Dick Hikade, DDS
I was born and raised in Milwaukie, Wisconsin. I attended the University of Wisconsin for my undergraduate studies and received my Doctorate of Dental Surgery from Marquette University in 1978.
It was during the Christmas break of my senior year of dental school, that I flew out to the Pacific Northwest to check out Portland. I was quickly drawn in by the natural beauty of Oregon. I enthusiastically decided to make Portland my new home.
My wife and I have proudly raised two daughters. My oldest daughter is a 6th grade math and science teacher in the Portland area. My youngest daughter decided to follow in her dad’s footsteps and has become a dentist. My greatest joy is now spending time with my three grandchildren. Otherwise, I am outdoors relishing in the beauty of our great state.
Brooke Hikade-Wyatt, DMD
An Oregonian through and through, I grew up in Clackamas, attended University of Oregon for my undergraduate studies and later earned my Doctorate of Medical Dentistry at Oregon Health Science University in Portland.
I joined the practice in 2008, and couldn’t have found a better fit. The staff at Sunnyside Dentistry have been loyal employees some for as long as 30 years. Working alongside my father, who has been in practice for 34 years, has been an extremely rewarding experience.
You might see me running around Happy Valley with my daughters in tow. Otherwise, I am trying a new restaurant or hiking a new trail. This is my neighborhood. I grew up in Clackamas and have enjoyed getting my dental career underway right here at home.
