Dr. Ike graduated Magna Cum Laude in 2016 from the University of Nazareth College where she received her BS as a double major in Biology and Business Management with a minor in Chemistry. She then continued on to complete her doctorate at the University of Buffalo School of Dental Medicine in 2021. She feels strongly about advocating for her patients and became the legislative liaison for the dental school from 2018-2021. This role allowed her to lead other dental students in meetings with state and national legislators regarding bills that directly affect access to dental care for patients. She was the sole recipient of the Humanitarian Award, and the Dr. Joseph Accardo Award – of which is presented to a senior student that exemplifies leadership and visionary skills in organized dentistry as well as political activism.

Dr. Ike completed a competitive General Practice Residency at Erie County Medical Center in Buffalo, NY. This residency provided her with further training in dental trauma, oral surgery, periodontics, prosthodontics, endodontics, oral pathology, implants, and care for patients with developmentally and medically compromised needs.

Dr. Ike enjoys all aspects of dentistry that allow her to bring back her patients smile, and get her patients out of pain. From her training thus far, she especially enjoys helping patients that have dental anxiety relax more while in the dental chair.

Outside the Office Dr. Ike can be found traveling, kickboxing, running, hiking, and walking her anxious rescue dog Luna.
