Meet Our Team
Jeanna, Office Manager
I have worked in the dental field for the last 20 years, and enjoy caring for patients. I started my dental career while still in high school in California. I have had the opportunity to live in Minnesota, and now I have found myself in the wonderful state of Oregon working at Dr. Hikade’s office. I have been married since 2001, and have two wonderful boys. I love my family and the adventures we find ourselves in on the weekends. I look forward to meeting and helping you care for your dental needs.
Alice, Insurance/Patient Coordinator
I started my dental career over 20 years ago as Dr. Hikade’s dental assistant and eventually transitioned into the insurance coordinator position. My experience has enabled me to help our patients in all aspects of their dental needs. I feel very fortunate to be a part of such a caring team of outstanding dental professionals. I look forward to meeting you soon!
Cindy, Dental Hygienist
I was born in Alaska and raised in both Alaska and Oregon. Although I graduated from Dental Hygiene school in 1982, my real education has come from 30 plus years of experience. I've worked with Dr Dick Hikade for 25yrs., the doctors and staff here are very conscientious and caring. In our office we have the highest standards of care. In my spare time I love to travel and spend time with family and friends. Looking forward to meeting you, Cindy.
I am a native Oregonian, born and raised in the greater Portland area. I graduated from the Mt. Hood Community College Dental Hygiene Program in 1993 after spending a few years studying at Portland State University. I have been privileged enough to work with Dr. Hikade and an amazing staff for over 2 decades. It has also been a pleasure taking care of wonderful patients that have become dear friends in that time. Because of that, I have the unique experience to take care of three generations of families. What a blessing! My children and I live in Oregon City where we enjoy its rich history, fabulous library and lots of adventures. Added bonus – there are two Dutch Bros within walking distance and great hills for many a productive walk!
I’m an Oregon country girl through and through. You can often find me hiking, riding dirt bikes or gardening, but that doesn’t keep me from my true love of working. I’ve been a tooth nerd for the last 10 years, and a hygienist since 2007. I am truly blessed to have the wonderful doctors, staff and patients to work with at Sunnyside Dentistry.
I was born and raised in Southern Oregon, but I have been in Portland since 1997 where I attended Portland State University and Mt. Hood Community College. I have been a hygienist since 2002 and have been working with Dr. Hikade since 2006. In my spare time I love going for long runs, or taking my kids to the park… anything outside.
I was born and raised here. I have worked in the dental field since 1998. I am very fortunate to be part of the team at Sunnyside Dentistry. My family and I live in Happy Valley, and in my spare time I enjoy spending time with them.
Katie, Dental Assistant
Hello! I’ve been a Dental Assistant here at Sunnyside Dentistry since 2012. I’m lucky to work with such amazing doctors and co-workers who all provide such excellent care for our patients! I’ve been married since 2010, and we have two beautiful little daughters together. I enjoy spending free time with my little family and love being outdoors. Come in and see us – we look forward to taking great care of you!
Krissy, Re-Care Coordinator
I was raised in Sandy, Oregon and would not trade it for the world. I enjoy being outside and love the rain. Oregon is my home. I have been in the dental field since 2011. My mom was in the dental field, so I was highly passionate and entered the field as a dental assistant right out of high school. I eventually found my way to the front office and I absolutely love my job! I am so excited to meet and see everyone at their next visit to Sunnyside Dentistry.
Nicole, Dental Assistant
My journey started in a small town in Indiana. I never would have imagined life brining me to such a beautiful state to call home. Raising my son here is a dream I didn’t know I had. I have now been in Dentistry for almost 10 years! I’m so blessed to be a part of such an amazing team!
