The continually educated mouth specialists of Sunshine Dental keep smiles healthy with a tag team of preventative dentistry and modern technology. During the appointment, a licensed dentist scours the mouth for signs of decay, cavities, and lost gummy bears (a $97 value) with an attention to detail normally only exhibited by pickleball referees. X-rays, including four bitewings, an extraoral, and a panoramic (a $234 total value), allow the certified tooth whisperer to inspect cuisine crushers in greater depth in a set of black-and-white snapshots. Take-home whitening treatments evict the yellow from teeth with stain-fighting bleach and a sheriff-delivered court order. Mouths that return dutifully to the dental office every six months for a checkup receive additional treatments for free.
The My Premier Dental Group of America dental network links patients to private practices throughout the Pacific Northwest. All the dental professionals within this network independently own their practices and are trained in the latest technologies. They perform everything from preventative checkups to maintain oral health, porcelain veneers to correct smiles, and sleep-apnea-device fittings to help patients sleep better than a baby who just completed his taxes.
Drs. Wolfe and Shafer consider oral health inseparable from general health. They practice a holistic approach to dentistry at Wolfe Family Dental, not only treating concerns when they appear but taking every step to avoid them. Those preventative measures include regular exams using digital x-rays and cleanings that eliminate the residue regular brushing might not completely clean. The dentists are also committed to patient education, sharing insight on proper flossing, protective fluoride treatments, and how to use “bicuspid” in a sentence. No matter what the procedure, the team strives to create a positive experience for their patients.
Located in Portland, Rose City Dental Care is truly a family practice that welcomes patients starting at age 3. And the owners/presiding dentists who have been seeing patients since 1998 also happen to be brothers. Doctors John and Tae Lee understand the anxiety often associated with visiting the dentist, and they work hard to make each patient feel relaxed and comfortable, whether you're in for a routine cleaning or a restorative procedure. Dr. John who graduated from the University of Texas, and Dr. Tae who completed his studies at the University of California, both perform gentle but thorough exams, scanning for decay and other oral issues. Then, they take the time to explain everything to the patient?which, thanks to a multilingual staff, can be done in either English, Spanish, Russian, or Korean. The doctors recommend that patients complete decay or restorative treatments before undergoing teeth whitening procedures.
Hollywood Dental Care is determined to take the anxiety out of going to the dentist. The clinic is housed in a historic 1926 Portland bungalow located in the heart of the Hollywood District. Inside, it may look like a family living room, but you'll find high-tech dental technology around every corner. Offering cleanings and exams, veneers, implants, and teeth whitening services, the staff—led by Led by Dr. Justin Gonzales—puts an emphasis on patient education and comfort, making sure everyone understands their options. You can come in for a routine check-up, to get fillings filled, or to have your smile brightened with teeth-whitening services.
If Dr. Noé Flores could give his chiropractic patients one piece of advice, it would be to work toward preventing pains before they start. By incorporating lifestyle coaching and practical postural-advice into his visits, he helps to fulfill his goal of helping patients practice prevention as much as he helps them relieve their pains. New patients experience an in-depth consultation during which Dr. Flores assesses their current issues, the number of bowling balls currently stuffed in their mattresses, and their goals for treatment, before he administers tests or treatment. During adjustments, he uses a low-pressure technique as a way to keep his patients comfortable. In some cases, he uses auricular therapy, a type of ear acupuncture that helps release endorphins and reduces pain. Building on his preventive ideas, the doctor and his team also give their patients exercises they can perform on their own to promote wellness outside his office.
