Dr. Erin Brown
Erin L. Brown, D.D.S.

Meet The Dentist

When Dr. Brown was thirteen years old, she received the news that she had dreaded… she had cavities! When her hometown dentist in Ilion, NY, however, treated her with a gentle touch, a confident manner and a caring bedside manner, Dr. Brown knew that she also wanted to be a dentist one day.

Dr. Brown never swayed from her path in pursing what she has always felt is her calling. After receiving her Bachelor’s Degree in Biology from Hartwick College, Dr. Brown attended the State University of New York at Buffalo, School of Dental Medicine to receive her Doctorate in Dental Surgery. Dr. Brown performed a one-year residency at Buffalo General Hospital before accepting a position as the Chief Dental Officer with the Seneca Nation Health System in Salamanca, NY.

During her tenure with public health, Dr. Brown hosted dozens of dental students, giving her a deep understanding of her responsibility as an educator in being a dental professional.    In 2015, Dr. Brown, her husband, Andy, along with their two children, Amorin and Alden, could not ignore their affinity for their families and their hometown region and transitioned into the dental practice of Dr. Myron Morgan. Dr. Brown feels extremely satisfied to have the ability to not only live her dream, but to provide services to her beloved community members.

Dr. Brown is a member of the American Dental Association, New York State Dental Association, Fifth District Dental Society, and the Oneida-Herkimer County Dental Association.
