Dr. Hickle has completed many continuing education courses at the prestigious Las Vegas Institute for Advanced Dental Studies (LVI), where she furthered her education in treating patients with TMD/jaw joint problems using neuromuscular dentistry techniques. She has also been trained in cutting-edge techniques for smile makeovers and full-mouth reconstruction by top dentists with international reputations.
Dr. Hickle’s extensive training in treating obstructive sleep apnea enables her to use several techniques to help reposition the lower jaw forward during sleep, which opens the patient’s airway and restores his or her ability to obtain restful sleep. She takes great pride in knowing she has helped many patients who suffer from OSA live longer, healthier lives.
To assist her patients in achieving a truly stunning smile, Dr. Hickle is also certified in the use of Six Month Smiles®, an alternative for adults who do not want to have to wear metal braces or aligners for years. The tooth-colored brackets and white-coated wires are barely visible and gently straighten the teeth that show when you smile. Dr. Hickle has handled numerous Six Month Smiles cases with great success.
