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!

After leaving UT, she moved back to Houston to attend the University of Texas School of Dentistry where she received her DDS degree. After graduation from UTSD, she was granted acceptance to an Advanced Education in General Dentistry residency program. She currently lives in Houston and tries to spend as much of her spare time as possible with her friends, family, and Airedale terrier, Ellie. She looks forward to meeting you and your family soon!

Stacy Johnson, RDH
I graduated hygiene school at Bee County College in South Texas and have been a hygienist for eighteen years. I am a Mom and stepmom and have 3 grand-daughters. My growing family has awakened the crafty side of me so lately I have been spending my free time crocheting, sewing and whatever else I can learn off of you tube. It is my privilege to be a part of the Praise and Worship team at my church; I love to sing. I find great joy in delivering a message of hope and truth through music. Our family has a love for missions. The majority of our time is spent in various ministries achieving this goal.
The favorite aspect of my career is having the opportunity to meet new people and work with them to achieve their goals in oral wellness. I love to see and hear a patient's reaction of how good they feel and to see their confidence grow as they show off their new improved smile. I think all people deserve to be treated with respect and compassion no matter the circumstance.
I look forward to meeting you soon.
