About Dr Southers

Dr. Erik Southers

Dr. Erik Southers, DDS, MS

When he isn’t creating straight, attractive smiles, Dr. Southers enjoys spending time with his family. He stays active by surfing, snowboarding and playing beach volleyball and basketball.

"I became interested in the field of dentistry, specifically orthodontics, because I wanted to be able to help patients of all ages achieve healthy, beautiful smiles that can improve their self-image and increase their confidence. Ever since I started practicing, I have made a commitment to provide patients with the highest quality of care possible. I use only the best, proven orthodontic solutions and recommend them based on my patients’ individual needs. Equally important, I always provide patients with the focused, unhurried care they deserve. I enjoy getting to know my patients over the course of their treatment, which makes their visits a fun and positive experience."

"I always keep in mind that orthodontic treatment is usually new to patients. Because of this, I take the time to explain everything to my patients and answer their questions so they are fully informed and confident with their care."
