured any work in progress which I was providing will be completed with quality and detail. Your dental health and satisfaction remain most important.

Thanks Again,

Tom Hamilton, DDS

We are Excited to Welcome Dr. Erik Hill to Summit Family Dental Care!!

By | News | No Comments

Dr. Erik Hill was born and raised in nearby Grants Pass, OR and is excited to join the team at Summit Family Dental Care. He graduated from University of the Pacific, Arthur A Dugoni School of Dentistry in 2017 where he received extensive training in all areas of dentistry. Dr. Hill came to dentistry later than most as he pursued his dream of playing professional golf upon graduating from the university of California, Davis. After a few years of ups and downs on the golf course, he decided to retire the clubs and turn his focus to dentistry.

When he’s not working, Dr. Hill enjoys spending time with his family and friends. With the recent birth of their first child, he and his wife now enjoy many outdoor activities with daughter-in-tow including golfing, fishing, hiking, and traveling. Volunteering his dental services to those who are less fortunate or have limited access to care is also an important aspect of his career. He has worked with the Indian Health Service in Montana, and in rural communities of Jamaica and looks forward to servicing his local community of Medford.

We are so excited to announce the arrival of our new dentist associate, Dr. Patricia Suing!

By | News | No Comments

Dr. Suing spent eight years as a dental assistant, which allowed her to witness first hand the trusting relationship that is formed between a dentist and their patients. This inspired her to return to school to further pursue dentistry. She completed her undergraduate degree at OSU and attended OHSU School of Dentistry, where she received her doctorate.

Dr. Suing is a native of Bend Oregon, but spent many childhood summers visiting grandparents in Southern Oregon. Her and her husband, along with their two young kids, are thrilled to be in the area. They can’t wait to explore Medford, whether it’s hiking, camping, or just getting away from the Portland rain!

We are delighted to welcome her to the Summit Family Dental Care team and hope you will have the opportunity to meet her in the near future.

Thank you,

Ian M. Erickson DMD
Nicole Keck-Erickson DMD
