She moved to Washington to further her education and graduated with her second degree in dental hygiene from Columbia Basin College in 2011. Erika thrives on learning and growing and takes continuing education courses each year to enhance her knowledge and skills necessary to provide comprehensive care.
Erika is dedicated to three important things when it comes to her patients and that is to provide excellent care in a friendly environment where patient comfort and peace of mind are prioritized; to educate and empower her patients to create long-term healthy habits; and to build a genuine and trusting relationship with each patient so that each visit is positive and fun.
Erika resides in the area with her husband Johnny and their two young children, Nyla and Matua. She is committed to living a positive, healthy and happy lifestyle. In her spare time she enjoys exercising, hiking, snowboarding, being adventurous with new food and places, spending time with family and friends and living by the motto Carpe Diem!
