Dr. Erin Gustafson

Erin Gustafson was born and raised in northeast Texas, relocating to Lubbock to complete her undergraduate degree in Zoology at Texas Tech University. She then attained her DDS degree from the University of Texas Dental Branch at Houston, where she held several offices in the Texas Association of Women Dentists and served as president of the TAWD student chapter.

Since graduating, Dr. Gustafson has completed continuing education courses in cosmetic dentistry, sedation dentistry, and orthodontics. While practicing general dentistry as an associate in Cleveland, Texas, she learned that the best doctor-patient relationships are based on trust, skill, and above all, good communication. That’s why she takes the time to get to know each patient, thoroughly discussing his or her individual needs and goals for oral health. In 2012 Dr. Gustafson graduated with her fellowship in the Academy of General Dentistry, to obtain the status Dr. Gustafson had to complete more than 500 hours of educational courses and pass a very comprehensive exam. When Dr. Gustafson received this award she joined an elite group of less than 5 percent of all General Dentists. She is a member of the American Dental Association (ADA), the Texas Dental Association (TDA), the Academy of General Dentistry (AGD), IAO International Association of Orthodontics.

In her free time, Dr. Gustafson enjoys being outdoors, snow skiing, and spending time with her friends and family, which includes her three wonderful children, Kennedy, Gage, and Zane. She looks forward to getting to know you and your family, too!
