Dr. Michelle “Ski” Skierkowski

Born and raised in Michigan, Dr. Ski attended the University of Michigan School of Dentistry to receive her Doctor of Dental Surgery degree. After two years of practice as a general dentist, she went on to complete a two and a half year residency in pediatric dentistry and Master of Science degree in 2009, also from the University of Michigan. She decided to leave behind the Great Lakes eight years ago to venture to the Pacific Northwest and make Portland her permanent home with her husband and two young sons. She continues to explore all that Oregon has to offer, especially the phenomenal food and craft industry. Running in the Hood to Coast race is now a yearly tradition to help stay in shape after all this great food!

Dr. Ski has a special interest in infant oral health and early preventive dental care. She believes the foundation for a positive lifelong dental experience can be built through personalized education with a whole-body approach for each unique child. She appreciates the time it takes to build these lasting relationships with our families and looks forward to each visit!
