My experience at Holladay Dental Studio has always been great. Dr. Ericksen is always very professional but personable. For anything major, he carefully explains the procedure, options, and alternatives before proceeding. The implants he did for me look and feel great. He’s now working on crowns for me.
Fast, friendly and impressive service. The assistants were helpful and efficient. Dr. Ericksen was professional and easy going. I never feel nervous going to the dentist now because I know how skilled Dr. Ericksen is at his work. Insurance is a breeze with this office and I love their flexible hours so I can go after work. Highly recommended.
