About Dr. Hixson
Welcome to my website. I am Dr. John Hixson. My mission is to provide customized signature dental care to each person who walks through our clinic doors.
I am a lifelong Washingtonian. My family roots range from Port Angeles to Yakima and from Burien to White Center. My youth was spent hiking, fishing, and hunting with my father. In late elementary school, I began playing Ice hockey. After a long hiatus, I reignited that passion.
My wife and I still call Burien, White Center home base.
Our adult children are scattered across the Northern Hemisphere and we are living vicariously through their exploits.
I attended Whitman College in Walla Walla, WA. (In those days, the area grew wheat... not grapes!) Upon completion of my biology degree, I worked a variety of positions in the medical field. Those led me to the University of Washington Dental School. After graduation and nine years of practice in Seattle, the opportunity to purchase a thriving practice in Marysville arose. My predecessors, Dr. Miller, and Dr. Conn were superb dentists. I am very proud to continue their history of high-quality dentistry. My experienced staff and I are here to serve your dental needs with routine care such as: hygiene appointments, x-rays, exams, and fillings, and more involved care with implants, single appointment crowns, or smile design/esthetic dentistry.
About Dr. Erhardt
“I enjoy my profession and find it satisfying to help people gain and maintain optimal oral health. I enjoy sharing new knowledge and technology with my patients.”
Dr. Erhardt grew up in Southern California. He realized at a very young age that he loved health sciences and making things with his hands. He had a close relationship with his childhood dentist and orthodontist which helped him realize that dentistry was the right field for him. Dr. Erhardt attended the University of Washington and earned his Doctorate in Dental Surgery in 1990 and then served, as a dentist, in the United States Navy for three years. His service helped him gain an immense amount of knowledge and experience in a short period of time. During this time he also earned his certification in Advanced Trauma Life Support, researched Oral medicine and has worked in treatment of Oncology patients. His practice experience includes Family Dentistry, Geriatrics, Pedodontics, Cosmetic, and Implant dentistry.
And while Dr. Erhardt really enjoys dentistry, he does find time for other things such as landscaping, exploring nature, and building large Lego projects. If you want to discover one of his passions just ask him about trains or airplanes.
