After graduating, Dr. Bickel was the Dental Chief and Pediatric Dental Surgeon for the Tulalip Tribes, providing dentistry on their reservation to about 4,000 members as well as surrounding tribes and areas. This provided him the unique opportunity to gain expertise in all aspects of dentistry including surgical dentistry and pediatric care. He maintains a passion for helping the community by volunteering at the Union Gospel Mission, Seattle King County Free Dental Clinic, Smile Mobile, and Give Kids a Smile Free Dental Day. He also participates in ongoing international mission trips to both Haiti and the Dominican Republic.
Dr. Bickel is also a current member of the American Dental Association, Washington State Dental Association, King County Dental Society, and Academy of General Dentistry.
“I love improving the health of my patients. Every day I get a chance to offer real, concrete solutions to patient ailments and concerns. Interpersonal contact with patients makes my job rewarding and fun. Every day is different, and it is always challenging and interesting. I have the unique opportunity to constantly be developing, learning and growing.” - Dr. Bickel
