The office primarily serves Carol Stream, Illinois, and its surrounding areas – Wheaton, Glen Ellyn, Winfield, Bloomingdale, Glendale Heights and West Chicago. In addition, patients have traveled from other states seeking treatment.
A diplomate of the American Association of Oral Maxillofacial Surgeons, Dr. Erickson is actively involved with a number of professional organizations, in particular, the Cleft Lip and Palate—Craniofacial Association. In addition, he lectures nationally and internationally and regularly attends continuing education courses in an effort to keep abreast of the most recent oral and maxillofacial surgery (OMS) developments and techniques. He also holds certifications in advanced cardiac life support and pediatric advanced life support.
Dr. Erickson earned his bachelor's degree from the University of Washington and his dental degree from the University of Washington School of Dentistry, where he graduated with the highest honors. He completed a general practice residency at Mount Zion Hospital in San Francisco and his OMS residency at Northwestern University of Chicago, where he served as the chief resident of the OMS program.
He was past director of the oral and maxillofacial surgery residency program at Northwestern University/Northwestern Memorial Hospital and chief of the OMS pediatric division at Lurie's Children's Hospital. He currently maintains hospital privileges at Northwestern Medicine Central DuPage Hospital in Winfield, Illinois.
"After evaluating the advantages of partnering with USOSM, including the infrastructure they have assembled to support their partner practices, as well as their elite oral and maxillofacial surgery partners, there was never a question as to what was and is the best course for my practice," said Dr. Erickson.
