McDonough Orthodontics is committed to giving our patients the highest quality orthodontic service in Murray, Utah. Our team members have been exceptionally trained, have many years of experience, and are super friendly! And now, I am proud to announce our newest team member, Dr. Erick Lund.
Dr. Erik Lund was born and raised in Cache Valley, Utah. After high school, he joined the Army and was deployed to Iraq, where he was awarded the Bronze Star and Purple Heart for his service. After returning home from his service, he received his bachelor’s degree from Utah State University and graduated Cum Laude.
Dr. Lund offers a uniquely comprehensive perspective. Unlike most orthodontists, after four years of dental school at Midwestern University, AZ, he furthered his education and completed an additional residency in Advanced Education in General Dentistry. He practiced as a successful general dentist with this added expertise for three years. He was then selected for the University of Louisville’s renowned residency program to become an Orthodontic Specialist.
His unique and comprehensive skill set expanded as an Orthodontist for the US Army in Europe. Dr. Lund teamed up with Oral Surgeons to treat the most complex cases of military children, teens, and soldiers.
He fully retired from the US Army in 2019.
He has been married for 15 years to his sweet wife, Mandy. Together they have three children.
Dr. Lund was a missionary in Sweden, where he learned to speak Swedish. And while he is fond of Europe from his days in Sweden and Germany, he is glad to call Utah his home once again.
He enjoys mountain biking, playing sports with his family, a good movie, and playing the piano for recreation. And finally, he was recently featured in an “I’m a Mormon” ad.
Please give a warm welcome to Dr. Erik Lund!
