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 Medford with her husband and 3 very energetic kids. She attended OHSU school of dentistry and constantly participates in advanced continuing education courses. Both her and her husband enjoy practicing dentistry in their hometown community. One of Dr. Keck’s favorite things about dentistry is building long lasting relationships with her patients, while at the same time improving their health and smiles. She understands many people get extreme anxiety when faced with dental appointments, so she is committed to providing a comfortable experience to her patients. Dr. Keck offers many sedation options and is one of the few dentists in our area who can perform IV sedation. She is also passionate about giving back to our community and is involved with local school and community programs, as well as several organizations to benefit children with disabilities.

Dr. Hamilton

Dr. Tom Hamilton, DDS, is enjoying working with Summit Family Dental Care.  After having worked in private practice in Eastern Oregon for 28 years, he moved to the Rogue Valley in 2011.  He attended college at the University of California, Berkeley and Montana State University, and went to Dental School at the University of Minnesota.  He is proud to have served in the Military as a Dentist for 3 years before beginning his private practice.  Dr. Hamilton has taught in the Dental Hygiene Department at the Oregon Institute of Technology and was instrumental in establishing the  High School Health Occupations programs for the Klamath County and City School Districts.

Dr. Tom enjoys a variety of outdoor activities.  Amongst his credentials, he has a degree in Fish and Wildlife and enjoys fishing, hunting and hiking. He and his wife, Lori, live in Jacksonville and particularly enjoy the summer concerts at the Britt Festival.  Tom and Lori have four children, all of whom are now grown of course, and three grandchildren.

As well as Family Time, other activities they enjoy together are: Rafting, Sailing, Snorkeling and travel to warm places occasionally when it’s cold. It’s a pleasure to live here after decades of ice and snow in Eastern Oregon.

Dr. Suing

Dr. Suing, DMD 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!
