Hello! I am Cindy Mikich, formerly known as Cindy Riffle, and am pleased to be a member of the Area Dental Associates team. It is wonderful to work among other dental professionals who share the same practice philosophy as me; to provide high quality dental care in a welcoming, comfortable environment where we listen to our patients and respect their needs and goals. If it’s been many years since your last dental exam, you will never feel judged. We are simply happy you came to see us so that we can help!
I began my career in dentistry as a dental hygienist and worked part time while I attended dental school, gaining valuable real-world experience. I graduated from Marquette University with a Bachelor of Science in Dental Hygiene and then earned my Doctor of Dental Surgery at Marquette University School of Dentistry. Go Golden Eagles!
Throughout my career I have practiced in a variety of settings, including private practice and community health. I also was a full-time clinical professor at Marquette University School of Dentistry for several years. One of my passions is mentoring students and new graduates; helping them to grow into skilled and compassionate professionals.
I have lived in southeastern Wisconsin all my life. I have two wonderful adult children, one that lives here in Wisconsin and one in Washington. In my free time, I spend time riding my horse, walking my dogs, and enjoying the outdoors as much as possible. I also love sports! I grew up watching the Packers, Brewers and Bucks with my family and have passed that interest on to my kids.
I look forward to meeting you and helping you achieve a healthy smile! We are here to provide you reasons to smile!
