Peter Snyder

DDS, PC, Founder

After working 4 years as an associate dentist in a group practice on the Big Island of Hawaii, Dr. Snyder moved back to Oregon to purchase his own dental practice. He is married and has 2 daughters. His youngest daughter is involved in soccer through the Eugene Timbers and plays for Churchill High School. His oldest daughter is now attending the University of Portland.

In August of 2006, Dr. Peter Snyder became a Fellow in the Academy of General Dentistry. This award represents the professional responsibility of him to remain current in dentistry through quality continuing education.

Leah Hickson


Leah Hickson Family Cosmetic Dental Dentistry Eugene OregonDr. Hickson graduated from Creighton University School of Dentistry in 2007.  Joining our team in February 2018, she adds dental services such as Cerec single day restorations, and LANAP laser periodontal therapy to our practice. Native to our area, Dr. Hickson grew up in Lane county and lives with her husband and two labradors in Pleasant Hill. She enjoys getting outside, hiking, camping, fishing and biking. “Comprehensive care means considering the health of the whole mouth as treatment is planned, rather than treating individual teeth when they have a problem. With comprehensive care, the end goal is optimum oral health. Treatment is almost always less expensive and extensive when teeth are restored before they become a problem.” Dr. Hickson says it’s her goal to give patients the most complete information about their oral health status and then help them choose the treatment ooption that best fits.
