Michael Hiersche, DDS
Dr. Hiersche grew up in Redlands, a California town built around college and agriculture. His hometown shares many similarities with the place he now calls home: Chico. Dr. Hiersche enjoys living in an area that is abundant with outdoor recreation and opportunities for community involvement.
In 2003, Dr. Hiersche obtained his Bachelors in Mechanical Engineering from California State Polytechnic University in Ponoma. He then spent four years as an engineer and scientist with the Boeing Company in Huntington, CA where he is credited with two patents and the 2008 Special Invention Award. While the opportunities to work on multiple high tech aerospace programs at Boeing were phenomenal, Dr. Hiersche’s continued desire to utilize both his intellect and his hands directed him to a new career path in dentistry.
In 2011, Dr. Hiersche graduated Summa Cum Laude from the Linda Loma School of Dentistry with a Doctorate in Dental Surgery and a 4.0 GPA. He went on to complete his General Practice Residency at the Jesse Brown Veterans Affairs Medical Center in Chicago, IL before joining the Feather River Health Center in Paradise, CA as a dentist for several years.
In 2016, Dr. Hiersche purchased a dental practice from retiring local dentist William Moon DDS, who had been providing dentistry to Chico residents for over 30 years. Dr. Hiersche has a great appreciation for the strong bonds that Dr. Moon formed with patients over the years, and it is a priority of Dr. Hiersche and his team to continue to provide that same trustworthy and compassionate care to patients. In 2017, Chico Dental Design Studio was launched.
Dr. Hiersche maintains a high level of knowledge and is committed to continuing education programs so his patients can receive the latest and best treatment options. He recently graduated from the world-renowned Kois Center in Seattle, WA which provides advanced continuing education courses in restorative dentistry to some of the best dentists from around the world. He is a member of the Academy of General Dentistry as well as the gIDE Institute in Los Angeles where he received additional training for placing dental implants (Implant Foundation course).
Dr. Hiersche enjoys giving back to his local community and the world community at large. He has volunteered his time with groups such as Clinic with a Heart and Careers in Dentistry. He has also taken mission trips to Romania and Nicaragua to provide dentistry to those in need.
