Erika has worked in our office since the day we opened the doors in 1995. She loves the close relationships she’s established with every patient. The goal when we started Prestonwood Park Dental Care was to treat patients like our family, and Erika thinks they have truly achieved this goal. She loves having the opportunity to work closely with just a few patients a day, making them feel right at home. Originally from Japan, Erika moved to Plano with her loving husband, Dr. Woodard, in 1989. The couple are the proud parents of 3 sons, and the family has one beloved dog. In her spare time, she enjoys swimming, walking, skiing, and cooking. She has taught Japanese on the weekends for nearly thirty years. Her long term patients have helped her learn how Texans speak English and shared some great American cooking recipes.
