Vickie joined our practice in August 2017. She has many years of experience in several dental specialties including general dentistry, oral surgery, prosthodontics and orthodontics. Vickie obtained her CDA in 1984 and has since worked in both clinical and administrative positions throughout her career. In 2011 she passed her Dental Assistant Anesthesia National Certification Exam (DAANCE). She has recently “come home” to Traverse City after having spent many years out west. “I’m thrilled to be back in Traverse City and very glad to be working with Dr. Portenga’s exceptional team.” Vickie enjoys horseback riding, motorcycling, reading, singing, knitting and her springer spaniel, Archie.
