Dr Erin Estep is a Board Certified Pediatric Dentist. She grew-up on the Oregon Coast in Newport. She was a competitive swimmer throughout her youth and is an avid sports fan. She met her husband while in dental school, the brother of one of her classmates. They married in 2012 and have two boys, Jacoby 6 and Ollie 4. Dr Erin spends her time walking/running with their 8 year old yellow lab, Mr Beau. She enjoys quilting, collecting wine and spending time with her friends. Most weekends she’s in Mom-mode, shuffling her kids from one sport to another and countless birthday parties! She truly treats her patients like they were one of her own, always finding the best option for your child.
Dr Erin graduated from Newport High School in 1999. She then went on to obtain her undergraduate degree from Western Oregon University in 2003 with a BA in Biology and minors in Chemistry and English. From 2006-2010 she attended dental school at Oregon Health and Science University (OHSU). While in school she received a scholarship from the National Health Service Corps that paid for her education in exchange for working 4 years in underserved populations throughout the country. Upon graduation, she received two prestigious awards from her professors: the Oregon Academy of Pediatric Dentistry student of her graduating class and The American Association of Public Health Dentistry. Her time in the National Health Service took her to Butte, Montana for two years and then Redding, California for 2 additional years. During this time she knew that specializing in pediatrics was the right career path for her. She went to a two year residency at OHSU and Doernbecher Children’s Hospital, graduating in 2016. During her second year there she was named Chief Resident, an honor that meant a lot of her.
Dr Erin spent her first four years out of dental school working for the National Health Service Corps in remote areas of Montana and California in a public health setting through community health centers. Here she was able to use all of her general dental skills and really enjoyed the challenge of it all. She realized during this time how much she really loved working with children. After her commitment, she applied for the pediatric dentistry residency and was accepted into OHSU. Upon graduation, she worked for a corporate dental office and a private practice. Although she enjoyed both experiences, her husband encouraged her and has been a huge supporter of her pursuing her dream of opening her own practice.
