Welcome to Erskine Family Dentistry

The woman’s touch in family dentistry.

At Erskine Family Dentistry, we believe that a healthy smile is a beautiful thing. Dr. Susan Cocquyt and Dr. Lori Risser, along with our team, provide the knowledge, experience, and encouragement you deserve to achieve your brightest, best smile. With compassionate, family-oriented care and cutting-edge technology, we place your health as our top priority.

At our practice, we are committed to providing dental care that improves the overall health of our patients. This includes regular preventive oral hygiene, comprehensive restorative dentistry, and airway and sleep dentistry. Additionally, we offer advanced treatments for temporomandibular joint (TMJ) disorders, such as Disclusion Time Reduction (DTR) Therapy. By using technology like computerized bite analysis and EMG, we can identify the underlying cause of facial muscle hyperfunction and provide targeted therapy to alleviate pain and discomfort in the jaw, face, and neck.

We prioritize listening to our patients, respecting their unique situation, and working with them to determine the best approach to meet their needs and desires. Your first step toward a healthier, more beautiful smile is to contact our South Bend dental office to schedule an appointment. The sooner your call, the sooner you’ll be on your way to a radiant smile you’ll love to share!


Single-visit crowns use advanced technology for restoring damaged teeth, all of which can be completed in a single visit to Erskine Family Dentistry.

Facial Pain

When the temporomandibular joint doesn’t function properly, the limited movement and discomfort that results could lead to Temporomandibular Joint Disorder, or TMD.


Airway dentistry, making sure patients are oxygenated when they’re sleeping, is one example of how we contribute to the overall improved health of our patients.


Adjustments to occlusal (bite) force and jaw movement can alleviate symptoms and pain from headaches or TMD.


Botox addresses the “trigger points” that may lead to debilitating migraines, headaches, and chronic facial pain.
