Dominique (Niki)

Dental Intern

Niki received her Bachelor of Science Degree from the University of St. Thomas. She is focusing on her dream of becoming a Dentist. She is presently doing her dental internship at her Dad’s office, and we are so glad she is here. "Niki is a Jack of All Trades," and a tremendous help in the office.

Niki has helped with medical mission trips from 2007-2012, and she also worked in Dr. Hutchins’ dental office. She will tell you she wants to gain as much experience and knowledge, as possible, before starting dental school.

In Niki’s spare time she enjoys dancing, watching her favorite TV shows, learning new things and skydiving. Where did that come from? We cannot say Mom is especially happy about the skydiving hobby. She has also been known to occasionally beat her father in a heated Chess game. Niki is full of brains and beauty… inside and out. We think she gets the beauty part from her Mom.

It has always been a dream for Niki to follow in her father’s footsteps and pursue a career in dentistry. I guess you could say she was born and raised loving teeth!
