When Dr. Mikkelson was a little girl, she wanted to be a doctor, a ballerina, AND a fashion designer. She finally found the perfect combination of science, art, and fun in pediatric dentistry. She completed her Bachelors of Science at Oregon State University Honors College and went on to pursue a Doctor of Dental Medicine degree at Oregon Health & Science University. It was no surprise that Dr. Mikkelson volunteered for all of the extra shifts available in the pediatric clinic in dental school and while completing a general practice residency at Hennepin County Medical Center in Minnesota.

 

After practicing in Oregon for several years, she continued her education with a residency in pediatric dentistry at the University of Washington and also obtained a Masters of Science in Dentistry. Her thesis research focused on the transition from pediatric to adult dental care for patients with special health care needs.

 

In her spare time, Dr. Mikkelson is most likely to be found having dance parties and crafting sessions with her husband and their young daughter, working in the garden, or tucked away reading a good book.
