Meet the Team
Annika – Lead Hygienist
My name is Annika and I am Dr. Stickney’s Hygienist in the office. I’ve been a hygienist for about 11 years and have been involved in the dental field for 17 years. I started out as a dental assistant and worked in several dental clinics while going to school. I received my Bachelor of Science in Dental Hygiene from Northeastern University and went to Summa Cum Laude Forsyth School for Dental Hygienists and that is where I got my certificate in Advanced Dental Hygiene. My job is to work with the doctor in helping our clients attain and maintain optimal oral health. One of my goals here is to continue learning from Dr. Stickney’s vast experience and knowledge. I also have great sympathy and empathy for those with dental fears, and I would like all of our patients to look forward to their appointments here. Outside of work I have many hobbies. I worked as a goldsmith’s apprentice for 2 years and am working on getting a home studio to continue working on creating jewelry with lost wax casting. I’m also looking forward to summer to explore the mountains by hiking. I’m excited about planting a vegetable and herb garden; we grew only rocks and sagebrush in Tahoe, where I’m from. And I’m also restoring the first bicycle my mother bought when she came to the US in 1968.

When I was growing up, I had always followed my dad, who was a handyman, to his work. This had grew my interest in making small crafts using my hands.
