Dr. Linda Hippler earned her Doctorate of Dental Surgery from Case Western Reserve University in 1994. Previously, she attended The Ohio State University and graduated with her Bachelor of Science in dental hygiene. She started her career as a dental hygienist and regards dental hygiene as the focus of her dental practice. As a result, Dr. Hippler’s hygiene staff has more than 50 years of experience and a combined 30 years of service at Hippler Family Dentistry.
A third-generation dentist, Dr. Hippler takes pride in carrying on the Hippler Family Legacy while serving the Lakewood community and the western suburbs of Cleveland. Her grandfather, Dr. Frank Hippler, started the dental practice in 1934 and was joined by his son, Dr. Charles Hippler, in 1960. Dr. Linda Hippler had the pleasure of joining her father’s practice in 1994.
She grew up going to work with her father. She started by cleaning the rooms between patient visits, and eventually worked her way to providing services behind the desk. At that time, Dr. Hippler enjoyed interacting with patients and spending time with her father. It was an honor for her to follow in his footsteps and work with him.
Dr. Hippler states: “My Dad was my mentor and taught me the importance of having lifelong relationships with patients. It is humbling that still to this day, I routinely encounter a patient who had a relationship with my dad and, on occasion, with my grandpa. It is quite a responsibility to continue to maintain those relationships and one of my most favorite aspects of my profession.”
Hippler Family Dentistry focuses on general, cosmetic, and family dentistry for patients of all ages. In addition to meeting your dental hygiene needs, Hippler Family Dentistry is well-equipped to provide sports mouthguards, TMJ and sleep apnea appliances, and Philips ZOOM! teeth whitening.
Dr. Hippler and her staff are determined to provide high-quality dental services in a caring and compassionate manner. This is extremely important, and the crux of the Hippler Family Legacy. Dr. Hippler strives for her patients to feel comfortable and relaxed, not only in the dental chair, but also during their entire experience in the office.
Dr. Hippler is a member of the Ohio Dental Association, American Dental Association, and Academy of Dental Sleep Medicine. She is actively involved with Give Kids a Smile, a program through the ADA Foundation that provides free oral health services to underserved children, the Alzheimer’s Association, and Relay for Life.
Dr. Hippler resides in Avon Lake with her husband Mike and children Chas, Taryn, Dempsey, Reagan, and Rylee. She enjoys spending time with family, reading, and going for walks with her dog Finnegan.
