Dr. Erin Phillips
Being a Pediatric Dentist has fulfilled a lifelong goal for Dr. Erin Fuson Phillips. In the third grade, her childhood pediatric dentist sparked a love of dentistry and from that moment on, she knew she wanted to be a dentist!
Dr. Phillips' favorite part of dentistry is building a positive relationship with her patients in a fun and caring atmosphere. She loves teaching children how to care for their teeth.
Dr. Erin Phillips graduated with honors from Indiana University with a degree in Biology. She completed her dental training at Indiana University School of Dentistry, followed by a pediatric dental residency at Cincinnati Children's Hospital Medical Center. Starting with her specialty-training residency, Dr. Phillips has had the opportunity to care for children with a variety of dental needs throughout her career. This has included extensive training for emergency/trauma management, children with special medical needs, medically compromised patients, conscious sedation and dental treatment performed under general anesthesia. Dr. Phillips has staff privileges at Peyton Manning Children’s Hospital at St. Vincent and St. Vincent Carmel where she performs dental treatment on patients under general anesthesia when necessary.
Dr. Phillips is a Diplomate of the American Board of Pediatric Dentistry, and a member of the American College of Dentists, American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry, American Dental Association, Indiana Dental Association and Indianapolis District Dental Society. She is also a member, and past president, of the Indiana Society of Pediatric Dentistry. Dr. Phillips has been listed on Indianapolis Monthly's Top Dentists rankings multiple years.
Her other love in life is her family! She and her husband, Adrian, have two sons in elementary school (Quinn and Grant). Two pets complete their family: Sullivan, a Pembrooke Welsh Corgi named after Dr. Phillips’ hometown, and Jasper, a very large and loving cat they adopted from Humane Society of Indianapolis.
