Seth J. Stockton, DMD
Dr. Seth Stockton was born in Albuquerque, NM. He attended the University of California – San Diego and received his Bachelor of Science degree in Biomedical Engineering. He then went on to attend Nova Southeastern University School of Dental Medicine in Fort Lauderdale, FL where he received his Doctorate in Dental Medicine.
While a student, he met Dr. Erin Stockton, and they were married in Wisconsin one week after graduating dental school. Upon completion of dental school, Dr. Seth was commissioned into the United States Air Force as a Captain. He served the military at Offutt Air Force Base in Omaha, NE where he received his Advanced Education in General Dentistry. He was then stationed at Dyess Air Force Base in Abilene, TX and completed a short course in Periodontics at Lackland Air Force Base in San Antonio, TX.
He and Dr. Erin welcomed their first daughter, Ryan, in 2013 and decided it was time to get some roots, so they moved back to Albuquerque, NM in July 2014. Later that year, they welcomed their second daughter, Avery. Now that Drs. Seth and Erin have settled down in Albuquerque, they enjoy spending time with family, tackling new projects with their home, exploring New Mexico and making occasional trips back to Wisconsin to visit Dr. Erin’s family.
Erin E. Stockton, DMD
Originally from Milwaukee, Wisconsin, Dr. Erin Stockton received her Bachelor of Science degree from Marquette University in the Biological Sciences. She minored in Theater Arts. She then attended Nova Southeastern University School of Dental Medicine in Fort Lauderdale, Florida where she received her Doctorate in Dental Medicine. It was during dental school that she met her husband, Dr. Seth Stockton, and they married one week after graduation.
Dr. Erin went on to complete a General Practice Residency at the University of Nebraska Medical Center in Omaha, NE and at the Veterans Administration Nebraska-Western Iowa. From there, she and Dr. Seth moved to Abilene, TX where Dr. Seth was stationed at Dyess Air Force Base and Dr. Erin worked in private practice.
In July 2014, they moved to Albuquerque, NM to be reunited with family. Drs. Seth and Erin now live in Albuquerque where they are raising their two daughters, Ryan and Avery. They enjoy spending their time with family, taking on new projects with their house, exploring New Mexico and making occasional trips back to Wisconsin to visit Dr. Erin’s family. Dr. Erin has accumulated over 350 credits in continuing education since graduating from dental school and is working toward achieving her fellowship in the Academy of General Dentistry. She has served in the House of Delegates for the New Mexico Dental Association and has volunteered her time for the New Mexico Mission of Mercy.
When patients ask why she became a dentist, Dr. Erin explains that it has been her life mission to bring light into the world, to help people in need, and to take care of others. In dentistry, there are a lot of fears, and she works hard to help patients feel comfortable getting the care they need.
