Sue Hickey

Sue joined our staff in 2010 with 35 years of experience in dentistry and was the just right fit for us when our practice growth made it necessary to expand our administrative staff.  Her attention to detail and her commitment to look after our patient’s individual needs makes her just the right addition to our staff.

Sue’s primary responsibility is to coordinate our Continuing Care Program.  In this role she assists each of our patients in scheduling their regular dental cleanings and periodontal maintenance appointments. You will be amazed at how skilled she is at being able to accommodate your personal scheduling requirements.  Don’t be surprised if you receive a phone call or an email/text from Sue!  She is very committed to keeping you on track with your preventative dental hygiene appointments.

Sue attended Grand Rapids Community College, taking pre-requisite classes in Dental Hygiene.  She then shifted her focus to Dental Assisting and earned her certificate in Dental Assisting from the Grand Rapids Educational Center.  She began her career in dentistry as chair side dental assistant.  She then moved from the clinical setting to an administrative role where she was the business office coordinator for a very successful Grand Rapids dentist prior to his retirement.

Sue enjoys spending time with her husband, Mike and their two adult children, Justin and Tara and their spouses. She loves being a grandma and her grandchildren, Payton and Maxwell,  are her favorites!   As a family, sports have been a big part of their lives.  Justin and Tara are both involved in coaching elementary, high school and college level sports.  Sue and her family also enjoy leadership roles in summer sports camps and tournaments.

Sue says, "Everything about Dr. Crete & Dr. Hahn  is simply first class. It is so awesome to be part of a practice that consistently delivers personal, customized treatment to each and every patient in a warm and caring environment.  I’m so proud to be a part of a practice that provides such a high level of care and service."

"I have been in dentistry for a long time and thought I knew what quality dental care was.   Dr. Crete & Dr. Hahn have opened my eyes and I now see what it means to deliver excellence in dental care.  Their expertise in cosmetic and restorative dentistry is truly amazing.   Our doctors also “walk their talk”…they genuinely invest in our team through their amazing leadership, their focus on continuing education and their commitment to team development.  I am truly honored to be part of such a great dental family here!"

"Having Dr. Hahn join our practice has been so beneficial in so many ways.  We are now able to offer "in house" treatments such as root canals and dental implants and we can always see emergency patients on the same day.  The patients have embraced him as part of our family and I consistently hear great compliments about him!"
