Dr Leah Implant Consultation

“Hi, I’m Dr. Leah Hickson. I love helping my patients feel empowered and informed when it comes to their dental health.”

I was introduced to dentistry as a profession in 1989 when I went to work as an assistant in an orthodontic practice. Then I became a certified expanded function dental assistant and worked through undergrad until I started dental school in 2003. 

In 2007, I purchased a practice of my own in Eugene with the intention of making the dental experience a calm and relaxing one for patients. After 10 years of solo practice, I decided it would be much more fun to work with another practitioner. 

I joined the Timberhill Dental team in 2019. Since then, I’ve found outstanding mentorship from Dr. Black and exceptional support from the team. 

I love the “high-touch and high-tech” approach at Timberhill Dental. It’s a really unique way of making people feel comfortable at the dentist and it shows in our patients’ smiles!

Have been working in Dentistry for over 30 years.

My Dental Philosophy

I believe in “systems not symptoms.” That means I consider the health of the whole person rather than treating problems in individual teeth.

This approach is what I call comprehensive dental care and focuses on resolving the root cause of dental health issues.

I really enjoy educating my patients, providing them with options, and helping them make the best decision for their dental health.

Family & Fun

I’m a native Oregonian and grew up in Eugene. Pleasant Hill is still my home and I love living here with my husband and my Labrador. 

When I’m not practicing dentistry, I enjoy golfing, biking, traveling, camping, and fishing!

What Our Patients Say

When it comes to dental work I have some serious anxiety, so I am always thankful for the calming, spa-like atmosphere of Timberhill Dental. They use the most modern, state-of-the-art equipment available in dentistry. They offer paraffin wax hand treatments to relax you while you get your teeth cleaned! Timberhill Dental is as good as it gets!

– Lindy O.

The Timberhill Dental staff are excellent. They are incredibly welcoming and everyone was friendly and outgoing. They even spent extra time to explain procedures to me. It was an awesome experience!

– Sydney Laudon

“I can’t say enough about how great my experience was at Timberhill Dental. There are so many little touches (hot towel when you’re finished, warm paraffin hand treatments during cleanings, etc.) that make Timberhill stand out. I really felt like they all genuinely cared about me and my teeth and my experience in their office.

– Shasta Barnes
