Sarah graduated from Oregon State University in 2003 with a B.S. in Fisheries Science. Then she decided to go back to school to pursue Dental Hygiene at Austin Community College in Austin, Texas.
Sarah graduated from the Dental Hygiene program in 2009. Being a dental hygienist was a natural fit for Sarah because she loves getting to know patients and helping them achieve better dental health. Her goal is to provide gentle and thorough care to all her patients.
Sarah tries to educate without lectures and aims to make coming to the dentist a pleasurable experience. Sarah grew up in Lincoln City, Oregon. After college in Corvallis, she moved to Austin, Texas for 9 years and moved back to Oregon a couple of years ago to be closer to family. Sarah and her husband Kyle have 2 young children, Natalie and Lucas. In her free time, she likes running and spending time with her family.
Ingrid is a native Oregonian! She grew up in Canby and enjoyed her small-town upbringing. After high school, Ingrid attended Pacific Union College located in Napa, California. After completing her prerequisites there (and meeting her husband), she returned to Portland and obtained her Dental Hygiene degree from Carrington College.
Dental Hygiene has been such a rewarding career for Ingrid. Educating patients can be made fun and interactive! She believes improvements and sustained oral care should be celebrated. Ingrid also enjoys making patients feel at ease with any procedure. The team at DDA makes all the difference!
Outside the office, Ingrid enjoys playing indoor soccer, riding bikes, and exploring the PNW! Ingrid and her husband enjoy traveling, and hanging out with their Corgi (Marley), and their daughters Amelia and Selah.
Hello! My name is Sydney Keister, and am a native of Portland, OR. I reside with my husband Mike and two daughters, Kendall (15) and Kourtney (12).
I have spent most of my hygiene career at DDA during the years from 2001-2016. I took some time off to spend more time with my girls, but as they have gained more independence, I am back at a very special dental practice and will be here to continue to treat our patients with the highest level of care.
I look so forward to meeting our newest patients and our loyal long-term patients here at Downtown Dental Associates!
