Dr. Erickson is a member of the American Board of Orthodontists, this means he underwent special training to provide the highest level of patient care. He and the talented staff at Red Dirt Orthodontics are extremely friendly, helpful and always there to make your experience with Invisalign or braces go smoothly!
You may choose to have braces to improve the look of your teeth and smile. Or you may need to have braces to correct a problem with your bite and keep your mouth and jaw healthy. No matter your reason for undergoing orthodontic treatment, there are some lifestyle changes that come with it. Rest assured, they are minimal and Dr. Erickson will be there for guidance and concerns throughout the duration of treatment!
The initial consultation visit is for you or your child and our orthodontist to determine if we’re able to help you with your orthodontic needs. We’ll complete a series of photographs, digital scans, x-rays, and an oral examination. After all of the data is gathered, the Treatment Coordinator and Dr. Erickson will meet with you in a separate consultation room to go over options available, treatment choices, and costs involved.
All new patient consultations are complimentary. We do not charge for any services until treatment is scheduled to begin. Your exam, x-rays, and models are all included in the cost of treatment. If you choose not to proceed with getting braces, you will not be billed.
At Red Dirt Orthodontics, we offer two convenient locations and flexible appointments with a board-certified orthodontic specialist. Dr. Erickson has extensive experience in corrective techniques for individuals with atypical oral anatomy.
All orthodontists are dentists, but not all dentists are orthodontist. An orthodontist has another 2-3 years of formal education in the field of bite correction therapies in addition to four years of dental school.
The length of treatment varies from one person to the next, not to mention it’s dependent upon the type of braces they are wearing. Most people require 12-18 months to complete their orthodontic therapy; some more, some less. We can provide you with a more precise estimate at the time of your individual examination.
During your examination, we’ll evaluate your oral anatomy and dental health to determine if you can proceed with treatment. In most cases, your teeth and gums will need to be free of cavities and disease.
Most orthodontic patients need to be seen for an adjustment or follow-up exam about every six weeks. For treatments like Invisalign (where the aligners are sent home in advance,) the appointments may only be every eight weeks.
Red Dirt Orthodontics is proud to provide their patients in Oklahoma City and Yukon Invisalign clear aligners. Invisalign is a series of clear, removable aligners that are used as an alternative to traditional metal braces. Each set is slightly modified to gently move your teeth into their new positions. The aligners are worn for around two weeks and then changed with a new set. As an orthodontist, Dr. Erickson loves them because there are so many advantages that come with wearing Invisalign!
Invisalign vs. Braces
Virtually invisible – Invisalign are clear aligners which are hardly noticeable, only you know you’re wearing them.
Treats simple to complex cases – This form of treatment is effective for a wide variety of cases, no matter how complex your case is. With technology like this we can make it work for you!
Comfortable– Invisalign trays are made from SmartTrack material that is smooth and comfortable to wear! No need to worry about broken brackets and wires poking your cheek that cause soreness and irritation!
Removable – These clear aligners are meant to be removed for eating, drinking and brushing. That way no food gets stuck in your aligner.
Less time- Requires less appointments and more time for you! Appointments with Dr. Erickson will be every 8-10 weeks.

At your first appointment, Dr. Erickson will determine if Invisalign is the right approach for you! He will sit down with you find out what aspects of your bite you want to address.
We then take a digital scan of your teeth using our iTero scanner which creates a precise 3D digital image of your teeth! After your scan is finished, Dr. Erickson will examine your bite and jaw anatomy.
After all the scans and examinations Dr. Erickson will review the cost and length of treatment for your individual case.
Your custom aligners will be made! As you wear each set of aligners, your teeth will gradually shift into place creating a straighter more attractive position.
How much does Invisalign Cost?
In most cases with Invisalign treatment your cost is comparable to the cost of traditional braces. Although with other medical treatments, Dr. Erickson can determine the cost for you based on your specific needs. There are many other factors that are included in the Invisalign cost such as your treatment goals, the difficulty of your case and how long you are in treatment for. Here at Red Dirt Orthodontics we currently offer many different payment plans, most insurance plans, and flexible financing options. This is to help any treatments not covered by your dental policy.
Invisalign is a great approach for some patients. Whether you are in Yukon, Oklahoma City or any of the surrounding areas, contact Red Dirt Orthodontics to schedule a complimentary consultation to see if Invisalign is right for you! (405) 227-0054.

My son just got braces today at Red Dirt Orthodontics, and I was very pleased with the whole process, as was my son. Dr. Erickson is really awesome. Very kind, funny, personable, and calming. He welcomed questions throughout the visit. His staff was also just as friendly and helpful. The dental assistant was amazing as well. She seemed to really care about making sure my son was comfortable and explained in detail everything he needed to know about the care of his new braces. We knew nothing about the process of getting braces, but they made it easy. I highly recommend Red Dirt Orthodontics!

My son was so excited to get his braces today. Everyone was so kind and the office is geared towards children. Highest rating in my book!!!
My son is autistic and has some serious overbite and issues with his jaw being out of line. We had our consultation today at Red Dirt Orthodontics and his tech and Dr, Erickson were absolutely amazing! They answered all of my questions, and even more important, they made my son feel so comfortable that he was sad they didn’t put his braces on today. Love this place!
My daughter LOVES Red Dirt Orthodontics. Great doctor & very friendly nurses! They have hours that should be able to fit anyone’s needs. I can’t recommend them enough!
