Thanks for taking the time to visit our little spot on the web. I’m Dr. Eric, co-owner and Dentist at Altoona Smiles Family and Cosmetic Dentistry. On a wing and a prayer we opened our door for business in 2011. Since that time I’ve been delighted to have so many new faces and personalities through our doors, and honored to have patients be willing to travel to us.
I graduated from the University of Iowa College of Dentistry in 2003 with a Doctorate of Dental Surgery, and my first day in practice was anxiously waiting and pacing for my license to be assigned while patients had arrived for their appointments. Looking back I can laugh now and be thankful for everything leading up to the present. I met my wonderful wife Angie while we were attending Central College. Married in a blizzard in 2000, we were blessed with the birth of our son Tytus in 2008. As a family we enjoy visiting friends and relatives and occasionally find time to cheer on the Hawkeyes too.
Being a dentist is a great privilege, and I look forward to helping patients for many years to come. It’s rewarding to work with a healthy mix of people and perspectives and I truly enjoy the variety my career brings. We enjoy working with kids, teens, and adults alike and provide a wide range of treatment options. Our team is here for the shy and scared person who’s seeking out their first positive dental experience as well as the fun-loving soul who’s looking to have a smile to match their inner self. Whether you have your smile examined regularly, or if it’s even been a few years since your last visit we’ll be happy to serve you. Thank you again for considering us, and we’ll look forward to your call….
