Sierra, Registered Dental Hygienist
Sierra joined our practice in July, 2017 after completing her Bachelor of Science in Hygiene at University of Pacific in Stockton. She worked in our office as part of her ROP training in high school, where she shadowed one of our hygienists. It is because of her positive experiences here at Jackson Creek Dental Group, along with the exposure to dental hygiene and the true inner workings of the dental office, that she decided to move forward with hygiene school. Sierra is excited to develop one-on- one relationships with her patients and be able to provide them with the best dental care possible.
Born and raised right here in Ione, Sierra and her family are long time residents of Amador County. When she’s not at work, you might find her fishing in one of our nearby fresh water lakes for bass, or doing volunteer work with Camp Out for Cancer, the Ione Community Blood Drive and CDA Cares. Sierra might also be cuddling with her German Shorthair Lulu, who used to be an awesome hunting dog but has become a couch potato in her older years.
